Looking for long term WA rental within 90 miles of Portland airport

Asked by Wiley, Vancouver, WA Fri May 10, 2013

Looking for a long term (multi-year) rental/lease beginning end of July. 2600 sq ft minimum, 4beds plus an office space. Low maintenance renter well able to maintain home. Good credit and referrals. Prefer rural with acreage but will consider anything not on top of the neighbors. Privacy a big plus. Small pets. We're checking listing services but suspect there might be one or two of you that haven't listed but are considering renting. In the area already but current landlord moving back in.

Thank you for your inquiry. Yes, realtors are often privy to rental properties, prior to the homeowners listing with agencies.

Most realtors do not do property management (except for their own properties).

I was wondering.. what is "LONG TERM"? if it were the right property, would you consider a lease/option to purchase? or would you consider a purchase if the owner was carrying the contract?
or do you expect to leave the area after a period of time?

thanks.. love to hear from you

Any particular reason why you aren't looking into purchasing a home now? Especially since you are considering such a long term rental, why pay for someone else's mortgage? There are quite a few loans that don't require downpayments. My suggestion would be to also look into a free home buyer education class.....try http://www.freehomebuyerclasses.com for more information. These classes are free and non-promotional.
Hope this helps...Good luck!

Gloria, long term means years. We do not expect to leave the area, just working on time and money for a purchase. Lease/Option to purchase? You bet. We are definitely settled here. I'm hoping initial rental agreement would be 2-3 years in length if a basic rental. Would certainly consider more creative scenarios.
