Living in Ecuador > Real Estate in Ecuador: Renting an Apartment

In the most expensive cities like Quito and Guayaquil, prices for a house or an apartment in the most expensive neighborhoods, range between $500 and $1000 a month. Of course it all depends on the size of the property and number of bedrooms. If you are looking for more comfortable prices, less posh areas of the city offer houses or apartments from $200 to $400 a month.

You can rent furnished or unfurnished houses and apartments. Landlords will always demand that you sign a contract for the months to be rented. You should verify the condition of the walls, electrical connections, water and the condition of the paint before signing and moving in. Almost all of the landlords require a check or payment of a deposit as a guarantee for any damage that occurs while you occupy the property. It is therefore necessary that you leave the apartment or house in the same conditions you received it in so that you can get your money back.


For students, we recommend that you choose houses that rent rooms. In addition to living with a family from the host country, this will help you get to know the way of life better and you will have a clean and private room, home cooking, telephone, television, laundry services, etc. All of this will make your stay more economical and enjoyable and you could learn the new language a little better.

The local newspapers like El Comercio in Quito and El Telégrafo in Guayaquil, have a daily section in the classifieds with detailed information about the houses and apartments available for rent. Also in the Cybercafes, Spanish schools and other places frequented by tourists, there are sometimes announcements of this type. Visiting the neighborhood you would like to live in looking for announcements of property for rent or sale is also a good way to find what you are looking for.
