Hello Christine, that address comes up not for sale or rent so it is not available. What is the search criteria you are looking to fulfill?

If you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment/price you are looking to achieve any agent can email listings to fit your search criteria. Your email address is needed to set you up for the automatic daily updates.

The rentals in 95823 start from $1,450 for 3bd 2ba single family home. The purchase in 95823 start from 199k for 4bd 2ba 1521sf single family home.

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.

Hello Linda, if it shows up on your credit you may have to put additional deposit. If it is a judgement you would have to be in payment arrangement through the courts and have had made a minimum three payments to get this issue able to qualify for a mortgage.

You may qualify to buy with down payment and closing cost assistance programs with less than first, last and security deposit of any rental. You could study RENT vs BUY listings to compare your options and put together a game plan.

If you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment/price you are looking to achieve any agent can email listings to fit your search criteria. Your email address is needed to set you up for the automatic daily updates.

There is only one person who benefits from dual agency and that is the real estate agent. If you find an agent trying to defend dual agency run for the hills. There is one word to describe this kind of agent and that is GREED.

With dual agency a buyer and seller give up having representation. The exact reason why so many people hire an agent to begin with. In the web reference, you will see one of the most detailed posts on dual agency ever written.

Take my advice and stay away from this arrangement!

Kathy Burgreen answered:
You cannot be so picky when looking for a rental. Your priority should be how much is the average 2 bedroom rental in midtown Sacramento. More than $2,000. or less than $2,000. If it's more than $2,000. what difference does it make if a washer/dryer is included? You can't afford it anyway. If the average 2 bedroom is less than $2,000. then you can try to find one that includes a washer/dryer.

Since I'm not in CA, my feeling is you are looking for a rental that you can't afford. In the New York City area, residents living in rental buildings do their laundry in the laundry room located in the basement or ground floor. If they can do it, so can you.

You need to work with a realtor who can search the MLS for rentals with a washer/dryer. Trulia is just a media website that allows owners and realtors to post listings for sale or rent. Trulia will not email you with rental listings that fit your criteria.

Its been over 2 years since these charge offs have been on my report. I already own 3 homes and my credit score was at 720 until I got into this credit card rut. Do lenders need to run a credit report to pre-qualify me for a home loan. ... more
