Susan: As an agent in Castle Rock and one that knows the market very well here, Frank is correct in many ways. Finding a rental can be a chore and most agents will have access to homes, townhomes and condos for purchase with a few rentals. Rentals are very difficult to find and caution is suggested through some sites. If you are able to purchase now, you may be better off. There are some great programs out there right now for not only first time home buyers, but programs to assist those that have had to file bankruptcy etc. The first step is to get pre-qualified with a lender and if you do not have one, I have a few names that I am happy to share with you to help you determine the best avenue and allows you to make the best educated decision. Please contact me if you wish to know this information, if you are still looking for only rental options, give me a call and I will connect you with a property manager that has been in Douglas county for years. If you wish to know more about the options available in Castle Rock, feel free to check out my website at http://roxanne.rmprorealestate.com or www.colorado-lifestyle.com
In addition, I am available to talk with you in person to assist you in developing searches through these sites that fit your needs.
