Will A Landlord Rent To Me With Bad Credit?

Posted on Dec 14, 2011 in Roseville and Sacramento Short Sale FAQs

Welcome, I’m Mark Peek with Keller William’s Real Estate; I’m your short sale specialist in the Roseville and Sacramento area. Every year I help people avoid foreclosure by short selling their home and I’d like to help you, as well.

Recently I’ve had a lot of clients come to me that are behind on the mortgage payments and interested in doing a short sale, however they are worried that their bad credit, caused by their missed mortgage payments, will keep someone from renting to them. Many are concerned the property managers won’t even talk to them. In the past there’s been an idea that you had to have good credit to be able to rent since most property managers run a credit check on you. However, with the way the real estate market has been lately, a majority of people have hits on their credit from foreclosures, short sales, liens, medical reasons, etc. Because of the poor real estate market lately and the fact that so many people have had to either go through foreclosure or a short sale, landlords and rental property managers are understanding and are willing to work with people to help them find a suitable and affordable place for them to live. There’s no need to worry that doing a short sale on your home is going to negatively affect you finding a place to rent after your home is sold.

If you have any other concerns about renting a property after a short sale, or have questions or would like information about anything else pertaining to real estate and short sales, please contact me today. I am here to help you find the right solution to your difficult financial situation and can provide you with the experience and knowledge that you deserve when it comes to short selling your home.
