Sometimes buyers choose to rent first, allowing them the option to get to know the area better before buying a permanent home. Long-term rentals in the 30A area of South Walton County are in high demand, difficult to find and usually don’t stay on the market very long. You or someone you know may be looking for a property to rent in South Walton, and if you’ve spent any time at all in your search, you know it can be a bit of a challenge.
While the Davis Properties team focuses their efforts on home, condo and lot sales, we also want to make sure we can help with anyone’s local 30A real estate needs in whatever capacity we can. Because we frequently receive inquiries about rental properties; we decided to put together a resource list to assist in your rental property search.
Starting Your Local Search
If you are currently in South Walton and 30A looking for a home or condo to rent long term, one of the best local resources is to visit the post office in either Seaside or Rosemary Beach; both have community bulletin boards where owners frequently post rental information about their property.
The next best strategy is to drive the neighborhoods where you are interested in living. Many times a rental sign will be posted on the property and if you’re lucky enough to drive by when the sign first goes up then chances of securing it can increase.
Helpful Online Resources
Beyond that the next best place to look is online and we’ve got a list of helpful, local sites to assist in your search.
- Emerald Coast Homes Online: The public search site for our local multiple listing service (MLS). On the home page search bar [left side] select “AREA”. From the drop-down menu options: Select both “Areas” 17 and 18 to narrow your search to rental properties located along “30A”.
