I think so. That would be council rent not private.

Where possible people buy...usually with a big loan.

Do you think that it would be easy to rent an apartment about 50m2?

A 50m2 1-bedroom apartment is pretty much the most popular size for a Polish apartment and should rent easily...depending, of course, on all the usual factors (condition, location etc).

According to a recent report from szybko.pl, a Polish property portal, the average rent in Gdansk for a one-bedroom apartment in the third quarter of 2007 is 1439 zloty, up 34% since the start of 2006

This Polish girl is buying her own home (in the United States.) It's one of the best investments I've ever made. There's no way in the world I'd waste money, by renting a home.

Yes i know its a total waste of money to rent, but some people have to for various reasons.
For me its a good way to make a little more money & a good investment for the future.

Hi No 14, in response to your question, I am Australian and have lived in Krakow for 4.5 years. I do work in property here, but not in Gdansk. I too still rent in Krakow, but hopefully only for another year. Two years ago, together with some friends, I bought a loft in Krakow. We have been stuck in planning and neighbour disputes since buying it, but now looking likely that we will be able to build in spring 2008, so fingers crossed I will soon be living in my own apartment in Krakow soon!
