How do I find a place to live in Denmark?
We asked expats how they chose their neighborhood and found a place to live. They answered...
"In order to find a place to live in Denmark, research on the areas that work best for you in terms of lifestyle, budget, and proximity to your job or school. Check out popular classifieds websites and other real estate websites to link up with brokers, landlords, and apartment management companies. Additionally, you can use online resources to search for rental listings, attend rental housing events, or request rental searches from brokers. Additionally, you can network with locals, ask people you know, or join online expatriate groups to increase your chances of locating an affordable place to live," commented one expat who made the move to Denmark.
"We needed to rent a furnished apartment or home. That narrowed down our search to only one decently sized townhouse (rakehaus). In hindsight I wished that we had just sucked it up and purchased Ikea furniture to open up our choices. The townhouse was ok but I kicked myself for not listening to my gut instinct that one main bathroom for a family of four just wouldn't work for us. It didn't. And it was a supreme source of frustration because that one bathroom had a shower leak that the owner refused to fix until we moved out and charged us for the repair and cleaning of all the lime buildup. That's common in Denmark -- the owners of rentals will charge you for fixing things they should have fixed while you lived there," remarked another expat in Copenhagen, Denmark.
