Are you still looking for someone to lease your house? I know you posted in October but thought I would take a chance. We are looking for a furnished rental till June 15. We rent in Steiner and the house we rent is up for sale.

I have a lease client who is moving from Monterrey the first of the year, who MIGHT consider a short term lease. They have a home to sell there and want to buy in the Lake Travis area when it sells. Please send me details of you home (photos if you have them), amount you want for lease payment and security deposit, and how to contact you.

A few weeks before the fire I helped a client lease her house short term (6-8 months) in one day for $2500/mo.
This home was smaller and on Centinial Olympic Park. I can only imagine that it would be an easy rental right now. We negotiated first and last months rent, security deposit $2500 (of course), and a non refundable $850 pet deposit.
I'd be happy to work for you. Contact me directly if you'd like.

Hi Ailidh,
A short term rental is not common but certainly worth a try. I can email you a link to what other homeowners in Steiner are offering/asking for lease if you would like to get an idea of what is out there. I live in the area and would be happy to help, if you are interested.

Hello, Ailidh,

Short term rentals are hard to find and furnished ones even more so. At the same time, "short-term" usually means 3-6 months, but 8 months would still be in that category. Generally people who pay that high a rent (at least $3000, more if furnished) are solvent and hopefully responsible, but you would do a background check, of course, before renting to anyone. If interested, I'd like to help you find the right tenant, I am experienced with leases. Contact me to discuss.

It is possible, but your best bet might be finding a home owner who lost there place in one of the fires in your area waiting to have a new house built.
