Need ideas for temp housing before we buy

Asked by Jena, Indianapolis, IN Mon Jul 22, 2013

We are moving from Iowa to Indy. Job is located near carmel. We seek housing that would be month to month or something like a 3 month lease. We do not have time to search for a Home at this time. But we desire to buy asap. What ideas would recommend for us?

Jena. There are some apartments on the Northwest side of Indy called Pickwick Farms that do short-term leases with furnished apartments. I have some other out-of-state customers that are considering this as their temporary accommodations. There are also some homes in the Zionsville area that are often rented for short-terms like 3 to 6 months, but it would all depend on their availability.

There are also places like "Residence Inn" and some other hotels that cater to business travelers who have to stay longer periods, but those can be more costly.

I responded to your other question, so I won't bore you with all the previous verbage. I'd be happy to answer any questions you may have about Indianapolis, Carmel or the surrounding areas.

I recommend that you check out long-stay furnished lodging that is paid monthly or weekly. Email me and I'll send you some possibilities. The chances of finding a lease as short as 3 month is near impossible.
