Moving to Paris: Finding the Right Neighborhood and Apartment With Lodgis

Moving to Paris: Finding the Right Neighborhood and Apartment With Lodgis
The big day has arrived: Paris it is! You already picture yourself living there and while you start smiling and jumping everywhere, the panic invades your heart: “Where should I settle down? Which district? How much is it going to cost? Do I have any guarantee? How can I be sure that I choose the right apartment? My French isn’t that good, will it be okay?”. Take a deep breath and relax while LODGIS answers all these questions for you. Where? Choose an Arrondissement that Suits Your Profile First of all, you should keep in mind that Paris is a multifaceted city, which means that whether you are a family, a student or a professional, you will find your place. Paris is divided in 20 different districts called “arrondissements” and each one of them has its own specificity in terms of atmosphere, budget, population and activities. Lodgis has apartments in every district of Paris (as well as in the business district, “la Defense”) in order to suit the profile of each one of our clients. If the big families tend to prefer the west, the smaller ones tend to prefer the east but more specifically some people choose their neighborhoods because they want to be close to their work place or their university. How much? Settle Down Without Going Bankrupt! The Heart of Paris is very famous for its Museums and the international exposure of its touristic places which makes it quite expensive while so many other districts located in what we call “the second ring” have so many treasures to offer too. On an other stand point some places can be more expensive than others for different reasons. Beyond the location’s reason, it can be related to the apartment’s surface area. Once again you have no reason to panic, Lodgis has advisers living all around Paris and who are specialized in these kind of matters. The price range and your preferences (long-term rental, family apartment, duplex, etc) will be discussed with you directly and added to your profile in order to make sure that you don’t spend all your money right when you arrive in the Capital! Do I have any guarantees? The Pros of a Real Estate Agency! Settling abroad isn’t an easy step to take, obviously feeling safe and secure should come along with it.
