I have seen it happen but it is not likely a landlord would lower there price unless it has been on the market a long time.

Leases is a really hot market now and I would suggest that you look at homes in your price range unless the home that you like is overpriced and has been on the market for a while. Then perhaps the landlord realizes that he needs to come down in price.

You should stick to looking at homes in your price range. The rental market is to hot and fast right now. It probably wouldn't be in your or your Realtors best interest. However pick 1 Realtor and work with them only on finding your place.

I agree with both responses. Today's market is very fast paced in DFW Metroplex. Most Landlords will want to stick with the list price for their rental home. If the home stays on the market too long, you will then start to see a reduction in rental price for that particular home. Some landlords rent will barely cover their basic expenses while others make a good profit from the rent. Please contact me for additional information on rental homes on the market.

It happens, but not often in this market. We do see properties going over the list price to get them tied up. So price might be $1700/month and the tenant says they'll pay $1800 to take it off the market.

3-4 years ago it might be common to take $50-$100 off if you would also give something, like move in earlier, pay a bigger deposit, or sign 2year lease.

Stick to your budget. Leasing is an all time high in DFW area, and homes are not on the market long. I specialize in residential leasing you have to consider property owner expenses.

1. Mortgage
2. Insurance
3. Taxes
4. Repairs
5. Make ready of property PRIOR to tenant move in
6. Maintaining the home all the expenses after one tenant moves out waiting for next family to move in .

NOTE: Many owners are just clearing their #1, #2, #3, no profit just they prefer NOT have short sale or foreclosure on their credit report.
