If you are relocating to a new area and/or building your own home, you may find yourself displaced for a period of time. Temporary accommodation may be exactly what you need. However, before you move, definitely do the research and preparations ahead of time. First, evaluate you needs. How long will I need temporary accommodation? The longer the stay, you may be able to negotiate a better rate. Do you have a family with school-aged children? If so, the location will be very important in making your decision. Do you have a pet? If so, what kind of pet and will the rental accept pets. Some rentals come fully furnished including dishes, pots and pans and linens. If you only have access to your clothing, this may be just the right option for you. Some also come with cleaning services. Be aware that the more you need, the more you will pay.
