Rental Services for Tenants
Searching for a rental in Greater Burlington can be overwhelming – especially if you’re not familiar with the area! Unlike many cities, there is no rental MLS in Burlington (or Vermont!). To find a rental, you really have to use a blanket approach and scour rental sites, local papers, and know who to call. Historically, the Greater Burlington area has vacancy rates well below the national average, contributing even more to the challenge many renters face in finding suitable housing.
Coldwell Banker Hickok & Boardman Realty offers a service that manages your rental search from start to finish. We start by reviewing your rental criteria, such as: number of bedrooms, commute time, “type” (apartment, condo, house), pet friendly, price range etc. Based on this information, we research what’s available on various rental sites, make the calls, set up the appointments and then take you out to see the properties on a guided Rental Tour.
Depending on your rental criteria & current available inventory, your Guided Rental Tour may include 5 - 8 properties. Ideally, we like to have at least 2 weeks notice to make sure we’ll be able to provide you with the best service possible. Your rental tour will generally be conducted Thursday and/or Friday - please plan your schedule accordingly.
Rental Search Fees
Our fee is $600 with a $300 initial deposit. The balance is due upon completion of the day long tour. Feel free to email to request a Rental Criteria Form
