Read before posting in the rental forum
Use prefixes!!! They are a drop down selection before your thread title - "For Rent" or "Wanted".
Don't abbreviate town- use "Santa Rosa Beach" not SRB - this will help people find you in search and search engines.
This is the long term rental forum for South Walton!!! Do not put "long term rental" or "LTR" in your title! We already know that.
Please be specific. Indicate location, how many bedrooms and bathrooms, furnished or unfurnished, included utilities, rent, pets or no pets, amount of rent fixed or flexible, deposit, and smoking or non-smoking. Also include anything out of the ordinary like “must bring own mower for yard work”.
Pictures tell the whole story even better. If you don’t have any let the potential renter know.
When it comes to contact information feel free to use phone number, email address, private message, or all three. Also be sure to check back in on your post to follow up and answer any questions or make changes to price or other items (there is a time limit on editing original post so you can just add on a post with new info).
Once it’s rented, please simply post a response that the unit is rented and no longer available. Threads are not deleted so you have to update them or you will continue to get calls. You edit them by appending your thread with new info.
Please read the owner or agent's post closely, and your own - be sure to call or send email if they posted that info, you can also send a PM.
Also if the post is more than a couple of months old, and you’ve done a search, odds are pretty good that the unit is rented. Even then use the contact method posted instead of responding to an old posting.
Thanks and good luck!

It's about time. I've been thinking this. Thank you for saying it!!!
Good job! If anyone thinks of anything else - add it here.
When you start a new thread looking to rent your place or looking for a place, in front of the thread title is a drop down box called prefix - select either "For Rent" or "Wanted" - this will then show up as a prefix to your thread title and make it easier to get what you want.
"Wanted: 3br home within walking distance to beachfront bar"
"For Rent: 3br home within crawling distance to the Red Bar"

Some of us posting on here aren't as computer-savvy as the rest of you and are still learning and fumbling our way around...
