How do I find a place to live in Cairo?

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

"Finding a place to live in Cairo can be a daunting task. It is important to research the different neighborhoods and areas of the city to determine which one best suits your needs. You can start by looking online for rental listings, or by asking friends and family who live in the area for recommendations. Additionally, you can contact local real estate agents who specialize in the Cairo area to help you find the perfect place. Once you have narrowed down your search, it is important to visit the area in person to get a better feel for the neighborhood and to ensure that the property meets your expectations," said one person in Cairo.
