Many agents shy away from this part of the job... Frankly - there is no money in it.
Although many renters do convert into "home buyers" - eventually -
Generally seen as: The rate of reward does not exceed the efforts.

I am not in the Portland Market and my comments may not reflect the opinion of others there.

Here we have rentals avg - $2000 month annual and $3500 mo seasonal -
The commission is a fraction compared to a sale commission - ????

Charlie,
Most agents also offer rental services. Contact some agents in your local area and have them provide you with a rental market analysis and explain their services.

Hope this helps.

All the best,

It's not typical to have agents for rentals here. Real Estate agents tend to just do sales, not rentals, as in other states. I'm not sure why this is. Your best bet to look for a rental is on craigslist, or on the various property management company websites. The property management companies just promote their own managed properties (for their owner clients), as far as I know. There doesn't seem to exist a central database of properties for rent.

There are lots of good rental agencies here in Portland. Many property managers are also Realtors. If you send me your detailed requirements telling me what you are looking to spend, how long you want to rent and where you want to live, I will be happy to put you in touch with one of the many rental agencies I work with.
