  • Would you refuse to rent to someone who had a DUI charge and a possession of marijuana charge?

    if I did a background check and this came up? Should I ask them to explain or just move to the next applicant?

  • Pay off mortgage faster while saving on interest?

    I have a 30-year fixed rate mortgage. In addition to making my monthly mortgage payments, if I pay towards my principal, will I save on interest? If yes, does that mean once the principal amount has been paid off, there is no more interest?

  • When the prices of houses come down will rent also go down?

    I would certainly think it would if we have a housing crash like we've had before.

  • Why are so many rentals listed with property management companies?

    Don't owners ever manage their own properties anymore & want to show them themselves? It's difficult to deal with property management companies & be able to view rentals. They seem to also have way too many rules & regulations. We would like to be able to meet the owners & see if we like them.

  • To landlords, what would you do if your brand new tenant asked for their complete money back, within 24 hours of signing the lease?

    You already have turned away other possible tenants, but they do seem troublesome right from the beginning. What is the best and fair way, for the landlord to handle this situation? Advice needed. Thanks.

    I have about 8,000 in savings. I make around 1600 a month. I get other jobs here and there other than my full time job, but they all vary monthly.

This is a one bedroom because I’d rather live alone if I can, but I may end up rooming with someone depending on money. I’m just not sure if i can afford it, help?

  • How to move to a new city with no money?

    How do you move to a new city (such as Los Angeles, New York City, Chicago, or Seattle) where you don't know anyone, don't have a job or housing lined up, and the only money you have is for a plane/bus ticket there and for a days worth of food? How can you get housing there and a job quickly/easily?

    I ve lived in a nice condo for 3 years with my husband and daughter and our pets. We rent for 1400 a month nothing included. Which for my area is pretty low rent. Right before my wedding in July our landlord tells us they are selling the condo and we have to be out by the end of august. They said it was nothing to do with us but they just decided this was best for them. So we had no time to go apartment hunting because I was about to get married then going on a honeymoon right after. So we just got back from our honeymoon and every place in our area is really high rent so we thought we might move in with my husband s parents because they have two extra bedrooms but obviously as a married couple with a child and pets we would like our own space. It would be nice to be able to save money for a while and stop wasting money on rent and buy a house eventually. I would have to rent a storage unit for all of our furniture and a lot of our belongings because there would be no place to put them in his parents house. This morning though I ended up finding an apartment complex that had a 2 bedroom available but it is nearly 1800 a month with Heat & hot water included and there is a fee for pets and parking. It would be nice to have our own space though. So I m looking for help deciding if we should move in with his parents and save money to eventually buy a house but lose out on our personal space or go with the apartment and not be able to save much money. Thank you for any advice

  • If I make 60k a yr can I afford a 300k home?

    Best answer: If your credit is good and you have stable employment you could likely get a mortgage for three times your annual pay ($180k in your case). You'd need a big down payment. $200k is a more reasonable target price. Even at that, I wouldn't take a mortgage as big as three times my annual salary. You'd be... show more

You'd need a big down payment. $200k is a more reasonable target price. Even at that, I wouldn't take a mortgage as big as three times my annual salary. You'd be house-poor for many years, especially if you don't get decent pay raises.

    It seems like all landlords just want to collect the rent and not fix or take care of anything, or they want to know everything about you and be in your business constantly. My current landlord calls me at least 5 times everyday to talk about nothing, stops me everytime i go in or out, asking me where im going or coming from and how long ill be gone, if someone comes to pick me up they're like who was that? how long have you known her? i even dropped my keys once in the kitchen and they immediately called me to ask me what i dropped. this is getting out of hand, i just want to go to work and come home and be left alone. god forbid if i dont answer their phone calls they will come up and bang on my door. am i overreacting? is it too much to just want to be left alone?
