I'd be REALLY careful with anyone ever asking for you to send money. These people are usually scammers. If they will not meet with you to show the property, it's definitely hokey pokey. There is some great information here about what to look for with scams. Never send money or wire money, and never listen to people who claim they will "send" keys. You can also tell a lot by the grammar, punctuation and presentation of the ad. ... more

I would actually recommend using rentometer.com to try and find out how much you should raise the rent or what you should be charging. You can get rent averages within specific radiuses in cities. Rent can really depend on the actual neighborhood, how many bedrooms, etc. and they let you change the radius on their app. Then of course, you would need to take into account whether or not you've renovated it, if it's outdated, etc. If you haven't done much maintenance or done much to improve the property then you'd want to charge less than the average, of course; and if you've made a bunch of major renovations you can charge more for rent than your neighbors and people will be okay with it.

TLDR; the average I found for your area is $1829 for a 2 bedroom within a 1.34 mile radius of Tujunga.

Depends on the property type, size, location and much much more. Try to rent with lease agreement. It will be easier for you and guarantee your rights.

Hi,

At this time, unfortunately, we currently do not have listings for rent to own homes. You may try your luck though and search our website using the Keyword section of the search filter which can be found in the All Filters button. However, these listings are extremely rare.

I am curious to see how you all agree or disagree, I came across this blog to see what typical rent would be, I'm 21 and live at home, am a full time student, and work between 40-90 hours a week (60 being avg.) I pay for my own car, car insurance, health insurance, gasoline, food, tuition, laundry detergent, basic hygiene items
The house is currently under construction throughout, my room currently doesn't have a crawling or walls, and have been sleeping on the couch for two weeks, whatever not a big deal, rent was proposed and the number I heard was 750$ per month
Also to add, house rules currently are that nobody is allowed to stay over, must have permission for anyone to stop in, not aloud to drink at home, I MUST come home directly after work to assist with house projects( that I can't do physical by myself)
Giving these circumstances do any of you parents out there agree or disagree with this number? Or should I just move out

Hello Parkergoddard, most likely if it is to good to be true it probably isn't true. An address can be verified with any licensed agent as to who you should be dealing with and their credentials.

Beware of the many rental scams out there these days on all sites. The scams are on all of the rental listing sites except one that us agents/broker use such as mls, multiple listing service.

You should not give anyone any funds or personal information without confirming with a licensed agent/broker or management company to find out whom you should be dealing with and the status of any address of interest.

You should study RENT vs BUY options as you may qualify to buy and pay less than rent in many local cities. You may qualify to buy with less than first, last and security deposit of any rental with down payment and closing cost assistance programs.

It depends on the landlord. Usually you'd need to be making at least three times the rent amount.
