I have to be out feb 1. As my last post on this Subject my landlord sold his home and the New people want to move in .Here my problem Yes I did put a add on Craigslist. But Im still Getting scam. I just had a email this person say They have a house for sale but live to far away So as right now they wNt to rent it out. But the ad say just drve by there no o e to show the home This i know is other scam they get the upfront money deposit etc then take off with that money. My othet problem is I only can afford $500. A mont in rent. But now the going rate is over$700 a month for a bedroom this is out of my budget

Go through an agency? They charge more, but you probably won't be scammed.

The agency charges the First month rent in other word If the rent is $500. A month that The fee for the I would need security Deposit.$500.first month rent $500.last month rent $ agency fee $500. This what I need up front to just rent a bedroom in some one home. That one of my problem s i do.not have any up front money. In my area of up state New York this is how everything works..and I pnly can afford $500 a month at this time but most bedrooms in some one home people wabr $700 a month for a bedroom this is not a joke.

If you believe in the Power of Prayer, pray and believe something is going to come up. Rents are very expensive everywhere. Now that you have to have a Business license, etc to really be able to rent a room in this area and pay $$ each yr to do so, it is hard to rent out a room for just this much unless you buy a home to live in and also just rent out rooms. Around here unless you get lucky most people request Deposit and Rent which is usually over $1000 at least. Just be honest with people when you talk with them, and something is bound to come up.
