Beijing Flats Rental Solutions-Shared Flats

Post time: 2019-01-13 09:18:30    Source: by Emilie LIU

With the deepening of Beijing's position as an international metropolis, more and more foreigners are attracted to work and study in Beijing. They will choose their own flats to live in according to their actual conditions. At present, there is a situation prevailing in Beijing, that is, some foreigners will find a few flatmates to rent a flat together. In this way, they have lightened the rent burden, at the same time, they have made friends and added to the fun of life, so kill two birds with one stone, why not?
So how do they find out the sub-lease housing information and the rent-sharing flatmates? I think the answer to this question is very much expected for those foreigners who have just arrived in Beijing or who are coming to Beijing.
Today, I will tell you how to quickly find rentable housing resources and suitable flatmates in Beijing, so that you can be in place, and immediately build a new home with new flatmates and get involved in Beijing's life as soon as possible.
Currently, there are two ways to quickly find rentable housing resources and suitable roommates in Beijing: the first way is there are 2 websites thebeijinger and wellcee, these 2 websites release new information about flats rental and flatmates search every day. You can access these 2 websites and browse carefully, and you will see the information about flats rental and roommates search in different areas of Beijing.
The information provided by the 2 websites will be the information that the current roommate is looking for a roommate or a shared flat is available for rent. The information will introduce the nationality, occupation, gender of the current roommate, and the general situation of the current flat, including the number of bedrooms in the whole flat, the size, the floor of the flat, the number of bathrooms, as well as the size, the furniture, the direction of the vacant room, and some other situations etc. Meanwhile, there are flat photos provided for you to browse and consult.
Through this information, you can choose a flat you like and a roommate you like, and then communicate with them through the contact method provided by the website; you can come on site to have a view of the flat, or you can choose a few more flats for comparison. If you like, you can rent it, and if you don't like, you can continue to search on these 2 websites and look at them on spots until you are satisfied.
Another way to find a sub-lease flat and a flatmate is through wechat, it is the most popular chat software in China at present. The specific step is that you need to join a group chat to find a sub-lease and a roommate information on wechat. I know there are 3 groups chats which specialize in introducing sub-rental and flatmate search information, there are hundreds of people inside each group, sharing sub-rental housing information every day. When you entered into such a group chat, you can directly see the newly released sub-rental housing information and finding roommate information every day. The name of these 3 groups chats is as below: Renting in BeijingExpats BeijingCozy shareflat, flat rent BJ.
If you want to try with these 3 groups chats on wechat, you need to download a wechat software first, and sign up an account, and then you need to find somebody to pull you into the group.
In order to be pulled into the group chat quickly, you could try to add as many foreign friends as possible on your wechat, as there is a possibility that someone is on your wechat and is just in the group chat, he could add you into the group; another way is you could try to send some blogs regularly on your wechat, the blogs should be flat search or flatmate search request, once some of your friends on your wechat found your request, and are in the group(s) chat(s) by chance, can add you into the group(s) chat(s) at first hand. In this way, you can directly see flats sub-rental information and the demand information of roommate(s) published every day in the group(s), it is very convenient.
Thanks to the development of modern technology and network, it brought many conveniences for our life. As a result, we should make good use of modern technology to make our life better. I hope this article can help you find a shared flat in Beijing smoothly, and I wish you a pleasant life in Beijing!

  • Angel Hi all, my apartment is in Central Park Post time: 2017-07-25 18:13:58

    Hi all, my apartment is in Central Park, it is a very good place for expats' families. Central Park, located at the heart of Beijing CBD, it is around 5-10 minutes walking distance to Fortune Plaza, World Trade Centre and Five-Star Hotels; The Subway of Line 6 and Line 10 is nearby. There is a Alexander Clubhouse in the compound, it is very popular in CBD area, gym, swimming pool and outdoor tennis court opens everyday. There are 2 supermarkets here, Jenny Lou's and April Gourmet. And you can also find several restaurants (Italian, French and Thai etc.), some coffee shops, laundries, hair salons and banks on the ground floor of the compound, and also a pleasant garden area for children. Vibrant community and good management, it is really a good compound that I would like to recommend :)

    I live in Park Avenue, a very good compound. It is next to Chaoyang Park, and the subway-line 14 passes by here; Inside the compound, there is a big playground for children, a nice and big clubhouse (gym and swimming pool) for all its residents here, a supermarket-April Gourmet, a clinic, a laundry, a hair salon and several coffee shops. It is really a very convenient place for family. I highly recommend this compound.
