Buenos Aires Apartment Rentals – The Resources You’ll Need to Find What You’re Looking For

Apartments Buenos Aires — By

Apartment rentals in Buenos Aires are BIG business and there are many different resources you can use to find one that works for you. Here is a list of some of the best sources for finding temporary, long-term, luxury, and vacation apartment rentals.

OLX – Free Online Classifieds – As is obvious from the title, this is an online classifieds site, and the apartment rentals section is used frequently by Argentines and foreigners alike. It is usually in Spanish, so if you don´t speak Spanish, it may be a problem. Be sure to select the type of apartment rental that interests you and the neighborhood you want to live in.

Craigslist – Free Online Classifieds – another online classifieds site, though not set up as well as OLX. It has a good selection of apartments of all types, but tends to be geared towards tourists, and therefore prices are usually higher. Ads are almost always posted in English though, making it easier to navigate for some people.

Solo Dueños – Probably the best site for looking for temporary and long-term rentals in Buenos Aires because you are dealing directly with the owners. This means less mark-up which you find with the other websites, which are usually run by real estate companies (known as Inmobiliarias). The website is well set-up, but only in Spanish.

Websites Specializing in Temporary Apartment Rentals

There are many different websites from companies that offer temporary apartment rentals.  You will even find the same apartments listed on different websites, as the owners will list their site in as many places as possible.  Most sites work in a very similar way, some have service that is better than others.  Some accept credit cards for reservations, others only accept cash.

Here are a couple good ones, but you can find many more just by doing a search on Google for temporary apartment rentals.

Buenos Aires Habitat – they specialize in higher end, luxury apartments.

4Rent Argentina – you can find everything from cheap to expensive apartments on 4Rent.

You can also search Google for Apartment Rentals in Buenos Aires, and you will find a lot of sites renting out temporary, luxury and vacation apartments. Most of the ones you find will be very expensive, but if you are looking for a high-end place, this is a good option.

If you are already in Buenos Aires, you can go to the Inmobiliarias, which are located all over the place. I don’t recommend them, because they charge a very large fee to help you rent a place. However, they do make the search process easy if you are willing to pay the extra money.

Clarin and La Nacion Classifieds – these are the two major newspapers in Buenos Aires. Both sites are well set-up and easy to use, though La Clarín does a better job of separating the apartment rentals into the basic groups, such as temporary rentals, vacation rentals, etc. Both sites are only in Spanish, so be prepared to speak Spanish if you contact any of them.

    For the long term rentals, you mentioned the garantia. Is this required also for renting a room? On OXL, I’m seeing a room for AR$800 with no mention of a garantia or anything (not even 1st/last/deposit). Would you assume that ads that don’t mention a garantia are made by those that aren’t requiring it?

    Thanks

    Hey Adam,

    Great comments :) As for the garantia for a room, that is rarely required. It is usually only required if you rent an entire apartment. Also, many Argentines rent out temporary rentals, which are furnished apartment rentals with everything included and that don’t usually require a garantia.

    Well many of the owners I know that rent rooms ask for a garantia also. Its something that even more is required by owners, specially when renting throught an agency, maybe directly with an owner is not that necessary but and agency for sure will ask for it. Thats why is very important to check the dates on the contract when paying a deposit.

    Hi guys, thanks for the resources, i thought i would leave my personal recommendation for renting in Buenos Aires.
    My partner and I have been renting apartments in the city for 7 months through Baires Apartments.
    After having difficulties with communication, and dissatisfaction with the apartments and agents of other agencies, we contacted Baires Apartments.

    From the beginning they were very helpful and informative as we were new to the city. Contracts are legal and all transparent, they are efficient with property maintenance and easily contactable.
    We have stayed in two different properties, one near Plaza san martin and the other in recoleta. The apartments are fully self contained, very clean and comfortable and in convenient locations. Also we found them more economic for what we received.

    Dealing with this company has been a pleasure and after such a good experience, we couldn’t recommend any other company to organise your stay in Buenos Aires.

    Please see their website at http://www.apartmentsbaires.com.ar

    I have no connection with this company, other than living in their properties. Good luck :)

    We rented this very delicate and beautiful studio-apartment. Location and privacy were our priorities. This unique apartment matched all our expectations. Just in the right place. Close to public transportation, and at the same time in a very top neighborhood. Pool and gym are a plus for free. Wife enjoyed both while I was at work. Only good things to say about this little gem! I Highly recommend it either business or pleasure!

    Buenos Aires Habitat was awful. Booked a 3 bedroom apartment in Palermo South. Third bedroom was a closet, pool empty, broken furniture. Betty at Buenos Aires Habitat was unhelpful and defensive. Never again.
