Remember those days when you were looking for a house to rent and you would run to the nearest 7-11, grab a newspaper and start circling rentals in the classifieds? Wait..newspaper? Do those still exist? With technology running rampant where would one look to find a real estate rental that is available? Well, the internet, of course
1. Craigslist - If you haven't heard of Criagslist, it is a free classified listing service. You can find everything from farm animals and cars to wedding gowns and rental homes. It's very much like the old classifieds in the newspaper, but online and national.
2. Internet Listing Services - Companies like Vast, Trulia and Oodle supply a platform to create listings for rental properties for free. The drawback is that there are so many listings that it is very easy to get overwhelmed with the options.
3. The best way to find the perfect rental is right on your real estate agents personal website. Here you are able to see all the information available on the rental listing including virtual tours, educational facilities that are nearby, listing dates and in some cases the walk score of the neighborhood.
It is always best practice to hire a real estate professional to help you with all your real estate needs. They will represent YOUR needs when it comes to the paperwork, the money, the type of home that you are looking for and sealing the deal.
