Apartment hunting

7 Jun

Yesterday I gave notice to my apartment complex that I’ll be moving. It’s finally starting to hit home that I’ll no longer be a resident of the US. Strange!

When I arrive to Brazil, Marcos and I will be staying in the in-law unit located on the property of his parents’ house in Lauro de Freitas. Their house and the neighborhood is incredible so we’re very lucky to have such a convenient accommodation while we search for apartments.

We’re both anxious to find a place to call our own and we’ve been browsing a local real estate website (www.portaldeimoveissalvador.com.br) for apartments in Itaigara. The neighborhood is located in southeastern zone of Salvador in the heart of the city. The area is very safe and surrounded by shopping centers, businesses, supermarkets, schools and bars.

It’s been a little frustrating searching for apartments online because the pictures don’t do justice to the amenities and space. It’s a good thing Marcos will be back in Salvador to review the apartments in person and pick out a few good options before my arrival.

I’ll soon be a city girl living in a high-rise apartment minutes from the beach!

      Kika, I’m so excited to be your neighbor, practice portuguese with you, and have grill parties at your house! Hopefully I can learn portuguese quickly or else I may not be able to entertain much at dinner 😉
