A change is coming up? Tips for finding an apartment
Have you decided to change cities for a good job? Or maybe you’ve just been through a breakup and now you want to move into your own place? There are many reasons for looking for an apartment, and it varies greatly depending on your starting point.
Arriving first – where should you live?
Even though it is sometimes possible to find a good apartment from afar, this path is relatively risky. Some places look very nice on the photo, but then turn out to be very cramped or surrounded by noise. A good tip is to look for an apartment on the spot and not to go for the first offer that comes along. It is much better to rent an apartment that is already furnished, for example via apartment-service.ch, in order to go on a targeted search from there. The advantages are clear: You do not have to decide on an object, but book first the apartment for a manageable period, and then search. You don’t have to worry about cleaning etc., so you have more time for the search.
Always welcome: complete documents
Since it can often happen quickly to rent a dream property during the apartment search, you should keep your documents well packed in folders, complete – and without coffee stains or dog-ears – ready for the landlord-to-be. It’s best to get a certificate from the previous landlord stating that you are rent-debt free. Your bank should also provide you with a certificate that you are good with your finances. Possibly the new employment contract could be helpful, but also a guarantee often works wonders. The advertisement usually states exactly what documents need to be presented, Have copies of your liability insurance ready as well. This way you can distinguish yourself right away and increase your chances.
Why not? Rent to several
You can also make the apartment search a little more efficient by looking for fellow searchers via the Internet. The more people, the larger the area. There are even new contacts waiting for you at the end and certainly many a nice evening with conversations about God and the world.
