I am posting this topic to ask opinions about Malta renting status.
I find really difficult to find a place to rent primarily because there are very few signs in Malta "For Rent" and second because the only other way found is through agents which are not very helpful.
More details once you go to an agent the first question is how much is your budget. If you tell them ex 500 euro -regardless the location- they are not bothered to help you at all.
This causes of course inflation of the market value. Example 3 years ago you could find to rent a 2 bedroom apartment at 350euro, nowadays no less than 600 meaning that the renting in 3 years had doubled.
From the other hand were I currently live there are hundreds of block apartments completed for like 3 years and all of them are empty as if they are not interested in renting - only selling.
Does any body else faces this problem? Also do you have any other ideas on how the property market in Malta works?
When I came here it was nice, but now they are keep pushing the market to share flats as its getting to expensive to my opinion for a person to live on its own.
Finally as I see things, you migrate for a better life, but If I wanted to migrate so that I just to live and pay my rent maybe it would be better to move back to my country :-)
All opinions are welcome even the harsh ones as I am sure that many Maltese people might find offensive what I stated above
Thanks and regards
