How do I find a place to live in Benidorm?

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

"Finding a place to live in Benidorm, involves several steps. First, you need to determine your budget and the type of accommodation you're looking for. This could range from a small apartment to a large villa, depending on your needs and financial capabilities. Next, you should research the different neighborhoods in Benidorm to find one that suits your lifestyle and preferences. Some popular areas include Levante, Poniente, and the Old Town. Each has its own unique character and amenities. Once you've identified your preferred area, you can start searching for available properties. There are several online platforms that list properties for rent or sale in Benidorm, such as Idealista, Fotocasa, and Kyero. These websites allow you to filter your search based on location, price, size, and other features. In addition to online searches, you might also want to consider hiring a local real estate agent. They can provide valuable insights into the local market, help negotiate prices, and guide you through the legal process of renting or buying a property in Spain. When you find a property you're interested in, arrange a viewing. This will give you a chance to inspect the property, ask questions, and get a feel for the neighborhood. If you decide to proceed with a property, you'll need to negotiate the terms of the lease or purchase agreement. This will include the price, move-in date, and any other conditions. In Spain, it's common to pay a deposit of one to two months' rent for rental properties. Finally, once the agreement is signed, you'll need to arrange for utilities and services such as electricity, water, and internet. Some of these may be included in your rent, while others will need to be set up separately. Remember, moving to a new country can be a complex process, so it's important to do your research and seek professional advice if needed," said one person in Benidorm.
