I am moving to Washington in September, but I am coming in early in August to look for an apartment that starts in September 1st. I need a place to stay in August; however, I am not sure how much time I need to find an apartment in WA. I found an apartment for the month of August for which will give me a month to look for an apartment but my budget will not allow me to rent a car (renting a car for a month is too expensive) So I will have to take the train or buss.
My second option is to rent an Airbnb and a car for two weeks (assuming that it takes me two weeks to find an apartment) both equal the same price as staying for the apartment mentioned above for the month. Which one do you think is the best option?
Both options are the same price but the 1st option does not include a car and is a longer stay (30 days) and the second option does include a car but it is a shorter stay (2 weeks)
