    3 TIPS FOR EXPAT TO RENT APARTMENT IN HO CHI MINH


    1. Find a room in your interested building for rent in a few days.

    There are many locals offering extra rooms for rent in their apartments, and it is practical for many reasons. First, you can stay with someone who can offer you some pointers when you first arrive. At the same time, it gives you a chance to look around different areas of the city before committing to a lease, while also allowing time to find a job and choose an apartment for rent close to your office. The last situation you want to be in is to living out of a hostel and desperate to sign a lease. This is what happened to us when we first got here, and itís not ideal.


    1. Negotiate

    Donít be embarrassed to play hardball. This is going to be your home for a year or maybe more, so get the best deal you can now, because you will not be able to change it later. And donít feel bad about doing so, because there are more apartments in Ho Chi Minh than there are tenants. Please note that you should not be too hard if you really like it and the landlord will be ok to leave it vacant for a few months as they are all billionaires (to afford to buy an apartment in Ho Chi Minh city).

    3. Negotiate the amount of the lease.
    Before you start negotiating, pick a budget that you are willing to pay. Start low and chances are they will meet you in the middle. Donít be scared to say no if they donít accept your offer. Walk away. And then call them in a couple of days. Chances are they might have changed their mind.

    4. Negotiate the amount of the deposit.
    They might ask you for 3 months deposit. 2 months is standard. With our new landlords, we negotiated the terms to give them 1 monthís deposit and the last monthís rent.
    However, if you happen to do something horrible to the apartment, and they deserve another monthís deposit to repair the damage, hopefully you will do the honest thing and give it to them.

    5. Make sure itís stated in the lease that they are responsible for repairing appliances that break while you are living in their apartment.
    If you wake up one morning and your fridge is broken, you will be thankful you took the time to do so.
    We have learned that you are new expats and struggling to find a . With our experience in the market and customer service, please do not hesitate to contact us to get supports without any fees.
