I have found information by zip code, but is there any resource to find out by neighborhood or community

Lou ...

Do you have access to har.com as an agent? If so, you can set up all kinds of parameters for available and "sold" (i.e. leased) properties. Of course, landlords who advertise by themselves (Craigslist is full of them) wouldn't be included ... you'd have to do a bit of visual legwork there. So the answer would be yes ... and no. Based on what I've seen over the years, about 20% of landlords go it alone. If you do come across something else, please post it here ... I'd like to know about it.

Usually, a Title Company can do a "farm" which shows the Owner/Occupants in that area.
Talk to your favorite Title Company.

Unfortunately in Texas Title Company's are not so ready to do such work for the agents.

Good question. I'm not sure you can get a totally accurate number because homes that people rent out themselves would not really ever show up anywhere that I can think of. Any source will not not be able to give you a totally accurate number I would think.

You can set up a specific search in the MLS for past lease sales in a specific neighborhood or community pretty easily and that will give you an idea of what you are looking for I would think. I would think you could add say 15 to 20% to those numbers to account for people who listed their homes themselves and did not use an agent or the MLS.

Hope this helps.
