Many, who decided to move, always sharply raises the question of property. How do you find an apartment in a new place? Let us examine this in the example of Shenzhen, where we have decided to move after 10 months of work in the north of China.
By the time, I found a job, we have two weeks lived in a beautiful apartment, in which Sasha let us live and I went to look for housing, can not be the same at a party all the time… Shantanu (Shangshuai) – good, quiet area, but the road to work on Bayshichzhou (Baishizhou) takes at least an hour, peshkom and metro, one-way.
Цены в районе Наншань
Agents in the metro area Bayshichzhou excitedly offered me an apartment in 37 meters on 8 floor for 3300 yuan. Kitchen and toilet there in one cavern, small apartment with views of the surrounding houses… On the same day I saw a few terrible choices, which is not exactly worth the money, what they ask for. For example, small dark studio 30 odd meters, to 3 floor, no kitchen, can cost 2400.
I do not know, than all that like it BSHCH, overpopulated area with cocked prices – 30 meters, the first floor of the 1800 yuan; killed 36 meters in the old, terrible walkup, with a terrible kitchen – 2500 yuan per month.
Option to share two-room apartment on 2 family, this is an option, such is at metro 4-6 тысяч юаней per month. But we wanted to live together, in a separate apartment. Some agents there just talking, that work only on apartments, rent price which starts from 4000 yuan per month.
In areas Hitech Park (Hi-tech park) I was offered an apartment in metro 2800 CNY, but vidom of stroyku. The prospect of the whole year listening to jackhammers and the entire range of building sound, not relish.
When helping a friend move to Russian guys Shantan, I learned and prices for small studios in the metro Taoyuan (Taoyuan) – it can be 2800-3000 yuan per month, for kvartiru in 37 kvadratov of 28 floor. Main, that is captivating in these apartments – view from the window.
There was another option for 3100 в Coastal city (метро Hou Hai), too good, clean area in Shekou, but we already knew, where we want to live…
So, if you want to rent an apartment in Shenzhen, then you first need to determine the area, travel around the city, find all sorts of places.
In many homes, you will find agents, which usually cover a small area, Some agents, happens, work with only one house.
Сайты где можно поискать апартаменты
Another option for apartment hunting can be popular in China Sites 58.com and handzhy.kom. If you're talking about and you know how read Chinese, these sites can and will be useful to you, there can filter proposals for metro stations, Areas, ask price range.
But, According to my friend, in most of the ads left attached photos. – This tricks agents, when hoping to stay in budget accommodation, as with photos, you call them – they say, that this option is no longer offered and something else. Of course, caught and truthful ads, you can try your luck!

But the main feature, that in many homes with apartment you can help guard. As we know, guards in China – This multifaceted mechanisms, that perform many different functions, and may be unrelated to their main tasks.
About apartments îíè know, because communicate with residents, agents, they do not like, because they believe, those that receive a disproportionate amount of, Our Chto. And more, if agents take themselves half the cost of the monthly rent you an apartment with, and a host, it is really too much (to two months' pay, for the first and last month). The guards also take a small commission for assistance – several hundred yuan.
In a pleasing home, you can directly go to the guards and learn “Yo ma fan Tzu?” Better to have a Chinese friend at your fingertips, of course. “And fan” – one room, “and Tin” – one living room.
The house, which attracted us initially, lives Fernando, and we knew, that there can rent a studio for 2100, very decent. After that, pay for the hut on BSHCH somehow did not want to. He helped me learn, and thanks to him, Now we live in a pretty small studio in the same building (метро Baoan Stadium).
A little bit about the purchase of apartments in this city. Prices vary, but almost every corner you can see young people, selling apartments. In the hands of these great colored sheets with descriptions of apartments in different complexes under construction. Agents sitting in the subway, in shopping centers organize the sale with huge layouts you may want to consider apartment complexes closer. Even at intersections they are with cheap printed labels for the sale of apartments and adhere to all drivers, that stop at traffic lights.
For example, take layout, that is lying around at home: price kvadratnogo meters, near the beach, in new home, may be in the region 4680 yuan (1 Yuan stands today 5,34 ruble). Discount options 70, 80 and 110 square meters.
During the stay in Shenzhen, I managed to get away, in different houses, very spacious and beautiful. Some are 25 million yuan, some just goes on vacation 15-20 thousand a month, accordingly it is possible to estimate, such as apartments, to 100 squares, will cost.
Put the perfect place found, before signing the contract should be checked, to make it work. Sometimes apartment rent with all furniture. We went to an empty, but spacious studio, 47 square meters on the sunny side.
Before signing the contract, the landlord showed me a certificate of ownership of the flat, explained how to pay each month, exchanged phone numbers, skrepili deal
Now we live in this beautiful area of Baoan, house, in 1 minutes from the metro and let to work while it is necessary to ride the subway, we will not be sorry, we chose this place, especially when such great neighbors.

Lesch, what is now the ratio of the dollar against the renminbi?
Are there special Chinese housing options (the optimum height of the ceiling, etc.)?
Have you heard about the project of Michael Wolf 100×100 (http://photomichaelwolf.com/#100×100/1)?
Pishut you kitaytsы the wall lift?
How are technological home more or less wealthy class?
Dollar now 6,09 yuan worth. I always kept going 1 to 6, as, eg, Yuan – 1 to 5 rubles (though the course and jumps and the ruble now cheaper). About fengshui in Chinese apartments I do not know. I guess it all depends on your budget. I have a 3-storey penthouse, did not consider it the height of the ceilings, but looks cool. About Michael eschё zatsenyu, Mandatory.
China large, I'm sure, that, as in Russia, here there are assholes, ready to fuck lifts, of the, I went buttons like never been singed. Often rather stupid stickers with phones blurt, reklamka such illegal. And the home of Stanley and likewise glued eё, and also showcases.
Well, core technologies are sensors in the front, so that the light is turned on for the sound or movement, solar panels, some standing on the roofs of, fast lifts, as well as new homes do not even remember any special bells and whistles. Rather, within the rich people can afford to do “smart home”, but Russia is also possible to make at – means would.
How tolerant bills for electricity and water?
Whether the Chinese are doing recycling?
How big is the influx of people to the cities from the countryside?
In Baoding we turned 100-200 yuan a month for electricity, for water can not remember now, there like a few hundred for 8 months of our stay. In principle, it is inexpensive.
Of course, китайцы делают recycling, recyclable, other waste и organism на мусорках)) Processing station is in the city, one even near the place, where I now work. Smells like there is not much, but well, that such treatment facilities available here.
It's hard to find, how many people from the villages come to town – train stations are always a lot of people with big bales. On construction sites in different cities a lot of workers from the countryside. Still, it is impossible to determine the village only the dark color of the skin, travels a lot every day. But better migration, temporary and permanent you tell the Chinese Bureau of Statistics. I do not dig in the statistics, there will be time, you will write more.
Looks cool. IMHO here and in Moscow, Зная язык зщамучаешься снимать 🙂 Рад, that you have found, searched.
I think, article in English “as cheap to rent an apartment in Moscow” will be very popular, that the Russian TOZÉ. I remember only the prices in Moscow probably like in these new buildings – 75000-100000 rubles, right? We are very pleased with the local housing, and get up on the sunny side nicely.
By the way, with all of the misery, I have shown in the area, where I work, my colleague there a place in the Chinese style, in a relatively old house for 1600 yuan per month – 8 rubles per odnushku. Something tells me, In Moscow these prices will be impossible to find. What is the lower price threshold in the capital?
The lower threshold… It seems to me from 15000
I know say, that within the 1st ring – is 40K per month. Well, that 15 thousands, and it is far from the metro and all, that for this can be removed and where?
Prices for apartments in Moscow begin anywhere from 23-25 thousand for odnushku in the Khrushchev on the outskirts of. 15 – this room, apartments for the money does not happen.
Thanks for the latest information. Yes, it certainly, not an option, can only work if the work is close to home. Now, when we saw a lot of options, how to live differently, I do not know, why people are so eager to live in a big city, even if the conditions were terrible. In Hong Kong, people still come, settle and even cell (literally) shoot for unrealistic money. Is it worth it?
About the purchase of an apartment too huge difference, can be half a million yuan to buy a small studio in Shenzhen, and can be unrealistic at the mansion 200 square meters, in a small town, in the hour accessibility of Beijing. And in Russia we, also think, a little further away from Moscow and St. Petersburg, you can find a good accommodation for a small price.
To Bestia: I mean behind the prices ))) colleagues removed for 25-27 odnushku not far enabled metro, in a decent house, that's supposed, that 15 quite logical price for something far away from the metro and some are not the best area. Sam took four photos of 18 4 a year ago.
view from the window at the familiar rayonchik. 宝安 中心 where I worked as much 2 this month admiring the view from the window, as it turned out for 3000 yuan per month of all. And provided me with accommodation near 文汇 中学 with a beautiful view of the road and daily accidents at crossroads.
Now I live near the station 龙华 penultimate station on the red line.
In Shenzhen am already total 3 month, learned a lot.
Are only interested in the question- how to work here that would really save up for a normal apartment at the salary 6000 yuan per month?
Under normal mean- accommodation in splendid isolation without neighbors. Desirable existents bathroom, tk. Shower already got a bit.
Good question about the apartment, it is relevant in any country. I shall come from the north-west: If you want to buy an apartment in St. Petersburg at the salary 1000 dollars, you will have to save for it sooooo long. Therefore, most people agree on the mortgage, if the husband and wife both work, then for a couple of decades they will buy an apartment in installments. The certificate of ownership of our landlord in Shenzhen has been written, he bought 48 square meters for almost 500 тысяч юаней, ie. almost 3 million rubles. This studio, without neighbors, with a nice view of the stadium)) Bath is not here, but cozy apartment, if you want because you can and go to the bath.
You have to Longhua these baths set, there the whole pool is)) Maybe somewhere on the outskirts of cheaper housing, we did not spend long study on how, but in order to save up for an apartment in the big city, unfortunately, need to have much more, than 6000 yuan…
…have to look for a wife or female, that would quickly accumulate)
Good afternoon. А как сейчас обстоят дела с арендой квартир? Нужно ли регистрироваться при приезде в Китай и при снятии квартиры?
С арендой проблем никогда не было. Регистрация нужна. Либо штраф- 50 юаней если не ошибаюсь
Сейчас живу в районе 宝安区，метро 马鞍山 11 ветка. Rent an apartment 1500 yuan per month ( свет и вода не более 300юаней). Квартира- 45 кадратов, Hall, спальная комната,туалет, balcony, кухня встроена в зал. Очень тихий район, есть иностранцы ( в основном все учителями работают). При заработной плате 6000-10000- самый нормальный вариант, I think.
Такая дешевая аренда – это обычно довольно большая проблема в Шэньчжэне для густонаселенных станций метро. А рядом с Пинчжоу, это очень даже хорошая цена. Так что, отвечая на вопрос Петра, найти вполне можно квартиру, if desired.
Всё верно описано, сами снимали в те времена квартиру за аналогичные цены.
