After you have decided to move to Shanghai, I would recommend you to immediately start to browse different webpages and find out what property type you are interested in.

Things you should know before contacting a real estate agent is:

– Where you want to live

Read the article “Puxi or Pudong – where to live?” if you want to know more about the different areas in Shanghai and what they have to offer.

– Preferred property type (villa, old house, lane house, new apartment etc.)

– Budget (how much are you willing to pay every month?)

– If you want to have a furnished or unfurnished apartment.

– Particular facilities required (swimming pool, restaurant nearby, etc).

The real estate company can provide you with information you would feel that is important for you to make a choice. Some of the real estate companies in Shanghai have a long experience in offering properties to foreigners, but it really is important that you choose a company that knows how to handle foreigners.
