Chris Lester, Renter in 32822

Finding it very hard to find short term leases in Orlando.

Asked by Chris Lester, 32822 Wed Aug 15, 2012


I just moved down to Orlando from the DC area and needless to say, its like paradise down here compared to our nation's capital.

Anyways, I just moved down here to take a job that may or maynot exist in Jan 1st, 2013. As a result, I'm looking for a short term lease in the 32822 area code (or there abouts). I'm finding this almost impossible. Currently, my company is paying for me to live in a hotel but that'll only last so long so I'm trying to be proactive here.

The shortest rent I seem to be able to find is a 7 month lease. I understand that is because they passed a law to try to protect the hotels (lol) around Disney so any lease less than 7 months is subject to a 12.5% tax.

Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm not looking for anything supper fancy. It would be nice to find something furnished but if not, no big deal. I'd like to stay within 20 minutes of the airport. This has been a frustrating endeavor.

Your best bet is to check the short-term rental area near Disney World. Most of the short-term rentals will be near the attractions, i.e., Kissimmee tourist corridor, etc.
