Finding a property in a foreign country as a foreigner can be nerve-wracking. Imagine this, as you roam around this foreign land looking like a lost puppy, looking for a place to live for the next few months or a few years. You start getting approached by a stranger offering you a deluxe apartment complemented with a bargained price. Should you trust him/her?
So many factors to come up when you look for a home, Is this a safe place to stay? Does it fit my personal requirements? Will I be able to afford it under my current budget? And most importantly, can I trust this person to deliver the promise or is there a flip side to it?
