For the self-employed, finding an apartment in France and especially in Paris can be a real challenge. Indeed, landlords often prefer people with permanent contracts rather than self-employed people. Self-employed people have to prove their financial stability, which can be difficult for them when they don't have a regular income or when they have only been established for a few months.
In addition, landlords are often reluctant to enter into long-term rental agreements with them.
Fortunately, there are some solutions that can make it easier for freelancers to find a place to live in France. One of these solutions is to use rental hunters or coliving if you are a young freelancer.
