Although I'd prefer to just move down to SA & find a permanent landing spot (so we don't have to move twice!!), it seems like renting is recommended until we get to know the area. We'd be looking for a month-to-month (or short-term) lease, 3 bedrooms, dog-friendly, NW side of town. Anybody know of anything like that, or of a website that has rental postings?

Thanks.

I believe that some apartments list themselves as corparate housing and are month to month. I believe the cost is a little higher than the normal lease might be.

I know a nurse that is living in the apartments behind Walmart at Culebra and 1604 and got a 6 month lease if that is a short enough time you might consider it an option...but I have no idea about the animal thing.

Good Luck!!!! Know it is trying to move...boy do I know about that. One of the BENEFITS of finally retiring from the military is being able to spring clean vs move!

There are free apartment hunting services in town. I know of one with a storefront on the NB I-10 access road between Wurzbach and Huebner that covers the NW area.

You can find it, but you're going to pay for it. Month to month is expensive. Especially considering most leases are up in Jan and July, so landlords probably don't want to settle for a month-to-month renter in January, since they'll most likely be able to wait a big and get a 1 year lease. It'll just be a lot more expensive. If you're using a Realtor for a home, they'll be able to help you with a rental as well.

Go with an apartment locator. When we sold our home, and our new one was being built, an apt. locator found us an apartment complex that allowed you to break the lease if you signed a mortgage. (Lodge at Sonterra)

Realtor.com also has rentals listings (to the right of the Find a Home tab). This could give you an idea of rentals in your price range, plus will tell you what real estate offices handle the rentals - sometimes the offices have rentals they do not show online.
Good luck.
