I have a 4 bedroom/2 bath house in the Tuckahoe El. School district about 10 blocks away. How much rent
are you planning to spend and how soon are you planning to occupy? Just renovated and in move-in condition.

A good point to remember most agents are SALES people, not rental people, so if you do contact a random agent, don't assume they handle rentals, first ask if they handle rentals, and if they don't, move on to the next agent.

Or

If you really are interested in one specific area to rent for various reasons, try to find a local real estate agency that is actually in that area, and call them and tell the receptionist what you are looking for, a local company should have local rentals.

Here is a template in outlook I email out to folks looking to rent.

"The RichmondVaCondos and RichmondVaTownhouses.com Team understands that for some, it's just not the right time to buy. We ourselves do not handle rentals, rent-to-owns, or lease/options, but we have put together the following listing of companies on the web that provide rental information for your searches:

Hi Susan, I got your email with your number thank you! I'll try and give you a call tomorrow. The kids will be in school so I will have time to talk.:) My family is moving back to the Richmond area. I will be visiting the area the last weekend of this month. I will not be able to view anything until then. I look forward to talking to you soon. We are looking to rent for atleast a year. A lease to buy option would be great, provided we find the right house. We need at least a 3 bedroom and we also have a dog.

Best Regards,
Jennifer

Hi Jen,
One area around the Tuckahoe Elem. School area is called Westham (Westhampton is actually in the city of Richmond). If you would like for me to send you names of other neighborhoods in the Tuckahoe Elem District so you can find houses to rent email me.
You can look for rental houses through my website also.
