So, you want to move to western Puerto Rico. Where will you find a house? Well, it is really hard to find a place to rent without being here. We tried so hard to find something before coming, but the landlords really want to just show the house in person. We arrived and looked at several places we had seen online and just jumped at one that was relatively close to where Ben works in Mayaguez.
You can look for housing online at several sites:
If you are serious about looking for a home to buy, here are two sites that are helpful:
- CRIM (Centro de Recaudación de Ingresos Municipales): you can zoom in to any property in PR and find information on the property, like taxes, lot size and owners. Many times the properties are not updated, but it is still a great place to find information and see lot lines.
- http://gis.jp.pr.gov/GeoLocalizador/index.htm: another site to find information on individual properties.
