Rochester is a pretty easy place to find a place to live. From squatting in abandoned buildings, to buying 19th century homes in perfect museum condition, there are all sorts of options to choose from.

Short Term Rental or Hotels

Since Rochester is about an hour from Buffalo, Syracuse, and Corning, it's not a bad place to stay for a few months if you are looking for a job in Central or Western NY. Rochester has a lot of 'extended stay' hotels, and other options. Some landlords (such as Pleasant Park Properties) are willing to offer short-term stay rentals in some situations. Ant Hill Cooperative has been known to be flexible about 3-6 month rental situations, if Cooperatives are your style. * [WWW]Belmont Suites is a locally owned company that offers short term and furnished apartments. They are pet friendly and accept all major credit cards.

Apartment Rental

Because Rochester has a lot of housing opening up as factory jobs move out, most who want to buy a house these days can find a bank willing to make a deal. Add to that the large college population (both students, and TA's, ajunct faculity, and advisors), and you have a city with all levels of apartments available pretty much year round.
