How do I find a place to live in Moscow?
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 Moscow is to use online rental platforms such as Avito, Cian, and Yandex.Realty. These websites offer a wide range of rental options, from apartments to houses, and can be filtered by location, price, and amenities. Additionally, you can also search for rental properties on social media platforms such as VKontakte and Facebook. It is also possible to find a place to live in Moscow through real estate agencies, which can provide more personalized assistance in finding a suitable property," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to Moscow, Russia.
"We chose a family friendly area - Chisty Prudi - and used Evans estate agent for our first two apartments and Penny Lane for our last one. We used others too but Evans worked out to be the most reasonable overall and their agent actually listened to what we wanted, rather than showing us a whole load of rubbish. Penny Lane did a great job helping us find our last apartment," commented one expat who made the move to Moscow, Russia.
