Do you know of any such auto dealerships? or with the third party lending, which would be the best? thanks

Default Best Sources to Find Rental Home

My family and I are moving to the area in the end of February. We currently have three kids and will probably add one more to the lot. I will be working at LAFB. We need to rent/lease a home and my wife and I are coming out to find one next week (2nd to 7th). We're hoping to find a 4BR+ home somewhere with a decent commute. We're looking essentially anywhere between Hampton and Williamsburg. I've looked at Trulia and also found the dailypress website. We've seen some online that look decent enough between $1500 and $1800 a month. What are the best resrouces to find available homes for rent/lease? If anyone has any suggestions or even personally knows of a good sized home to rent/lease please post or PM me.

Thanks in advance.

JP

These I recommend.

HomesDatabase - Home for Sale and Rent in DC, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania

Find Real Estate Listings, School and Neighborhood Information and More - Realtor.comĀ®

Homes for Sale & Real Estate Listings >> DirectHomes.com

I use Trulia and also like Craigslist for those landlords/owners who utilize postlets.

Best wishes to you and your family!

Thanks Nikki75. We've played with realtor.com plenty before, but haven't looked at the other two. They look pretty good. Most of what we've found so far has been through trulia or one of the local newspapers.

Hi, I'm relocating to the Hampton Roads area, preferably Chesapeake/Portsmouth. I've been looking on Craigslist, Pilotonline, etc. Need to find a 1 BR that's well under $700.00/month, accepts a cat, has washer/dryer hookups, in a decent area that's less than 40 minutes away from Head of River Road in Chesapeake. So far I've only been able to find apartments that offer one or some of what I listed here, but not all that I've listed. I'm not trying to be picky, these are definitely needs versus just "wants". I'm tempted to contact that apartment locating company called Locators, Inc. but they want $150 to just give me a printout of vacant places for me to do all the calling, etc. I know nothing about this area. ............any advice?

Default Thank you for helping.

I am thinking that I might like this area of the nation. I don't even know what airport I should fly into...Newport News or Norfolk. I don't really want to drive a lot of highways, tunnels or bridges, and like a smaller town atmosphere, but within public transportation or driving distance to a larger city.

I want to come to this area this summer.

Perhaps, you could suggest places that I might like to live? I'm close to being an empty nester and am thinking of relocating in a couple of years.
