How current are online rental postings? (luzern)

I've seen a number of different posts suggesting the rental market is, and has been, particularly tight in Zurich and Geneva. I've also seen many online advertisements for available apartments in Luzern stay online for weeks/months.

Does this suggest that a) the Luzern market is softer than the major cities?, b) perhaps the larger apartments I'm searching (4.5+ rooms) don't move as fast as others?, or c) Immostreet, home gate, et al, keep apartments online long after they've been rented?

At the end of the day, I will be taking a house hunting trip before renting, so query is more to understand accuracy of online inventory (and to manage expectations of my lovely wife, lest she fall in love with pictures of an apartment that was rented two months ago...)

Re: How current are online rental postings? (luzern)

My very limited experience:

We just moved to Luzern and rented a 5.5 room apt. We searched for 4.5 to 6 rooms. We were able t find 20 or so ads in homegate that seem to meet our criteria. Virtually all of them were available to show when we called. The apartment we ended up renting was removed from homegate page few days after we signed (by the realtor, I just checked for curiosity).

Good luck with your move

Thanks, ek. That's exactly the kind of ground truth info I was seeking.
