What are my chances of finding a nice single family home for rent around Foxboro, Franklin, Wrentham, Norfolk area? My husband is getting closer to accepting a job in Attleboro and we would like to rent for the first year while we decide if we want to build a house or buy an existing one. Rental homes are a dime a dozen here in Texas but I'm finding the search difficult there in MA. Can anyone shed some light on this issue for me, please?

Rental houses aren't quite as common here as in Texas--and especially in that area. Although the area you're looking at is a bit outside my sweet spot, I can tell you in general that the housing downturn made some homeowners think a little differently about renting out their homes--and a few discovered that renting it out might be a good way to bridge their way to more of a seller's market. I just did a quick search, and there are 10 properties available for rent in those three towns in MLS--you may find more on Craig's List. Some of the rents seem quite high IMO, which may be a function of a first-time landlord not knowing what to ask. Good luck to your husband, and I hope you like Mass!

Thank you BuyWithHeather! I'm hoping that more will become available in the next couple of months as that is most likely when we will move. The 10 you found is more than what I could find. I just really don't want to have to look at apartments as we have two kids, two dogs, and two cats. I foresee problems with apartments and all of the animals.

My pleasure. I've worked with a lot of students at Tufts Vet School, and you're right--renting an apartment with animals can be tricky, and houses tend to be more accommodating. You may have to be flexible and broaden the towns you're looking at to find a place that meets your needs. Good luck to you and your family!
