So with a forclosure on my record am I doomed to not find a rental?

MTaylor, I don't mean for my answer to be flippant because I know that you are sincere in trying to find a rental, but I've discovered through life that money speaks volumes, can make and change people's minds, and it is a universal language. When there is a wad of moola staring at a person, it's pretty difficult to turn the offer down. I would keep going until I find someone that would rent to me and I would try to have a good sum of money on hand and pre-pay several months rent, etc. I think it is ridiculous that a foreclosure would doom you to anything; I think felons get more breaks it seems. I sincerely wish you the best; do not focus on the foreclosure, go out and get the rental that you want, and keep going until you find the one. Good luck.

IME, from living here for a few years, I can safely say that money talks. Offering to front a sizable deposit may get you into the rental you want.

I didn't mean to sour this thread with my own bad experiences. Unfortunately,I just haven't had the best of luck when it comes to finding owners who actually care about their tenants.

I believe there must be someone out there who will be happy to cut you a break. Housing is competitive here, however, there are times I have seen apartments go empty and owners will bend rules to get them filled up.

I go to apartments.com to read reviews that people have written regarding the places they have rented from. It can be a wealth of information, in finding out just what kind of a place you are moving into, and who you will be dealing with.

Good luck

The best way to (try)and rent in Yucaipa is to #1, have A1 paper,even for a run down little house.If you have any (type) of Bill on your credit even medical or a minor phone bill you will be turned down.I know I tried to rent for 3 plus monthes. Almost every day looking and talking to owners and agents.I had a $800. phone bill on my credit plus some hospital bills.I was told by every agent to come back after I paid them off.So I guess you might as well live in a homeless shelter for a few years while you repair your credit and then come back to Yucaipa and try to rent then.And yes Yucipa agents are very rude and pompas.
