Besides the usual places like Craigslist and AirBnB, are there any other sites that y'all recommend looking? Thanks

I believe Oakwood apartments have monthly plans. There are a few around the area.

The one in Falls Church would probably do if none are closer:

Corporate Housing, Temporary Apartments, Government Lodging, Serviced Apartments and Extended Stay Housing | Oakwood

If you can visit the area before you move, you might drive around near Belvoir and look for houses with "For Rent" signs. Though most I'd guess are on CL, militarybyowner, etc. The advantage would be that you and the prospective landlord could size each other up in person (assuming the landlord isn't living far away), and you'd also see the property firsthand.

Cool MilitaryByOwner, Craigslist, and Next Door

I second militarybyowner.

To maximize your use of Craiglist post an ad with your circumstance, criteria, and your story. I'd suggest adding pictures to the post to help your future landlord connect with your story.

Do you know anyone in this area? If so, you could have a friend in the area post an add to Next Door. Next Door is a neighborhood oriented website designed for neighbors to hold conversations that are not viewed by individuals outside of their neighborhood.

You could instruct your local friends or relative to post similar information you would use from your Craigslist post above.

Goodluck with your search.

Another vote for militarybyowner. I found my current mo2mo rental on this site. It's way better than Craiglist or any of the other sites.
