motivate me to make more informative videos about friends so let's start with the type of accommodation first is the student residency if you are coming to france for the study then i suggest you to choose the student residency it's best for the students because in student residency you will meet lot of international students and you will enjoy a lot in students residency with other international students second is studio studio is like everything in one room you will see the bed kitchen bathroom everything in one single room it's a studio uh you will see in france type of studio like f1 t1 f2 t2 f43 t3 so f1 t1 it means one main room with a separate kitchen and bathroom and the f2 t2 is the two main room like one living room and one bedroom and with separate kitchen and bathroom f 3 t 3 is like three main room one living room and two bedroom and with a separate kitchen and bathroom it's like two bhk third is the sharing house in this option you will get a private room or a sad room in a house with other people in private room you will get your own private room and in a sad room you have to share a room with other person in house now you know about type of accommodation in france now i will tell you how to find it so if you are coming to france for a study then cruise is the best option for student residency in cruise you will get cheapest and best student residency you will get a cruise restaurant also in residency and cruise restaurants are cheapest restaurant for students for getting the accommodation in cruise you should apply before coming to france and also you should apply before its deadline for the academic year 2122 it will open on 4th may and close on 22 june you will find the link in the description if you want to apply in cruise second option for student is a student part i can say it's a trustable site i booked accommodation through studio part and the landlord was rejected my file and they gave a refund in one week and the third option is emotion for the student residency fourth best option for students who come to paris is a site university at sita university they have a residency country-wise like in indian residency all indian students are there in usa residency all usa students are there so you can check on sita university site is there any residency of your country so you can apply directly and they celebrate the all festivals in that residency like the indian students celebrate holi diwali navratri etc festivals for the students residency you can find a link in description so you will find the all student residency there and you can apply directly from there if you are not a student then you have other options like pep dot fr sasa paris sea lodgers room lala lebankwa this le banqua is not only for the accommodation but you can sell and buy the products also from this side also you can find the job from this side so this is the best site in france another option is to find a facebook group for accommodation like accommodation in paris accommodation in france but be careful in that group don't pay money without physical visits because there is a lot of scam on facebook groups in this group you will see the post of the other members which are certain searching for tenants or roommates i create i also created one facebook group for helping the indian students who want to come to france and also who already in france so you can find the link in description for joining the group every indian students are welcome on that group if you're in france then you can contact also the agency but this agency need a lot of paper works like they need french guarantor they need your salary more than three or four times to your rent so you will find the lots of agencies like rp leader blue emo emobilier etc and last but not the least option is my instagram i have some contacts for accommodation so you can contact me on my instagram i will suggest you some accommodation what should you ask before book the accommodation so you should ask everything is included or not like in some accommodation everything is included in some accommodation you have to pay extra for electricity bill water bill gas bill or wi-fi second you should ask is it furnished or not so in furnace apartment you will find the all amenities like a fridge microwave furniture bed everything you should ask you will get domicile or rent contract if rent contract then is it eligible for calf or not like caf is the housing allowance which given by the french government depend on your situation also you should ask is it a private or saving room also you should ask about the area of your room or studio so this is at the best common question you should ask before book the accommodation find an accommodation in france is very tough task it's take a very long time and more in most of accommodation they need a french guarantor if you don't know anyone in france then how you can provide a french guarantor so i will suggest you two options where you can get the french guarantor first the best option is the visal this is the totally free you just need to apply online like you have to submit your all documents about your situation and they will check your document and if they will agree for the guarantor then voila second option is guarantee me but this is not free you should pay for the guarantor documents first you need to apply online like you need to submit all your documents about your situation your financial situation they will check it and they will reply you if they are agree to be your guarantor and they will charge you 3.5 percentage of your rent so if you are paying 500 rand per month then they will charge you 17.5 euro per month to be eligible in a guarantee me you need to have the enough financial resources is it in abroad or in france it doesn't matter if you want to know about cost of living in france then you can check my previous video about cost of living you can find all link on my description box and best of luck for your accommodation that's it for today guys i hope you find this video very informative and you have clear idea about accommodation in france if you have a more question then you can contact me on my instagram and don't forget to subscribe my channel see you in next video bye bye me

hello everyone and welcome to this new video today we're gonna talk about housing and i'm gonna try to give you the five best tips and methods uh to find a house in 2022 here in groningen so let's start when you're trying to move here the first thing you have to think about is to find a place to stay whether it's a studio um an apartment or even just a room first of all the first and most important piece of information i have to give you is what is the range of a price for one month of rent and it usually goes between 350 and 650 euros per month but of course it depends by mainly three factors i would say first one is whether you want to live alone by yourself or with other people of course if you share a place with some other people usually prices decrease the second factor what is really important to consider is the location this really depends whether you study in campus tourniquet or in the city center if you study in zernikon my suggestion will be to find a place which is between the city center and campus jernika this would will allow you to spend less time cycling every day when you actually go to uni but if you study in the city center this is a bit of an advantage because you have more options and plus you can search for a place which is in the south of groningen where prices usually slightly decrease on average so my third uh factor what you have to consider of course is your budget and as you're willing to pay a higher rent per month the competition decreases and so your chances of getting a place increase so i would say that most of the people have a budget of around 450 500 euros and once you go above 600 euros that's where you have a big decrease in competition so the first method to find a house is quite an obvious one and it's to find a real estate agency nowadays in gone again the market is really competitive usually in in times without corona you would go to a agency in your office and talk to them see what options they would have but in corona times nowadays is is of course is different and the best way to a contact agency is to go on their website check if there's anything that can interest you and if there is you should mail them immediately you can call them to have more information about the property and all this kind of stuff another interesting thing about agency is that they they publish their offers on websites like parares and funda in this kind of websites you can kind of get an idea of how is how is the market what is the price and maybe you can unders understand better what you're looking for so we really suggest you to check out these two websites youtube is really high competition you have to be really uh quick to respond once you find something you like in fact there's a high chance that once you look at something there are already a lot of people but contacted them and if you want to move in in september of next year i think it's really important to start searching for a place around march april may maximum because then once you're in the summer the market is is way too saturated with way too many people searching for it per house i would rather pay an extra month of rent and and be sure that i have a place instead of coming here in the middle of the summer stressing about finding a place but you may be not even finding vienne some of the most famous agencies here or for example max which is the agency which helped me to find the place where i'm actually staying right now so the second method uh are facebook groups facebook groups are really good because there is nearly one where's usually at least one your announcement every day the problem with facebook group is the same as with agency there's so many people searching for house so once someone does a post there's already hundreds of people responding to it sending dms to the landlord so it's um once you find a place of course be really fast act really fast but i cannot stress this enough the disadvantage with facebook groups is that it's probably the place where there are more scammers so you have to be really careful about it and and sometimes the place doesn't even exist so check check all this stuff good thing about facebook groups is that when the landlord does the post he might actually be with one of your future roommates so you can maybe uh search him on his facebook profile uh see if you actually like to move in with him if you're lucky enough to get a viewing then it's important to act as as you would do in a normal day you can i can understand a bit how it is living with you and whether you can get along with each other so the third method i have for you or websites where you can pay the best example i have or a camera net and and room dot nl camera net is a website where you can choose your parameters so you can choose your budget the location cool thing about covering it is that you can see how many people you're going to live with what what is their gender and whether they're international or dutch so for camera net for premium i paid 26 euros so basically with pending 26 0 you kind of have a more specific research and it kind of this kind of optimizes your process to find a place my experience with camera net is that i sent many many requests but i got back not a lot of answers from a landlord i think i've got one or two viewing out of 45 50 requests i think something like that so that's what you what that's what i've got with camera net and then there is room darnell room doesn't know works in a really specific way basically you pay you pay 35 euros just once based on first arrive first served so as you enter the website and once you pay you can choose a place where you want to stay normally various studios around the city and you are put on a list which is basically a ranking and as time passes your your ranking gets better and better until you get offered a place one of a spot you choose and you have to be really fast to react and accept the place otherwise you're going to lose it this time that it takes you to uh go over the ranking and actually get a room really depends by each case it can take a month and month or just a few weeks i had a friend of mine who in a week got a place and and i have another friend of mine who waited an entire summer so you have to be really careful it's kind of the website and check them really often in order to actually optimize your chances of getting a place so the fourth method you can use to um find a place is to check out some student housing they're really diverse and you have many many options the the best options here in ghanian are of course ssh then you can you have places like western hotel seour and sugar homes so starting with ssh university like the university of kwan indian usually reserve a short stay accommodation so in order to apply for ssh you must be a bachelor master or phd student or even a part of the staff of a university once you're enrolled in a university you can apply for that and i think ssh or this category of student housing they are the cheapest option uh they're usually around 500 euros per month or below but usually you get your own room and sometimes you get a sh
