Could someone advise me where is the best temp apartment renting in Raleigh Traiangle Park area (Raleigh-Durham) in North Carolina. I will be working at one of the company at the triangle park for 3 months and would like to know where to stay and how the transportation to get to work everyday. I ask is because not everything is reimbursed by company, so I need to be expense-sensitive. Thank you in advance. Laura

Unless you happen across a short-term sublet on Craigslist, 3 month rentals or month to month tend to be pretty expensive. Public transportation isn't all that great either. I believe there is TTA, and if you happen to live along the bus line, it may work.

As far as transportation goes, my former roommate was here on a 5 month project, bought a $600 car that he later sold for about the same amount of money.

Hi Jinxor

Thank you very much for your reply. I happen to come across this website Craigslist by google. I also went through the pages. One thing is that those apartments/sublease are not fully furnished. Because I am will be temp staying for 3-months, I am looking for fully furnished. I will go through more on the page to see if any availabilities.

In terms of transportation, is it expensive to rent a car in Raleigh? If yes, I may consider doing what your former roomate did to by a cheap car and resell it later.

If you happen to know anyone who has such information, it is greatly appreciated if you could let me know. Moderator cut: removed

Thank you

Laura

Sublets are usually furnished but hard to synchronize exact timing. Corporate apartments can be furnished or unfurnished. I've seen Renting a room in someone's house is usually furnished. Another option is Extended Stay America Hotels. I have colleagues that have stayed in one of those type of hotels, usually for 8-10 week assignments.

Very ballpark, but I priced the cost of renting a car at one point within the last two years and it was quite expensive. Renting a compact car can run minimally $20 a day and car rentals vary widely. If you do not have insurance and need to purchase through them, expect to pay an additional $10 a day or so.

Good luck!
Daniel

Renting furniture for a few months is easy. Many short term places will arrange it for you, or you can simply contact a furniture rental firm like Aaron's or Cort.

Almost no reliable public transit here unless you only work traditional 9-5 M-F type hours.

Thank you both very much, I am trying to contact a few agents to see apartment availabilities, with possibilities to rent furnitures from rental place.

Regarding to transportation, I may have to rent a car before I can buy a used car over there.

Good luck to me!

Plenty of cars to choose from. It's a buyer's market.
