My suggestion would be to find a real estate agent to work with. Agents have the most up to date info regarding homes that are currently available. With the market being as crazy at it is, a lot of the websites out there can't keep up with the changes in status. It doesn't cost you anything to work with an agent but the benefits are huge. Hope this helps! ... more

The short answer would be no. Credit history is always used to determine risk.

I would call whichever place you are interested in, let them know your situation, and then be open to paying a double security deposit.

Formula for that is = price it at market value (or below if you're in a huge hurry to rent it out) and market it correctly (i.e. in places where majority of renters look for rentals).

The compute is no more than 10-15 minutes depending on traffic and depending on the gate and/or access point you use. Depending on the time of day (Rush Hour) it could also be much quicker.

Thank you

For the property and price range, you will be about 1 to 1.5 hours from Arlington. Farm type homes on acreage are further south or west. That being said, you may have a tough time finding a rental property owner that will allow you to have more than 1 or 2 dogs. Pet deposits per dog run $300-500, plus your regular security deposits. In that payment range, you could own a home for under $2,000 per month. Considering the length of time you would rent, why not buy? Rental prices are typically higher than a mortgage payment on the same property. With home prices still fairly low and mortgage rates at historical lows, you could get a great property. Happy to discuss further - send me an email at with your contact info and I'll give you a call! ... more

I applaud you for going the rental route if you are not sure how long you'll be in Norfolk. While too many REALTORS just automatically recommend buying, I usually advise members of the military to rent unless they are reasonably sure they will be stationed here for at least 5 years or are prepared and able to be long distance landlords in the event they are transferred. The roughly 10% cost to sell a property would eat up most of your equity unless homes appreciate by more than 3% over the next few years (estimates have generally been closer to 2%-3% with no guarantees).That said, it is generally as cheap or cheaper to buy than rent and rents have gone up considerably with additional increases expected in the near future. Depending on the size of your family, the 700-1000 dollar rent might be unrealistically low for a single family home but might be about right for a smaller apartment. I'll be glad to help but you're likely to be urged by others to buy. Proceed with caution and thanks for your Service to our Nation! ... more

My search found that this condo is not currently available for rent. My question to you is, Do you know it could be cheaper for you to buy a condo such as this in lieu in renting? Please contact me at 757-849-4619 to arrange a convenient time for us to meet to discuss the benefits of owning verses renting. ... more
