Renting a House
I recently posted a question about renting an apartment, but now we have changed our minds, we are going to get a stay at home nanny that will live in with us... so we are going to get a house so that we will have more room and can get it cheaper on both ends... Can anyone tell me of a great website or any sources that rent out good houses in the Collin County area? We are also wanting to be able to move in with the next 6 weeks. Thank you so much!!! :-)

My husband is a Realtor and owns his own property management company. He helps individuals and families find homes in the metroplex that are for rent or lease. Feel free to give him a call and talk with him. He can be reached at ###-###-#### and his name is Hank Harmon. Good luck!

My name is C. Roeschen and I'm with Keller Williams.
If you would like to email me directly at ____@____.com with specifics I would love to set you up to receive emails with homes currently listed for rent in the Collin area.
I would simply need bedrooms,baths, city, and price range.
I would love an opportunity to represent you. This will not cost you anything.
Best of luck!

I don't know if you are ONLY wanting to rent or would consider buying, but if you can swing it, it is a GREAT time to buy. Especially in Providence Village and Savannah. Those are two communities off 380. There are lots of foreclosures out here right now. We bought a house that was built 2 yers ago for $180K for $115K. This is a great place for kids-huge resort tyle pools with water slides, spash fountains, parks everywhere. Just thought I'd let you know in case it is an option. There are severl for lease signs out here too.

When I was growing up, our family dog was a Collie named "Spirit"!
My husband and I own a Real Estate/Mortgage company and our main focus is assisting people who need to sell or refinance their home to avoid foreclosure. Many times, we are able to help them find a rental house that is nicer than the one they own and can no longer afford for less than their mortgage payment! Unfortunately, Collin county has many people in that situation. That being said, there are many rental houses in Collin, depending on you preference of age, sq. footage, school district, lease price/month, etc.
Additionally, I run the mortgage operation for us, and can let you know what your mortgage options are, or put together a game plan to own a home in the future.

When we were looking to rent we used www.realtor.com. Turned out, though, that we were able to buy, getting an FHA loan with only 3% down & paying monthly about as much as rent would have been.
