Some Things to Consider

01. Timeframe

Rental service should be initiated 1 to 2 months ahead of the planned start of contract date. ​Most landlords do not make agreements more than 2 months in advance. There is a lot of demand in the market, most offers work on a “ready to move in” basis

03. Lifestyle

  • ​Do you often participate in cultural activities? 

  • Do you enjoy having an active community around you? 

  • Do you eat out frequently? Practice a sport? Have an indispensable hobby?

  • Want to support local businesses? 

  • Is energy important? Any Spiritual, Religious or Holistic needs? 

02. Budget 

We prioritize making the most of our client's budget, so we provide market advisory. If your budget is too high or low for the market in the area, etc. We ask our client's budget for reference and work with it accordingly.

04. Transportation needs

  • Is walkability important for you?

  • Planning on having a car?

  • Want to be close to an airport?

  • Want a city with a good public transportation network?

  • Metro? Train? Bus? Uber? Require any of these to be in proximity?

  • Are there things you require to be in a 15-min radius?
