Ester I have just listed 2 leases and we are getting lots of calls already. A 3/2 in a good neighborhood should not take long. Activity has started picking up so be prepared, it could move quickly once it goes on the market.

Best of Luck and I can be reached at the number below if you want to speak further,

Hi Ms. Acosta,

This is the right time to lease. Adviseable to lease until the market improves, because with so many foreclosures on the market, the appraised value is coming back low. Families still desire to live in a house rather than an apartment, especially if they have children. I am showing rentals this weekend to a family.

The anticipated timeframe for a rental on the market would be about a couple of months if it is priced right, and if it is ready to move in. My leasees are asking cost comparative to what the others in the area are renting for. Does it have all appliances? Is it close to businesses and schools? I have had one to ask me if they take Section 8. The more amenities you have over the other properties the quicker it is to lease.

Some families are finding it difficulty to purchase a home at this time, because the credit scores have to be so high, right now it is 640 for FHA. Although, the interest rates are low. So leasing until the market gets back up is adviseable to anyone that can.

I would be happy to lease it for you and I can be contacted at 832-368-3763.

Hi, Esther.

Are you considering leasing out an existing home or looking to purchase as an investment? These are two different scenarios with different requirements, so I would be interested in hearing more details.

If you are considering leasing out a home, you have made a wise decision. Rentals are in high demand because so many people are either not qualified to get a loan or have other concerns. It is safe to say that if the lease is in a desirable area (such as Cypress) and priced right...it will go fast and may even have multiple offers. Some are even putting in higher offers to ensure a top spot. A lot of investors are buying at record savings/rates and renting out until the market stablizes. Very smart!

Your Realtor will be able to tell you what similar homes have sold at and how long they were on the market before accepting an offer. If you are looking to purchase as an investment, this will help to determine your monthly gains and if it is desirable. If you have an exsisting home, it will help ensure you price it right from the start.

Please contact me for any other related questions. I have called Cypress home for a few years now and have become familiar with the local communities.

All the best to you!

With the current condition in the lending industry (strict guidelines for borrowers), the leasing market stays busy. I live and work primarily in Cypress and I can tell you that this is a very desirable area. We are zoned to one of the best school districts, excellent schools, great restaurants, shopping malls, plenty of events / functions, Lone Star College...plenty of amenities out here.
With this in mind, as long as the house is in move-in ready condition, well kept, clean and well priced well then you should have plenty of candidates calling.

If you need assistance with leasing your house out, please don't hesitate to give me a call.

Well Ive been showing homes Cypress to people who want to lease. The key is having it ready for move in. All imperfections should be corrected to get you the most amount of rent. There are many nice homes to choose from. There are many people looking to lease 3bdr homes and Ill be showing some today. Is your home on the market for lease currently?

While there can be no guarantees as to time to rent your home, the Cypress rental market is HOT! Especially now, just before school starts. Families that are relocating need to find a place today. Homes that are in good condition and priced right will be rented almost immediately. Marketing your property is critical. Choose a qualified agent that can help you get your property ready, advertise it to prospective tennants and other REALTORS, place it in MLS with great photos and an inspirational message will get you the best results. Good luck!

As a side note I noticed that it says home buyer in your profile, I can also help you with that and it wouldnt cost you anything to use me for that service.
If you hired me to lease your home I would split one months rent with the other agent(if that was necessary) a lot of times the agent that lists a lease property finds the tenant themselves with out another agent. In that case I would cut the commision by 1/4 or 1/2

The lease market is crazy in Houston right now.....which Cypress is more or less a part of.
As long as the rent is right and the property is attractive it could take as little as a week two a month or so...
Three bedrooms homes are the bread and butter of the market, so as long as the rent makes sense and the home shows well and has clear signage from owner in front yard or is listed with a Realtor so their sign is in front and rental listing is in MLS...it might not take much time at all.
If you are interested I would like to discuss this with you and help you lease your home, as I happen to probably live 10-15 min from you
