I get a lot of calls from people looking for places to rent. I hate to even write about it may lead to an increase in the number of calls I get. I don’t work with rentals at all. I mostly send people to Google or mention apartment buildings in my area that have vacancies. There are thousands of apartments in St. Paul but there isn’t a comprehensive data base of apartments for rent or even a list of all the apartment buildings.
There are several web sites devoted to renting apartments in St. Paul and there is Craig’s list and the major real estate web sites like Zillow and Trulia. The Minnesota Attorney General’s office has some information on renting an apartment – Moving into an apartment
In some parts of the country working with a real estate agent when renting an apartment is common in Minnesota it is fairly rare.
