Extended stays might be the way to go for a bit if you don't have anyone to stay with. Good luck! This is a great place to live! I know it will work out for you!!! :)
On my first day of work, I received a letter stating my expected pay/salary, which I was able to give to show my proof of income. So, within one week, I had a new job and a new home. I hope that helped you some. Let me know if I can help with any other questions or concerns you have about being new to the area.
