Well, I thiink I will rent another year, and this is why........

Response
Your situation makes sense as long as you dont anticipate home prices to continue to rise in your area next year and beyond. If you start to see prices increase, perhaps consider a foreclosure or a 203k property. You can buy a property for a low amount, then get up to $35k to use on the home for renovations. If you buy in the right area for the right price, your equity potential will be quite good!

A buyers agent will work for you and represent your best interests... Once you build a relationship with your agent, they will be able to search on your behalf and know what you will like or dislike. Ultimately, saving you time!

How do you rent with bad credit?

Answer
You might want to try a private landlord. Try looking on Craigslist or in a local newspaper. Sometimes owners/landlords, etc will work with someone if they can provide other proof of ability to pay rent on time. Strong rental history, steady employment, references letters, etc, can all make a difference in one's decision. Also, offering an extra deposit can also help the situation.
