I am looking online for rental companies in the Pickens and Fannin county area and not having much luck. All I am finding are luxury vacation cabin rentals and looking for long term. Can anyone direct me in the right path or recommend a few names and websites I would be greatly appreciated.

I have been watching craigslist and can't trust that site with all the "rent to own sites" and the Blue Ridge observer is another I have been checking. I know a good source is word of mouth it be great if I was local but for me that's kinda hard

I've had good results with Trulia.com's rental section - you can search by map, zipcode or city, and you can enter criteria like number of bedrooms and price range. I tried a search for "pickens county ga" and found 13 single-family homes for rent, with prices from $800 to $2400.

As always, be cautious about anything that sounds too good to be true.

I souldn't expect to find too many companies specializing in non-vacation rentals up there- there's not a very big market for long-term rentals in that area, so they'd starve if they focused on that market.

Stacy - Were I you, I would call one of the real estate companies in Blue Ridge and ask for their advice on how best to go about finding a rental. I frequent Blue Ridge (Fannin County), and there are certainly rentals (apartments, homes) that should be suitable for your needs.

Exactly. I'd suggest looking for private owners rather than real estate or property management companies. There are still quite a few people on the verge of foreclosure, or who need to relocate but can't sell their homes and want to rent them out for a few years until the market comes back.
