Dear Christopher,

I help a LOT of tenants get into rentals. And your request is something I see every day. I need to get you up to speed.

Just to be fair, I just ran a search for you for 3 bedrooms or more. And I am letting you know I am covering the entire 13 counties and surrounding area. Here goes.....

One in Ellsworth, WI for $1100.......one in Hutchinson, MN for $1000......one in Richmond, MN for $1025......one in St. Michael, MN for $1095.......and one in St. Paul for $1095. That is it.

Seriously, the going "normal" rate for a 2-3 BR home or townhome right now, or even half of a duplex, is about $1300 a month.

Then I checked on duplexes, which I did not have in there before, and I found 3 more options. There is an upper and a lower duplex in Mora, MN for $850 and $895 respectively. And another up/down duplex in Dayton's Bluff (St. Paul) for $1000. That one does not give me even a clue if it is the UP or the DOWN.

If I raise the price to $1200 I got a couple more, one being in Edina. If I go to $1300 there are a couple more.

I would be glad to help you with this. But you need to understand the market and be very realistic.

Please feel free to give me a call. Just click on my website below and shoot me an email or give me a call. I don' t bite....and just so you are aware, you don't pay me anything for my assistance.

Have a good evening,

I agree 3 bedroom for 900-1100 is going to be very hard if you want to be in nicer neighborhoods. Duplex might be the answer but 3 bedrooms is rare for those.

Your better off buying for that monthly payment right now in the metro to get 3 bedrooms than trying to find a rental. I am sure you have your reasons for not buying though.

If however you find the rental market tough sledding and want to explore buying options hit me up.
