How To Find A Rental In A City Where you Don't Live?
Let me first say that I don't recommend renting a place sight unseen. There are certain circumstances where you are moving internationally or you just don't have the opportunity to visit the city before you get there. I don't recommend visiting a property without seeing it and many landlords and property managers will not rent you a Salt Lake City rental without you seeing it. Pictures are great but pictures can be photoshopped they can look a lot prettier than they are. Lot of people show up and are not happy with what they get.
We used to do property management and we rented a house over the phone who's friend looked at the house and the friend said sure that is good to go, and the actual people that came to rent the property did not like it. They didn't like the Salt Lake neighborhood and did not like the property. We ended up letting them out the lease just because we didn't want to deal with the battle. The point is if you don't see the property it is very hard for you to make that kind of decision of where you are going to live it is one of the most important ones we will make.
But if you have to do it sight unseen, first off find someone you know and trust if you can get them to view the property have them do that. Have them take notes and pictures and have them let you know what it is like. Don't assume what you are looking at in an ad is what you are looking at, you can't smell the house in pictures you can't see what the neighboring houses look like. I advice against it, but sometimes you have to. In that case I recommend going to some of the sites like Craigslist, rentals.com or rentvine.com or freerentalsite and if there is not enough pictures ask for more. If there is not a good description call them up and ask for more detail ask them what is nearby ask them what is important to you. David Borden - FreeRentalSite.com.
