Moving to an apto in Pocitos

Posted by urufish on June 2, 2007

 beckysbuilding.jpg  Hopefully, this is the last installment on the apartment.  As you know, we went looking for an apto a few weeks ago.  Found one we liked.  Negotiated our way to the front of the line.  Signed the deal.  Got the keys.  Started to move a couple of days ago. 

The lease is for one year with a one year option.  The rent is $6K a month (that’s pesos folks).  The Gastos Comunes (common expenses) are supposed to be $1200.  That’s just over U$S300/month for a 45m, one bedroom with separate kitchen, laundry area, balcony and a combined living/dining room in a quiet, residential area 2 blocks from the beach.  The hot water tank is included.  You provide everything else, eg. drapes, fixtures, stove/fridge, washing machine and laundry sink.    There was a working phone in the apto which will be kept in the owners name.  We pay the monthly bill. 

For this money you get a 2nd floor apartment in a 35 year old building with  2 elevators and 24 hour portero.  You dont get heat or parking. 

My daughter moves in on Monday.. 

Here are some pictures….
