To whom it may concern,

My fiancee and I will be relocating to Charlotte area after we get married in December and I'll joining our established office in Charlotte so employeement isn't an issue. We're currently getting our home on the market and would like to rent before purchasing a home in Charlotte, so we can take time determining exactly where we would like to settle down in the Charlotte area. We're both professionals who have been with our firms in excess of 30 years.

We have two beautiful, house trained and well behaved dogs (Female Lab "8 years old" and Male Boarder Collie "4 years old"). Please note we Resuced both dogs so they are very much part of our family.

Our desire is to stay close to Raintree, Quail Hollow, Baxter Village areas being we have airport travel needs and my office is near Quail Hollow.

Our Budget can excced the $1500 I listed above, but we would like to keep it reasonable being we'll be searching for a home over the first year and we're not sure if our home will sell in time for our relocation. Please note, we will treat your home as if it was ours and can provide pictures of our current residence so you can see how we've taken care of our home.

Thank you for your time and apoligize if this wasn't posted in the correct location,

Chris

Saw on Craigslist there was a house listed in Raintree for about 1500. We found our rental through Craigslist. Some listings on zillow and trulia.
Good luck

Default Thank You Molly

Molly,

Yes, I've been searching these tools for some time and they are good sites for Renting. I thought though since this site is also a great relocation and information toool that someone might see it and know of something that's available for two working professionals.

Once again, Thank You for your response.

30 - 45 days before you move, get some rental listings in those areas. Anything longer than that probably isn't realistic. Most leasees give notice in the 30 day period+ so that will be your prime time to look for something.

I'll be visiting over the next month or two so this is good advice. It's been a long time since we've rented.

A quick scan at Trulia or HotPads shows many rentals in the $1200 to $1500 range in good middle class areas. This is not so hard to do, it's the relocators looking for houses under $1000 that would end up looking in neighborhoods with challenged schools or crime issues.

I would suggest looking at Carolinahome site, all rentals posted by property management companies are in there, if you find an agent they can spend time for you.

Btw, use google maps etc to see what you around the area once you finalize, I mean do you have shopping, restaurants, and other things that you need close by and satelite view will give you good idea of surrounding areas.

Default Thanks KN006

Between planning a wedding, selling our current home, on going projects for work and relocating our time is thin but we've been using Craigslist, trulia and zillow daily with limited success. I'll try your recommended website for management firms. Once again thank you for your courteous response.
