Homes for Rent in high demand?!


A trend has been happening out there in the rental market, click photo above to read article by Catherine Reager on Arizona Central.  Recently I attended a seminar with Mike Orr of the Cromford Report and he said the same thing… due to the number of families either seller their home short after having lates on their credit or losing their homes to foreclosure, there is a huge need for rental homes. 

If you are an investor, these families would make great tenants because they’ve already owned a home and know how to care and are willing to pay more than before (which is still less than what their previous mortgage was in most cases) so they can still live the same quality of lifestyle that they had before when they were homeowners. 

Luckily for our clients, we have a great partner that diligently works hard to place our clients in rentals if they are not able to purchase right after a short sale.  A Short Sale Myth out there is that you have to damage your credit to prove your hardship and thus while you can short sale, you can’t purchase… 

A recent trend we are seeing with the Short Sale friendly lenders is they will allow someone current on a mortgage to still short sell their home; the catch being is that they usually need to participate in the loss at the closing table- for some it’s worth it.
