Realtors don't accept or reject any type of offer... section 8 or otherwise. Only the actual owner can accept or reject. We Realtors are just their "agents" acting on their behalf under their direction. ... more

Hi Marian,
There are lots of sellers that would be willing to lease. Most of them have placed their homes in the care of a property manager or real estate office. Surfing the TV is probably not going to be the most efficient use of your time. There is a property mgmt sub-section in the real estate section of the yellow pages. Most of the companies have various price ranges and will require an application along with $75-$100 fee. If you have additional questions please call my cell or email me.
The website link below will also give you opportunity to see what is available through our FL Gulf Coast MLS rental service. Happy to help.

Hi Rd,

There isn't much commission paid on a lower priced rental property so you may have difficulty finding an agent to assist you. If you want an agent's help you may have to pay them a fee on top of any small commission they may be paid by the landlord.

Did you look on

Just be careful if you decide to rent from an owner who is not represented by a Real Estate management company because they are some owners who are in foreclosure and you may have to allow "showings" for a Short Sale and then have to move soon. It's not unreasonable to ask an owner for a copy of their most recent mortgage statement to verify they are current on their mortgage. Also you want to verify you are paying to the "owner shown on public records or a Real Estate company.

Good luck on your hunt... you are very disadvantaged with so many pets. Some planned communities will not allow more than 2 cats and 2 dogs. Most landlords prefer tenants without pets. Also the "pet fees" can be $250 per pet so that can add up in a hurry!
