Living in a Parisian apartment
in 2020 was eye-opening.
After close to a year of being confined to your classic Parisian apartment, it is no wonder you are restless, and discontent in your current living situation. Maybe there are little kids running in the apartment above you all day long while your working remotely in yoga pants, dressed up just enough with brushed hair and lipstick, in case a Zoom call catches you off guard. Maybe living 24/7 in a studio is making you a little crazy, or a bigger, fully equipped kitchen suddenly becomes crucial since you’re cooking all the time. Or, like many, you just want to be able to let your kids run around outback in the garden.
It’s safe to say that everyone in Paris has reconsidered their living situation since the pandemic rocked our worlds almost a year ago. Many don’t see a fit with the city lifestyle now that all its perks and charms have been chipped away. Others couldn’t imagine living anywhere else and hope that things will soon all return to normal, but even they have become intolerant of their current home situation and want something new.
But moving in adulthood is no small endeavor, especially if you have children. Just a quick search online is daunting and brings back nightmares of finding the home you are currently in.
Is it really worth the weeks and often months of searching and visiting homes?
