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"?

I am Dominican so I totally relate. I have thick curly hair (3c) and some of the hair professionals in this area do wonders with fine curly hair but have no idea what to do with thick (ethnic) hair. For the longest I had to take trips to NYC to get my hair done until I found Islenia (you can find her as "Hair by Islenia" in Facebook).She has been doing my hair for over 10 ears and she is excellent! ...
