I’ll try to make this short. I’m not necessarily looking for money per se. My wife and I are in financial trouble. I lost my good paying job in 2015 and ended up having to take a lower paying job because my unemployment was about to run out. My wife can’t work because she is physically impaired and unable to work out in the work force. We currently live in a nice two bedroom apartment in Santa Clarita, but since the new owners took over, the rent has been increasing rapidly, currently paying $1870/ month. Now our rent has jumped to $2400/month. We just can’t afford it. So, we’ve been looking for another apartment and after applying to a few, we found that my income is not enough to qualify. We even tried to downgrade to a one bedroom and still can’t qualify. We are at our wits end and at the moment considering moving out to Palmdale where the rent is cheaper. Unfortunately, that would result in a 2 hour or more commute each way to work.
With that said, my wife and I are looking for an apartment in the Santa Clarita that rents for about $1800/Month. We have a small dog and a cat, so we would need to have a patio or balcony. I’m 58 and my wife is 50. We’re hoping someone out there can provide us with a rental home until we can get back on our feet. We need to be out of our current apartment on July 31st. Please understand, we’re not looking for a hand out…what ever costs the you would incur while helping us would be paid back once I start making more money…and that could happen in a big way in the next several months.
Please feel free to contact me and I will be happy to provide additional info.
