Yea most "tourist apartments" are 6 month fixed leases. Some are in dollars some in pesos. Craigslist is your best bet in my opinion. Or Airbnb. Keep in mind on craigslist you have to likely pay 1 month rent commission to the real estate agent. Some are owner direct with no comission. In my experience Airbnb is more expensive on a monthly basis, but no upfront commission. So a trade off that may end up equaling out to some degree. My personal preference is craigslist but to each their own.Thanks for replying.
Can I rent a place for 6 months as a tourist? Won't be doing much, taking long holiday.
There are a few I think. But you are going to end up paying a lot more money.Following, I have been here 3 weeks now and am yet to secure an apartment. I was opting for a 1 month lease because I wasn't exactly sure where I wanted to live. But since I've already been here 3 weeks of the original 4 I wanted to stay I have mostly figured that out and now I am considering looking for a 6 month lease instead.
The issues I have are I don't speak Spanish yet. I have had several people call me, and myself call several people however they don't speak English and when they realise I don't speak Spanish they just hang up.
Any recommendations for websites that cater to expats in BA who don't speak Spanish and want a short term lease?
