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

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

"Finding a place to live in Makati City involves several steps. First, you need to determine your budget. This will help you narrow down your options and focus on areas that are within your price range. Next, you need to decide what type of accommodation you are looking for. This could be a condominium, an apartment, a house, or even a room for rent. Each type of accommodation has its own set of advantages and disadvantages, so it's important to consider your lifestyle and personal preferences. 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 properties for rent in Makati City. These include websites like Lamudi, Property24, and Rentpad. You can filter the listings based on your preferences, such as the type of accommodation, the number of bedrooms, and the price range. In addition to online listings, you can also consider hiring a real estate agent. They have access to a wide range of properties and can help you find a place that fits your needs and budget. Make sure to communicate your preferences clearly to your agent so they can provide you with suitable options. Once you've found a few potential places, arrange for a viewing. This will give you a chance to see the property in person and assess its condition. It's also a good opportunity to ask any questions you might have about the property. Finally, once you've found a place you like, you'll need to negotiate the terms of the lease and sign a contract. Make sure to read the contract carefully and understand all the terms before signing. If you're not comfortable with the terms, don't hesitate to negotiate or seek legal advice. Remember, finding a place to live can take time, so it's important to be patient and not rush the process. With careful planning and research, you can find a great place to live in Makati City," explained one person living in Makati City, Philippines.
