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

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

"Finding a place to live in Bacolod City involves several steps. First, you need to determine your budget and the type of accommodation you're looking for. This could range from apartments, condos, houses, or even dormitories. Next, you should research the different neighborhoods in Bacolod City to find one that suits your lifestyle and preferences. Some popular areas include the city center, Mandalagan, and Villamonte. Once you've identified your preferred area, you can start your search. There are several online platforms where you can find listings for available properties. Websites like Lamudi, Dot Property, and Property24 have extensive listings for Bacolod City. You can also check local newspapers like the Visayan Daily Star or SunStar Bacolod for classified ads. Another option is to hire a local real estate agent. They can help you navigate the local market, arrange viewings, and negotiate prices. When you find a property you're interested in, make sure to inspect it thoroughly. Check the condition of the property, ask about any additional fees, and inquire about the terms of the lease. Finally, once you're satisfied with the property, you can proceed with the rental or purchase process. This usually involves signing a contract and paying a deposit or down payment. Remember, it's important to take your time and not rush the process. Finding the right place to live can take time, but it's worth it to find a place you'll be happy with," said one expat in Bacolod City.
