How to find share house
Step 1. Use search engines like google, yahoo or baidu to look for share houses in Vancouver.
Type “Vancouver Share House,” or “rooms for rent in Vancouver.”
Or…Use local billboards
Vancouver craigslist – housing
Step 2. Contact the landlord
In Canada its ok to email, or contact the landlord directly. Very often the owner of the house (not an agency) will rent their room to you.
Step 3. Come and see share house
Just go and look! Be careful if you go alone at night.
Step 4. Pay Deposit if you like the room.
In Canada you do NOT have to pay for a “take over fee,” or more than half a months deposit.
Be careful of people preying on international students.
Enjoy your share life 😉
