Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take to find an apartment with Sojoourn?

On average we need 21 days to find your new place. The duration of your home search can vary a lot as there are many factors that are out of Sojoourn's control (the housing market, your application, the timing, the luck...).

Can I also look for accommodations on my own?

Of course you can, if you find something that you like, feel free to send it to us, but we're here to save you around fifty hours of research. We have built up a well working system, you can let us manage the research entirely. You have a better chance of getting the apartment through us, because as we're professionals, agencies and private owners trust us more.

How can I stay in touch with Sojoourn during the search?

After signing a Home Search Contract with us, we will start a group discussion on WhatsApp. We will send you the offers we found and you will be able to ask us all the questions you may have. We remain at your disposal 7 days a week from Monday to Sunday, 9h-18h.

Does Sojoourn provide assistance to subscribe for utility (electricity, gas, water, internet ...) contracts?

Absolutely, our service goes beyond just finding a place for you. Although, this assistance is not included in our basic service fee. We charge €50 for each utility contract arrangement. In some cases we can provide you with a special discount at the providers.
