Once you've settled in one of Belgrade’s neighborhoods, you’ll need to find suitable accommodation.

Local Belgraders normally find accommodation for rent by word of mouth, newspapers, and social media, but all of these ads are usually in Serbian. Luckily, there are plenty of English-speaking real-estate agents with easy-to-use websites, where you can browse through photographs and details of all available apartments. City Expert is a new online-only agency with no fees for tenants, or you can choose a traditional real-estate agency for more in-depth help on finding a flat – including the possibility of negotiating lower rent. The following real-estate agents all have websites with apartment ads in English and several currency options to give you a better idea of their prices.

  • short term stay

    If you’d like to get to know the city a bit better before choosing a permanent apartment or house, there are lots of short-term options to choose from. Belgrade has many newly renovated apartments that are furnished with everything you need to find your feet in the capital.

  • long term stay

    The following agencies are specialized in offering services for long term renting. Most likely, the minimum stay would typically be 6 months, although a majority of apartments offer one-year contracts. 

    Other popular means of finding a place to reside for a longer period of time include the websites 4zida.rs, halooglasi.com, and nekretnine.rs. It’s recommended that you consult a local in order to look through the ads, as they are all written in Serbian.

  • useful information

    When you see a monthly rental price in Belgrade, be aware that this usually excludes bills. Your landlord will pass on all bills, including the ones for electricity, TV and internet, gas, water, etc. as they arrive, and you can either pay him/her directly or pay the bills yourself at the post office. This means you do not have to set up any new accounts in your name, which is very useful if you’re not sure how long you will be staying in the city. For visa or bank purposes, your house contract should be enough to prove your official residence in Serbia.
