Re: Apartment Searching--Realtor fees, etc.

Quote:
I'm starting to look at apartments in Luzern and because I am still in the US, am looking only online. Right now I am primarily using homegate.ch and immoscout24.ch. What are reasonable rents for a 1-2 bedroom (which is considered a 2-3 Zimmer, right?)? I've budgeted for around 1800-1900 CHF.

Also, what is the protocol for realtor fees, if any. Here in Boston, if you use a realtor use generally expect to pay 12% of your yearly rent. If these fees do exist in CH, is there a fee-free way of finding apartments?

Finally, of course, if anyone has a wonderful apartment available or knows of one, please send me a PM.

THanks again!
Although you will be fee-free over here you do need to budget 3 months rent as a deposit so be warned...
