How to rent apartment in wudaokou .Near Blcu Tsinghua .Peking university .
If you're new comer in Beijing, finding a good apartment in wudaokou can be a regular pain in the butt.
Most of the decent listings are in Chinese; most of the landlords don't speak a lick of English; you'll soon realize this Herculean undertaking is also a next to impossible undertaking.
And if it's all driving you a little crazy, well, you're in luck, because you're exactly the sort of person we put today's article for: our authoritative guide on how to find your very own Beijing apartment.
Part One :
At first .you can try to know the wudaokou area well .like the university location.complex name .hospial .wudaokou subway station and etc.the best way is through some famous websites .like we know thebeijinger.echinacities and etc .Here is a list of wudaokou information .
1.For the university information .Blcu .Tsinghua & Peking university .they all nearby wudaokou subway station .I guess it is best way to show it on map .
2.Wudaokou area with two compound .Huaqingjiayuan .Dongshengyuan.they are beside of wudaokou subway .in wudaokou downtown .so .the price is a litter bit higher than the neighbourhood.the area with gym .swimming pool .shopping mall .cinmea .restrant.the best point is they are walking distance to Blcu Tsinghua .Peking university.
FuRunjiayuan is is a nice complex in wudaokou.just a litter bit far from wudaokou subway station .but it is the best location to Blcu east gate .walking about 10 min on foot .
3.Liudaokou area with 3 complex .WenChengJieZuo .Qingfenghuajingyuan .Yichengdongyuan .they are very nice apartment than wudaokou .Also the price is lower .just location is a litter bit far from the university center .but they have many transport to school .like bus .bike and etc .
Part two :
I think you already know someting about wudaokou area"s complex name and location after you see the map .the rest step is go and see the real estate agencys .
1) At first .forget all the interesting flat on website . In fact you’ll soon discover that most of classifieds on website are posted by real estate agents.and they are fake photoes. So better to talk to them directly.and talking face to face for all teh information you want know .like location .price .direction .furniture .wifi and etc and then decide if you want to see it. My experience with the ones in Huaquing Jiayuan is in fact quite good; and then find the apartment successfully . but who knows if you will meet a good agent ,
2) When you see the apartment .you should make sure the wifi .furniture .supermarket and the way how to go to your school.walkign or take bus .or bike .which bus can bring you .and where is the short way to school .and how to charge the gas .water .elec .does the agency can help you to do that or you should charge them by yourself later .and where you can charge .like the gas only beijing bank can charge it .elec you can charge it in beijing bank and ICBC.all the complex water fee .the water company worker will go to your apartment to get the fee each month .and best for you to make a creat card to pay them from internet .After you know all the information well .you can decide if you want takt it soon or you still want thinking longer .
3 ) And then it is the last step .for CONTRACT, FEES, AND PAYMENT
Agencies fees: NEVER PAY anything to any agency before you agree on an offer .The only case where you should pay a commission is after the agency helps you to find apartment and sign the contract with landlord. Usually.the fee is one month rent if you sign the contract for one year .if few monthes .you can talk with agency to give you a discount .
The contract is mostly bilingual (Chinese English cross) .Note that the term of the rental has to be fixed (1 year, 6 months, or few months you need ). You normally pay 3 months + one month deposit when you sign .here .i want explain again what is the deposit in most chinese eyes .the deposit means to make sure you will stay in the apartment for the contract time .and keep all the frutniture well when you leave .many case .like the person want leave earilier .they tell landlord one month ago .but when they leave they still can not get back the deposit .So. I hope all the person who is going to rent the apartment think about the time well for how long you want stay there and then sign the contract .
Part three :
Short term rental: normally real estate agencies do not do below 6 months terms rentals. So they were quite surprised when I asked for a 2 months rental; they however all helped me to find something. Of course it made my search more difficult: a landlord has no advantage to sign a 2 months contract when he could get a 6 months or one year.. While all the signing contract & inventory process taking more than one hour, I understand that he does not want to lose his time especially if he lives at the other side of Beijing. My only option to get something was to put more money on the table – which means that I paid 3800 RMB for a 47 square meters 1 bedroom apartment in Dongsheng yuan while the normal price is around 2800. But this is still cheaper than hotels around.
Plus ; All the chinese bank working whole week .From 9am -5pm .if you are ready to get the cash .notice the time .
Ok.that is all .
Hope you have a good trip in wudaokou .beijing.
