    Asking about parking

    I'd like to ask about parking around real estate properties. What is better:

    "What is the parking situation in the area?" , "How is parking organised in the area?". Other suggestions?

    The second one just doesn't sound right.

    Welcome to the forums, viktoriqmv.

    You're right. The first one is fine.

    Re: Asking about parking

    Thank you so much, Rover!

    Could you please tell me if the second one is correct or does it sound odd to your ear as well?

    Cheers,
    Viktoriq

    Re: Asking about parking

    The second one is grammatically correct but unnatural.
