Hi Carla,
As mentioned it is a big help to you have a Realtor looking for properties for you. The McKinney & Frisco areas are very hot rental markets and anything decent goes in just a few days. I do many rentals around the area and I have an information sheet I can send you on the usual requirements. If you have any credit issues as many people do these days, it is a good idea to write a letter explaining the circumstances - many times my clients have gotten a home due to their letter to the landlord. ]
You will want to start looking around mid August or later, as if you are too early a landlord will not hold a property for you especially if vacant.]
Let me know if you would like me to set you up with an automated search of rentals, I would be happy to do so.

Best regards,

Hi Carla-

Since the available rental inventory is down it is very competitive to get in a rental home. A real estate agent can go to bat for you and represent you to the agent/Landlord and negotiate the selection process if your credentials are good.

You can contact the listing agent/management company directly by responding to the information on Trulia or other websites, but those are not updated as often and don't always have current information, such as if the home is already leased.

By using an agent, whose commission is paid by the landlord, you will have access to current information. So when a property for rent goes on the market and in MLS your agent can notify you on day one by sending you the listing information via email.

My last 4 rental clients got their application in on the 1st day the home was listed and most were approved that evening or the next day at the latest. During that time, the management company received MANY other applications.

By using me, my clients got a great home and got their application in first, and approved quickly.

I would be happy to assist you in the search for a new home. Feel free to text, email or call.

Best regards,

Most available properties for lease will be listed on the MLS, a resource that is mainly limited to Realtors. In addition, an experienced eye can spot things that a rentor may not see regarding neighborhood, potential problems with the property and code violations.

It doesn't cost you anything to use the services of a realtor, so why not.

Like the others have said, it does help a lot to have a realtor when renting a home and it doesn't cost you a thing. I have helped many families find rent homes in and around McKinney and $1,450 a month should get you a pretty good home. Most of the good ones are being leased within a couple of days to a week of being on the market. Let me know if you would like me to show some homes to you in the near future. Have a great day!!!

It is not a requirement for you to have a Realtor ...however, it would definatley make the process smoother and afford you some protection against scamming. It costs you nothing to use a Realtor (at least us anyway) so the question you should ask yourself is why wouldn't you choose to use a Realtor? I have a whole team who can help you with this and we are ready to answer any other questions you have. You can reach us at or by phone at 469-450-2566
