apartment rental resources?


New Member
I will be arriving in Santiago this weekend for a six-month stay to conduct graduate research, and I am looking for a furnished apartment during this time. I have arranged some temporary accommodations, but would like to find a permanent place before too long.

Does anyone have any recommendations regarding where to look (e.g., newspaper advertisements, online resources, rental agencies)? I've explored a couple resources online from the United States, but without much success.

My Spanish is not very good, so any English-language resources are especially appreciated. But all recommendations are welcome!

This is something for Ivar......I'm sure that he will give a reaction!

Hi there,

I have been away for a few days, so I hope you get this before you leave.

About resources in English... there are none (as far as I know). This is one of the reasons I started this site, to at least give some info in English.

To find flats for rent, the local paper is the best resource. La Voz de Galica or El Correo Gallego. Don't think they have anything online... you could check. http://www.lavoz.es or http://www.elcorreogallego.es

Alternatively you could rent flats from Real estate agencies (Inmobliaria). Most of them offer places for sale and for rent. The problem is that almost none of them are online. One of them is Euroviviendas. They are located just where the park meets old town, on the corner of one of those buildings. You'll see a man selling lottery tickets outside their door. They actually have a website as well, but will have more to offer if you step into their office. Remember, no English so practice some key words before you enter.

Very few speak English here, but if you try to speak castellano they are very helpful...

If you need more info, send me an e-mail off the board.
