My fiancee owns a 3 BR/2 BA villa (attached on one side to the one next to it) with a 1 car garage that is coming available for rent at $1,650, but is not listed. It's in Delray Beach along Military, north of Atlantic. The owner is willing to consider renting and at some point selling. Email me at if you are interested in learning more.

Unless the home is overpriced, in poor condition or in a terrible location the chances are somewhere between slim and none. The real estate market in Delray Beach like all of Palm Beach County is red hot with well priced listings selling immediately if not faster. Finding a home to buy is the biggest problem for buyers today as inventory continues to shrink and prices continue to rise. You will find the same in the rental market with limited inventory and well priced listings renting very, very quickly.

The off season which is from May til October is the time to find that. Why is a very important question in order to best help you. Are you looking to do a lease to own? Most owners take the home off the market while it is rented but that is 100% individual call.

Very slim, it takes a certain type of person to be a landlord, and not many sellers are in the mood to do so as the liability goes through the roof. It has become common place for people to ask and agents to call me on my listings with the same request but I have yet to have a seller entertain the idea.

Not an easy task, but doable if you have an agent who wants to work for you. It's a challenge. Most agents who have the listing for sale would prefer to sell the property for their customer and make a 3% commission than to do an annual lease (5% of the annual lease amount). Also, most sellers want to sell, not rent, if their house is up for sale and not for rent (however some homes are up for both)
