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

"My family and I chose a HUGE house in the La Virginia neighborhood. The rent is expensive, but we spent nearly three months living in a hotel before finding anything we liked," said another expat in Maracaibo, Venezuela.

"When looking for a place here, you must go through an agent, who you the renter will have to pay one month's rent as commission. The trick is to use several agents because depending on your budget, they forget about you. We chose a neighborhood that was first safe and then close to everything since I don't drive. We chose an apartment for security reasons (most buildings have 24 hour security) and it has less upkeep," wrote a member who made the move to Caracas, Venezuela.
