Dahlia,

Here is a link to West Plano leases with pools.
http://goo.gl/f7nDy
This link will also allow you to customize your search in other ways.

Leases move pretty quick around here, so typically you want to look about 30-45 days out.
Here are some other tips on leasing.
ere are the best tips to secure the best lease home:

1. Never-Never-Never-EVER Rent to Own or Lease to Own. I’ve never seen one circumstance where this was a good situation for the tenant or potential buyer. In fact it is just the opposite. We very often get questions from people who have tried this venture only to see them loose huge deposits and get into horrible situations. If you want to rent then RENT, if you want to buy, then BUY, but don’t ever mix the two up.

2. Understand most landlords are ready to rent NOW. The best time to look is about 30 days before you want to move. If you need to give 60 days notice at your current place, you will likely need to give notice first, and then find a new home. Rare is it that I see landlords willing to wait 60 or more days for you to move.

3. Fill out the application before you even look at homes. It takes time to fill it out. You need to fill it out completely with dates, phone numbers, emails, etc of current and previous work histories and residences. If you want to get approved, don’t make the landlord do the work for you. Most won’t. If you can provide even more documentation than what they ask, the better. Give them copies of your DL and your pay stubs to prove up your income and identity. Don’t make them ask. Fill out one application for each adult, even if you are married. Download the lease application HERE.

4. Have your application fees…normally about $30-35/adult, your deposit…normally 1 month’s rent, and your first month’s rent ready when you start to look. The best places rent very very quickly, so when you find the place you want, you need to act quickly. Having your application filled out, your app fees, deposit, and first month’s rent ready when you find the right home is critical.

5. Pets….just let us know if you have pets. We now find that only about ½ the landlords will allow pets, so we need to know this up front so we can find homes that will allow pets. There is a separate application you will need to fill out for your pets and you can download the Pet Application HERE. Take pictures of your pets and include them with your application.

6. Appliances...We find that about 50% of the homes will include a refrigerator and about 25% of the homes for lease will also include a washer and dryer. If your home does not come with appliances, just let me know and we may be able to provide you with a discount coupon to buy your own.

7. Utilities.... Follow this link for utility connection information. In most cases you will be responsible for all utilities including electric, gas, water, cable, and security if you want or need these. http://goo.gl/MZsCL

Hi Dahlia,
You can have a search set up for you in the Multiple Listing Service. In order to do that you need to be specific as to the maximum rent you want to pay, what size home you need (sq foortage and/or # of bedrooms), perhaps the age. If you would like me to to set that up for just send me an email and I would
be happy to do so.

Dahlia,
All of the information that you have received so far is great. Another few items to consider are:
1. Most lease homes move fairly quickly. Average days on the market is 30-60 days. Therefore, once you find a home that you like, you should submit your application right away.
2. You should plan to pay an application fee ($30-$50 usually) when you complete your application to lease a home that you choose. This fee is non-refundable.
3. If you are approved for the lease home, you will need to pay a deposit (usually equal to 1-month rent) right away to hold the home for you. The rent for the first month will be due prior to move-in.
4. You should hire a Realtor to represent you. There is normally no cost to you for these services, and your agent will help you find homes that meet your needs, tour the homes with you, and help you complete the application and lease.

Good luck! Welcome to Plano - I think you will really enjoy it here.

Leasing in W Plano is based on availability. Currently in 75025 & 75024 zip code, there are only 7 homes with Pool. Lynn is right, a tenant occupied home will need 30 days move out notice. If home is vacant, once putting a lease application, you can move in within a week after the listing agent runs the application.

We help people lease homes as well, let me know if you need help once you move here. My contact number is 214-563-9876
