Rental properties are widely available in Brazil. Prices vary throughout the country, with higher rents in large cities such as São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro.
Brazilian long term rental properties are usually unfurnished and without any white goods, lights or even showerheads fitted. Electricity and other services are also disconnected. Furnished apartments and houses for rent long term in Brazil are very rare (but can be found). Vacation and short term let apartments and houses in Brazil are always fully furnished and equipped.
Brazilian rental properties can generally be found online, through estate agents’ rental departments, in the classified sections of local papers or by word of mouth. Although several websites are useful to use, rentals are still easiest to find by looking offline.
In Brazil “for rent” signs may be displayed on the property itself, either hanging from an apartment window or attached to the front gate of a house, most commonly bearing the word Alugo. If the property is available for short let, normally during the summer tourist season in coastal towns and cities, the sign will read Alugo Temporado.
If the words tratar direto proprietário figure are on the sign, this signifies that the owner must be contacted and dealt with personally. In these cases, the strictly enforced rental requirements demanded by rental agencies may be by-passed and rental price and/or deposit can be negotiated.
In Brazil, there are several Estate Agents with national coverage, and properties can be searched for by value, location or by type on property websites (usually in Portuguese).
Searching on property websites are particularly useful for the sprawling big cities and the more difficult to access rural locations, as they can cut down the search time considerably.
Daily newspapers are also particularly useful, for example, the Folha de São Paulo in the state of São Paulo and the A Tarde newspaper in the state of Bahia has regularly updated websites that can be searched for rental properties. Search for imoveis in the classificados section.
