You Can Use A Realtor To Find a Rental?

I’ve had a huge increase lately of people reaching out to me to find a rental home. I’m helping 4 separate renters in various stages of the process today alone!!

I’m kind of embarrassed to admit this, but up until a few years ago I didn’t even know you COULD work with a Realtor as a renter.     

So why would you want to have a Realtor when you’re renting?

  • They do a lot of the work for you. You give them your criteria, and they can find the properties that suit your needs and book showings for you 
  • They know right vs. wrong. A good Realtor knows the rules, what a landlord can and can’t ask, etc
  • They can advocate for you-I know I’ve written a letter about my clients that made the difference in landing their ideal rental 
  • You don’t have to pay! Typically the tenants Realtor is paid by the landlord. It doesn’t cost you anything extra
  • Just like purchasing a home, renting involves moving-it’s still a big life event!! Why not have someone on your team to alleviate some of the stress?
Have you ever worked with a Realtor as a renter?
