1. Identify your needsDo not rush into rental advertisements until you have determined very precisely what your expectations and constraints are.
- How many rooms do you need (annual rental) or sleeping arrangements (seasonal rental)?
- What surface do you want?
- What services are for you non-negotiable (air conditioning, lift and parking for example)?
- What geographical area (distance from amenities or the beach)?
- What is the maximum rent?
2. Search enginesAvailable on agency sites and major real estate portals on the Web, search engines match the available offer with the criteria you give them. Easy to use, they allow you to obtain the list of rental properties that suit you in one click. Efficient and instantaneous, the search engines of the Web give you the possibility to sort through an abundant offer without leaving your home!
3. The analysis of the ads in 6 pointsReal estate advertisements normally obey a standardization allowing their comparison. If real estate agencies respect this legal framework, this is unfortunately not always the case with advertisements published by individuals. When the information provided is not sufficiently precise, contact the lessor. To decide, you must have a clear idea of the following points:
- • the type of property (townhouse, pavilion, villa, town apartment, apartment in divided house, apartment in residence, etc.);
- • the precise location: “close to” does not mean much! Demand the precise location of the proposed property in relation to your center of interest (the city center and its amenities or the beach for example);
- • the number of rooms (T1, T2, etc.) includes living room and bedrooms. The kitchen, bathrooms, toilets and other technical rooms are not taken into account;
- • the living area;
- • the type of heating and the state of any air conditioning;
- • equipment for a furnished property.
