Well Kristen, depending on your time frame you might be in luck. It just so happens that I am in the military and will be rotating to Colorado in August / September. I'm still on the fence about selling or renting. Primarily because nobody takes care of your home like you! We have a 2004, 2375sf four bedroom, 3 bath (two large rooms upstairs + full bath with master downstairs and another 12x10 downstairs as well that we use as a computer / office room) with just about every upgrade. And we are proverbial clean freaks.
Amenities: custom tiles in the garage, granite counters with open floor plan, 2010 model stainless everything, custom tiled backsplash, Brazilian hardwood floors downstairs, newly renovated master (in March 2013) 4 5/8 in crown molding, New paint inside and out, 400sf screened in lanai, manicured lawn with curbing, and American Home Shield for peace of mind. If we do decide rent our home, the rent will be $1475 and a minimum of a year lease will be required. The neighborhood has only 37 homes with only one way in with probably 10 children in the neighborhood the age of your girls. I have a 7 year old girl and a 10 year old boy. If you think that you would be interested, contact me at I'm currently in Kuwait with a return date of 1 August. Thanks and good luck!

Hi Leeann.

That is and should always be a major concern for anyone who is relocating to an unfamiliar area. But every buyer/renter has a different interpretation of Safe or Unsafe depending upon their personal opinion. The Brandon Realtor who you are working with should be able to send you the links for Crime stats specific to the Russellwood area so you can review them and see your comfort level for the area. Brandon is a very large area and all areas are different. My only advice to you is, if you haven't already done so, make sure you choose an agent who specializes in the Brandon area and can be an asset/resource for you.

Best of luck to you.

Warm Regards
Charlene Weston

Good point Steve...

I think commission is how most all R/E works. Listing Agent as well as the Buyers Agent are paid normally by the Seller. I just don't want the Sellers agent or brokerage representing me. To much of a conflict there for me. ... more
