How do I find a place to live in Bucharest?

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

"Finding a suitable place to live in Bucharest depends on many factors such as budget, desired location, and required facilities. The most common way of finding accommodation in Bucharest is by searching online.
