In this post, I will tell you how to use one of the least known and most powerful tools you have at your disposal – .
This will especially be beneficial if you’ve been looking for a way to find housing at Brazilian prices for free or looking for a way to advertise your English teaching.
What is Vivastreet and Why Should You Care?
Know of ?
If not, it’s the USA’s largest free classifieds site and totally free and the place to look for anything.
Well, Vivastreet is Brazil’s answer to Craigslist and the main classifieds site for Brazil.
And it is a powerful and Free tool at your disposal.
It is free to use and free to have an account, but some options will cost you when advertising.
How To Use Vivastreet to Find Housing, Cars, Merchandise, Services etc.
Vivastreet is great for the fact that you can find most anything you need for reasonable prices.
And even better if you are in a situation where you need to find a house but are abroad and have a hard time prospecting locally.
All you have to do is go to the site, click on the state you would like to look in and start browsing the different catagories.
I’ve created a how-to video on the basics of Vivastreet and how it’s used.

It’s free to create classifieds on Vivastreet, the only thing you will have to pay for is top placements, colored backgrounds and the like. Though you still can get away without having to pay anything to write a classified.

Though this post was pretty short today, I feel that it’s one of the most important out there – it has definitely benefitted me greatly and feel that it will do the same for you.
There is one more large classifieds website in Brazil that is Vivastreet’s competitor, they are called . I personally prefer Vivastreet as OLX is a more “drill down” the results type classified site where things are a bit messier and unorganized.
Though OLX is still another great option to have and by all means worth using as well – especially if you are creating classifieds.
