To find rental homes in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, check online listing sites such as Homes.com and Trulia to find suitable rentals, and fine-tune the results using search filters on the sites. Set a rental budget, and consider looking for rentals when few people are doing the same, recommends Forbes. Enlist the help of family and friends, and compare the prices of similar properties to gauge value, suggests MarketWatch.
Focus on affordable rentals by having a budget in mind, and if time is not a constraint, find a good rental during a low-demand season such as winter, says Forbes. If there is no suitable rental property, consider for-sale listings that have been on the market a long time to score a good rental deal, suggests MarketWatch. View floor plans of rental properties on Homes.com, and check photos of listed properties to determine their suitability. Filter listings by price range, total bedrooms, number of bathrooms and square footage. Save your search, and sign up for updates of new listings when the site receives them.
Use a site such as Rentometer to compare rental rates by price, number of bedrooms, search radius and age of similar listings. The site bases its search results on the median and average rents in a neighborhood. If you have good credit, use your credit report to negotiate the rental price or other terms, MarketWatch suggests. Friends can provide leads or identify great rentals before they hit the market.
