Top 5 Search Tools for Real Estate in Puerto Rico
Finding real estate in Puerto Rico can be a challenge if you don't know the market, the language, or the resources available. Luckily, the San Juan Realty Group has published a blog post that explains Top 5 Search Tools used in Puerto Rico and how to use them to get the best results.
When searching for properties in Puerto Rico the first thing you need to understand is that your search will require you to thoroughly browse multiple websites, each with its own peculiarities. The five most important websites for real estate purchases in Puerto Rico are:
The blog post goes into greater detail about the benefits and drawbacks of each platform. For example, did you know that Clasificados Online is like the Puerto Rican version of Craigslist, with over 45,000 property listing and almost 12,000 rentals listed? It's the largest property database on the island but lacks some of the key real estate search features you want when looking for a home. And the spanish-only copy can be hard to interpret correctly, even for Google Translate.
There are more advanced options, like Point2Homes and Zillow, but it's worth knowing that they are still pretty limited in Puerto Rico and have a smaller (but more accurate and user-friendly) inventory.
