In most areas of Spain, finding accommodation to rent or buy isn't difficult, providing that your requirements aren't too unusual. There are, however, a few exceptions. For example in major cities such as Madrid and Barcelona rented accommodation is in high demand and short supply, and rents can be astronomical. Accommodation accounts for around 25 per cent of the average Spanish family's budget, but can be up to 50 per cent in the major cities.

Property prices and rents in Spain vary considerably depending on the region and city. For example, an apartment renting for 240€ a month in Seville will cost 600€ a month in Madrid and Barcelona, and at least 400€ a month in most other northern cities.

The best way to start is to have a look in a newspaper/website called Segunda mano in the section "Immobiliaria / Pisos y Apartamentos" (http://www.segundamano.es). You will find a lot of ads and some good deals.

In addition, you can also consult:

  • http://www.compartepiso.com
  • http://www.dialogo.com
  • http://www.compartopiso.com
  • http://www.guiademadrid.com
  • It is very practical to have a street atlas of the area where you are going to live. Check out our books pages to order your maps. Even after you have found your home, you will find a street atlas invaluable for getting around.

    maps of rooms for rent
    Like the article above says, it's very practical to have a street atlas of the area you're going to live. I think it's even more practical a listings website that integrates the map, so that people offering rooms for rent can show visually where their flats are located to people that may not know the city. For these people, a map showing where each of the housing offers is located might be very useful.

    vivirama is such a website,

    http://www.vivirama.com

    It allows you to post and find room rentals (and other kinds of housing offers) not only in Madrid ( http://www.vivirama.com/spain/madrid/madrid ), but in virtually all cities of the world, and let's you do it visually on the maps of the cities.

    Hope you find it useful.

    Find an accommodation in agencies
    In addition to Segundamano, some agencies can find you an accommodation. E.g. Estate Agency Ali-Bey - C/Recoletos 11 - 1ºB can find a bedroom for 39 euros per mpnth in a share flate. Or they also offer the possibility to find a room in a Spanish family (including food, washing...) but it's a bit more expensive I think.
