We moved yesterday to a new flat in Barcelona which we rented for one year. We are living now on street Pau Claris.
It’s been quite busy month searching and checking apartments in Barcelona. I was quite suprise that the prices has gone really a lot up since 2000. Also, finding a nice flat is really hard since they want rent apartments quite often with furniture. Usually furniture is 10 years old Ikea quality so it feels like theyput furniture in the flat so they could get better price.
Couple of tips for people who looks rentals in Barcelona
- Never pay for checking a flat, there are people who try to sell you piece of paper.
- Be careful when you rent from the owner, better use agent so if something happens…
- Change keys for door, you never know who was living there before
- Check neighbors, you may not want to live with football hooligans
