How do I find a place to live in Czechia?

We asked expats how they chose their neighborhood and found a place to live. They answered:

"We spoke with over twenty realtors and saw more than a dozen of them. We found that the only way to see apartments that met standards we were used to was to ask for "luxury apartments." Often realtors are reluctant to show pricier apartments, since they're usually a hard sell - there aren't nearly as many expats here as there are in Prague. Often, they just don't have anything to show you, as there just aren't lots of luxury apartments. However, many beautiful old buildings in the center have been and are being re-done and there are now some lovely, luxury apartments for rent. Keep in mind that luxury here just means very nice - don't expect a doorman or parking garage. Look for listings in the highest price category - right now, anywhere from 18,000-30,000 crowns. Be aware of the price you want to pay and the price listed for the apartment before you go to see it. On more than one occasion, once we saw the apartment and the owner realized we weren't Czech, the price was raised significantly," added another expat who made the move to Brno.
