How do I find a place to live in Newcastle?

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

"Finding a place to live in Newcastle involves several steps. Firstly, you need to determine your budget. This will help you narrow down the areas in Newcastle that you can afford to live in. Next, you should research different neighborhoods in Newcastle 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 platforms where you can search for rental or sale properties, such as realestate.com.au, domain.com.au, and rent.com.au. These websites allow you to filter properties based on location, price, property type, and number of bedrooms, among other factors. You can also engage the services of a real estate agent to help you in your search. They can provide you with expert advice and access to properties that may not be listed online. Once you've found a property you're interested in, you'll need to arrange a viewing. This will give you a chance to inspect the property and ask any questions you may have. If you're planning to rent, you'll need to submit an application to the property manager or landlord. This usually involves providing references and proof of income to demonstrate that you can afford the rent. If you're planning to buy, you'll need to make an offer on the property and, if accepted, arrange for a mortgage. You'll also need to hire a solicitor to handle the legal aspects of the purchase. Finally, once all the paperwork is completed, you can move into your new home in Newcastle," explained one person living in Newcastle, Australia.
