Short term housing rentals?

key opening doorOn his way out, Will emails:

I am selling my house and I will soon be without a place to live. I will be leaving the capital district in 5 months or so, so until then I'm looking for a decent place with a month to month lease. Can the readers offer any suggestions?

The Capital Region doesn't appear to have a thriving sublet market -- but it seems like there should be something out there for this type of situation.

Got a suggestion for Will? Please share!

Been using AirBNB a lot lately, so give it a shot:

Unfortunately that's a lot of results for *around* Albany.
Maybe try a specific neighborhood, as such:

Not sure if it would be too far for you, but I think Sheridan Village in Niskayuna do a month-by-month or a short term lease.

The University Club of Albany offers rooms for $400 a month. Linen survive is included. They have 25 rooms and I think 2 are free now. Most residents are short-termers associated with the legislative session. Does 24 hour access to a bowling alley and billiard room classify it as "decent"?

Is there a volunteer group of any kind that clears sidewalks, crosswalks, and bus stops after storms for people who can't do it themselves or places that don't have anyone to look after it? I'd be interested and willing to pitch in, provided I'm not giving anyone a free ride on their civic duty.
