  • Tips For Renting A Home



    Do you know someone who is looking to rent their first home? If you are new to renting a house, and don't know where to begin, don't feel left out, it's a very tricky situation, especially if you don't know where to begin. Luckily, there are many tips and advice for renting, like this article from This Is Money, which breaks down the steps to renting your own home. Looking for rental homes in Cleveland Heights? Take a look at our inventory at Reilly Properties.

    Renting is often thought of as something done by people before climbing the property ladder, but many homeowners opt to rent for periods of time while waiting to buy.

    Choose the right property and agent, and renting can be a joy - the money might be paying someone else's mortgage but freedom and the ability to pass on responsibility is yours. On the other hand, take the wrong route and a tenancy can be six months or longer of daily stress and pain.

    But there are ways to make sure your next letting experience is more hospitable than horrible. Here are This is Money's top ten tips for renting a home:

    1. Do your research

    Spend plenty of time investigating the area. The advantage of renting is that you can move when your tenancy is up, but don't think too short-term – make sure this is the area you want to live in. If you have children make sure you look into the local schools and not just the nearest one – you may not be guaranteed a place. The best way to get a feel for an area is to visit and have a wander around on foot.

    You can search for properties in the area and local information.

    2. Use the whole rental market

    Don't just walk into the High Street estate agents. Large firms can have a wide range of property but check out property management agencies and private landlords too and make sure you are not paying over the odds.

    A good place to search for independent agents online is listing websites. covers the whole of the UK and has thousands of properties to rent. In London can also be a useful place to look.
