How hard is it to get an apartment with a foreclosure and ok credit?

I need to be out of my house in three months due to foreclosure. I will be within the timeframe of needing to leave so as not to be evicted. How hard is it to get an apartment with this background? Outside of the foreclosure, my credit is fine, i,e. I pay my bills, etc. and I have a full-time job.

    You could see if you qualify for a government loan modification. Maybe they can help you keep your house for a lower payment. There are like 3 or 4 different programs. You can learn more at

    added: I forgot to say that if you have to rent somewhere and your credit is kinda bad, stick to renting a house from a private landlord. Apartments are companies that have strict guidelines on who gets approved, they go only by numbers not your character or your story. A private home owner trying to rent his or her house out will be a little more understanding about your situation and more likely to rent to you.

    Might I suggest some help for you? Go to and look for the ELP (endorsed local provider) in your area. Here’s the link:

    You may get more pointers and advice to help you to ease your foreclosure issue or at least get a 2nd opinion.

    As far as getting an apartment, you may just want to save a stack of cash for where ever you intend to live. You may also want to consider renting a room in a house.

    Good luck!
