I am moving to HK in the middle of March and before I make a decision on where to stay temporarily during apartment hunting I would love your thoughts on the following:
- Typically, when do rental apartments become available? Is it usually the 1st of the month or is there a good amount of inventory available mid month?
- How far ahead are apartments rented out? If I start looking for apartments around March 20th, what are my chances of finding a good deal on an apartment within 10-15 days?
- Any tips when it comes to apartment hunting? My budget is HKD20,000 - 22,000 and am looking for a 1 bedroom in a relatively new building outside of the prominent areas of HK Island.
