Can I afford it?
As a general rule, your income should be three times as much as the monthly rent. You can also calculate your budget by percentage: financial experts suggest allocating no more than 25% - 36% of your income to overall housing costs, which include utilities, water, Internet, and other fees.
Do I need a real estate agent?
For a minimal fee, a real estate agent can take you to all the rental homes in your price range and desired neighborhood. It will save you lots of time in the long run, especially when you tell them exactly what you're looking for in a rental home. For example, if your budget requires you to look for cheap houses for rent, you can do a preliminary search on HomeFinder to get an overview of the available rental homes in your price range. An agent will have access to more detailed, insider information on rental homes available, and can help you make the best decision for your needs.
