    Hey folks -  I know this forum isn't super busy, but figure I'd put it out there just in case.

    I realize this is old, but I just accepted a contract as an OT down in Ocala.  Just wondering if you made it down there and what kind of housing you ended up finding.  

    Thanks in advance!

    You have to discuss all aspects of the contract up front and most important is what is included in the rate you were quoted. There is only x amount of money available for any particular contract and it can be split up any way you want. Housing...

    I've had good luck with tripping.com and craigslist.  Also, you might try contacting local real estate agents.  Sometimes they know someone with a room or garage apt. etc who are willing to rent for short term.  Hope this helps!
