Read this article in English here. 迁居加拿大后,寻找住处是大多数新移民首先要做的一件事情。与任何国际旅行一样,新移民通常在到达前会预订最初的住所。他们通常会首选通常在临时住所(如酒店、旅社、公寓、共管式公寓或独栋房屋)度过最初的几天或几周,有时甚至可能是几个月。 对于更永久的长期住所,新移民通常会选择租房作为在加拿大的第一个家,而不是直接买房。 根据你要移居的加拿大城市的租赁市场的供求关系和空置率,寻找到住所需要的时间可能会有所不同。由于与信用记录和就业证明相关的原因,许多新来者会发现在多伦多这样的大城市很难找到租到房子。但是,如果你打算住在郊区或中小城市,那找到住所可能相对要容易一些。 在这篇文章中,我们将提供租房涉及的所有规范、要求和流程指南,以便你能够在走下飞机后做到胸有成竹,做好准备,满怀信心地在加拿大开启新的生活篇章。  新移民如何在加拿大租到第一套房子 第一步:决定你租房的方式,是自己找房源还是通过房产经纪人 在加拿大寻找住所有以下两种方法。你可以: 1.通过各种线上和线下途径自己寻找:可以访问像ViewIt和 Condos.ca 这样的网站,了解不同区块的租金水平。如果希望找到更好的房源,可以使用 Craigslist、Kijiji、Zumper 和 Padmapper 等网站/应用。此外,还有一些各省内流行的选项值得参考,例如 Home Zone on Facebook(适用于多伦多和大多伦多地区)以及 Winnipeg Rental Network(适用于温尼伯省)。上述所有网站都是房源信息的汇集公司,因此能为租户提供直接与房东联系的渠道。  提示:如果某套房源信息看起来好到不真实,那就可能是骗局。在亲自核实住所并签署相应文件之前,不要支付任何费用。 2.聘用房产经纪人/房产中介:有很多房产经纪人和房产中介可以帮你寻找到住所。Realtor.ca 是一个寻找经纪人/中介的好去处。你也可以浏览ViewIt和 Condos.ca 等网站上的房源信息;每个房源信息通常都会列出房产经纪人的名字和联系信息,让你可以联系他们。   每种方式都有自己的优缺点。以下是一些你需要考虑的因素: 自己寻找房源 聘用房产经纪人 优点 你可以在网上查看各种选择,然后慢慢筛选。 与聘用房产经纪人相比,有可能找到价格更低的房源。 无需向房产经纪人支付佣金;佣金由房东支付,而不是租客。 房产经纪人可提供关于全部所需文件的指导,并帮你处理从开始到结束的整个租房过程。 获得的房源信息全部真实;受骗的可能性较小。 房产经纪人可以提供丰富的行业知识和经验。 省时无压力。 缺点 耗时,需要进行大量的研究,并付出大量精力。 如果查询到非法房源,则可能会被骗。 租房时可能很发现对方的非法行为。 你需要自己弄清楚并管理好所有的文件。 由于房东需要向房产经纪人支付佣金,这笔费用可能会转嫁到租金中。 [...]
