Finding a Short – Term Rental While Waiting for Your New Home to Be Move-In Ready

By admin on 6 May 15 Packers & Movers

Imagine that you have just purchased your dream home; all the contracts are signed; and you have already sold your old home.But whatif your new home is not yet ready for move in? Whether you are making renovations or the previous tenants have yet to move out, finding temporary living arrangements on short notice can be stressful, especially if you have a large family.

Prior to relocating into a temporary rental space, it is first necessary to consider which living arrangement would best benefit you and/or your family. For example, a large family with a considerable amount of disposable income may be able to afford to stay at a hotel and place all of their furniture and other property into storage.

What are your Options for Temporary Living Arrangements when Moving?

1. Hotel/Motel + Storage

Staying at a hotel, while keeping all of your items in storage, is definitely one of the most comfortable options for large families who require more space or families who are only staying for a couple of days. Unfortunately, luxury comes at a price; staying at a hotel is the most expensive option.

2. Sublet

If you are looking to stay in a big city, like Vancouver, it may be difficult to find an empty apartment on such short notice. Fortunately, websites like Craigslist, Kijiji, and other rental sites have plenty of temporary living and sublet options that are very affordable.

3. Stay with Family

If your family is offering to accommodate you while your home is being readied for move-in, it may be wise to take advantage of their hospitality. This way you will be able to spend time with the ones you love and save yourself from having to spend money on unnecessary expenses.
