There are some high end rentals in Lincoln, Concord and the immediate area. If you are hoping to rent under market value, properties that have been for sale for some time may be approachable. Most I live and work near the base -- if I can help please let me know.

I would agree that you might be better off to purchase something given that you know you will be stationed at Hanscom for 4-5 years. There is, however, the occasional "upper-end single family" rental. When they become available, they typically rent quickly. Since you are not moving out until June, I would recommend you start looking for rentals closer to that date (unless you are willing to pay rent for the months prior to your actual move.) I'd be glad to send you some representative listings so you can get a sense of what's available. Best wishes!
