The most efficient way is to network.
After that, using a real estate professional is best.
Sometimes driving in the neighborhood you want to live in will help you also.

Hi there Paola,

To list a home for sale as a real estate professional, you can go here to get started:

The process should be fairly self explanatory, but let me know if I can help you out!

Thanks Paola,

Hi there Paola,

The most efficient way to find a rental in Cambridge by yourself is to use our mobile app.

Once you have your search criteria set up, our app will send you a push notification to make sure you're always first to hear of a new property. Being the first to know, means you'll be far more likely to secure a new house or apartment, especially in a rental hot bed like Cambridge.

The most efficient way to find a rental is to contact a real estate agent. You have to be quick because properties go very fast. It's a complex and dynamic business where the agents spend years to develop the relationships with the landlords, so they know what the expectations are. Almost always you need to pay a full fee (one month of a rental value) to the agent who works with you, but in return you'll get the apartment you want. Call me if you wish, and I'd be happy to accommodate your criteria and find your a good place. Lilia, 617-901-7413, ePlace real estate.
