How do I find a place to live in Lisbon?

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

"One of the best ways to find a place to live in Lisbon is to use online rental websites such as Idealista, Imovirtual, and Booling. These websites allow you to search for rental properties in Lisbon by location, price, and other criteria. Additionally, you can contact local real estate agents who specialize in rental properties in Lisbon. They can provide you with more information about the rental market in Lisbon and help you find a place that meets your needs. Finally, you can also search for rental properties on social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram, as many landlords post their rental properties on these platforms," remarked one member in Lisbon.
