Among the main advantages of choosing to share a flat are the “freedom and space” which they enjoy but, above all, the price, since “this option is cheaper than student residences, although this savings margin depends on the province.”

Thus, Barcelona heads the price ranking at the gates of the new course, with rooms with an average cost of 352 euros in August 2023. After it, Madrid, one of the regions that welcomes the most students from other provinces and countries, has rooms that, on average, have a price of 315 euros also in August of this same year.

To avoid being scammed when renting an apartment or a room, Milanuncios recommends review the wording of the ad, since if the way it is written “is striking due to its poor writing, looking like a bad translation or an automated text, the ad could have been published by a bot”; and distrust advertisers who do not provide their data in the corresponding sections.

The platform also advises future tenants Do not share information such as ID, personal accounts or bank details and that they distrust those landlords who urge contact outside the portal channels, such as WhatsApp or by phone.

He also points out that you should avoid paying in advance or paying for the room reservation “whenever possible, especially if you have not signed any type of documentation that formalizes the rental”; and asks to verify that the images of the accommodation do not coincide with another result on the internet, since they could be using photographs of apartments that do not belong to them or be generated by Artificial Intelligence.
