wellington fl homes for rent: Another Happy Wellington Rental Client! - 09/01/12 10:32 AM
Another Happy Wellington Rental Client!
I found Michelle through endless online searches and was impressed by her website, information and organization. I needed to rent a home in a 55+ community for my parents who had moved from Connecticut.
Their first agent turned out to be a nightmare and the scramble for some with other agents only showed they weren't familiar or knowledgeable with what we wanted.
Contacted Michelle for insights into certain communities and she responded quickly and with details. She also was quick to alert me about new properties or rate changes for what we were interested in. There were no wild chases … (8 comments)

wellington fl homes for rent: Should you Justify your Low Rental Offer? - 01/12/12 01:12 AM
Should you Justify your Low Rental Offer? The rental market in Wellington is HOT, HOT, HOT.  The median list to rental price is currently 100%, meaning landlords asking $2,000 a month are getting $2,000 a month.*  However even with those statistics there are still a few tenants who will try to negotiate the rental price with a Wellington landlord and if the tenant has a lot to offer they may be successful, but is it wise to justify the low rental offer? In my opinion the only way to "justify" a lower rental offer is by pointing out the properties flaws; … (10 comments)

wellington fl homes for rent: Should a Landlord rely on a Tenant to Pay their Bills? - 12/31/11 01:04 AM
Should a Landlord rely on a Tenant to Pay their Bills?
As a Wellington Rental Agent I never recommend a landlord rely on the tenant to pay their bills especially if the bill is in the landlords name;  mortgage, HOA dues, property taxes or even items that need regular maintenance like the pool or lawn.  

Why?  Because if the tenant doesn't pay the landlords mortgage, HOA dues or property taxes THE LANDLORD will be the one held liable.  If the tenant decides to forgo maintaining the pool or lawn because they want to save money THE LANDLORD is the … (10 comments)

wellington fl homes for rent: Don't be Offended if your Search Criteria is Unrealistic! - 09/23/11 02:50 AM
Don't be Offended if your Search Criteria is Unrealistic! This week I was contacted by a renter who was looking for a 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom, 3 car garage home in Wellington Florida under $1,500 a month.  The home had to be in an active adult 55+ community that was gated.  This prospective tenant had 3 dogs and credit that "wasn't the best" because they recently did a short sale. First, 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom, 3 car garage homes under $1,500 a month don't exist in Wellington Florida.  For $1,500 a month a tenant can usually get a 2-3 bedroom townhome with a … (48 comments)

wellington fl homes for rent: Why was my Rental Offer Denied Again? - 03/31/11 09:18 AM
Why was my Rental Offer Denied Again?
When writing an offer on a home for rent in Wellington Florida I highly recommend prospective tenants write their strongest offer possible and never look at homes for rent above their budget. Why? Rental inventory is low, which means multiple offers on homes for rent is common place. Now if a home for rent has been listed for more than 2-4 weeks the landlord might be willing to negotiate, but if it's a new rental listing or just had a price reduction there may be little to no negotiating. As a REALTOR in Wellington … (2 comments)
