¥3700/month - Guangzhou 3 bedroom apartment. Not far from Zhujiang New Town. Top floor (33rd); no one lives above. Walmart across the street (if you’ve lived in China for any amount of time, you know what a huge plus this is:) and one more thing...absolutely NO COCKROACHES! Also, we have lived here a year and don’t smoke or have pets. We are the first tenants.

Location: Wenchong, Line 5. 2 minute walk from subway station. You walk out of the subway and see the apartment right there. 29 minutes to city center by subway. See attached Apple map screenshot.

By the way, if you’re a native English speaker, you could also likely take our old teaching jobs starting in September (no contract, fantastic paying and most importantly, flexible and convenient schedule).

THE DETAILS ON THE APARTMENT:

FULLY FURNISHED. This place came with no furniture (except for guest room bed frame and hard Chinese mattress, the Panasonic washer, new fridge and AC units) so we literally furnished it head to toe. The landlord (which is the management company downstairs-not an individual) just replaced 3 AC units with brand new ones. The only one that is not BRAND new is the one in the office which we have had zero problems with. Rent will go up from ¥3700 to ¥3900 next June (2019) per the two year contract we just signed in June.

Here are the terms if you want to move into this apartment:

1. You will take over our two-year lease (expires June 2020). The lease spells out that you will pay a ¥7000 security deposit, ¥3700/month the first year, ¥3900/month the second year and utilities are your responsibility (happy to show you our bills for past months so that you get an idea of that cost) as well as an ¥805 management fee every 3 months (standard in any complex). If you would feel more comfortable bringing a translator or chinese friend with you to explain the lease terms feel free (we did for our own peace of mind).

2. To take over our lease, for the change of contract, the management company charges a one-time ¥1850 fee that you will be responsible for (consider it the finder’s fee that you have to pay when you use a realtor. We found this place without the aid of a realtor and yet the company still required us to pay them half a month’s rent as their fee).

3. ¥26,000 (FIRM-NO BARGAINING) for EVERYTHING in the apartment. We’ve spent over $8,000 USD furnishing this place within the last year. When you move out you can just resell it. Everything you see in the photos except for my husband’s guitar (taking that with us:) and the few items that belong to the company which are 1.guest room bed frame and hard Chinese mattress, 2. the washer, 3. Fridge and 4. AC units. We aren’t interested in someone who wants to pick through what they want and don’t want and negotiate the price accordingly. From the big items like the furniture, oven, dryer etc. down to the small stuff like throw pillows-it’s all yours. Including but not limited to our pots and pans, air purifier, kitchen table and chairs, IKEA mattress (3 months old), BRAND NEW HP WiFi capable printer (with ink), Philip’s TV and DVD player, Apple TV, couch, mirrors, American imported rugs, lighting, space heater for winter, new IKEA duvets and covers, dehumidifier, knives, outdoor patio furniture, plants..we even have a dryer (Midea brand-excellent quality), and an oven ETC. ETC. And it’s all a year old or less. You can literally walk in be moved in and have everything you need to live extremely comfortably. We would make more money selling everything piece by piece but we would rather avoid the hassle. The company has spelled out in the contract the few items that belong to them so that when you move out there is no confusion as to what belongs to them and what does not!
