We have been searching for a rental for months in Old NE and Pass a grille and recently expanded our search to Hyde park. We have been living in St. Pete for a month now. We regularly drive around old NE to look for signs, we have talked to realtors and rental companies, and we check Craigs list every day. We are looking for a 3 bedroom house/apt for around $2,000 in a nice family friendly area. It's not that the houses are too expensive, but there are few 3 bedrooms available. We are starting to feel that we may never find a place. Does anyone have ideas on what else we can do? Thanks!

The problem is that you're in high demand markets in terms of sales and these aren't places where people are likely to rent in the first place. Homes in the beach communities that are rental tend toward much more expensive short-term versus long-term, which is far more lucrative to the landlord. Have you considered neighborhoods next to these areas that are somewhat similar, a bit less high demand and less expensive (which is another problem given your current budget)? If you go just west of 4th Street from Old Northeast into Allendale-Five Points/Northeast Park for example, I already see 4 houses in your price range.

I dont know what you can do other than keep looking, it is the high season from now until september that school starts , a lot of people start looking now so they can be moved in before the school year. I know my wife's best friend has been looking at NE St pete/Hyde park fro the last 6 months and can't find anything under 3k, the problem at least in Hyde Park is that you have lots of 1BR some 2BR when you get to 3BR+, you usually see things like 3BR/4bath because they are geared towards 3 young professionals sharing a house that way they can charge a lot more ~3k, you can look in Palma Ceia although not to many rentals come up there too, I own a rental property in Virginia Park which came with a tenant but her lease was up 2 ago, when we listed it I got so many calls I had to do 1 open house showing because I couldnt coodinate with so many people, and close to 30 people showed up, but I have seen some houses with for rent signs.

I just looked on Zillow and I don't see any 3-bedroom rentals for under $2K in his neighborhoods.
