Thank you for your question about Rentals in Kenosha. For the most part, when a Landlord has put a dollar figure amount for Renting his house or rental unit ... he/she has usually done their due dilience "research" for the going rents in the area and it is unlikely that the rental amount will be reduced just because the unit has not been rented right away.
The Landlord also has to take into consideration what their monthly costs are for mortgage, insurance, taxes, and deferred maintenance and repairs ,,, thus they must be careful to price their rental so that they are able to make their monthly payments. If they were to lower the rent it could put them upside-down. Another consideration for the Landlord is to make sure the right tenant is chosen for the property
Of course, every situation is different, so it cannot hurt to ask the Homeowner/Landlord if they are firm on their rental amount or if there is room. Sonetimes there can be some negotiations agreed to for caretaker-type services of the tenant ... yard maintenance, show removal, painting, minor repairs, etc.
Hope this helps.
