How do I find a place to live in Mexico City?

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

"The first step in finding a place to live in Mexico City is to decide on the type of accommodation that you prefer. Are you looking for a single rental unit, a room in a shared house or apartment, or a fully furnished flat or house? You can search for rental listings online by searching for websites such as VivaStreet Mexico and EasyRoommate Mexico. You can also consult with a local real estate agency and speak with a realtor who knows the area and can show you a variety of options. Additionally, you can join local expat Facebook groups or browse the classifieds section of local expat websites to get an idea of what’s available. Once you’ve identified potential properties, you should visit each in person to get a better feel for them before you make a final decision," said one expat who made the move to Mexico City.

"My company assisted us by hiring a Relocation company. In Mexico City it is very important to know where you will work in order to find your home. Commuting time can be terrible if you do not consider this important issues," explained one foreigner living in Mexico City, Mexico.
