I would much rather see you rent in a complex where each of the units are owned and some of them rented out by the individual owners. These complexes tend to be far better maintained, cleaner and less overpopulated.
Just last summer I helped a nice couple move to NJ after the husband got a job. He was traveling back and forth from NY until we got them into a really nice rental.
