How to find a flat in Milan

They say, looking for a flat is a full time job. Well it is true, especially if you are not in the city to check all aspects regarding this process.

If you are not in Milan there are different ways to find an accommodation. Each of them has different tricky aspects people usually don’t think about.

Let’s see some of them:

Real estate agencies

a) they are not third parties: they will offer you their clients’ flats despite of flats’ conditions, location, landlords

b) they are expensive: they will charge you one month of rent

c) they are not flexible: they ask you to rent a flat for more than 1 year, usually they ask for a 4+4 contract (4 years + 4 years)

d) Communication problems: lots of times they do not speak english so it is a source of missunderstandings

Landlord / Tenants

a) Some times they are not real person: as usually they are found online (facebook or other websites) you cannot be sure there is a real person behind a facebook profile or enail contact

b) Some times their flat does not exist: when you arrive you could find no one waiting for you in front of the flat

c) Sending money in advance: usually they ask you about sending the deposit before your arrival with the risk of losing that money

d) The virtual offer is wide different than reality: quite often, as not a third party, they lie on the real condition of flat, room or area

f) Communication problems: lots of times they do not speak english so it is a source of misunderstanding

Find a place by yourself once you arrive in Milan

a) Stressful and time consuming: and you should be focused on the main reason of your moving, university and job, and enjoy your first days in Milan

b) Unpleasant and exensive: as you need to book an Hostel or an Airbnb room meanwhile you find your accommodation

c) Risk of making wrong choises: as you are new in Milan, you don’t know very well locations especially about public transport and safety of the area

d) Communication problems: lots of times they do not speak english so it is a source of misunderstanding
