Will you be working in a different town or city for several months? Maybe you have a loved one who is receiving medical care away from home and you need a place to stay for a long time but not permanently. Are you looking for suggestions that will help you to find the best place to live while you're temporarily in your new location? If that's the case, continue reading for some helpful tips.
One option is to stay at a hotel that has special pricing for customers who will be staying for an extended amount of time. You might even be lucky enough to find a hotel that has a free breakfast as part of the price. Some extended-stay hotels even have a small kitchen and dining area, which would be a huge benefit. That would mean that you could eat whenever you were at the hotel. If you will be living at the hotel by yourself, find out if family members could join you for short visits.
Another idea if you need extended temporary housing is to look for an apartment that is close to where you'll be spending your days. You might have to pay a larger deposit since you won't be signing a long-term lease. But the benefit of having an entire apartment suite all to yourself would more than likely also mean that others could visit you without you having to make special arrangements with a hotel clerk.
Maybe your needs are so simple that you'd be happy renting a bedroom in somebody's home. If you are a church attender, your ecclesiastic leader might be able to communicate with a colleague to put you in touch with an individual or a family who will be happy to have you as a temporary resident.
Whether you stay at a hotel, at an apartment, or at somebody's home, be very clear as to how long you'll be staying. For instance, if you stay at somebody's home, the space may be needed for summertime guests. Something else to consider is whether you'll be traveling with a pet, say a dog. Find out if there is an extra pet deposit. If you're staying in somebody else's home, find out if your pet will actually be welcome. Clarify that your pet is housebroken and well behaved and that you'd be happy to pay extra for having your pet with you.
