Condos are not like apartments. They are individually owned. There is no one source for Rental Information. You can’t just walk in to an office like an apartment complex and ask to see rentals.
Monterey Rentals – Information is hard to find. There is no central source. Below are some of the places to start:
Classifieds listing houses, condos, apartments, rooms and vacation homes for rent.
Mostly list of the larger apartment complexes in Monterey Bay and the surrounding area. You can click on links and go direct to sites of some of the complexes. Also list of the property management companies in the Monterey Bay area with links to their websites to make contacting them easier. Lists which property managers handle vacation rentals.
Renter beware! If you are renting from an established property management company you have a fair amount of protection. Most will have a physical location and/or a website. Some work out of their homes but will meet you and have a DRE# on their business cards. Apartment complexes often have a resident manager and an office.
But if you are renting from an online agency then be careful. If it looks too good to be true – it often is! If the rent is incredibly cheap, they ask you to send money or personal info such as credit card or bank account numbers via email and mail, then beware. Most owners will have a local company represent them or meet you at the property.
