I will have a look for you and post the information here. Beginning of April won't be a problem finding a small apartment near the sea.

Hi Kirk,

The first question is do you have a visa to live and work in Argentina? Opening a business here is not easy, and certainly very difficult without the right documentation.

Renting an apartment is also very difficult if you do not have someone to guarantee the rent over a 24 month period. The person who becomes your guarantor will need to have an apartment in Mar del Plata of an equivalent value or higher to the one you are going to rent. Unless you know someone here, it will be almost impossible, unless you are prepared to pay a year's rent in advance and even then it's still not so easy, as owner's prefer a guarantor and in many cases salary slips as well.

Shop rentals have gone up a lot and you will probably look to pay (at today's rental rates) around 2000 pesos (around 600 USD) for a very very small shop in a nice area. Do you know how many coffees places there are in Mar del Plata? Probably not, as it is full of them, some small and basic to many wonderfully upmarket coffee shops. I can't imagine a foreigner opening another one.


Renting a small apartment will cost around 1000 pesos (300 USD)a month. With regard to furniture, you can find cheap stuff, but of poor quality. Quality goods will cost the same or more than in Canada. All apartments come with a gas stove and in some cases a fridge.

I hope this information is useful and sorry to sound so negative. Are you a French speaking Canadian or are you from another country originally?

Regards

Michelle

PS How do you know about Mar del Plata?

I own an apartment in Mar del Plata
It is on Avda Colon with a side view of the ocean.
I was planning to do painting and cleaning in April as
it has been rented all summer.
Let me know if you are interested, I will provide you with the
information for the real estate company that manages it.
The apartment is two short blocks from the beach, 10th floor.

I recommend either Palermo or Recoleta for you... Studios anywhere from 500 usd to 750. One bedroom nice 750 and up , those are the rents today. While there especially at night use radio taxis, call them !!! If you speak spanish makes matters much easier. If you don't besides speaking to the dispatcher of radio taxi have it written down for the driver where to take you. Premium Radio taxi is great , the drivers are actually owners of the taxi , not renting it per day. They are wonderful.
Telephone number: 4374-6666 locally.

Big city just like all cities eyes open and ears also... Be safe. Buenos Aires is a great city with many friendly and wonderful individuals. Just be cool and not flashy (heavy jewelry) unless you go Radio taxi door to door at night..

Hi Lori,

You need to post on the Buenos Aires forum as you will get more responses to your questions, especially as I don't actually live in Buenos Aires.

Thanks to Michael for noticing the post and responding.

Regards

Michelle

I do respond to individuals based on my experience in Buenos Aires and being a educated consumer don't want to violate Roberto's rules not being a commerial forum.

So, I write you direct with things.. I believe we are here to help each other.

Thank you all for contributing.

Lori, starting a thread on renting in Buenos Aires may be a good idea! There are a few members here who own rental services. But you can also check on Google as their index lists many rental services. In general, Retiro, Puerto Madero and Recoleta may be more expensive than Palermo or San Telmo. Meal prices may vary depending on what you are looking for. The good news is that there is a huge number of food establishments, many being economical even if you were to eat red meat.
