I'm currently looking for an apartment in Barcelona. I've been researching and there are far too many options for apartment search services / apartment booking sites.
I've tried to contact some of them through their listing site but many of their apartments agents seem to not want to entertain apartment viewing or visits.
Some questions if anyone could give tips: 1) Could you please give me tips in finding these apartments? 2) What websites / service agents are best to use? 3) How do I contact the landlords directly / Is there any online directory for the property owners? 4) Is it better to use apartment hunting services since many apartments have agency fees which are the same price? Is there anything I must consider in choosing one of these options?
