Looking for a long-term (6 months +) rental? If we have any available properties, they will be listed on the front page, left hand column. If there are no links with addresses for you to click on, that means all my properties are rented. Sorry! Thank you for checking with me! I have some property hunting suggestions below.
First, you can email me and let me know what you are looking for: # bedrooms/bathrooms, how many people, price range and move-in date. If I have anything, I will let you know immediately. If I do not have anything, I will let you know that, too! Email is best.
We doesn’t have a multiple listing service for rental property like we do for sale property, so there’s no way for me to help you find a place. Here are some tips on how to get the best home for you:
- Looking months in advance can be an exercise in frustration. Most of the time, we don’t know a tenant is leaving until 60 days before they do. And most of our tenants renew! If you look months in advance, you MIGHT hit on a property where everyone knows the tenant will be leaving, but this is not usually the case. Unless a property is way overpriced, it will rent within 30 days of being advertised.
- Check Craig’s List and the daily newspapers online everyday. You never know when a new listing will show up!
- Ride through neighborhoods and look for rental signs in windows or on fences. Many local owners don’t advertise their rental properties, they just put out a sign.
- Call all the property managers/real estate companies to see what we have available or coming up. GET OUR EMAIL ADDRESS IF YOU DON’T ALREADY HAVE IT.
- Then email us every few days, see what’s new. You never know when one of us will get a new listing. NOTE: We want to know of good, persistent tenants, but if you call all the time, you will make us crazy. Email is best!!!
- Be prepared to move quickly on a place. Good rentals go fast.
- Don’t rent sight unseen. VERY bad idea.
- We don’t rent to tenants we have not met face-to-face and who has not walked through the property. EVER. You need to see the place you’ll be living in, and we need to eyeball YOU. So if you are out of town, don’t call me on an ad unless you are going to be here to see the place and we can meet.
Any questions, please contact me. Good luck in your search!
