How do I find a place to live in Mons?

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

"Finding a place to live in Mons, involves several steps. First, you need to determine your budget and the type of accommodation you're looking for. This could range from a studio apartment to a larger family home. Next, you should research the different neighborhoods in Mons to find one that suits your lifestyle and needs. Some areas might be closer to the city center, offering easy access to shops, restaurants, and cultural attractions, while others might be more residential and quiet. Once you have a clear idea of what you're looking for, you can start your search. There are several online platforms where you can find listings for rental properties in Mons, such as Immoweb, Zimmo, and Realo. These websites allow you to filter your search based on various criteria, such as price, size, location, and type of property. In addition to online listings, you might also want to consider hiring a real estate agent. They can provide valuable local knowledge, help you navigate the rental process, and potentially find properties that aren't listed online. When you find a property you're interested in, contact the landlord or real estate agent to arrange a viewing. This will give you a chance to inspect the property, ask any questions, and get a feel for the neighborhood. If you decide to proceed with a property, you'll need to negotiate and sign a lease agreement. This will typically involve providing references, proof of income, and possibly a security deposit. Make sure to read the lease carefully and understand all the terms before signing. Finally, once the lease is signed, you can arrange for the move. This might involve hiring a moving company, setting up utilities, and purchasing any necessary furniture or appliances. Remember, finding a place to live can take time, so it's important to start your search well in advance of when you plan to move," remarked one foreigner who made the move to Mons.
