Tips on renting the ideal property

Malta attracts a wide range of people who are increasingly coming to work and live on our sought after and charming Island. All prospective tenants will at some point be faced with the challenge of finding a new home amongst the vast number of properties on offer in Malta. Searching for the ideal property can often be a daunting and time consuming exercise but with a little preparation you can make your search so much simpler and in most cases enjoyable.

Checklist - make a comprehensive list of what is important to you. This will make the searching process much easier and faster. Viewings may prove to be very time consuming. It is therefore advisable to get our agents to help you do as much research and preparation as possible. One important thing to focus on is the size of the property required. Essentially you must decide the number of bedrooms needed.

Budget – Another crucial point at this stage is to establish the price range you can pay for a property. It is important that you are sensible and realistic when it comes to budget and bear in mind the extra costs of running a place (water / electricity / internet / phone / TV package)

Location - Try to limit your search as much as possible to a few desirable localities. There are several criteria you should consider when deciding on locality. People who have been here before or did considerable research about the Island may already know where they would like to live – perhaps a familiar location where work colleagues or friends live nearby. If however you are new to the Islands it is advisable that you take your time to explore the Island as much as possible.

Travel distance - If you are here for work – commuting times are not usually very long being a small Island however there are certain localities where the distance to your workplace must be taken into consideration. You will usually make the journey to work ten times per week. For someone living on the other end of the Island from their workplace, commuting could take up to one hour each way during rush hours. If you are not careful you may easily end up spending close to an entire working day commuting in the week.

Property Type – Once the basic requirements, (area and price) are firmly established you can then further narrow your search by deciding on the property type, style and furnishing. When we speak of types of properties, the Island offers an interesting choice which may be organised into six main categories – apartments, penthouses, houses of character, villas, terraced houses and maisonettes. You may not find a property to rent which exactly matches all of your criteria but having a clear picture in your mind and deciding on the area and price before arranging viewings will help to prevent waste of time and effort.

Every prospective tenant has a different set of priorities. Once you have your bases covered then leave it in the hands of one of our Letting experts at Perry (all of which have extensive experience of the local market and knowledge of all it has to offer). We will be sure to find you the perfect home making your time and life on the Island a pleasant and enjoyable experience.
