Often, relocating means needing to find temporary housing. If you’re still in the process of looking for a permanent home, or waiting for your new home to be ready, than short-term housing might be what you need.
There are many resources available for finding short-term housing. Dependent on what you will need and for how long, many vacation rental companies can provide online availability and booking information. If you’ll want temporary housing for an extended period of time, there are options for lease agreements with companies such as: Airbnb, Homeaway, Vacation Rental By Owner, and others. During the peak seasons, keep in mind that prices for monthly rates might be higher.
If you’re relocating for a job, it’s common that many companies will take care of arranging temporary housing for their employees. If it’s required that you arrange your own accommodation, there are companies that specialize in temporary corporate housing.
Once temporary housing has been organized, it can now be decided what to do with furniture and personal belongings. Short term, corporate housing, and vacation rentals usually come furnished, therefore storing your belongings might be something to consider, until you move into your permanent home. If you have children, bringing any items for them is advised, such as cribs, high chairs and any other necessary items.
