I thought the standard here was to find short term lodging (like those pay-by-the-week suites) and find permanent digs once you're there.
This is the first time getting a job outside of my home town, so I'm not entirely sure what the most appropriate process is for this.
I'd find some place temporary until you can have a look around. Have you looked on Air B&B
I'd not put much money down on a place site unseen.
Good luck - enjoy the adventure.
Congrats on the new job.
I'd never heard of air b&b before, thanks for the link.
I guess I'll try and find some cheap place to stay for a bit when I first get up there. Hopefully it doesn't take long to find a more permanent home. Thanks for the tips, guys.
