The Earful Tower: Paris

The Earful Tower: Figuring out France with guests who know best. 

Nov 26, 2018

Finding a rental property in Paris can be like finding a needle in a haystack.

But imagine there are hundreds of other people looking for that needle too. And now imagine that when you find the needle, the needle's owner is very likely to ask you for a large amount of money and documents before you'll be allowed to have it.

You need to prepared, and I mean really prepared. 

For this week's podcast episode, you'll hear about how gruelling the whole affair can be from the perspective of a man who had his own tricky journey, Australian entrepreneur Mitch Pascoe.

He sent in 150 applications and was once asked for three years' rent up front before he finally secured a home.

And check in on the website here for the golden rules of renting from property consultant Adrian Leeds.
