what would be the best bet?

renting from someone or going through an agency?

what are the best parts of STT to be that are good but economical at first until a better cushion is made?

not looking for fancy or expensive...hopefully furnished tho...i live frugally and will have plenty to be comfy til i can get a job

how soon before i move should i visit to find a place?

are there places to stay besides hotels that charge by the day or week?

Not much posted there this exact moment, but sometimes there are quite a few rentals listed on craigslist. May have to do with being off season right now. Some of what is avaialble is short term, so they can go for the kill, $2-3k/week during peak season. Might get you time to find something else, or get employed or what have you.

Your best bet is to look at everything whether its a ad in the paper or a rental listing a rental broker has. Generally the paper has the most listings as most don't need a rental agent to rent their apartments.

I vote with Hiya--look at housing offerings from every source, realtors, the paper, craigslist. You never know where you'll find what you need.

Best,

Don't rule out Craigslist beause of a few bad apples. Just don't fall for some scam. For instance, if it's way less than most you've found, and it's gorgeous, with lots of extras, which you haven't found on other ads, pay attention! Get to know the landlord/agent over the phone and via email. Do I even need to say....don't send money to a foreign country, wire it into a bank account or send a money order to a post office box. Actually....we all have post office boxes, so maybe overlook that one. I offer PayPal as an option for my rentals.

Ask for references! The landlord probably will.
