Finding the Perfect Rental Home

There are many benefits to renting a house, including more space, privacy, and a backyard, but deciding on what you need in a rental home can be a bit tricky. Here are a few things to consider as you search for your perfect rental home.

It's About Location

While it may sound simple, finding the right location can be tough. It’s best to look for a home centrally located to all the things and places in your life you consider most important – jobs, schools, friends, shopping, dining, hobbies, etc. This way, you can eliminate long commutes and spend more time doing the things you love.

Size and Floor Plan

Depending on your budget and the area, you should have a minimum number and an ideal number in mind as far as square footage.  We recommend considering the type of floor plan you’d prefer as well. Are you seeking an open concept floor plan or want a more traditional split floor plan? Does a single story or a two story work best for you and your family?

Bedrooms and Bathrooms

When searching for your future rental home, it’s important to take into consideration how many bedrooms and bathrooms you may need. If you have kids, will they share a room? Do you have guests often? Maybe you'd like an extra room to serve as a home office, study, or hobby room. Take a few minutes to think about what would work best for you. 


Pets and Backyard

If you have pets, make sure the home you’re renting is pet-friendly. With Progress Residential®, you can rest assured that we have some of the friendliest pet policies around, but there may be some HOA restrictions. For more information check out our Pet Policy. Consider searching for a home with hard flooring  throughout to avoid the wear and tear pets can have on carpets. You'll also want to make sure you have a fenced-in backyard.  Maybe you'd like a deck or swimming pool for outdoor entertaining. Chances are we have a home in your area with the perfect  outdoor space for you.

Community Amenities

Many of our homes are located within master-planned communities or home owners associations (HOAs). One of the best perks that comes from living in a master-planned community is access to community amenities! Consider if having access to amenities like a community pool, basketball court, tennis courts, and walking trails are a must.
