My husband and I (and our 9 month old and indoor, house trained, well behaved pups) are relocating to the area. We'd like to take time learning about the real estate and schools before we buy, so would like to rent for a while. We are current homeowners in Houston, Texas. Can pay full amount up front and will sign whatever contract necessary to ease the minds of those who are afraid of renting to pet owners. :roll: We prefer to start renting in May or June but can wait until August. Would love to be near the beach.
