Local property management firms have teamed up with a non-profit to form the Carr Fire Housing Coalition and to release a website and phone service that will provide a centralized resource of most available rental properties. This is an effort to rehouse tenants and landowners permanently displaced by the destruction caused by the Carr Fire. Coordination with the City of Redding and Shasta County has occurred and will continue throughout the rehousing process.
Information can be accessed either by website at CarrFireHousing.com or by live telephone answering service at (530) 349-4777. Other homeowners who wish to rent their property or other property managers are encouraged to join the effort to make the maximum amount of properties available for rent to fire victims.
The effort is spearheaded by the North Valley Property Owners Association, a 501(c)3 non-profit that will provide guidance to property managers and private landowners on best rental practices during the area’s State of Emergency as well as how to list inventory online.
All participants have agreed to a Memorandum of Understanding to ensure that landlords and property management businesses will not engage in any form of price gouging as housing supply is challenged during this trying time.
