Did you find a place easily?
I couldn’t believe how difficult it was to get an apartment in Paris, though I had heard it was challenging before I came here. I went into it with a positive attitude and made it work. Before arriving, all I had was the first 6-weeks in an AirBnb to get settled and then look for a place when I was in Paris. I looked online, found a couple agencies and saw a couple places. Typically, it’s absurd all the documents you need to have, or the money you need to make to secure an apt. Again, I feel like I was very lucky because I had found an apartment run by an agency and I was able to have my father as my guarantor. I did have to provide statements from him, along with a letter, my bank statement to prove I had enough money for a year’s rent and then of course, pay the agency fee, along with security and month’s rent to secure the place.
