Renting a house in East Lake, Columbia, SC

Regardless of the type of house you are going to rent, location is important. That can be quite a lot to choose from. If you’re on a tight budget and are looking for cheap houses for rent, make your life easier and set up a maximum price filter in the top menu. You may be renting on a budget and 1 bedroom duplexes will do just fine or you may be able to spend a bit more and are looking at 4 bedroom single family homes for rent. Either way, choose wisely. Don’t fall for the impeccable lawn or a pool. Although these things are nice to have they aren’t worth a penny if you’re not able to enjoy them because of loud neighbors or a lack of time. Speaking of lack of time…

Renting a house with children

But if you have children there’s so much more to consider. A resource we all seem to lack: time. Avoiding a nightmare commute may be more important than deciding between a 2 bedroom or a 3 bedroom house. Although you could spend several hours in the car with your children and count it as family time, it’d be much nicer to spend this time around the dinner table. When you’re browsing through our rental homes, keep in mind the dreaded morning kindergarten-school-office Bermuda Triangle that is swallowing precious time out of your life. Draw a radius or a polygon around the school or the kindergarten you’ve chosen in East Lake, Columbia, SC and explore all the homes for rent located close by. Finding a house close to your kids’ school will drastically cut down your commute time. It will also help you see other things in your life more clearly, generally speaking. After all, choosing from 3 houses can be complicated and you’ve managed just fine.
