For Rent in San Jose>Question Details

Feli, Other/Just Looking in Providence, RI

I'm relocating to San Jose from Rhode Island with my husband and we are looking to rent a 1 or 2 bed

Asked by Feli, Providence, RI Wed Jun 17, 2009

apartment near San Jose State University or near a light rail station. I'm planning to be in San Jose for the week of July 19th to go apartment hunting and wanted to know if I could hire a broker to line up possible rentals while I'm in San Jose. Or are brokers only used for when looking for a home to purchase?

I also suggest this self paced tool. eMail the properties you like for appointment

If you are not sure about future, try month to month rent with 30 day written notice.
SJSU is downtown and the light way goes around a long way from Santa Teresa to Great America, Santa Clara.

Hi Feli, you can use the following MLS site to search for an rental/apartment in San Jose:

For "Class" use "10", which is Residential Rental.

If you would like help with the showing process for the 19th, versus coordinating your visits by yourself with landlords/owners, please contact me offline and I would be happy to set-up an automated search for you that emails results.

BTW, I just did a 3-mile radius search of San Jose State and only found 8 rentals listed (ranging from $1595 to $8500.

Hi Feli,

Below you have received some great tools to use in your search. I just wanted to add, "Welcome to California". I am an East Coast transplant. I was born and raised in S. Dartmouth, MA and my husband was born in Newport and raised in Mattapoisett. We both moved to the San Jose area about 9 years ago from the Andover area.

If I can assist with anything while you are settling in to your new home, please feel free to contact me.

Best of luck and enjoy the weather!
