How do I find a place to live in Perth?

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

"Finding a place to live in Perth involves several steps. Firstly, you need to determine your budget. This will help you narrow down the areas in Perth where you can afford to live. Next, you should research different neighborhoods in Perth to find one that suits your lifestyle and preferences. Consider factors such as proximity to work or school, availability of public transportation, safety, and the presence of amenities such as shops, restaurants, and parks. Once you've identified a few potential neighborhoods, you can start looking for available properties. There are several online property portals that list houses and apartments for rent or sale in Perth, such as Rightmove, Zoopla, and OnTheMarket. You can filter the listings by price, property type, number of bedrooms, and other features to find properties that meet your needs. In addition to online listings, you might also want to contact local real estate agents. They can provide you with information about properties that aren't listed online and help you navigate the process of renting or buying a home. Before making a decision, it's important to visit the properties in person. This will give you a better sense of the property's condition, the neighborhood, and whether it's a good fit for you. Finally, once you've found a property you like, you'll need to submit an application or make an offer. If you're renting, the application will likely involve providing references and proof of income. If you're buying, you'll need to negotiate the price with the seller and arrange for a mortgage. Remember, finding a place to live can take time, so it's important to be patient and not rush the process," remarked one member in Perth.
