Rates vary depending on whether you are renting a house or townhome etc. The best way to check out rates would be to get a couple of classified newspapers and spend some time looking at the amount they are asking. You can get a feel for what is out there and start to see a pattern. If you see a home etc. going for way more than another similar property, you may want to call and see if there are added amenities. If there are not added amenities then you basically know that that property is not set at a good rental rate.
