Getting started

When beginning your search, establish your budget and other housing preferences. How important is it for you to be nearby your work, how much are you willing to pay or are there nearby school facilities if relocating with your family etc. Next, do some research on your options; is my city preference affordable? What about nearby cities? If you live outside of the city, is there nearby public transport options and how long is the commute? Where are the most recommended areas to live? Are there shops, bars and restaurants nearby? These questions will help narrow down exactly what you are looking for and help speed up the process of finding the accommodation that fits you and your needs.
