How to Rent by Owner

If you have plans to rent homes directly from owners to bypass the fees that professional agents can charge you, there are a few steps that you can use to find a reasonable yet pleasant rent by owner house that you can get. The first thing that you need to decide on is the location of your transfer. If you already have a location, then it will be easier to look for rental homes by owner through ads and through the internet.

The best way to find a rental property by owner is through listing services. These services are webpages that will provide you with necessary information on how to contact the owners directly. Once you get to the page, you can simply choose your location from their search box and type in your inclusive dates of rental. The dates are also very important because some owners prefer long term rentals and some offer both short term and long term opportunities.

Scan through pictures and try to list down the contact numbers of those homes that you are interested in. Contact the owners individually but do not say any finality yet. Since you are dealing with the owners, you can always try to negotiate the price.
