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"?

... Much of what makes the area special is the suburban and rural experience and public natural resources. If that stuff isn't really your thing, you're not an asshole, you just have personal tastes that don't mesh well with the region. That said, you do have to put in effort to like this area. It doesn't come to you; for better or worse, you have to seek it out. And that's not for everyone either. ...
