Finding the Best Rentals for Your Money

Each week we will be featuring a new tip to help you take full advantage of the tools Homekeys has to offer. This week's tip is "Finding the Best Rentals for Your Money." If you have any suggestions about tips you'd like to see, feel free to Contact Us.

Searching for Rental properties is very similar to searching properties for sale. Under the Search Listings tab you need to make sure to select Search Type: Search MLS Rentals. Once you've done that, you can proceed to conduct a search like you normally would. Enter a city, neighborhood, zip, address, mls number or search using the map.

One thing that's different is the way ValueSearch works. Instead of ranking the listings above or below estimated value, ValueSearch compares the estimated value to the annual rent to determine the Best Rental Deals. The lower the percentage, the better the deal!

Again, by default, the results are sorted by the best deals. If you want to change the sort then use the drop down boxes above the listings result. The best deals will always be used as the second search criteria, so if you choose to sort by community, you will get the best deals in that particular community first.
