Houses for rent - suggestion for site

Hey,

I found this site through a search on google and it's helped a lot...it needs some more advertising!

Most of San Marcos needs more advertising, really...I'm having a hard time trying to find houses for rent on the internet. Are there any sites other than the San Marcos Record which offer free information on houses and duplexes for rent? Maybe it is easier to just drive around looking for signs?

A section on housing would be an excellent improvement on this site. Keep up the good info.

Actually...Driving around is your best bet.
The rent houses, and I mean the really good ones not some fratrat dump, have really good landlords. They've been renting their houses in the lil' ol' town of San Marcos for so long that they don't have to advertise. The house usually gets passed down to friends, because if you have a great house with a good landlord people close to you will know about it. Then when the lease is up or you want to move there's always someone ready to jump on it. I know 4 or 5 landlords and none of them ever advertise except for an ocasional sign in the front yard.

I was working out off of hunter road between posey and centerpoint, there's quit a few neighborhood roads that go west off of hunter. Each one had at least one for rent or lease on it.
But my suggestion is to drive all over town, find an area you like and then start looking for signs.

The guy that I bought my house through, owns a few in town, his name is Clarence Miller @ Hart Properties, he's pretty cool I guess. The other guys I know, never have vacancies.

hope this was some help.

Thank you for the help...sorry for such a delay to your reply!

I checked out a duplex so far...not many people advertise for August rent until right before August...the whole 30 day notice thing drives me crazy.
I like to know wayyy ahead of time where I'm going...hehe..
So far, it seems like South Austin has better apartment deals (with garages) than SM. It's hard to find a garage in SM and not pay out the a$$ for it!

I was looking for apartments in this town for six months, and I finaly found one with a great deal. of course I had to wait and then ask for it but.... I guess it will all work out. its a three bedroom for 925 a month, but it has free cable and roadrunner so that should be kool. at any rate good luck to you folks who is searchin'!
