How do I find a place to live in Dalmatia?

We asked expats how they chose their neighborhood and found a place to live. They answered:

"Finding a place to live in Dalmatia involves several steps. First, you need to decide on the specific area in Dalmatia where you want to live. Dalmatia is a large region that includes major cities like Split and Dubrovnik, as well as smaller towns and islands. Once you've decided on a location, you can start your search for housing. There are several online platforms that list properties for rent or sale in Croatia, such as Njuskalo, Crozilla, and Realitica. These websites allow you to filter your search based on location, price, property type, and other factors. You can also use international real estate websites like Sotheby's International Realty or Christie's International Real Estate, which often list luxury properties in Dalmatia. Another option is to hire a local real estate agent. They can help you navigate the local market, arrange viewings, and negotiate contracts. Make sure to choose a licensed agent who is registered with the Croatian Chamber of Economy. If you're planning to rent, be aware that most landlords require a deposit, usually equivalent to one or two months' rent. You should also be prepared to pay agency fees if you're using a real estate agent, which are typically around one month's rent. Before signing any contract, make sure you fully understand the terms and conditions. If the contract is not in your native language, consider hiring a translator or a lawyer to help you understand it. Finally, once you've found a place and signed a contract, you'll need to register your residence with the local police within a few days of moving in. This is a legal requirement in Croatia. Remember, finding a place to live in a new country can take time and patience, so start your search well in advance of your planned move date," remarked one foreigner who made the move to Dalmatia.
