Guidelines on Renting Properties

Depending on the rental period, each must have set of guidelines to follow before signing off that contract. If you're renting for long period, here are the questions to ask:
  • is it conveniently located near the commercial areas i.e. banks, grocery stores, malls? - where we live now is very convenient as it is near the commercial area. banks are just 10 minute-drive from here. malls and grocery stores are just 15-minute drive.
  • is the school or church nearby? - my boy's school is just 4 blocks away from my house. it is pretty convenient to have a school nearby. i don't drive so i appreciate having his school to be of walking distance only... for about 10 minutes. that's why i recommend doing a research before buying or renting properties.
  • is the contract renewable?
  • is the water supply efficient? - it would be difficult if we have problem with water supply. last week, we had a very low pressure water system. our showers upstairs stopped working. i thought our water supply was cut off. we checked our downstairs shower and it worked well. so it was because of the low pressure that caused the trouble. so inconvenient.
  • does the property have the alarm system?
  • is the area gated?
All these and more must come in mind before buying or renting a property. Check out what I found about Oregon Vacation Rentals
