Please email me with some specifications on what you are looking for in your home and I will let you know what is available.
Since you are moving in mid-March, unless the landlord has a paying tenant in the house until your move-in date or atleast around then, they may or may not be willing to hold the house for you - just thought you should know. If you are willing to sign a lease earlier than the mid-March date, in case a house you like becomes available, you can possibly make it work.
Best Wishes and Happy New Year!
In the last 6 months I've rented homes inside the 610 Loop with several clients that were new to the market and expected to move within 2 months. So I set up searches on the HAR (Houston Association of Realtors) website to provide information daily on homes that met their requirements. This was absolutely necessary because the homes were going off the market so rapidly that the only way they could have expected to get the property that fit was to already have a good idea of a suitable property to make an offer.
Your need for a large dog to be accepted may limit to some degree the available homes; just as smokers have a hard time finding a rental. The length of the rental period can also be an advantage. There several other factors--deposits, move-in date (mid month more expensive) and certainly work and transportation are important consideration.
We've lived and worked in Real Estate for over 30 years and would be glad to assist in finding you a home.
I have a rental in Spring Branch not far from 610, and there are many rental options out there for you. Check out our websites and choose the Realtor you feel most comfortable with to represent you.
I have bought, sold, and leased in the Innerloop area and know it well.
Feel free to send me an email if you wish.
My name is Mollie our office is located inside the loop and I would be honored to help find a nice rental house for you and your 70 pound dog.
As soon as you can email me your email address I will begin sending you properties. When you email also include your price point, number of bedrooms, etc. Oh, also if your have to have a garage.
Thank you for your inquiry and I wish you good health, happiness and prosperity for 2013.
