Hello Kathy.....Finding a lease option in ridgefield is not impossible. Finding the property you want to lease is more challenging.
We start with what you are hoping to find.....and then inquire on your behalf and present an offer once we have reason to believe it might be "entertained". There are lease/options, or purchases with early occupancy leases. There is also an option called "home tenders'...Vacant homes that are seeking renters, but those require a higher level of "application", and the home may stay on the market while you are leasing.
A realtor investigates the possibilities based on YOUR needs, provides research, and directs you to appropriate properties or resources, depending on your goals.
let me know if I can be of further assistance.
