  • You gotta watch that foreclosure thing. Those can be tricky. Down here in S FL there are people renting and the owners are in foreclosure even tho they paid on time. As mean as it sounds you'll open up your opportunities if you get rid of the dog.

  • you would have to get rid of the dog....but section 8 apartments can actually be nice in many cities and rent is based on your income....also, you might qualify for HUD vouchers and can use them anywhere the landlord accepts them, even for a house....just check with your local "housing authority"

  • 1. Habitat for Humanity
    2. Foreclosures
    3. Move to a cheaper state (Alabama, West Virginia)
