I'm panicking! Long story short but it looks like our house will sell - 6 months sooner than planned! Have checked extended stays and corporate apts and they are outrageous! Any suggestions for short-term furnished places will be greatly appreciated. Oh, in the West Knoxville-Oak Ridge, Clinton areas. Thanks.

I remember coming across this site when looking for apartments - they provide short term furnished housing.

Check craigs list for sublets.
knoxville sublets & temporary classifieds - craigslist
You may also want a short term rental and furnish with rented furniture if you don't want to move all your stuff in. Lots of complexes will rent for six months.

Thanks, everyone. I hope we find ourselves in the same position, inave! It is a good kind of panic, right?

These links will come in handy.

Question Any leads on housing yet, inave?

Inave, I've been wondering how you have progresses with your temporary housing hunt. How you found anything?

Hope everything works out for you.

Hey, everyone, thanks for the responses. We were out of town this weekend visiting family and didn't find out for sure until about 9:00 Friday night that we had a "fer shore" contract! I have several places to call today so maybe something will turn up. My dear daughter and wonderful son-in-law are insisting that we move in with them but THAT will be a very last resort. I want them to keep being as dear and wonderful as they are now and I want THEM to think the same of US. Understand???!!! Thanks again. Will keep you posted.

Thumbs up Congratulations, inave.

Congratulations, inave. I am happy for you - especially in this housing market! Now, I hope a rental pops up just as quickly. Let us know how you make out.

I totally understand about the reluctance to move in with your daughter and her husband. The first 3 days are wonderful, then we become parents again!!!
