The first step is to find the company, which you are going to work, in Google Maps. It could be as simple as typing the address of the company and then click search.
After that, do try to list out all local residential areas you can find around the workplace from the Google Maps. This is to narrow the scope of search areas and ensure your prospect living place will not far away from your workplace.
When you have a list of the residential areas, you can start Google these areas with the key words of "area name + rent room or house buy".
4. Data Collection
After that, record all findings (e.g. contact information, location, and price) in a piece of paper or notepad.
5. Take Action
Next, you can start sending out email or sms to the owners to inquire further information (e.g. is the room still vacant?).
6. Live visit before making decision
Go and visit prospect room or house with few friends. And try to drive from the house to your workplace during working hour in advance if possible to experience real traffic condition from the place to your workplace.
