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"?
