If you're looking for homes for rent in Florida then we are happy to see you and will hopefully soon welcome you to the sunshine state. Where should you look for these elusive homes for rent? Where are the best cities and what can you expect to pay?
The best places to live in Florida, if you can live anywhere are The Tampa FL and Orlando FL greater metropolitan areas. If you take the minute or two to watch the video above you will see me explain why in detail.
After deciding where you want to live you will no doubt begin your research. That research will possibly include the crime, traffic, cost of living and the public schools. Most crime is avoidable, traffic is always bad at certain times of day, the cost of living is a little high for housing but there is no state income tax. The best way to research the schools is online and greatschools.org or one of the many sites like it.
This is the fun part or atleast it can be. Most people will visit 4-8 homes before they make their choice. In Florida you're better off making the choice quickly of your request may end up in a pile of others. Below are some tips to help you get started.
If you end up working with me I have many more tips for you. They will also help you save money and potentially get most or all of your deposit back.
This part is rather challenging. Even if you try to get the listing agent's phone number they probably will not answer. If that is the route you go be sure to make note of the office they are working for so if needed you can try to call it instead. Normally on Zillow or Realtor etc. the Listing agents are listed at the top of the other Realtors. The 3 links below re to the greater metro areas of those cities. You can easily navigate through them and each has a lightening fast searching system.
Because the amount that owners pay for Realtors to find tenants is so minimal, often hard to collect and people will want to view so many homes before deciding many Realtors will not assist you. If they do they are going to go broke fairly shortly in many instances.
I will assist you if I am available but I will want you to do one of two things. Agree in writing to use my services when you purchase a home later or pay the brokerage I work for $250 for each day we work together viewing homes. The many will have to be in advance but it it will be returned to you with great service and if you use my services later when you purchase a home I will not charge you a brokerage fee. When you look at it that way it is actually a free service. I've been doing this for years and trust me it works great. Contact me and we can speak on the phone about what to expect when working with a Realtor and searching for homes for rent in Florida.
