Most all listings for lease are one year minimum but I have negotiated longer and shorter terms. Two years is generally the maximum. We manage over 100 homes and work with clients looking to lease in all southwest Houston area. Do you know the lease value of that home? Don't trust Trulia or Zillow as they are always wrong. No math algorithm can calculate the value of anyone's home. If you want to know how much those sites are off just go to our website blog or search Google for accuracy of zillow. You will find our study comparing actual sales.
