We are pleased that you have an interest in our house, our lovely home is still available for lease and we want responsible adults/family that are neat and also believe that you have what it takes to take care of our house as if it were Yours. The main reason our house is up for lease is because I got transferred from my place of work here in Norman OK on a Missionary Work, to serve God and humanity. I work with First General Baptist Church here in Norman OK. I initially had it up for sale but later had a change of mind after we thought it unwise to sell out this property in a perfect neighborhood as this one. Due to my urgent transfer we could not remove the for sale sign, and leaving the house empty is not a good idea for us so we allowed our Church members stay pending our return from Norman Oklahoma..after all we did for them not asking for any monthly rent, they turn me and my family down and did not keep to their promise. I and my family don’t think we will be coming back to occupy my house. We will be very pleased if we can find the right potential tenant to rent our home, a person who is a clean & responsible and does not tolerate anything that has to do with dirt. we also would like to know more about you and your family, your renting experience and how long and when you plan moving into our home.
The rent includes all utilities and close to all amenities. INCLUDED IN THE RENT: Cable , Kitchen completely equipped, Kettle – Toaster – Dishwasher – Freezer – Microwave – Oven – Dryer – Heat – Water – Washing Machine and Electric.
