Get a quote from a couple of property managers in the area, you might even end up using one of them.

Great responses!! Here is another idea to try. Go to Craig’s List and put in the zip code for the area you are inquiring about. True you may get a ton of homes to choose from but look for the ones which have a DRE# attached to them. These are either Property Managers or Realtors vs. the ones without who may be owners trying it on there own and may have the property over priced.

Another option besides rentometer is to go to the website of one of the local property management companies such as and see if there are any comparable homes in that area and how much in general they seem to be asking. If there is only one comparable in the area, it may not be accurate because that particular owner may think they are going to get more or less than what it's worth. But if there are several, it can help you to get a good idea.

I'd need an address and a Zip Code....

Here's a tip for you... Check out you can put in your address and the number of bedrooms only and it will let you know if your proposed rent is too high or too low...

There's a map that comes up on the right side of the screen that you can zoom into and mouse over the icons to see what the competition is... They show you the streets but not the addresses.. but you can kind of guess where they are...

I hope this helps....

Make it a great day...

What area in Sacramento? There is a huge variance in the average asking prices from one area to another.
