Moving to SP in January (São Paulo)

Hi Everyone,

My husband and I will be moving to SP in January from the US and we have been looking for places to rent for two years. We'd prefer to find something that is at least partially furnished so we don't have to haul everything down. We have seen that it is quite expensive to buy furniture and many electronics down there.

We have been looking at the Itaim area because it is close to my husband's work and seems to be a lively area. We have been using a relocation company but also wanted to get some information on our own. Apartment rents seem to vary widely even in the same building.

Does anyone have any advice on where to look for a partially furnished apartment in Itaim? Or places to buy furniture at reasonable prices?

Any other advice you may have for someone just moving down would be much appreciated!
