Story House would love to help you with your rental search!
Before we get started, we want to explain a few things about how the rental market works in Charlottesville, especially in conjunction with real estate agents. The rental market in Charlottesville is a tricky one!
- First, real estate agents only have access to between 1/3 - 1/2 of the available rental listings via our local MLS (Multiple List System). Many rentals are managed privately, and one of the very best sources for rental availability is actually Craigslist. We would highly recommend that you set up a search with the MLS, but that you also begin checking Craigslist regularly to find properties.
- Because of the limited access and involvement given to Realtors, we are often not given any more access to the homes than the general consumer. Many of these listings do not have lockboxes, and showings are scheduled directly with the property manager or owner themselves. In many cases, if you find a rental you are interested and let us know about it, we would just be connecting you to the property manager directly to coordinate your schedules to go see it.
- Since the rental market IS handled very privately, you will also want to reach out to the most prominent property management companies in town. Here is a list of some that will often have larger lists of available rentals;
- At Story House Real Estate, once you have found a rental property that you are interested in, we can offer a number of rental services, the most important of which being to help you read and negotiate a lease agreement.
- In the meantime, we encourage you to set yourself up on a rental search on our site, which will make you aware of ALL rentals that match your criteria that are available in the Charlottesville MLS- this will free up your time for communication with the individual property managers and to search and stay up-to-date on Craigslist.
We look forward to helping you get settled in Charlottesville, and hope that we can be of assistance!
