Finding a new place to live can be stressful. The first time we had to do it we hired someone to take us around a village to look for one. Our search turned out to be futile – we didn’t find anything that is good enough for us or one that fits our budget. It was a complete waste of time I tell you. I think we did all the things that we shouldn’t do the first time we did it. Anyway, the next day we were able to find one with the help of my hubby’s colleague. He referred us around the area where he lives so we searched there and sure enough in less than an hour we found one.
When looking for an apartment it is best if you get the help of friends or acquaintances who are familiar with the area where you’re planning to live. If you don’t know anyone familiar with the area your next best choice is to search online and compile a list of potential apartments you can visit. By doing this, you can systematically visit each to compare and not end up running a wild goose chase like we did.
