Zillow, Trulia or a Property Management Company for Help Renting in the Baltimore Area?

System - Tuesday, September 2, 2014

As helpful as online real estate resources Zillow or Trulia are, you'll want to work directly with a realtor and property management company for help renting a home. And, in the Baltimore area, we can help you.

Zillow and Trulia offer big picture housing perspective

Using Zillow or Trulia, you can educate yourself about potential neighborhoods to live in. Both sites have created websites (and mobile apps) that integrate with maps and provide relevant snapshots about local schools, crime rates, mass transit access. They also offer educational articles, Q&As and Forums where you can ask specific questions.

You can search through rental listings offered. Just don't get your heart set on specific properties as the listing information is not 100% up-to-date (see Why You Shouldn't Use Third Party Sites To Find Real Estate Listings).

What you'll also find helpful is how you can easily connect with real estate agents so you can go beyond surfing to checking out specific properties to rent out. Here is the Yaffe Team listing on Zillow and the Yaffe Team listing on Trulia.

Here's why it's valuable to connect with a professional real estate agent for help renting a property:

  • Realtors have expert opinions to share (see The Benefits Of Having Realtors Give Opinions).

  • Given their local expertise, they are able to make sense of data, housing trends, and local knowledge.  

  • They have strong ties to the community.  

  • They are in the business of buying, selling and renting property. Their guidance makes the home buying, selling or renting process go smoothly.

  • They can customize the process to meet your individual home ownership goals.  

  • Realtors will have access to the most up-to-date property listing information for their area.
