What are the advantages of flatsforexpats.com? Renting an apartment in Zurich or Geneva or another city with a very difficult housing market can be challenging. On flatsforexpats.com you find rental apartment offers which are from other expats who are looking for a flatmate or a new tenant for the apartment they are leaving. The expat placing the ad agrees on publishing the offer exclusively on flatsforexpats.com in order to give other expats the exclusive chance to get the apartment or room.
The goal is to make it easier for expats to rent an apartment in a city which might be new to them. You can subscribe for free if you see the offers, select the city you want to rent an apartment in and then subscribe in the left side menu.
