Current state of rental market in Geneva?

So, yesterday I posted my Geneva-apartment on a couple of sites as I am leaving. I expected an onslaught of people wanting to see the apt but sofar 2 people have sent an email asking for pictures - no one has shown any real interest. When I moved here 2.5 years ago it was almost impossible to find an apartment...has things changed that much or is it just bad timing?

It's a bad time of your to rent out your apartment, even in a tight market.

We're potentially looking to rent (or sub-lease) a place in Geneva - PM me the details.

Re: Current state of rental market in Geneva?

put pictures up in the first place, rather than making people ask for them.

Hurry and make 10 posts here on EF, and then you can advertise the flat here- unless Ploymi takes it up first

Re: Current state of rental market in Geneva?

If it is a sublet or taking over an existing lease, expect less traffic.

But I think your bigger problem, like others have said, it the time of year. If people need a place in January 2013, they likely already have had that arranged for months.

Re: Current state of rental market in Geneva?

What about the price? It usually explains a lot.

Re: Current state of rental market in Geneva?

My colleagues and I had a hard time finding affordable apartments when we moved to Geneva in December.. some of them are still looking.... I always look at price first, but if an apartment doesn't have photos, I'm less likely to enquire.. In case your place is <1000CHF per person, please do PM me!
