As I was living in another city before, it is little bit difficult to imagine the life here. I started to search houses online and went to a website where there are lots of apartment renting information. Here is the link – gz.58.com. From the website above, I found lot of studio resources and apartments available in Guangzhou. They are specially designed to fit the single white collars. Rooms are furnished with all the required furniture and cooking equipments. I took some photos which you can check below.
When I was searching for houses, I learned lot of things about how to find a good apartment or a studio. First need to check all the furniture inside carefully because some house owners think only about money and furnish the house with very low quality furniture. Just by a close look, you will find it easily. Second main thing is to know about landlord, whether he or she is good or not, how they deal with people. You can know about this by talking to the middle person. They can tell whether the landlord corporate happily with them or not.
I got to know that some landlords are very bad, especially local people. As they have keys, they check the place every week because they are afraid that you will make the place dirty or break something inside. Sometimes when house rent becomes high in the market, they tend to ask the renter to pay more without thinking about the agreement both parties made before and if you don’t pay, it will be a nightmare. They may take other potential renters to check the house and annoy your normal life. So it is very important to find a good landlord.
Third is you have to pay the consultant fee, usually 50% of the 1 month’s house rent. During my house searching in Guangzhou city, I found a very interesting thing. Landlords like to find female and single renters, because they think this will keep the house tidy. Men and married couples with kids are not very welcome. By the way, you can search for houses without having a middle person. This way is more cheaper even it is little bit difficult and time consuming.
