The best way to start
First decide for yourself what you are looking for. What we need is your list of basic requirements. Should we be looking for a house, a villa or an apartment? Must it be furnished, semi-furnished or upholstered? In which locality should we be looking and within what kind of budget? Is off-street parking essential and how far may the property be from schools, shops and public transportation? How many bedrooms should the property require? Do you come alone or maybe with your wife and kids or even together with pets? For how long will the lease last and when must it start?
