A C - I think you will find folks more accomadating if you actually DO something. You started asking about leases last January and recevied 4 pages of replies. Now you are asking for the same info. I fully support your intentions, but you are dragging this out a bit. Since you are self-employeed and obviously somewhat disposable cash heavy (or you should not be headed to SP), grab a flight, spend a week and walk the streets. You should have a rental place set-up and ready before your return flight. Just remember they need actual dates! Not maybe's.
I just don't want to see you start out on the wrong foot when you actually move. Good Luck
Yeah it def took me longer to get my stuff in the states all tied off. But i WILL be landing mid January, having a going away party for my birthday the first week of it. Then flying off
! Already have a few condos/houses picked out from random people (some from that original post). Im very much looking forward to it. And yes I will for sure be there and settled in by march!
