Re: Any tips to find an apartment in Zurich?

THe other thing I would add is try to find a place that is not advertised on homegate as you will stand a better chance. Look for contacts in big organisations as they often advertise internally. Post your interest here on English forum with what you are looking for etc.
With your application itself, you will need to apply as if you are applying for a job, cover letter, pictures, CVs, bank statement, references, letter of recommendation from current employer, work contact, work permits, etc. Get an online/electronic copy together for fast and quick applications.
Also, just a tip, it doesnt cost anything to apply, but if you are successful before you ask for the contract, be careful as some agencies charge you a fee if you ask for the contract and then do not take the apartment.
best of luck!
