Houses For Rent In Palmer and Wasilla November 24th, 2010

Categories: Around Palmer, Uncategorized

Way back in October 2007 I wrote about rentals in Palmer and Wasilla on my other blog, valleymarket.com. I think it’s time for an update. It is common for me to get calls asking if I handle rentals…I don’t.

Here are my tips for finding a rental in the area:

1. Check with the local property managers.

Here are three…
Charlene Moss, she handles the most rentals,  373-8161
Traci Brewington at Prudential, 376-2414
Dawn Houston at Double Eagle, 357-1770

2. Check craigslist, you will find almost all the owner rentals on craigslist.

If you need to buy or sell in Palmer and Wasilla,  I can help you with that. Drop me a line by clicking on the contact button or give me a call at
(907) 232-7900.

Or, if you would rather do your own search on the MLS, just go my search page.
