Our Story: A glimpse into the journey and achievements of Hangzhou PLUS Housing since 2006.


From a humble beginning to becoming a highly reputed name in the Hangzhou expat housing industry, our story at Hangzhou PLUS Housing is marked by dedication, resilience, and a constant pursuit of excellence.


The roots of Hangzhou PLUS Housing go back to 2006, when our founder, Robert Hu, embarked on an entrepreneurial journey into the foreign housing rental service industry. Along with his partners, Robert laid the foundation of Hangzhou Hunter Real Estate, which soon made its mark due to its customer-centric approach and commitment to service quality.


However, Robert envisioned creating a more specialized service platform that catered specifically to the needs of foreigners in Hangzhou. This vision led to the birth of Hangzhou PLUS Housing in 2010. A new venture but built on years of experience and insights, Hangzhou PLUS Housing quickly rose to prominence, carving a niche for itself in Hangzhou's real estate landscape.


Today, we are proud to look back at an enriching 18-year journey led by Robert and his dynamic team. Our growth story is intertwined with the development and transformation of Hangzhou's housing market itself. From the early days of Jindu Huating, Green Garden, and Deep Blue Plaza to the current era of Aodi International and Imperial Mansion, we have been at the forefront, assisting expatriates in finding their perfect homes amidst the changing trends.


Our understanding of the evolving needs of the foreign community in Hangzhou, coupled with our deep knowledge of the local real estate market, has enabled us to serve thousands of expatriates to their utmost satisfaction. Over the years, we have garnered immense appreciation and high praise, not only for our core housing rental services but also for the comprehensive range of related services we provide.


The journey of Hangzhou PLUS Housing is not just a business story; it's a testament to our unwavering commitment to our mission of making every expatriate's housing journey in Hangzhou smooth, comfortable, and rewarding. It's a narrative of our steadfast dedication to our clients, our adaptability to market changes, and our promise to continue serving with the same passion and integrity that has brought us here.


As we look ahead, we remain excited about the future, driven by our ambition to constantly better our services and create even more memorable experiences for our clients. Here's to many more years of successful journeys and happy homes!

Living in Hangzhou

Hangzhou, a city famed for its stunning natural beauty and bustling urban environment, presents an attractive option for expatriates from across the globe. While it promises a rich cultural experience and modern conveniences, adjusting to life in a new city can often be a challenging process. At Hangzhou PLUS Housing, we want to make your transition smooth and enlightening.


Understanding the Housing Market


Hangzhou’s real estate market can be quite unique. Most landlords require a deposit of one month's rent and three months' rent in advance, a norm you might not be used to. The cost of renting an apartment in Hangzhou varies greatly depending on the location and age of the property. Newly constructed or well-located apartments are typically more expensive. However, with our extensive experience and deep understanding of the Hangzhou rentals market, we can guide you to find a home that fits your budget and lifestyle.


Pet-Friendly Accommodations


If you plan on bringing a pet, be prepared that it might make your housing search a bit more challenging. However, at Hangzhou PLUS Housing, we understand your furry friend is an integral part of your family. We are well-equipped to provide assistance with pet documentation and can recommend pet-friendly neighborhoods and accommodations.




Hangzhou's advanced taxi apps make commuting in the city a breeze, so even if you live in a somewhat remote area, transportation won't be an issue. However, should you decide to drive, we are here to provide driver's license application assistance and car rental services.


Home Amenities


Most apartments in Hangzhou do not come with ovens or dishwashers, and heating is usually provided by air conditioning rather than underfloor heating. Understanding these nuances can help you manage your expectations and adapt to your new home more quickly.




One of the many reasons why expats love living in Hangzhou is the city's safe environment. Even late at night, safety isn't a major concern. It’s another reason why Hangzhou is a fantastic place to call home.


Be Aware of Scams


Lastly, it's crucial to stay vigilant during your housing search. If a rental property seems too good to be true, it probably is. With Hangzhou PLUS Housing, you can rest assured knowing you are in trustworthy hands.


As you embark on your journey in Hangzhou, remember that you’re not alone. At Hangzhou PLUS Housing, we are committed to providing a full suite of services to ensure you find your perfect home and settle in with ease. From understanding Hangzhou apartment rentals to navigating the city's lifestyle, we are with you every step of the way.
