Helllo...

Hopefully somebody would be able to point me in the right direction. My husband, 2yr old and I will be moving to the area for my husband's job. We are not going to buy at this point, and looking for a rental. There seems to be a real lack of rentals on craigslist. We are looking in the range of 2900-3400 a month and looking for a older home with character and new renovations. Looking to be in Ventura proper and not out in the burbs. Does anybody know why the rental market is so small here and any other websites I should know about would be helpful.

Thx in advance for any help!!

Hi I lived in Ventura last year but rented an apt and now am moving back to same area this week. I actually found the place I live which is safe and gated because I was lost when I was looking around. Have you looked into getting a realtor?How many bedrooms are you looking for? If you are in the area or coming down before the move I encourage you to drive around and see the different areas to get a feel. Areas like Camarillo or Thousand Oaks are nice as well Where are you moving from?If I can help email me.

You don't need to spend that much for a house in Ventura. There are a lot of 3bd houses in the low $2k's. Check out the local paper for many more listings www.venturacountystar.com. For older homes, you'll want to look in Midtown and Downtown. Everything on the east end will only be 10-40 years old. I live in Midtown now and grew up here and love it. Let me know if you have any other questions.

I live in Oxnard and work in Ventura. You could rent a fairly nice home for your budget. Many of the rentals in the area are handled by management companies. Try looking for property management companies in Ventura and you should get the help you need.

The MLS is a good place to look for rentals and I'd be happy to send you listings. Mid-town and hillside rentals usually place signs on the property as they go pretty quickly so it is good to drive around the area. Towards the end of month you'll see a lot more signs (the last few weeks I've seen quite a few pop up.) Real estate agents can be property managers in CA so that's why the MLS is a good place to look. (Which doesn't interest me.) Craigslist is just OK but I've found some perfect homes for clients there. (I do a lot of work with placing new Patagonia employees as their relocation go-to person.) The property management companies are not as flexible in their negotiations and very few of them allow pets. In that price range, you should have not problem finding a suitable home for your family.

Thanks for the tip about MLS, I was not aware of this. Craigslist has been disappointing for me.

To TernDownTheRoad-I am also looking for rental properties-preferably in the downtown area or hillside. Do you have any listings you could send me? We are moving from Little Rock in July and may have a place but it's still not for sure. Price range is 2000 up to 4000 if it's awesome. In the meantime, I'll look at the MLS. I have also had trouble finding rentals online with craigslist etc.
Thanks!
