You can find rental apartments and houses for sale, but it’s best to plan a little extra time to look around because people are coming to the area in droves. For that reason it's also a good idea to make sure you have copies of all your necessary paperwork to provide for your landlord or broker in the event you find a hidden gem right away. This includes Identification, proof of income, credit reports, references, bank statements, records for any pets you might have. Units are in such high demand here that you might find yourself in a bidding war, so be prepared to offer a little bit on top of the asking price if you're able to do so.
