In which I break the #1 Commandment of Every Moscow Realtor: “Thou Shalt Not Teach Anyone About The Secret of CIAN”.
CIAN is the site that contains every available property in Moscow. Here’s a tutorial on how to use it.
But here’s the problem with CIAN:
- It’s not in English- that can be easily remedied through Google Translate.
- Not all agents speak English.
- Not all landlords are foreigner-friendly.
It’s the third point that is the most difficult. You can easily call 20+ listings before you will find a landlord that is ready to work with foreigners.
That’s why Expat Flat offers you Moscow’s foreigner-friendly landlords. And Expat Flat is now working on a model where foreigner-friendly landlords can offer their properties on the Expat Flat site themselves.
Check it out to learn the easy way of finding a foreigner-friendly landlord in Moscow.
