Congrats!

A suggestion regarding the move:  can you move into a hotel for the first month?  That way you can look around the area for a bit before you end up stuck in a lease for a place that looks good on paper but is actually terrible to live in.

Congrats!!!

Seconding the hotel living idea even if it's just a couple weeks. If you don't know the area well, taking the first available apartment without being able to view the neighborhood at different times/days could be problematic...especially if they want a lease of several months to a year. We've done mulitple extended stays in hotels during the moving process, it's worked out well.

Yay!!!  Congrats!  And the blue is really pretty too.

I'm also on the bandwagon of extended stay hotels.  They're really nice and feel cozy.  Plus, you can focus on the packing for those two weeks instead of packing and finding a place.  Less stress.

Congratulations!

As for the apartment, the hotel sounds like an excellent idea. Or you could make phone calls during your lunch hour. You could also try to find a real estate office that handles rentals--they may not cover the large complexes, but would handle rentals for smaller landlords, who maybe have one or two buildings with 2-6 apartments each. They can show you a variety of available apartments in a few hours.

I like the first outfit better, looks more put together.  And I used to be a government worker.

YAY!!!

As for finding an apartment.  Email is your friend.  I moved from Chicago to DC via email.  I made a few phone calls, but I didn't see any apartments until I had actually made the move.

Yep, I moved from LA to DC without flying out at all to visit. Check out Zillow.

Congrats!
