My husband starts a job in S.A. on May 3rd. We thought we had a place lined up for him to rent, but the owner rented it out from underneath us! We will be buying a house in the (hopefully) near future. Does anyone have any rental property, or know of anyone with rental property, they would be willing to rent for 6 months or less? We are finding lots of places to rent, but everyone wants a 12 month lease. This would be for a professional man, in his 40's. He'd like to bring his dog if possible.

We live 1400 miles away and haven't been able to come to town to look in person. Any help would be greatly appreciated. He will be moving in 2wks. and we're starting to panic!!!

I'd suggest looking at the listings via the net @ the Express-News....or contact a Realtor, tell them what you need in preparation for buying a house. Knowing that they have a "live buyer" coming will quite possibly entice them to find you a short-term rental. Just be fair - if they find you the rental, use 'em for the purchase as well!

We live at the Vantage Apts in New Braunfels (just outside of San Antonio) I know they have them in San Antonio and they do short term leases. They also allow pets. I know a home might sound better but for short term these places are quite nice, and they always have openings because they have short term leases. Check out their website Vantage Communities (Corp. Website) - Apartments in San Antonio and see where the closest one is to where your husband is working.

Welcome to Texas!

look into a buyers clause for your lease. dont volunteer any information about how long you plan on staying. with this setup it doesnt matter what length of lease you sign.

Your situation is EXACTLY the same as mine! I was about to post the same question. Good luck finding something. Fingers crossed for the both of us.

i am going this weekend to sign my lease on a short term rental. I was surprised to see so many places that would do 6 month rentals. i am working with an Jerry from
Apartment & Relocation Center 210-493-1688 and so far they've been super helpful. I am so excited about moving to S.A next month!

Good luck!
