Welcome to Wisconsin. What area of WI are you looking to relocate to? This is a great house in a very safe, spacious country setting with neighbors on a dead-end cul de sac - so very little traffic. We would consider short term and we're about 20 minutes south of UW-Madison.
Sure, there are places that accept short term leases. Are you looking to buy after the lease is up? Would a rent-to-own arrangement be beneficial to you? Give me a call at (608) 770-2144 or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to get a list of homes in the Madison area.
