Accordingly, you can find everything on it, from indoor plants to housing and cars. is the first place everyone turns to when looking for a house or apartment. The site has convenient filters that allow you to select the desired area, number of rooms, type of building, area and budget. There is an application, it is more convenient to use.

This site is called the local analogue of the Russian “CIAN”. Very detailed information is provided about each object, including professional photographs and a full description of the surrounding infrastructure. There are a lot of advertisements, and if you don’t want to look through them, you can call and describe your wishes to the operator. Based on your requests, suitable options will be selected.

The service provides information about available real estate from both owners and realtors. It is possible to familiarize yourself with the rental conditions (children, animals) and the availability of amenities (air conditioning, heating system, parking space, etc.) directly in the advertisement.

Real estate agencies

PROS: assistance in choosing a convenient option, concluding a contract.

CONS: additional costs for the services of realtors.

There are several large real estate agencies that have websites and try to fill them with comprehensive and up-to-date information. The choice there is usually wider than on the platforms listed above, because most of the apartments are quickly rented out and simply do not reach regular ad sites. Here are just a few of these resources:

You will find more real estate agencies in our catalog.

On the one hand, when renting an apartment through real estate agencies, you certainly pay for their services. On the other hand, specialists help you choose a convenient option in a short time and draw up agreement, which will protect you from a number of troubles. Some tenants prefer to pay a little more, but sleep peacefully. And be prepared for a huge number of messages from the agent, which, unfortunately, do not always fall within the requests you voiced.

Telegram channels

PROS: always at hand, you can quickly respond to a fresh ad, quick communication with the landlord.

CONS: lack of search filters, cases of fraud and fees for realtor services are not excluded.

Telegram has many channels where fresh advertisements from owners and agents are regularly uploaded. Plus, the relocants themselves publish previously rented apartments if they move out ahead of schedule and don’t want to lose the deposit. — the official channel of the real estate portal; – a good database of apartments and houses in Yerevan; — another real estate base; — purchase, sale and rental of apartments with their own real estate base; - apartments for sale or rent.

Word of mouth

PROS: the opportunity to see the apartment right away, the absence of overpayments to intermediaries, the opportunity to learn all the nuances of living in this area first-hand, a fun pastime (perhaps you will be invited for coffee).

CONS: can spend too much time, lack of contract, risks.

This method is still actively used today. Armenians are very sociable people. If you go into any courtyard in Yerevan, you will certainly see pensioners playing backgammon or drinking coffee. After a polite greeting, they are happy to make contact and talk about their area, the features of the yard, or complain about utility workers. If someone wants to rent out housing in this yard, then the locals will most likely be in the know. Perhaps their instructions “Go into the entrance, go to the third floor, turn left and ask for Ashot” will be your lucky ticket to a comfortable apartment without intermediaries and overpayments. Also, during a taxi ride, you can ask the driver if he knows anyone with an empty apartment

Cooperation with a realtor

PROS: do not waste time monitoring advertisements, a rental agreement is drawn up, and viewing of the apartment is negotiated for you.

CONS: the fee for realtor services is 50-100% of the rental price.

The Move2Armenia catalog contains contacts of verified realtors, which you can contact.

You can come across realtors while calling owners from advertisements. Agents will tell you not only about the housing you have chosen, but also offer other options.

In a nutshell, describe your main criteria for the desired housing. Name the area, budget, number of rooms, availability of amenities, your special wishes and... wait for the call. Sometimes apartments become available quickly and realtors simply don’t waste time posting ads. They use their database to check who is suitable for housing and call those directly interested. In this case, there is a chance to quickly view and rent housing on the same day.

Often, a realtor selects several convenient options at once, negotiates with apartment owners about viewing times, and even picks up the tenant. You will be taken to apartments and shown them until you make your final decision. The method is very convenient because it allows you to find the most optimal option for you in the shortest possible time. The services of a realtor are not free and will cost you 50-100% of the cost of one month of rent.

Unfortunately, not all realtors work in good faith. They may specifically offer contracts with conditions that are inconvenient for you, insist on increasing the cost after a while, etc. On the channel created "Black list of realtors". Study it so as not to fall for a dishonest person.

Each method of searching for housing has its own advantages and disadvantages. We recommend that you try several to get a complete picture of the real estate market in Armenia and find your dream home.

    It seems that real estate and rent in Yerevan and throughout Armenia, for example Gyumri, has risen in price at times. Apparently, this happened due to the influx of Russian citizens.

    Interested in renting apartments in Yerevan. If the ad has a price, is it possible to bargain? In general, has rent increased much compared to last year, what is the forecast for the future?

      You can and sometimes even need to bargain. You will probably be given concessions if you plan to rent for a long time and can assure the landlord that you will not cause any trouble.
      Rents increased significantly in the fall of 2022 and have dropped occasionally since then. As far as I know, this is typical for the real estate market in Armenia, that prices hold for a long time and do not fall.
