A Quick Little Tool for Comparing Rents:  Rentometer I came across this site as I was doing some research for one of my rental clients.  It is called Rentometer, and it gives you a quick look at the rents in any given town. Just plug in your address, town, state, number of bedrooms, and the rent that you propose to charge.  Rentometer will come back and tell you how your rental rate compares with the rest of the market.  This would be a great tool to share with landlords as well as tenants.  Enjoy!
