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 Russia is to use online resources such as websites and classifieds. Websites such as Avito, Cian, and Domofond are popular in Russia and offer a wide range of rental options. Additionally, you can search for rental listings on social media platforms such as VKontakte and Facebook. You can also contact local real estate agencies, which can help you find a place to live in Russia. Additionally, you can ask friends and family for recommendations or look for rental postings in local newspapers," said another expat in 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," wrote a member who made the move to Moscow, Russia.
