this? I want to lease a home or townhome in Grand Rapids - Forest Hills Northern dist. (specifically Meadow Brool Elem.) for around $900. But I cannot find anything! Do Real estate agents help with this kind of thing? I have excellent credit and could buy, but I don't know how long I will stay in that vicinity.

Forest Hills School District is the most desireable area in the Grand Rapids area. It would be hard to find a home in the area for $900 a month

Michelle is right. The Forest Hills School District is very desirable and the rents in the area are generally higher than what you are looking to spend. That may be why you have had trouble finding a place to rent. Some Realtors do work a lot with renters. I prefer to work with buyers and sellers because that is what I do best, but I could try to help you find a renters agent if you would like help with your search. Let me know if you would like me to refer you to someone.

Hi Anne,

Yes Real Estate Agents can help, but the price range you are looking for in this area, is very low. Rental demands are up and supply is low - therefore driving the values up! The average rental is anywhere from 1500 - 2,500 a month.
If you do not know how long you will be here, then not buying is a good decision, however I am afraid will not find much.
Craig's list is good, and I have started a FB group for people to post rentals, or rental needs called "For Rent or looking to rent/Land Contracts ........Kent County Michigan" you can ask to join and post your need there. http://www.grar.com has a leasing section as well.

Good luck in your search!
