We are looking to rent a 3-4 bedroom house in or near Ellsworth Maine. Any help or info would be greatly appreciated. :-)

Thanks,

Lisa Johnson

Lisa, try realtor.com (sounds strange but there is a rental search option) or visit the Ellsworth American's classified section located here: http://fenceviewer.com/site/index.ph...237&itemid=805

No matter WHAT i do on the Realtor dot com search - i never get any houses up for rent (for any town i put). I just put in Ellsworth, then in a 20 mile radius, and i keep getting homes for sale, even tho i put rental.

I'm online all the time on many websites, and either this one is not user friendly lol, or there are never any listed

There is no MLS (which feeds REALTOR dot com) for rentals in Maine, although I did see some rentals listed on its parent company's site move dot com. Unfortunately, very few property management companies or individuals with rental listings know about it. Kristin has your best bet, the local online newspaper and craigslist dot org probably has most of the rentals available as it is free to list them, it does lack a good search engine though, you have to filter through the entire state.

Here's Craig's List link with filtered rentals for Ellsworth. You can filter for any town or city and check or uncheck the boxes for cats and dogs.

Realtor.com is not a rental site, it's for real estate for sale.

Try Craigslist Maine for rentals. And as always, on Craigslist or any other internet site for rentals, exercise caution for personal safety and never send money in advance for anything.

Some real estate broker (agency) sites list rentals.
