How do I find a place to live in Brisbane?

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

"One way to find an appropriate place to live in Brisbane is to search the internet for listings of available properties. You can find a variety of places, such as apartments, houses, and townhouses. Additionally, you can contact local real estate agents for help in finding the perfect property for you. To narrow your search, you can look for listings in the areas and neighborhoods that suit your lifestyle and budget. Additionally, using online resources such as rental websites, newspapers, and social media can be a great way to find available places. You can also join local networks and forums where you can learn information that can help you find the right place to call home," explained one expat living in Brisbane, Australia, Australia.
