Short term living options?

So, we are possibly on the verge of selling our home (YAY!!!!)  If it finally happens, we will need somewhere to live for June and July while our new home is being completed.  Anyone know of locations that would rent to us for just two months?  Ideally would like to stay in Waukee or close to that side of down because of son's daycare location.  I've put an ad on CL to see if there is anyone looking to sublet and I'm going to do some calling around to apartments.  Just wanted to see if anyone had any other ideas or had been through the same thing.  (And no, we're not going to live with family for two months....my sanity is worth the price vs saving $$!)

Re: Short term living options?

  • No suggestions but I'm super stoked for you!!!!  I hope everything works out!
  • I'm pretty sure most apartment complexes would rent to you monthly, it might be more expensive than if you signed a long lease.

    And congrats :)

    Yeah not so much. We were hard pressed to find a 6 month lease. Most places want a year. 

    We rented a townhome in Johnston. If you get into a bind I can look up his email address in case he hasn't rented it out right now. 

    Nobody said life would be easy. Just that it would be worth it.

  • Something else you might consider if you only need a place to live for 2 months.  Put all of the furniture in storage or leave with family members at their houses and then stay at a hotel for that time period.  There are some extended day places around town that book by the week/month and it ends up being not much more than an apartment.  A little bit small but you get a pool and housekeeping.

    Yeah.....looked into that and it's about $600 or more/month than what we currently pay for our mortgage.  Cheapest I could find was $45/day.

    Hmmm...I know you said you wanted to be near Waukee but there's the Value Place extended stay hotel in Ankeny just north of I-80 that has rates as low as $209/week.  That's $836/month (actually less than our mortgage payment).  I'm really not familiar with the extended stay options here in town I just thought I'd throw it out there because I had seen the advertised weekly rates at some of the hotels as we drive by on the interstate.  Good luck with your search!
