We are moving to RI for a new job in Bristol in the summer, and are thinking of renting before buying a house.
1. There seem to be very few apartments for rent in Barrington. Does anyone know the names of some decent apartments in Barrington, Bristol, or nearby?
2. Is a short-term lease (6m or 9 m) a realistic expectation or is it normally have to be a year-lease? We want to buy a house after settling down and learning more about the area.
3. What's the best time to buy a house? I would assume most people move there in the summer, and therefore summer would be a bad time to buy. We'd rather wait till winter or spring. Does it like a good strategy?
