LONG TERM RENTAL IN PORT ARANSAS, TX 78373 I am looking

Resolved Question:

LONG TERM RENTAL IN PORT ARANSAS, TX 78373

I am looking desperately for a long term ( not winter texan rate) 12 month lease properties in Port Aransas, TX 78373. We have 2 small dogs and it has to be pet friendly. We are currently living on the beach in a "winter texan rate home" We will be moving out March 1st, 2013 and need help finding a place to live. This is a beach/tourist town and it is very hard to find a long term that will allow pets. We are willing to do a for sale by owner. We do not want to live in the local towns. Rockport, Padre Island, Corpus Christi.... We want to continue to live here in Port Aransas, TX. 78373

Thank you! This is like finding a needle in a haystack. It is a tight knit tourist town.

Expert:  GeneralistWindylen replied 2 years ago.

Yes,Erika. That is correct. I have started but it's all for short term basis. I can't even check it out because the accessible one is only till November of 2013.
Expert:  GeneralistWindylen replied 2 years ago.

All the apartments and condos I checked do not allow pets. Long term rentals can't be checked also online. I guess you need to call them. I have found one in Bridge Point Landing. You need to give out your personal information to check on long term availability. Please fill it out at http://www.apartmentguide.com/apartments/Texas/Portland/Bridge-Pointe-Landing/46591/. You can also call them at(NNN) NNN-NNNN

I know this a hard one. It has to be in Port Aransas ONLY not surrounding areas. I need to continue to live in this part of the island. You can look it up on google.maps.com and put in Port Aransas, TX 78373 and see exactly where I am talking about about. It has a population of just under 3500 people. If you can find me a place I am willing to give a considerable bonus.

Expert:  Joan replied 2 years ago.

Hello,

I found one that is for sale or long term rental only. You can view the page here: http://www.trulia.com/property/3101186594-1701-Palisades-Dr-Port-Aransas-TX-78373

This is from the advertisement:

"Walk to beach on protected sidewalk or lounge by your pool - less than 500' from
the gulf of Mexico. In town and close to all that Port A has to offer. Excellent
value in this 5 bedroom, 3 and 1/2 bath home. Solid construction in very nice
neighborhood. Awesome sunsets. Long term rentals only. Unfurnished. Large master bedroom and bath down".

Since it is also for sale you may be able to negotiate price on this property.

This came closer to what I am looking for. They did not have a rental rate. The 1500 was for a 30 year mortgage. It is only 2 people and my husband is gone 2 weeks at a time on location at work. A 5 bedroom home is way too big. We do not need or want that much living space. It looked like a ok home. For that price, I would expect the yard that have been keep up a little better. The other problem I am having on top of finding a long term rental is that we have 2 small dogs. We are more than willing to put a pet deposit in addition to the the other required deposits. I appreciate you finding this home you listed above, but it is not quite it. If you have anymore questions for me, feel free to ask.

Hi,

I will continue to look for you. They did state long term rental, but I suspected that it may have been too big for you. Hopefully we can find something for you. Joan

Joan,

Thank you for for willingness to work with me on this. I know this is not an easy answer. It requires some heavy searching. I am continuing to look at places online, too.
Expert:  Joan replied 2 years ago.

Hi,

I found these Houses and Condos for sale: http://www.homes.com/Real_Estate/TX/City/PORT%20ARANSAS/ Many of them would have a cheaper mortgage than if you were to rent. This is one that caught my eye that seemed reasonably priced in comparison to what the season rentals are: http://www.homes.com/listing/174438738/4901_St_Hwy_361_115_PORT_ARANSAS_TX_78373

It is less a month than most rentals are per day. Please let me know if this is the right track.

Joan,

The reason why we are looking for a long term rental is to save money to purchase a home in this area. The one place I showed you in the link, I talked to the agent. This may be perfect for our situation. As you know purchasing a home takes time and some reasonable planning. There is no way we can close on a loan and move in by March 1st. This place if we can come to terms with current tenants, will allow us time to save money, time to look for a perfect home, or have one built. I appreciate all of your hard work. This place may not pan out. I certainly hope not; but non the less, it could not. The agent/owner is on vacation but will let me know in a few days. If you find anything else as a possible backup, please let me know. Thank you so much for your hard work and time. Have a wonderful New Year!
Expert:  Joan replied 2 years ago.

Hi,

I will continue to monitor the homes and see what I can find. I understand the situration and I have found that area is hard to pin something down, because of it being a beautiful tourist area and the people that do own the homes had done it for rental investment. Thank-you for the accept and generous bonus. If I do find something I will post to this thread as a follow up to you and you will be notified. I hope all works out and you have a happy New Year.

Thank you, Joan ! I appreciate your hard work and dedication. This is a small town and the properties are mostly for tourist rentals. I do appreciate that if you do find anything else, you will let me know. Have a wonderful New Year!
