Rentals in Orlando>Question Details

Mary Hogan, Home Buyer in Columbia, NJ

We will be moving from NJ to Florida in December (date to be determined after closing on the short sale if our existing house).

Asked by Mary Hogan, Columbia, NJ Wed Oct 9, 2013

We are 2 adults, 3 children, 1 dog and 2 cats. We would like a pool home, 4 bedroom, 2 bath, large property in a safe area with good schools. Maximum of $1300 per month. I will (hopefully) be getting a job at Walt Disney World so it needs to be in close commuting distance. Any suggestions on areas to concentrate on looking at? We will also need a realtor to show us properties that would be available for immediate tenancy. Thank you.

Hello,

By way of introduction my name is Mike Luzzo of Easy Street Realty. The web server has provided me your information and I am here to help.

Below is a letter from the managing broker of Verandah, Pamela McNab-Syvertson. This information will point you in the right direction for your needs and will expedite your process. Hope this helps! Good Luck!

Thank you for your email. First let me say, that there is no centralized and/or organized way to go about looking for a rental property in Orlando. When someone wants to purchase, there is, and all Realtors work together to show properties of their own and of other Realtors to try and help a buyer find a property. Alas; in rentals, there is not.
What I can give you are a few tips; One please check out my company's website at http://www.verandahproperties.com and if there are any properties on our list that meet your criteria, we can set you up with our company's Leasing Agent to show you the properties that work for you. If you don't see anything, please check http://www.rentals.com and/or http://www.freerentalsite.com; the majority of Property Management companies pay to have their inventory listed on one or both of these sites so you can really get a lot of good information in one place. Unfortunately, you'll have to do your due diligence and contact the management companies directly for those properties you're interested in. Alternatively, a property management company that I know of has come up with a system to try and bridge the gap, however they do charge a fee to show properties to potential renters.....this may be valuable to you, only you can decide. You can reach them at http://www.leasingorlando.com

I wish I could be of more help, but do hope this information was helpful to you. Thank you!

Try a place like Indian Ridge or Lindfields. These are some of the original vacation home areas, that are now mostly full time residents. They are just south and southwest of Disney.

I will tell you that the cats will be the problem. I'm a landlord, too and I will never again rent to tenants with cats. Dogs, yes. Cats, no. You will find a lot of landlords fell that way. Good luck.
