I have so far over 20 lease listings this year and a lot of times agents and applicants ask me how they can prepare strong applications that will be accepted by landlords. Actually, the answer is very simple - Follow the Instructions and be Straight Forward with the landlords. Most of the time, the listing agent include the required document for application in the MLS remarks.  The common requirements are C.A.R. (California Association of Realtor) application or any formal written application form, recent credit report within 30 days that also show the credit scores, and most recent 2 pay stubs for income verification. Some rental agencies might charge an application fee and some might not.  The rental screening fee is usually between $25 to $50 a person.  (C.A.R. advised cannot charge...

West Covina Residential Real Estate sales drop drastically compared to August. West Covina is experiencing a somewhat extraordinary sales pattern - while most other cities experienced a big drop in Residential Real Estate Sales from July to August, West Covina Real Estate Sales actually increased significantly from July to August, from 56 to 74 sales (West Covina Homes and West Covina Condos). However, the declining demand seems to have caught up with the city in September, showing only 54 successfully closed Escrows (including West Covina Homes as well as West Covina Condos)*. The most significant amount of West Covina Home Sales (Single Family Residences) remains in the price range between $300,000 and $400,000. The good news, as with most cities in the Greater Whittier Area, is that ...
