Clyde has a great answer for you here and so does Donna. In addition to what they have said, I would suggest that you let an agent know your time-table, how long you plan on being in Minot, and your familial situation. Like, do you have pets? Tough to rent something decent if you have animals because most places wont rent to you. Kiddos and ages? You will probably want to be close to a good school. If you can be patient, there are better deals to be had as inventory has been creeping up, and buyers have more options with all thats been happening here (new construction and development). Do you know that there are rehabilitated flooded homes? Lots to cover. I typically suggest that people land here, rent if you can short term, get acclimated, feel out the market, and go from there. Contact a few good local agents if you havent already and get the scoop on our market. On my website I have a list of local rental companies, you can use that and make a few phone calls to get scoop on the rental market. http://www.drewwierson.com
