How do I find a place to live in Brussels?

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

"When looking for a place to live in Brussels, it is important to consider your budget, desired location, and the type of accommodation you are looking for. There are a variety of options available, including apartments, houses, and shared accommodation. You can search online for rental listings, or contact a local real estate agent for assistance. Additionally, there are many websites that offer listings of available properties in Brussels, such as Immoweb, Zimmo, and Logic-Immo. It is also possible to find short-term accommodation through Airbnb or other rental websites. Once you have identified a few potential properties, it is important to visit them in person to ensure they meet your needs," remarked one foreigner who made the move to Brussels.
