Living in London on a budget can be done; you just need to know where to look! If you have found your way here then you about to join other financially savvy people who are seeking a property to share with like-minded individuals in this fantastic city.
Putting yourself out there
Trying to find somewhere to live in London can be a difficult prospect, but Moveflat is here to help. We offer our Flatshare Wanted service so that anyone who is looking to move into London can post a personal advert that introduces themselves to others who need someone to share their flat with. Putting yourself out there and making sure people understand who you are and what you're looking for really cuts down on a lot of the problems associated with finding a flatshare normally. If people who have the space and need someone to help with their bills can pick you out because they feel that you would be a good match for them, then there is a very good chance you will feel the same way.
Seeking a Flatshare
Of course, if you are trying to move into or around London then you already know how tricky the property scene is in this wonderful city, but what about those who are looking for someone to move in with them. Well the biggest answer is normally to help pay the bills, as you are most likely aware, rental prices in London are incredibly high, but this is the price you pay for access to the cultural hub this city represents. But you don't need to pay for it alone, sharing a property means sharing the expense and this is what allows so many people to enjoy living in London whilst still maintaining a sensible level of expense.
Long and short term
Moveflat don't discriminate over how long your rental needs are. It doesn't matter if you want to stay a few days or a few months, we have lots of interested parties who browse our Flatshare Wanted section every day, looking for ideal housemates. Many of them will happily take in short term flatshares and this can really be an advantage if you aren't sure about each other. It gives everyone a good chance to get to know one and other whilst having a short time span so that if things aren't quite as successful as you'd have hoped, then there are no hard feelings. This is not to say that longer term shares are a bad idea, because if you click with someone, then a shared living arrangement can be a fantastic opportunity for everyone involved.
If you've ever tried online dating, then you have probably encountered those people who feel the need to embellish their profiles for a variety of reasons, but this kind of behaviour is not welcome at Moveflat. We value honesty and so do all or our users, and as such posting an honest and open request for a flatshare and making sure you let readers know your needs, expectations and budget in advance will help simplify things. We don't insist on a picture as we understand how some people feel about their privacy, but it is encouraged to help all parties make an informed decision.
Our ethos with property rentals is very important to us, and this definitely extends to the Flatshare Wanted service we offer. We want to help you move into London, as it is a city we love and are sure you will love it too, and finding a home to share is a great first step towards achieving this, so we hope you'll take that step with us.
