Rental Services for Tenants

Attention: open in a new window. Print

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 and let us help you get started.

Short Term Rental Options

Typically, our landlords are looking for long term tenants of one year.  We do have occasional short term rentals, especially during the winter months. If we don’t have what you’re looking for, we recommend the following:

Townplace Suites by Marriott 802-872-5900
Green Mountain Suites 866-337-1616

Vacation Rentals

At this time, we don’t offer vacation rentals.  However, the following sites are very helpful!

We're here to help you! Whether you're just looking to get a lay of the rental market landscape or you need our direct assistance. Please give us a call.
