I have an interview on November third. It would be ideal to rent a pied a terre for a month to three months. Anybody have any suggestions as to where I could begin to look for someone who might handle these kinds of properties?

Thanks.

You will likely find one of the extended stay hotels as cheap as anything you will be finding as most landlords will want at least 3 months plus they will keep your deposit.

Thank you.

Why will they keep my deposit? I mean . . .that's something you know up front, right?

Louisville has avoided the scourge of National Homebuilders who left millions of vinyl shacks in other communities. We do not have a large supply of empty homes or apartments. Vacancies on the east side and inside the 264 expressway are at an all time low. Nice apartment stock has been converted into condos in the past five years leaving such strong competition that property owners can demand year leases. I wouldn't offer 3 months and I wouldn't keep your deposit. Tom is right, though, and you should move towards extended stay hotels on Hurstbourne Parkway.

There's a housing shortage in Louisville? Yikes, maybe I better take my nursing license to a different state. Thanks for all the help.

There is plenty of newer housing on the fringes; i'm specifically talking about inside the main city limits. That is why I'd recommend an extended stay. I don't know the suburbs well enough to make a recommedation. Also, the sheer built up density and shortage of rentals should be construed as a great thing because of the energy that it creates.

Ahh, I see. That's different then.
I can't say I agree that density and shortages create energy . . . positive energy, that is. The burbs are fine by me. I've been quaint, creative, colorful, surprising, quirky and it's not all that.
Thanks, as always, for taking time to respond. It helps.

Lightbulb Short term Apartment rentals

Every large city, such as Louisville has what is called 'corporate housing'. Considered short term (month to month, usually under a year) and are usually fully furnished with some even including local phone, washer/ dryers, and utilities. Extended stay are very expensive when you consider other existing options. Most hotels, even the extended stays run at least $60 a night and that would run $2000/month with taxes.

You may want to check out this list of corporate housing in Louisville. Some of the locations are in the downtown area. Louisville Corporate Apartments - Temporary Furnished Apartments in Louisville by Oakwood

There is a need in larger cities to have corporate housing. Theatric industry, nursing industry, litigation, etc all have requirements for short term, furnished apartments.

Check out ValueInn (there is another one here that is very cheap as well same price I believe) it goes for 179 a week. Not bad considering all the utilities. They have sprung up all over the place.

Hey, thanks for all the tips on short-term options. I'll check out your link johnsonkk. As for the Value Place ---- YIKES. I spent 13 weeks in one and thought I'd die of misery. But, you're right, travelingguy --- you can't beat $179/week. I saved up a lot of cash on that assignment.
