This is a god time to start looking now as many homes are put on the market with possession 8/1. The home search and application process will take 2 - 3 weeks. Make sure your rental history and credit score is good (600 or more). What area are looking to rent in? Do you have a pet? Concerned about a certain school?... more
Let me simply say, if you don't have an agent to assist you, then get with an attorney. There are so many variables in these contracts that unless you are very familiar with them, you may miss something major. Our leases here in Hampton Roads are well written and protect both sides of the lease. If you use something the owner has drafted, have an attorney or a legal aide professional check it out. You should read it though in great detail before you sign it.... more
I personally own two myself. One has been full for over three years by the same person. He feels it is worth not having to pay each bill himself, he pays me and I pay all the bills. The other one has been rented all but maybe 30 days this year. I get between $1350 and $1450 a month.
If you would like to talk, feel free to give me a call.
