Help finding rental property Lisbon
We are Americans looking to relocate. Our question relates to getting realtor help to find an apartment. Here in the states realtors tend not to help folks looking for long term rentals (e.g. 1 year) because there just isn’t enough compensation to make it work. Can we really get realtor assistance to find an apartment in Lisbon or does that only occur on episodes of House Hunters International?
Unlike Carolyn K we assumed we would need to find a short term rental (e.g. 30 day AirBNB) while looking for a more permanent place In Lisbon. Thanks in advance for your comments.
Hi @ncw... welcome to the forum.
I have moved your thread to create a new topic so that it is easier for people to find and offer you answers.
There are many companies that offer this type of service but aren't actually the real estate agent itself. They will do the groundwork for you and work for you to find your dream place.
Expats Portugal work closely with Pieter from enjoy-portugal.com so I would definitely reach out to him. If you sign up as a Premium Member on our site, he offers a discount for his services too. We have a webinar coming up with him on the 3rd September that you can find in our Calendar section of this site.
I can also recommend Camilla from Housesmart and Xana from A Lisbon Life. Both fellow Australians (like me) and understand the real estate market. Let me know if you would like their contact details.
Hi, Astrid. We're big on 'shopping around' to find the right contact for a rental flat or apt. Would you be so kind as to email me the emails for Xana and Camilla? And we will certainly contact Pieter first at EnjoyPortugal.com. We are so happy we found your site: What a tremendous resource you have here!
Regards, Janet & Amos
You can reach Camilla at email@example.com

They are both friends of mine so let them know I have suggested you make contact.
