    try taking a look at some of the properties offered on some of the czech real estate sites - is the "biggest" one i know of - but there are others - if you use the english option though, i've herad that not all offers are listed - so use the czech option if possible....

    I have just noticed an ad in the local rental agency offering a 2+1 flat in Olomouc, remodelled and partly furnished (bed, wardrobes) for 8,000 Czk/month (utilities included). However, it was the lowest price I have seen here; usually, it is around 10,000 for an unfurnished flat here(depends on the neighborhood and the conditions - satellite, lift, parking etc.).

    Hi jerseyczech,

    We're also on the hunt for a flat in Olomouc. More after a 2+kk, so something a bit smaller! Here's a little list of some of the agencies I've come across. Their sites will give you a good idea of what kind of prices to expect, but I'd reckon on around 1.5-2 mill czk for a 2+1 or 3+1 in a panelák, and anything up to 3.5 million czk in a new development or in an old building in the centre of town.

    There are plenty of others, but I think I've included most of the big names. Not used any of them yet, so I can't make any specific recommendations.

    Although I will use this opportunity to plug Nathan, at We used his services to buy our cottage near Prague. He has an excellent team of English-speaking Czech professionals who helped throughout the buying process (paperwork, lawyers, notary, due diligence, etc). Although, with a Czech wife, I presume you will give it a go without any help.

    Hope this has been of some use.

    And good luck!

    By the way, prices are steadily creeping up. I've had my eye on the Olomouc market for a good few years, so get in there while you can! Just you wait when it finally gets "discovered" by the more adventurous Brits and Dutch.
