Looking for a small flat in BA, for 1 year period
Posted December 17th, 2012 - 12:49 pm by from Belgrade, Serbia (Permalink)
Hi everyone,

Since May 2013 my girlfriend and I will be staying in BA for couple of months, most probably a whole year. For that period we need a small, not too expensive flat. In order not to be too expensive, we are looking for nothing special in terms of shape and condition, and it doesn't have to be in the most popular area, but also not toooooo far from the city center, if possible. I guess up to 300 euro including all costs would be fine for us (is this realistic for BA?).

Thank you in advance for any information and help, it is mostly appreciated.

BR,
Milo

Hi Ale, Vuke & Ciro:)

Thank you so much for your message and help. I can already see that I've been too optimistic with my cost expectations. Though it is really hard to believe that flats are so expensive in BA, it would be easier to find a cheap flat in Berlin:(

Are these prices normally negotiable, e.g. if I pay some months in advance? I see that 'alquier temporario' is much more expensive than 24 months, looks like I am in the same position as someone who only rents for a single month (although I want to stay 12 months)?

Thanks again for your help:)

All the best wishes for 2013!

Milo

Hi Melisa,

Thank you for your advices and your support!
This craigslist BA really looks interesting, so we will start looking in more detail some 30 days before we arrive. Now I will try to get as much information as possible regarding the approximate costs to be expected, locations, websites to visit etc.

Best,
Milo

Hi Maria,

Thank you for your reply!

Your apartment looks very nice, it is pretty much what we are looking for. We will come to BA most probably in May or June and I see that you are already renting it now: so shall I contact you than, to see if it is available? And if it is, could we also rent it for a longer period, like up to one year?

All the best wishes for 2013!

Milo
