Whether between moves, taking an extended vacation or on a business assignment, there are many circumstances requiring short-term apartments in Boston. If your lifestyle requires your living arrangements to stay flexible, a short-term rental in Boston makes sense. From Back Bay to Beacon Hill, there are plenty of sought-after neighborhoods and apartments ripe for the picking.

Short term rentals are particularly helpful for those moving from out-of-state or from out-of-the-country. They offer a ready-to-go-home with a flexible end date while you focus on getting settled, or perhaps continue your own house hunt. If you’re coming from abroad, it’s a good idea to get advice from an immigration lawyer before making the big move.
