As to the credit, much depends on the individual landlord/building, each is different and some are stricter than others. Perhaps you could consider offering extra security deposit, possibly pre-pay some of the rent, or of all else fails, consider a guarantor.... more
Taxes valuation formulas? What does it mean?I get letters, every now and then from NYC Dept of finance that explains what criteria used to calculate my current property taxes. However I do not understand those numbers.
How many locks are you looking to get replaced? What types of locks are you wanting to get put in? I think that would be the best questions to ask so you have a quote of a price in mind. That way you can shop around and get exactly what you want for the price you have in mind. http://www.davieslocksmiths.com/commercial.html... more

Rent to buy may also be called Lease to Buy; Renters pay a certain amount each month to live in the house, and at the end of an agreed upon period they have the option to buy the house. Each month of rent they pay is income for the seller, while a portion of it goes toward a down payment to eventually buy the home. Be aware that many contracts in rent-to-buy situations disallow late rental payments from counting toward an eventual sale. People with on time payment issues might lose equity when making late payments. Before you enter into this sort of arrangement talk long and hard with your real estate attorney, consider all the liabilities, and have a complete understanding of what's involved. Rent to buy can be helpful, but shouldn't be entered into by anyone who isn't serious about eventually buying the home, otherwise it will end up costing you more money in fees, and above-market rent payments.... more
When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local authorities with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.
Credit is important when trying to secure a mortgage, but other types of debt matter as well (student loans). As long as you have a good credit score as well a substancial amount of savings, and good income you should be fine. All of those things will deter main how much you can be approved for. If you have any questions you can give me a call at 917-272-4443... more
Some landlords don't really care about the credit score. What they look for is to see if you have ever been evicted and/or move often in the past 5 years. Other than that it should not be that difficult to get an apartment in that price range. If interested you can give me a call at 917-272-4443 and I will have no problem helping you figure this out.... more
