I've scoured craigslist and zillow.com is there anything out there within a 40inure commute to lawrence, ma? We hate having to stay in an extended stay motel for 2k per month. We do have 3 small dogs.

Some of the bigger apt.complexes allow pets, but I don't know about 3. They'll also want a lease. They typically have a web presence but not a zillow or CL presence. These will be for owner owned condos and houses which normally want a one year lease.

Found these things out when we moved last year to the area.

How many months do you need? Would a summer sublet do? What about renting an RV and parking it onsite?

Last year I found they wanted 6 months minimum. I think sublets might be tough, and they're likely to be in craigslist too.

Try a local realtor. Google house-sitting or pet-sitting gigs. If there is a college nearby, contact their housing office; they may have summer rentals available.

A realtor, even a local one, would list on zillow. OP has already looked there.

Well, one of my neighbors is going major reconstruction on his property. The house was knocked down and he's converting the three car garage into a dwelling. He seems to do just fine living on the property in a large RV (the size of a school bus).

Well... a couple bought the farmhouse and barn that we made an offer on 5 years ago. At the time, the buildings were still salvageable. However the roofs had all failed and when the property finally got sold 3 years after that, there was rot and termites everywhere. (BTW the listing agent is such a piece of sh*t. He refused to forward our offer to the absentee owner, and when it sold, it sold for less than our offer.) Anyway, once the 1810 farmhouse and barn was knocked down, all that was left was the 3 car garage built in the 1970's on a really nice thick concrete slab. However, the property is on 12.5 cleared acres of land. The owners plan to turn it into a horse farm.

So what happened to the OP?? Are you their designated spokesperson and manager of their thread? lol

Not all real estate agents and brokerages use Zillow.

OP, perhaps just find a place with a year-long lease and count the unused months as a cost you have to eat. Might be less of a loss than paying to stay where you are. Alternatively, after summer there will be a lot of seasonal rentals showing up on Craigslist.
