I had to look up Schengen. Fascinating idea. Your brother might have some luck going through one of the apartment search companies. Landlords list their available properties with these services and pay them a commission when someone signs a lease. The nice thing about doing it this way is that the renter can provide a list of parameters (desired rent, geographical area, pets/no pets, smoking/non-smoking, etc.) and the service returns a list of properties that meet your qualifications. As for cars, depending on how much money he has to spend, your best deals are usually on lease turn-ins. These will generally have fairly low mileage, and the dealership will have checked them out and refurbed them before offering them for resale.
The Schengen thing is quite handy, I guess. Perhaps naming it after the little place where they made the treaty wasn’t the wisest move PR-wise… You’ll normally see it when filling out the visa form… and you only need one visa for all those countries.
Let’s hope my brother works those things out.
