I'm familiar with the dynamics, considerations, and trials and tribulations of renting in Hong Kong, but wanted to understand how Macau was compared to HK. I have some friends immigrating to Macau soon and wanted to help them find somewhere.
In particular, compared to Hong Kong, what's different / same / worse / better with regards to:-
- Property availability
- Accuracy / usefulness of online listings (i.e. HK pointless - same for Macau?)
- Lead time to find somewhere decent (I normally assume really 1 month in HK to get a decent chance to get to know the agents, get a good selection, sort out paperwork etc)
- Typical rental periods (is it like HK where its usually 12months + 2 months notice?)
If anyone who has had experience and / or a view on both HK and Macau and can compare and contrast, that would be really useful.
