How do I find a place to live in Hungary?
We asked expats how they chose their neighborhood and found a place to live. They answered:
"We looked online and found it on a Ingatlan (Realtor) Hungarian/English site. Wasn't very hard to look through the pictures. You can also use sites like xpatloop.com to help locate the Realtors. Housing in Budapest is expensive right now for anything above 900 sq ft. and hard to find,"
explained one person living in Budapest, Hungary.
"I already knew the neighborhood from spending a summer here working as an intern. Found my apartment by asking friends & looking for apartments with roommates,"
said another expat in Budapest.
