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

"We needed to rent a furnished apartment or home. That narrowed down our search to only one decently sized townhouse (rakehaus). In hindsight I wished that we had just sucked it up and purchased Ikea furniture to open up our choices. The townhouse was ok but I kicked myself for not listening to my gut instinct that one main bathroom for a family of four just wouldn't work for us. It didn't. And it was a supreme source of frustration because that one bathroom had a shower leak that the owner refused to fix until we moved out and charged us for the repair and cleaning of all the lime buildup. That's common in Denmark -- the owners of rentals will charge you for fixing things they should have fixed while you lived there," remarked another expat who made the move to Copenhagen, Denmark.

"One of the best ways to find a place to live in Denmark is to use online resources such as BoligPortal, which is a Danish website that allows you to search for rental properties in Denmark. Additionally, you can also use websites such as Lejebolig, which is a Danish rental property website, or Danskeboliger, which is a Danish real estate website. You can also use social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram to search for rental properties in Denmark. Additionally, you can also contact local real estate agents or property management companies to help you find a place to live in Denmark," explained one expat living in Denmark.
