Renters....how did you find your home?

We are looking to move closer to my husband's work. How did you find your home? Any tips for finding a home (to rent)?

  • We found ours through our realtor who sold our house. We were looking for something rather temporary which made it really hard for us.

  • We were actually just driving around, and saw the sign for our house on a telephone pole. Came and looked in the windows, called our landlady, and we've been here almost 9 years.

  • When I rented, I found it by a big "For Rent" sign in the front yard of the house.

  • I never rented, I only bought. Started with a condo, sold that andmoved to a townhouse, and then after marrying my husband, we sold his townhouse, lived in mine for 2 years while looking. We ended up building our current single home.

  • Craigslist.
    The last place we had before this we found in the classifieds of the local paper.

  • My husband is military, so we have rented a lot. There are a few different websites online, rent.com, realtor.com & rentals.com. There are also websites that are specific to the area you are looking to rent in. I would do an internet search on either Google or Bing and just type in 'rentals in ____' and fill in whichever city you are looking to rent. From there you can find the websites that would be specific to your area. Good luck!
