I am the property manager for 6191 Timber Lake Dr #A8. This property only shows as a 1 bathroom, when it is a 2 bathroom. How can I change this?

Rentals are very hard to find. Your best bet is to contact several rental property management companies and get your name put on their list. Rentals are a little different than normal residential sales where you would only work with one agent. You can also look for rentals by owner on web sites, newspaper, etc. ... more

I agree with everyones comments. I believe that if your set with moving to Sarasota, FL than there shouldnt be any problems but first thing is first doing your homework. Investigating little details in the area and far from the area, a lot of us tend to jump into it really quick but the more patient you are than the better the process will be. After all everyone wants excellent customer service and an outstanding experience. Down below I've listed links from various websites that can possibly help you.

This type of question always gets me, people with bad credit need to get their debt down,
STOP spending as in credit cards and don't take a vacation for a yr or two. There are
people in my own family that don't have two nickles to rub together and they will be damned
to "Not" go on a vacation. Instead, they go spend 3K every yr and get further in debt, although
hey maybe they have the right idea. My husband and I reused our sandwhich bags, did not
spend a dime and worked 3 jobs within 3 yrs we had 25K saved for a home this was back
in 1984; all I'm getting at is "you have to give up things, go without and get your damn act together
THEN you can begin to look expensive areas for vacation homes. Sarasota area is NOT for
those who have bad credit. Try Orange Beach up in Alabama, great place and cheap taxes
and great places to get a vacation place.

Antonio Vega-Pacheco answered:
I don't see how signing a week before closing would benefit the seller, unless they agreed to sell the home to an investor who wanted a tenant in place. So I would ask the seller to let you speak the future owner prior to signing anything. If the future owners sounds like the landlord you would like to have then take the lease docs to you attorney for review before signing. ... more

Xena Vallone answered:
Renting with a pet can be troublesome to begin with. Renting with a large dog is even more troublesome. However, your breed of dog flags insurance companies and cause rates to increase. This is pretty much why you are having problems finding rentals. You are going to need to find an owner that doesn't mind taking that risk with their insurance company.

A good place to look for rentals would be Craigs List. Be careful you are truly dealing with an owner and never send money to an owner in exchange for keys, no matter how wonderful their story sounds. Legitimate property owners also advertise on Craigs List, but so do the scam artists - if something sounds to good to be true, it most likely is.

A good property manager can also help find properties for your specific needs. There are a couple in Sarasota I would recommend, as they have the largest inventory of rental property. One is Stringer Management and the next is Casey Management.

Good luck. I have owned German Shepherds myself in the past and they were all well behaved. Unfortunately for you, insurance companies rate their troublesome breeds by the number of claims received overall for that breed. A Shepherd is just a higher risk than say a Golden Retriever.

I hope my answer helps you.
