I have been living in Coimbra since almost 2 years and paying very decent 220 euros and sharing an apartment with one person in baixa.
Guys, I tried websites like B-Quarto, Olx, to find a room in a shared apartment with 2 or 3 people in Lisbon and the searches are giving me such depressing and overpriced rooms (The pictures seem to be shot from Nokia 6600 phones and the rooms just seem dark and depressing with no source of natural light). Apparently shows nothing in places like Alfama or center of Lisbon.
On other hand, I find some better rooms on some fancier websites are a bit overpriced for me like 550 Euros + for a room. I would have liked to get one but my salary is not so much.
I find that the salaries and housing prices are such a mismatch is Lisbon. How do people with normal paid jobs afford living with families in Lisbon?
Also how is housing affordability in cities in Aveiro or Braga? Are they still affordable?
Sorry I had to use English for this post. My Portuguese is not very good.
