To be honest, I expected the process of finding housing options in Tallinn to be fast and stress-free, compared to how it is in Aarhus – very difficult (high demand and low supply) and incredibly expensive. However, I must admit that in Tallinn, it wasnâ€™t as easy as I imagined it to be. On the two major portals mentioned above, the good-looking apartments, which are also reasonably priced are rented out in a matter of minutes, so you have to be really quick in order to grab the best offers. In addition, most of the ads require paying a brokerâ€™s fee equivalent to one month of rent, one month of pre-paid rent and one month of deposit. It is cheaper compared to Aarhus, where it is normal to pay 3 months of pre-paid rent and 3 months of deposit, but I still consider it quite expensive. Thatâ€™s why I recommend keeping an eye on the Facebook groups, as the ads are usually straight from the owner (no brokerâ€™s fee), so you could spare some money.
Have you found housing in Estonia through other tools? Let me know in the comments and I will improve this list.
