We know moving in to a new country and “settling in all over again” can be quite overwhelming. One does not know too many people at this point and finding a trusted source of information can take a while. That’s where getthat and the ‘Where should I live Guide’ can really be a life saver!

At getthat, we understand that as a new expat you are not simply looking for properties based on your budget. You are also looking for a bit of guidance. It is only natural that you aren’t sure of the locations you should look at. Perhaps you have just landed your job and that is the only location you are familiar with. On the other hand, perhaps you’ve just enrolled your kid into school and are looking for properties within a 30 minute drive radius from that school.

Whether you are on your phone or browsing on your desktop, here’s how you can make the most out this guide.

  • Tell us whether you want to rent or buy
  • Choose the location you’d like to be close to
  • Tell us exactly where that is by choosing your current location or typing the name of the building or street
  • Choose the amount of time you’d be comfortable travelling every day
  • Choose your mode of travel

Voila! You have a pre-sorted list of properties based on your preferences. Now you could choose to keep it open and look at multiple property types and bedrooms or get down to chatting about specifics like budget, amenities and other preferences.

Once you are on the results you can sort the properties based on price or distance. You can click on ‘Rethink options’ to change your preferences at any time. Alternatively, you could also go back to your chat and edit any of the choices you made earlier and view the results.

We have really loved putting this together for you. Whether you are renting or buying. we hope this helps you find your dream home. If you have any questions, suggestions or thoughts, we would like to hear from you on hello@getthat.com
