What To Consider When Renting Temporary Housing


Are you planning on renting temporary housing for a move, work assignment, vacation, etc.? If so, there are certain things you should consider to make sure the process goes as smoothly as possible. If you don't, you might regret your decision and have to search for something better at the last minute.

The Length of Your Stay

How long are you planning to stay at the temporary housing rental? If you end up needing to stay longer than expected, it might not still be available to rent at that time. If you anticipate that your stay may need to be extended at some point, be clear about that with the rental provider. 

Your Total Budget

When searching for temporary housing accommodations, you should know your total budget. It's wise to plan what you need money for, like rent, food, utilities, unexpected expenses, etc. Whenever possible, you should over-budget in case you need more money than expected, so you don't find yourself in a financially precarious situation. 

The Best Location

What is the reason that you need temporary housing? Are you attending school, helping your company train employees at a new branch, or visiting family in another state? Whatever the reason, your location will be essential to consider so you can get to and from wherever you need to be while you're staying there.

Access to Reliable Internet

Reliable internet is essential if you need it for work, school, or keeping in touch with people. Unfortunately, many places around the world don't offer reliable internet. If it's a must-have for you, make sure the temporary housing unit you rent offers it. 

On-Site Laundry

You might not want to bring your laundry to a laundromat every time you clean your clothes, and some locations might not even have one nearby. If it's a concern for you, consider choosing a temporary rental with either a washer and dryer in the unit or on-site. Having clean clothes is essential to feeling happy and comfortable when you're away from home. 

A Private Bathroom

Some temporary housing rentals may not have a bathroom inside each unit and will instead have community bathrooms that tenants share. Most people don't have a problem with it, but if you prefer a private bathroom, ask about it, so there's no misunderstanding. If you have no preference, you can save a little money by finding a place with a community bathroom.

A Kitchen

Many temporary housing rentals will have a kitchenette rather than a full kitchen. It might have a microwave, a burner, a mini-fridge, etc. If you want a full kitchen, you will have to specify that request to be sure the place you rent has one.

Making The Most Of Your Hotel Experience

When I started traveling a lot for work, I assumed that the best thing about any hotel was the pool. I would go out to dinner someplace close to the hotel every night, and simply watch TV or sit in the hot tub. However, after talking with a friend of mine, I discovered that hotels offer a lot more than I thought. My friend asked me to try room service and to rent movies in my hotel room. It was incredible to learn all of the tricks to staying in a hotel, and I want to share them with you. As you travel, remember the articles on this website.
