6 Reasons To Use a Realtor When Looking For a Rental

Happy Couple Moving Into Their New Rental Home

If you or someone you know is looking for a rental these days I highly recommend you use a Realtor. Competition is fierce for just about everything and the really good places last no more than a few days.

You can’t rely on the sites available to the public as their information is so often out of date that they are quite misleading. I’ve had customers send me listings they found on Zillow and Craigslist, especially, and they are continually disappointed to find what they saw is already rented, sometimes months in the past.

Here are 6 reasons to use a Realtor when looking for a rental.

  • Realtors will tailor the search for your place to your exact needs, so you don’t have to make who knows how many calls to find out if some detail is available.
  • There’s no need to spend time on third-party sites that aren’t up to date.  The only real-time provider is the multiple listing service we Realtors use.
  • Realtors will coordinate showing the places you want to see at your convenience, so you see several rentals at one time.
  • Avoid the scams that proliferate these days by having someone working for you who knows the signs of deceit and can validate ownership in a property.
  • Realtors are familiar with rental values and have access to the histories of each property. We can negotiate on your behalf with experience and confidence.
  • There is no cost to you to engage the services of a realtor. We are paid a prearranged amount by the owner of the property.

With the above points in mind I can’t imagine why anyone would DIY it when looking for a rental. Leave the footwork to your Realtor.

Renting in Coconut Grove With Pets

Pets Welcome Doormat

I’m one of those who considers my pets to be family members so I understand the importance they are to renters. Finding a place to lease with your pets can be frustrating as there are condo rules that prohibit tenants having pets, and homeowners who don’t want to rent to people with pets.

They are heartless souls, if you want my opinion. But there are plenty of places for rent that do allow pets! Breaking it down below are all the homes and condos, furnished and unfurnished available for rent in Coconut Grove now.

Furnished Homes, Townhouses, and Condos

Unfurnished Homes and Townhouses

Unfurnished Condos

There are rules for the size or number of pets in most condominiums and homeowners usually require a refundable pet deposit, but you can find a rental for yourself and the whole family in Coconut Grove!

If you need help finding a rental, or you need a Realtor to help you find a new tenant give me a call at 305 794.6570 or leave me a note.

Coral Gables Rental Home Ready For A Celebrity

Pool and Patio at 520 Madeira Avenue in coral Gables, Fl

I’ve listed a stunning home at 520 Madeira Avenue in the north part of Coral Gables that would be perfect for diplomats, executives, or celebrities who want to live within walking distance to downtown Coral Gables.  This area is the epicenter of fine dining, has great boutiques on Miracle Mile, and is just minutes from Merrick Park’s super-chic open-air shopping. (Think Jimmy Choo, Tiffany’s, Neiman-Marcus, and so forth.) It’s also 10 minutes from Miami International Airport to the north and University of Miami to the south. I am talking about location, location, location!

This 2-story home was built in 1990, and it fits into the neighborhood of older Mediterranean-style homes constructed during the early days of the Gables. The owners have recently upgraded the home with impact glass windows and doors, a serene pool and patio, and luscious landscaping. It’s an extraordinarily comfortable place to live in one of Miami’s premiere neighborhoods.
