There are two main types of leases available: long term and short term.  If you wish to stay on short term lease for only a few months during the winter, the price is usually a higher monthly rate than the rate for a 12 month lease.  Make sure you look at the total price and make important considerations such as where to store furniture and items in the off-season.  Short term rentals can be a big headache if they are not furnished with necessary items, and you don’t want to be stuck moving furniture every season.  Also keep in mind that short term rentals may be subject to Short term rental sales tax (similar to a hotel or tourism tax). 

The following are some Estimated Bills for accommodations in some popular areas in Florida.  Prices will vary widely and are always changing, but the following examples help illustrate the different available leases.  For the most current listings, take a look at the isnowbird.com FOR RENT page.

Renting a condo or other home from a private party.

A great way to spend the winter in a spectacular property is to look for private individuals renting out a home for your desired time period.  You will find links to some of these rentals on our “For Rent” pages.  There is some additional risk to renting from a private party.  Make sure to get as much information as you can about the accommodations and the person renting the home.  Make a solid effort to verify all information and make sure that the accommodation is a legitimate offering prior to sending money.  Some private party rentals use property management companies which help in the leasing process.
