One option is to have someone take care of your house. When I was 18-22 or so I often spent weeks living in friend's houses when they went on vacation. I got to get out of my parents' house, and the friend had someone to take care of their house, pets, and yard while they were gone. I liked doing it so much I never charged any money.
If you have college kids or older teenagers you trust not to trash the house or do parties, you might consider that option.
