Asked by Ann, Saint Johns, MI Wed May 28, 2008

homes. Any suggestions or websites that may be helpful? With the housing market what it is, would it be possible to ask someone to rent out a home that may have been sitting on the market for a while?

Jay, this is so wierd because we saw your home on craigslist (for sale) and I thought I'd take a chance and call your realtor. Well, yesterday I did and it didn't seem like it would work out. She stated that you would be interested in leasing with 5-10k down and for a few years before selling it. We were looking to spend $1200-$1500/mo. If I misunderstood or you change your mind, please feel free to email us. thenewman6@charter.net. I drove by your home yesterday and it looks great! Surprised it hasn't sold!

Best of luck!

Hi Ann:

What kind of home are you looking to rent? I actually met a seller on this site who was considering leasing out her home in the Lansing area. Drop me an email and let me know what you're looking for and I'll see if it's a match.

Ann, I don't personally work with renting homes, however we have 2 ladies that handle that and do have some inventory for rent at the time. Contact Jessie at jessieperry@briarwoodrealty.com She should be able to help you.
My site is below in the event you decide to buy in the future. Thanks, Mike

Ann, Are you searching on http://Realtor.com ? On that site, there is also a Rental tab on the home search page. There will also be local agents that have Internet Data Exchange (IDX) on their websites that might help.
