Hey, Kim here at MAREI . . .
It seems that 3 or 4 times a year I get one or two weeks of people calling me and emailing me with a friend or client who is looking for a place to rent or rent to own. I guess because I buy and flip houses and coordinate the MAREI events, I should have some magical power to be all knowing and not only know everyone and their phone number, but also know everything that everyone has for rent.
Sorry, I can remember a lot of things . . . what happened 4 years ago, someones email address or face.
I have a really hard time remembering names. I put phone numbers into a database, but I still start just about every phone with a search on Google.
And when it comes to houses for rent, I have no idea. I don’t shop houses for rent, I don’t have a database, nothing.
When I rented a house a year or so ago, I went to Zillow.com and out of that expereience at least I knew one house that was going to be for rent a week before it went on Zillow because we were moving out.
So I am very sorry, but I can’t help you or your friend find a place to rent. I can offer up some resources.
- Zillow.com in the for rent section.
- Rentals.com is another great site that many property managers use to manage their properties for rent, please note that MAREI members get a discount to post properties here and I beleive when you post on Rentals.com that it will syndicate the listing to places like Zillow.
- Craigslist.com is also a great place, but you do need to watch for scams, however you will find many a listing that comes from a member of MAREI that you know and trust, who may not make it to Rentals.com or Zillow.
- Facebook.com has a lot of homes for sale or rent groups, you can search there for homes for rent or make a post about what you are looking for in a rental, or do both. Just log into Facebook and search homes for rent kansas city and you will find a bunch of groups to work with.
- MAREI has a Facebook Group – Kansas City Real Estate Investors, you could also post what you are seeking there.
- Property Managers – we have quite a few property managers that advertise with MAREI. I would seek out their website and see what they have for rent.
I am very sorry, but other than these suggestions, I really can’t help you find a property for rent.
