Due to the high price of real estate in Sri Lanka, rental properties are a more convenient alternative for many. Expats find a house for rent in Sri Lanka a cheaper option compared to houses for sale in Sri Lanka due to tax reasons. Vacation rentals are on a short term basis and ideal for tourists. But those who move to the country for the long term can find fully furnished houses with a range of facilities in highly residential areas. Air conditioned bed rooms are important, especially due to the tropical weather and hot summer days. Rent in Sri Lanka varies based on the location. In the city centre the average price of a single story, 1 bedroom house for rent is likely to be Rs. 40-60,000 while outside the city centre the rent is much lower between Rs. 15-25,000. A 2 to 3 bedrooms’ house is ideal for an average family with dining and living rooms, house located close to local amenities. The surrounding facilities also affect the house rent.
Condominiums are one of the most affordable types of housing in the city. They are in high demand because they are more affordable than single-family detached homes. Due to their popularity, the vacancy rate in Brampton has been decreasing and therefore the price of condos has been rising. More people are selling their units, rather than renting them. These properties are expected to keep their popularity in the area even with the price increase. There hasn’t been as much construction of buildings with rental units, which has been a large contributor to the low vacancy rate and high prices in the area.

When you are signing the contract for an apartment, consider who will be living with you. If it is your entire family, then take into account all the needs and requirements of them. If you are going to get a flat-mate, make sure that it is someone that you would not mind having around all the time. Make sure that you are entitled to most common facilities that apartments offer such as housekeeping, pest control, and access to sports and shopping malls. On the other hand, obtaining a commercial property for rent in Colombo calls for a different mindset. Always look in terms of how much money you will gain or lose from your investment in the long run, rather than taking a decision based purely on the emotional aspect of that property.
