The time has finally come. Retirement is just around the corner. Our home is listed. Our plan is to come down to the Treasure Coast and rent a house while we look for our retirement home. Our hope is to find it within a three-month period. My question: Is it possible to rent a house for that short a duration? If not, what other options are available? Thanks for your help.

Default Short term rentals

I just went thru that and I had an impossible time renting for a short period and finally gave up. Short term is perceived as vacation rentals and as such are furnished and expensive. Be prepared to spend $2000/month; it is just as difficult finding 6 months rentals for a reasonable price. Seems like there are plenty of houses scooped up by speculators that gave them a quickie paint job and now are renting them since they got cheap mortgages. You will have to rent for a year.

That's what I feared.

PGA Village has short term rentals. It was furnished and I paid 1500.00 a month for a one bedroom. My realtor recommended it.

You may want to try calling some hotels in the area and see if they would give you some sort of long-term deal. I'm sure they'd be willing to give you a great rate in turn for a room guaranteed to be filled.

If you're looking to get a really great deal on a short sale or a foreclosure, it's going to take damn near a year anyway.....

Ok.. short term rentals can be hazardous to your health --- there is a State Sales tax -- aka Bed Tax on any rental less than 6 months and one day. Last I looked it was 11% but that may have changed and you pay it UP FRONT.

Lots of people don't realize this.. so be aware now.

I DO have rentals that will do 3 months... furnished.. right now.. OFF SEASON....that I can find for you. Maybe..unfurnished. Once it gets November .. rates go SKY HIGH.
