People need temporary housing for a number of reasons, moving city, relocating with a job, somewhere to stay while you’re finding your feet, or while something is being done to your existing home. Whatever the reason, Blu has a large range of temporary housing for you to choose from.
But before we get into the finding, let’s take a look at the basics.
Denver Temporary Housing Options
Temporary implies you will be living in the property for a short period of time until something else happens. Blu specializes in temporary housing for stays of over 30 days for just that purpose.
Typically, you have three options when staying somewhere for a little while, a hotel, with friends or temporary housing.
Hotels are great for vacations, they look after you, answer your every need and do what they can to make you feel welcome. You don’t have to do laundry, cook your own meals or even clean up. However, once the first week is up, that little room becomes more like a prison than a vacation.
Friends are awesome. They help you out, keep you company and won’t always charge you rent while you’re there. But you’re in their home, living by their rules and may even be in their way. Living together is a true test of any friendship, ask any married couple!
Staying with friends is okay for emergencies, but over a month? That could put a severe strain on relations.
Temporary housing is the ideal middle ground. It’s cheaper than a hotel, offers more in the way of space and freedom and won’t strain friendships quite as much as staying with a buddy can. You can still live there temporarily, still enjoy the time you’re away from home, but with all the comforts of home.
Considerations For Choosing Temporary Housing
As we mentioned, there are a number of reasons one might require temporary housing. Depending on that reasons, you’re going to have a few considerations to think over before choosing your temporary home.
- What type of property do you need?
- How large a property do you need?
- How long do you need it for?
- Where should it be?
- What amenities do you want?
- Do you need any extra services?
The type of property is more a choice than necessity, although it will be tied to where you’re planning on staying. Need to live downtown? You’re probably going to want an apartment. Want to live in the suburbs? A townhouse or single family home is more likely here.
How large your rental is depends on how many people you need to accommodate. Blu has relocated individuals and entire departments of dozens of people. We can find something for everyone.
How long will you be staying? That depends a lot on why you need the housing. If you’re relocating, it’s likely to be a few months while you find your feet. If you’re having work done, it will be however long the project is due to last, plus a few weeks to allow for slippage!
The benefits of temporary housing lend themselves well to the situations in which they are used. The freedom, flexibility and low cost is ideal when exploring new cities, coping with new realities, or working somewhere new.
