Question:
I am moving to Moscow and because I am on quite a junior salary I am hoping to spend as little on rent as possible. I am keen to be as close as possible to the centre and/or in a nice area and obviously would like it to be as comfortable as possible! Could you please let me know what I can expect with this criteria? I really don't want to pay more than $2000 and ideally less. Also, what are the up-front costs when renting an apartment such as deposit, etc... Thanks!
Bridget
Answer:
Dear Bridget,
With a budget of $2,000 you should be able to rent a 1-bedroom apartment size approximately 45-50 square meters, furnished but not luxury. The up-front cost is generally a security deposit to the landlord and an apartment finder's fee to the agency each equivalent to one month's rent. Aside from the monthly rent, you should expect to pay for internet ($20-30 per month), satellite tv ($20-50 per month) and electricity ($10-30 per month).
