Just moved to Santiago- need a place to live! (Santiago de Chile)

Hi everyone,

My girlfriend and I just moved to Santiago from Colorado and we are starting the process of looking for a place to live. Some of the challenges we are facing (that many others have probably had) include:

1. Not having a local bank account
2. Not having local credit history

I have a job lined up and it will be starting at the end of April in Providencia. We are looking for a place to live in Providencia or Las Condes. Ideally, we would like to find a shorter-term rental (~3-6 months) that would allow us to get to know the city better before we commit to a longer-term situation. However, we might consider a longer commitment for the right place. We also have a car and will be needing a parking space as part of our rental.

Maybe you have something coming up for rent or maybe you can just offer some suggestions on how to best attack our problem. Thanks for any help!
