Survive Your Home Renovation or Relocation: Where to Stay in Houston

man in front of boxes

Looking for temporary housing during a home renovation or relocation? Consider extended-stay hotels, vacation rentals, corporate housing, staying with friends or family, or temporary housing services.

From home renovations to relocating and anything in between, life can be unpredictable. One minute, your home is your haven; the next, it’s an obstacle course of dust and noise. Or even worse, it’s uninhabitable due to flooding or other unforeseen circumstances.

Managing all the design ideas, repair estimates and renovation projects starts to feel like a second job. You’re spending your nights and weekends chasing contractors for all sorts of reasons.

For professionals relocating to Houston, you’re busy settling into a new company culture and learning your way around a new city. Looking for the home of your dreams becomes a project with a tight deadline.

If you find yourself in any of these situations, you may need to find somewhere else to stay for a while. And that’s where Lodgeur comes in, with professionally-designed, stylish and comfortable furnished apartments in the heart of the city.

Home renovations and relocations can be stressful and disruptive. If you’re in the midst of a home improvement project or moving to a new location, finding the right temporary accommodation can make all the difference in ensuring a smooth and comfortable transition.

Housing Options During Renovation or Relocation

Here are some options to consider when looking for temporary housing during a home renovation or relocation:

Extended Stay Hotels

Many hotels offer extended-stay options with amenities like mini fridges, microwaves and laundromats. If you plan to cook a meal during your stay, this won’t be your first choice.

Vacation Rentals

Websites like Airbnb and VRBO offer vacation rental properties that can be rented for longer periods. These often offer more space and flexibility than hotels and can be a good option if you don’t mind paying the fees. Expect to pay 10.6% to Airbnb for long-term stays booked through its platform.

Corporate Housing

Corporate housing providers offer fully-furnished apartments and homes with short-term lease options. These can be a good option if you know your end date won’t change and you don’t mind paperwork and phone calls.

Friends or Family

If you have friends or family in the area, consider asking if you can stay with them during your renovation or relocation. This can be a cost-effective option, but gets old quickly.

When looking for temporary housing during a home renovation or relocation, it’s important to consider your budget, location, and specific needs. Research your options and book in advance to ensure you have a comfortable and stress-free transition.

Extend stay as needed in Lodgeur serviced apartments

Lodgeur offers flexible and furnished short-term rentals in Houston, so you can stay for as long as you need without the worry of committing to a lengthy lease, or dealing with the extra fees associated with booking sites.

With Lodgeur’s dozens of serviced apartments based centrally in Houston, you can be certain to find just the right one for yourself and your family. Unlike Airbnb-style bookings which require a strict end date with other potential reservations blocking any extension of stay, our furnished apartments provide the convenience and assurance that comes with extended stays, without uncertainties.

We understand that you may need temporary housing for an unknown amount of time due to home renovations, relocating to Houston, or even insurance-related issues. That’s why we strive to make your experience seamless, by not requiring a fixed term and allowing you to extend your stay in our Houston serviced apartments as needed.
