Looking for a rental flat? Or looking for renting your flat? But don’t know the market price? C’mon in.
When it comes to renting a flat, you as a renter/lessee for sure don’t want to pay excessive amount that is way beyond the area market price. Same goes to you homeowners/lessor, for sure you also don’t want to market your house for a price lower below the market price.
So now the issue is what is the market price for that particular area? How much does it cost to rent it out at certain area? While you (as homeowners) can ask out your neighbors or you (as renter) can ask people who stay on that area but actually there’s even an easier way to do it – the one that doesn’t involve asking neighbor or people around.
