My wife and I should be in the Vero Beach area around the first of May. Our plan is to rent short term while we search for a home. If possible, would like to keep it at about $800-900 per month. Any suggestions?

I am not a local yet, but I hope some of this info will help:
For house rentals, look on zillow.com for some ideas of the price range and what's available. I am sure there is a similar site for apartment rentals. Regarding the length of your rental, I remember reading on this forum that most rentals have to be a lease of at least 7 months to avoid being taxed like a hotel stay. Also, if you have pets, many of the house rentals seem to NOT allow them. We considered the idea of renting for a while but decided the restrictions on the length of rental, pets, and having to move twice made it too inconvenient.

If I were you, I'd consult a realtor. If you get in touch with one now, they can help you find both a rental house AND a home you can purchase. I recommend a member on here- FlaLadyB. She may not be able to assist you in Vero, but she has been in the business for a long time and knows a lot of realtors in the surrounding areas. Good luck!!

If you only listen to this- do NOT go on craigslist and put money down on a house. There are many scammers out there that will take your money and run, as well as homeowners that will rent their home to you while it is going thru foreclosure process. Do not be a victim!
