I forgot to mention, My company, AMSI, is one of the few Real Estate Firms in SF who specialize in Sales, Rentals and Leasing, but bottom line, it's all about consideration. You know what they have to say about money and what the bull leaves behind.

Raise the offering price. They will respond and you will be in a position to negotiate

Hi all. I appreciate your answers. I have not yet encountered any listings with phone numbers. If I do, I'll certainly call. Otherwise, I'll utilize other methods for searching for a place to rent.

Thanks,

I think your best bet is to work with a property management company or a real estate agent that does rentals.

Good luck,

I find that a phone call, to the agent is far more effective.

But I would strongly recommend that you find your own agent to represent you... and they will make sure they get timely responses from those agents.

Good luck.

Have you tried looking those rental up on craigslist.com as well? There are few well known real estate companies in San Francisco that specialize in rentals or property management. Some of the rental agents represent the landlords only, while others work with the tenants and find them properties.

I am not a leasing agent, but I can point you to few companies if interested.

Good luck!

Hi Peter,
I agree with Lance and Laura that Trulia is not the best place to find rentals. Good luck and be careful of scams.

Using trulia for rentals seems to be a nightmare for everyone. We get bombarded with contacts for rental requests when we don't deal with them and renters don't get responses. I would use another service

Most Realtors don't deal with rentals. I would contact someone that specializes in rentals. You can hire someone and typically the Landlord pays their fee for finding a qualified tenant.
Check into property management companies in your local area. Good luck.
