Hello texkourgan !
Your post is quite old but maybe this tip will be quite useful for others: I just launch the first French platform which enables you to visit and rent your flat 100% online. Having lived in 10 different cities myself within the last 10 years, I decided to build my own real estate start-up to make life easier for expats
The concept is quite simple: you can visit as many flats in 3D as you want on www.flatlooker.com
and if you get a crush for an accommodation you can directly upload your files online and even sign your bail online.
Hope this might help some of you, we only work in Paris
right now... But it's only the beginning !
