Realtors usually only have access to rentals that are listed in the MLS. Sounds like you need to find an apartment locater, they are typically paid by the apartment complex. Go to the gorcery stores and look for the apartment rental booklets that may give you some help. Good luck. ... more

The average rent will vary depending on the location and size of the home. Please feel free to visit and click on the link for Property Management. There you will find a list of our current rental properties.

However, have you considered purchasing your home? Interest rates are low and prices are good. This is a perfect time to experience the American Dream.

If I may be of assistance to you, please feel free to contact me.

Hi Mary,

It really depends on the community. In you have one in mind ask your Realtor to call the association and ask about their policies.

First of all, the fact that you are concerned about being fair to your agent is HUGE!
We need more clients like you!

Unless you have a rep agreement in place for your lease search , you are most likely not obligated to pay anything.

If I was the agent , it would be nice to get a hand written thank you card, a gas card to refill my tank ....and maybe even a referral or two down the road!

You would not believe the lack of gratitude agents receive ....your a good person and a dying breed.

All my best.

Yes, Renters don't even talk with out of state owners and out of country owners are surely a scam. Think - if it stinks its trouble so just avoid them.

Hello there, Working with a Realtor should be the esiest way to get a property for rent. I would still suggest to cosiderate on buying if you could as it is less expensive to buy than renting now because of the rates and prices low.

Hello Sbentley0808, stick to your guns. It's your home and your rules. I'm sure the current tenant will not have any issues signing a 1 year lease again. If they do, you should have any issues finding a new tenant that will sign a 1 year lease.

All the best!

If you have a legitimate lease, the current owner is likely responsible for relocating you into a comparable property.

Gregory Cook answered:
If you're thinking of renting a home in Temecula, as a first step you should check to make sure the person who is leasing the home is actually the owner or his representative, especially if the home is vacant.
You should also check to see if a Notice of Default or Notice of Trustee's Sale has been filed, which indicates foreclosure may be imminent.

Just be careful of the contract you are using. There are great advantages in using a Realtor to help you find a rental property. Not only do we have an extensive list of rental properties, but you can rely on the content of the lease agreements used by Realtors. Many times, the contracts used by individual owners who are renting their own properties are incomplete or even downright illegal. Standard contracts from the California Association of Realtors give you the best protection under the law as a tenant. And the best part is that the landlord normally pays for this service.....the tenant receives help and advice at no cost.

Another concern today is the seller's mortgage on the rental property. Your real estate agent should be looking at the title information of the rental property to make sure that there is not a Notice of Default filed against the property. We have seen many cases today where a tenant moves into a property only to find out that it will soon be foreclosed. Nothing worse than coming home from work and finding a Notice of Trustee's Sale on your front door.

Again, your best protection is to use an agent. Your agent will be able to guide you thru the process and help to protect you.

Hope this helps a bit! Bob

Roland Vinyard answered:
Oh my... For now, I would secure the door against future break-ins (which I infer you have done) and use a secondary door. Give them a fair amount of time to rectify the situation... but not too much. Keep up the pressure to get it repaired. Tell them that you are concerned that in case of fire you have only one way to escape, the idea being that they may have a huge liability should this occur.

If nothing has been done after a few days, I would seek legal advice to see if you could do the repair yourself and seek reimbursement from them. There are folks who would reduce the next monthly payment by that amount and just give them a copy of the receipt. That may not be the best way to go about this, but would get their attention. You may not get your expenditure back -as they may have certain standards to which they want all repairs made.

Just be honest with the Landlord or property manager. They know that lots of people are having problems right now and take that into consideration. Sometimes a larger security deposit will make them feel more confortable. ... more
