Administrator answers:

Craigslist is the right source for this. $1500 sounds low, so you may need to share.

Paul asks…

ssi rent and no credit score?

Hi! im currently in the state of Michigan in Grand Rapids.
Im planning to move in a studio apartment at Wingates Apartments

the monthly rent for a studio apt is $390 a month.
My only source of income is SSI dissability
i get $675 a month plus $200 in food benefits.
and my question is about the credit score
i never owned anything with credit
so i dont have any credit
this would be my first time getting an apt.
is there a chance i will get the apartment?

Administrator answers:

Unless you are receiving a rent subsidy you won’t, you do not have enough money to pay the rent.

I got this from their site,

“?An application may be denied for poor or insufficient credit, insufficient income or assets, negative rental history, or criminal history. “

You will not meet the income or the credit qualification, as your will literally read “insufficient information”.

Betty asks…

Why do Americans work hard to pay for a house if they can’t take it with them when they die?

I am 22 yrs old & I like to save $ but do not like to spend because i can’t take anything with me. So why is it that people bust their butts for decades to pay off a mortgage when in reality they cant take anything with them?

I live in apartments & rather pay $400 rent for a studio apt then $1,500 for a mortgage…

Administrator answers:

Thats stupid maybe so you not paying your whole life for something you’ll never when the you lose your job in this recession and possibly depression or you cant work anymore you wont be kicked out on the street because all that money you paid went toward nada

Lisa asks…

should i stay in my apt. or move out of it? my rent was raised!?

Okay, so when I moved into my studio apt. in studio city, California I was paying 1050 a month. A bit on the expensive side but it’s a really nice apt. It’s a renovated pool rec room so it has lots of windows and a fireplace, plus utilities are included. which is a large plus because i suck up a lot of power. Oh and my place is rent controlled as well. In the area the average cost for a studio is 795 – 950. Now, for a one bedroom it can go from 850 – 1000 in roughly the same area and same deal but they’re really pretty boring looking.

Recently, my rent has been raised to 1100 and that’s about the max I’m willing to pay no matter how beautiful my place is. This may be asking the obvious but should i just move out? I really like this place but i know there is cheaper stuff out there literally blocks away.

Administrator answers:

It sounds like you really like where you live and the only thing you’re objecting to is the rent increase. If you’ve been a good tenant (pay rent on time, take care of the apartment, no complaints from neighbors), then you may want to try to leverage that by asking your landlord to not increase your rent. If you’re a good tenant, chances are pretty good that they’ll say “yes” because $50/month isn’t that big an increase.

They may say “no” but it wouldn’t hurt to ask.

Thomas asks…

Can you recommend some neighborhoods in the Bronx?

I would like to rent a studio or one bed room apt and want a fairly convenient commute to Bronx-Lebanon Hospital at 1650 Grand Concourse. I have a car but also am willing to use a bus or subway. Safety is important so low or lower crime areas would be preferred. Thanks for your suggestions.

Administrator answers:

Riverdale and Throggs Neck are your best bets. Avoid Melrose, Tremont, Mott Haven, Soundview, West Farms, Hunts Point
