Long term rental is a rental for a year as opposed to a week. We have 20,000 homes here on the oceanfront that we rent to families on a weekly basis and we call homes that offer a 6 month or longer lease as long term. The others are called weekly or summer rentals. We do not offer any rental information on the MLS at all --- NONE. The weekly rentals are all done by vacation rental management companies and not through the MLS but through their own websites. Those owners who rent to people for a yearly lease have to use Craig's List or newspaper ads or private websites because the MLS only offers homes for sale.
Add an addendum to the lease or in the lease that tenant agrees to sign a new lease with xyz terms within 90 days of termination of current lease, or state the tenant has first right of acceptance to extend the lease period under agreed terms...
All the best Tim~
