Mandy asks…

what apartment finder websites are the best to use?

im 18 and barely moving out of my parents home.

Administrator answers:

Apartments.com is good for apartment buildings. Also, check if your local newspaper has online classified listings. If you live in Ohio, Ohio.com has great listings that are compiled from tons of local newspapers. You can search by city and property amenities. Check to see if your state has a similar kind of website. Also, Rent.com is good. Some websites even offer you bonuses if you provide them with a copy of your lease after finding your apartment on their website.

Another option you can try is talking to a local realtor. It won’t cost you anything to use a realtor since their fee will be covered by the landlord. Some landlords list homes for rent with real estate agents and it could be a fast way of finding a bunch of options. This varies by region though. Some places, this is very popular to do and other places, it’s practically unheard of. You should look into it to see.

Happy hunting!

What does the m2 mean?

What does eur/m2 mean?

And for example what does:

Euro 124.000
or

Does that mean per month pay?

Administrator answers:

M/2 is square meters. They use square meters instead square feet when communicating room/home size.
Eur/m2 means Euro per square meter

Euro 124 means 124 Euros, that’s the currency used in Italy.

Yes, that is the rental per month. You can go to yahoo finance to figure out what a euro is worth. Recently, 1 euro has been worth between 1.50 and 1.60 USD (US Dollars)
