Some of the biggest shocks to renters include:
- Having pets drastically reduces what’s available. Large pets narrow the selection even further
- Expecting a landlord to keep a rental vacant for over a month greatly reduces your chance of getting the unit
- Short term leases (less than a year) cost a landlord substantially, both due to lost income from vacancy and the cost of restoring and finding a new renter
- If you’ve looked at a half a dozen units and everything is way off the mark, then things are very unlikely to improve.
As a realtor it’s important to convey this information. As a renter it’s important that your realize that ignoring your realtor’s advice will quickly land you without a realtor. No one likes to be ignored, but more importantly your realtor doesn’t want to waste your time and the realtor’s time chasing possibilities that will never happen.
