I'd like to hear from others who have moved somewhere new and lived in temporary housing initially. Do you think it's better to get a place that's month to month or commit to a 3 month lease somewhere? I found 2 places - one's a little nicer and a little more expensive but requires a 3 month lease which I am a little reluctant to do since I was thinking after a month I'd try and find permanent housing. But maybe after stress of moving, living somewhere for 3 months will be ok and I can look for permanent housing after that...any opinions? Thanks in advance.

Do you have a job lined up in advance?

If so... then settle in somewhere and focus on doing the job.
If not.... then don't commit to anything until you KNOW where the job is.

No I don't have a job or intend to get one right off the bat (semi-retired). I will need a pt job but can take a month or more to find one. But I suppose it might be better to remain flexible in case I want to live near the job I get. Thanks....
