How do I find a place to live in Rio de Janeiro?

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

"One of the best ways to find a place to live in Rio de Janeiro is to use online rental websites such as Airbnb, VivaReal, and ZAP Imóveis. These websites allow you to search for rental properties in Rio de Janeiro by location, price, and amenities. Additionally, you can contact local real estate agents who specialize in rental properties in the area. They can provide you with more information about the neighborhoods and help you find the perfect place to live," remarked one member in Rio de Janeiro.
