WARSAW APARTMENTS

Expats in Warsaw usually wonder what are the costs of living in Warsaw. Thankfully Warsaw, is still less expensive than major cities like Paris, London. Nevertheless it is still not a cheap place to live as it used to be.
There is a couple of expat's districts in Warsaw with apartments and houses of a much higher standard than average.  Typical apartments of a higher standard will be found mostly in the newly built district i.e. Powisle, Mokotow or Wilanow. You can also find lots of newly built houses just in the middle of the older, now rejuvenating typical communistic districts. Although many expats arriving to Warsaw would love to live in a historical house near the Old Town, in most cases these apartments do not meet the needs of expats, especially due to unreconstructed staircases and inner patios which give a feeling of a neglected area. However talk to your realtor as more and more of the houses are being reconstructed and hence create a wonderful fit for expats who are single or couples without children. 

The rent prices varies depending on the location and standard of the property. Enjoy your house search!
