House Hunting

Housing probably induces the biggest headache in the process of relocation, so we've put together a few house hunting tips to help ease your pain.

Property Listing Apps

It's common for homeowners and landlords to list their properties directly on property listing apps to save on traditional agent fees. The vast swathes of budget-friendly listings available, site language options and cross-platform accessibilities make these platforms the preferred way of house-searching for Hongkongers and expats alike.

Premium house-searching services

On the more premium side, there are agencies and platforms that offer curation of apartments, houses and mansions from certified developers and sellers. While pricey, their expertise will sort your mid to long term accommodation out in no time. You can discern these premium housing sites from the rest easily: look for listings of serviced apartments and new luxury homes. Agent fees can be hefty, but the price of convenience may well be worth paying if you end up finding the home of your dreams.

There are Facebook communities with plenty of active listings too, but do your due diligence and never, ever skip the home tour!
