Colombia Apartment Search Engines

When I’m looking for an apartment abroad, I normally like to start with the country-specific apartment search engines and portals. Here are the most popular ones.

  • Viva RealViva Real is a good site for renting, buying or selling real estate. You can find some pretty decent apartment options there. I’ve used their Brazil-based site before for searching for apartments in Rio De Janeiro.
  • Encuentra24You will find a lot of Colombian apartment rentals on this site. It has a classifieds section too where you can find other items for purchase.
  • Apts Colombia: This site has an ugly interface, but the apartment listings are legit. I’ve known a lot of fellow bloggers who have used this site when searching for somewhere to live in Colombia.
  • Comparto Apto: If you are looking for cheap rental options, check out Comparto Apto, a site that specializes in apartment sharing.

Classifieds and Real Estate Agencies

You can often find some hidden gems if you dig through the classifieds and real estate agency websites. Not all the apartment listings will be from reputable sources, so you have to pay careful attention to any listing that looks too good to be true.

  • Bogota Rentals: Some good deals often pop up on this Facebook page.
  • Craigslist: Pioneers in the internet classifieds space.
