Are you planning on living here for a couple of years or more? In order to rent most apartments you need to make a two year commitment. In order to stay here for two years you need to qualify for a DNI. If you can't qualify for a DNI, you will probably need to stay in an Airb&b or rent a room in a shared apartment. You are probably better off renting something short term to see if you like living here in any particular barrio before signing a long term rental contract.I am planning on moving to Buenos Aires in June or July to teach english, but many of the neighborhoods I've seen in articles as the best ones for expats appear touristy and expensive. I was wondering if anyone had any advice on some more middle class or cheaper neighborhoods that would be good safe areas to find an apartment in. Also, if you have any pitfalls to avoid or general advice that you'd like to share I would love to hear it.
