IF you atrying to save money in the process..may be smart to call ahead to a Realtor. Most of the larger offices ReMax, C-21, Prudential have rental departments. Realtors do handle rentals and depending on what city, some have mimimal lease times. I would think that would be less expensive than an extend a stay. Understand there is not much revenue in the rental business for Realtors from seller fees, and the Realtor hopes for future business from the parties.

Where are you looking to buy a home? We stayed in a place called Americinn in Sarasota and the price was only $50.00 per night. That was in the wintertime too. That was also 10 years ago and we found our home and here we are today!

In Florida you may find motels that rent for the week and for the month, that may be an option. research on the Internet in the city that you are looking for. and see what they have there. No offense FLboy but 50 a night is quite expensive. especially if you are going to stay for a month or so.

DH worked out of town during the week for 10 years and he stayed at Candlewood Suites. Not fancy but part of the Holiday Inn network. He had an extended stay rate that was very reasonable. He had a full size refrigerator/freezer, 2 burner stove top, microwave, coffee maker, dishwasher, etc in the kitchen. The cabinets were stocked with a pot, skillet, couple of plates, cups, flat ware, etc. A table/work area and a recliner in the living area. Maid service was only once or twice a week - so you did not feel like you were in a hotel.

You can negotiate the rate with them. Call the location directly and talk with them. They are not in every city, but he stayed for several years in one location in Huntsville, AL, then he had shorter stays in St. L*ouis, Durham, NC and Clearwater Fl.
