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:

"The best way to begin looking for a place to live in Perth is to research online. There are numerous websites specifically designed to help people find rental accommodation in Perth, such as realestate.com.au, domain.com.au, and rent.com.au. You can also find apartment and house listings in the local newspapers, or seek the services of a real estate agent who can help you find the perfect accommodation. Additionally, it is a good idea to attend local open for inspections so that you can explore the area and find the ideal place to live," remarked one member in Perth, Australia.
