It's very difficult to get a rental property for six months in the Sugar Land area. The term is usually one year. Average rental rates vary from $1,100 to $1,900 depending on the area you choose to live.
Because interest rates are so low now, this is a great time to buy. However, it's always good to get to know a city well before you decide where you are going to live. The internet can help with that of course. Call me at (281) 734-1102 and I will be happy to answer any questions for you.

That is exactly our background. We manage over 100 homes and have placed Astro's players and business professionals looking for 6 months and less over the past 15+ years. Sugar Land and Missouri City are excellent places with the price range as already mentioned large. There are also many many areas and communities. Depending on where you work and what type of lifestyle you are seeking you can narrow the area down as with all towns there are many many choices.

You will need to pay slightly higher for 6 months than a 12 month lease but the above amount mentioned is normal. If you are seeking a furnished home that will be a significant challenge. It is possible but difficult.

The average price ranges from $60-$70/ sq. ft. again highly depending on location.

If you want to know the area better go to our website. I also have a map showing the communities and the rental price ranges in those communities. I would be glad to provide it to you.

For some reason this response went to my facebook and does not show my preofessional profile.
This is my professional response :)

6 month leases require you to call the landlord/listing agent and ask, as 6 month leases require more rehab once the tenants leave and would therefore cost you about 10 to 20% more per month.

Monthly rentals in Sugar Land can be $1,100 or more, depending on your requirements - size of home, subdivision, amenities etc.

There are some garden apartments/townhomes that my clients are staying in while they are looking to purchase. They normally do 6 and 7 month leases.

If you have to sell your house first, renting is definitely a good option. get to know the communities, access to freeways, drive in to work etc.

I'd love to help you further. Call or email me.

Regards.
