  1. Take a walk around: if you have just been leaving from home to office and dropping off similarly or just going to the nearest store, its time to move a leg a bit. This will be helpful if you are trying to find a place nearby. Get your walking shoes on one day and look for places marked TO-LET. Few shopkeepers and security guards in the area seem to know the vacancy status of the places. So, move and ask around because this is will ease out your pain, help check the nearby utilities to the new area, see the people living along, refresh your day by walking and leave a few people with smiles.

  1. Facebook before internet: its the second best pool to find anything you need. Many cities have dedicated Facebook pages for renting/buying houses as well as stuff needed in the houses. The popular ones of them being- Flat and Flatmates (Delhi/Noida/Bangalore/Hyderabad/Mumbai Chapters) , Renting and Buying, etc. These are particularly convenient for individual seekers looking for an already setup place/flatmates or owners posting about their places ready to be rent. On such pages people also list the place they are vacating completely and if you are not an avid scroller you just post your complete requirements and anyone having a vacancy can contact you at a click on your phone. These are closed groups which means they allow either members or group admin to add further members so that your security is not compromised anyhow. The advantage here lies in the fact that if you are not willing to shell out money to the broker , you will be able to connect to the owner directly or with a few clicks check the Facebook profiles of theirs which a major screening method these days. So, post freely and get reverts concurrently. The pages are secure and optimized for genuine seekers so no issues for the ladies too.

  1. Spread the word: unless the hunt is not a secret spread the word about your search in your groups and circles because your friends or friends of friends might be knowing a place or two or moving out of the places where house help and other utilities can be assured. This can also get you flatmates if you need and few furnishings too if people are willing to sell their stuff before vacating the place. Its a win-win if luck chooses to shine on you those days. This also helps you meet the hitches, if any, of the place where you can get them repaired by speaking to the owner beforehand.

  1. Have your list & Make your calculations: build a list of your requirements clearly and know your budget in advance. Do a little research in advance and make an estimate to see how much your requirements cost you. Be sure to weigh all of them as the range is vivid these days. From Unfurnished to Fully-furnished, pet-friendly or restricted places, vegetarians-only inlets to no-restrictions at all, security enforced high-rise or garden surrounded low-rises,if you are blessed with options explore and enlist. Also, check how would you like to invest in the new place- less rent and one time furnishings or rent covering all your needs. Know your optional requirements too which you can sabotage against the mandatory ones. Like, more bedrooms and less toilets would do or everybody needs their single set.
