A friend is relocating from out of state to Alamosa for her job (in one of the professional fields). She is having a really hard time finding decent housing. She says very little is available. So I'd like to try to help her by appealing to the knowledgeable people of this forum. Where would you find housing in Alamosa?

She is looking for any rental property up to $1400 per month that takes cats. The property should be decent and located in a safe area. Where should she look? Does Alamosa have good internet coverage? Will she need to employ a realtor in a town like Alamosa? Is it more a "word of mouth" kind of town?

Thanks!

"She says very little is available". Do you know what resources she has been using?

Most people on this forum recommend a website called padmapper, but I just checked there and nothing is listed for Alamosa. Here's a property management company I found on Google that she could try: Darlene McCarroll. And another one: https://www.renteclipse.com/

I haven't dealt with any rentals in Alamosa but we are in the process of buying a house there and moving across the Valley. It is my understanding that rentals are very tight, as is the home buying market. I would suggest calling a local realtor to get the lay of the land. If you are interested, feel free to message me and I can give you the name of my realtor. If nothing else, she might be able to point your friend in the right direction.

Internet is very good in and around town. I am so looking forward to getting rid of my satellite internet.
