Re: List of sites for searching apartments, housing and serviced apartments

Hi all,
I found this post very helpful. So, I just wanted to add these sites to this list..

Well, the grand-daddy of all classified sites that is becoming extremely popular (at least in the US):And for those of us living or interested in the Italian-Swiss Ticino (Tessin), here is the list of sites that are useful.
  • Cerca e Trova (rent or buy: houses, apartments, etc. - Also cars, bikes, etc. - Language: IT)
  • Ticinocom (rent or buy: houses, apartments, etc. - Also cars, bikes, etc. - Language: IT, and very bad EN, etc.)
  • Studio Immobiliare Ticino (rent or buy: houses, apartments, villas, lofts, etc. - Language: IT, EN)
Thanks,

Re: List of sites for searching apartments, housing and serviced apartments

a couple of sites I've used for finding and also advertising an apartment...
(I found these recommended in an online NZZ article about how difficult it is finding an apartment in Zurich, and where to look to stand a fighting chance. They recommended these as the places the Swissies look to find the places that go 'under the radar' and don't even get as far as being listed on homegate).

Ron Orp
www.ronorp.net

Separate sections for Basel, Bern, Luzern, St. Gallen, Zurich, Winterthur.

For Zurich, there's both german and english versions, but very few apartment ads actually get posted in the english section. Also sections for swapping apartments, etc.. (Look for the 'Dach über dem Kopf' section im the german version )


Jesselespool & Naloo's immomailing
www.jesselespool.com
www.immomailing.ch

Zurich-centric, as far as I know. Both offer the same service (and state in their AGBs that they share their sources).
For submitting an advert, this is free.
For searching, you pay a one time fee of CHF 50 to receive a daily email listing all the ads that have been submitted in the last 24hrs. They claim (but offer no guarantee) that their ads are not listed on homegate and the like. When submitting an ad, you have to check a box to confirm that you haven't also listed it on any of the big property sites, such as homegate.

I wasn't sure about this, but decided to give it a shot as I was getting desperate after the umpteenth homegate rejection!! I'm currently subscribed to jesselespool and get anything in the range of 0-10 apartment ads per day. Most of them are people looking for 'Nachmieters'. Also apartment swaps are often advertised here.


Tauschwohnung

For apartment swaps, you could also try www.tauschwohnung.ch. I haven't used it myself but I hear a friend has had some success using this site.

Hope these help...

Re: List of sites for searching apartments, housing and serviced apartments

Just seen a quarter page advert in this weekends IHT (they must have money). www.expatmarketplace.ch - not too many places to rent/buy at the moment, but it looks like they intend to get much bigger. Perhaps you can add this to the list? (or is it a competitor?)

Re: List of sites for searching apartments, housing and serviced apartments

Its pretty simple to read all these sites in English..

Set your laptops to auto translate and every page you open will change to English...

Re: List of sites for searching apartments, housing and serviced apartments

This thread has ideas.

Essentially apartments which may or may not exist, with deposit schemes, loop holes, Nigerian banks, etc.

I think you can only find scams on this page. I sent an e-mail to 3 house "owners" and they all tried to make me pay a caution of 1 month rent by western union without even showing me the apartment, saying they were living in the UK
