Rental Space Listings in CyberspaceNeed a place to stay? Try the cyberspace real estate listings at the official homepage of Seoul City Office (www.metro.seoul.kr). This web page will make it easier to find a room to rent.
The site enables searches by price, size, and location, making it possible find a place without having to visit a real estate agent. A commission fee table for brokerages is also posted on the site to prevent people from being overcharged.
However, it is impossible to make an online contract at this site, and it is recomended that people visit any place they think they may rent.
"Recently about 240,000 rental locations were identified and among those about 19,000 are available immediately," explained one official.
