NIH provides excellent training opportunities for vast and diverse set of nationals. These significant number of intramural trainees move in near vicinity of NIH to commute back and forth. Most of them would be around for 2 to 5 years least and move ahead with their career plans. Depending on choice, trainees prefer to look out for moving sales to setup their apartments. If each big/small organization like NIH sets up a website/ List-serve for "Move in/out" it would make this hunt lot easier and local.
There would be fewer printouts hung around campus at different notice boards. And most importantly would be a promotion for reduce and reuse.
The choice of posts can be moderated as any other list serve/website and be specific to selling out furniture, appliances, vehicles or even renting out apartments.
This list-serve can be a hassle free solution to all those in settling-in and moving-out process.
