National or local newspapers is a good place to start looking for a flat to rent. Tuesdays and Fridays are preferred advertising days. The Hebrew newspapers may have more ads than the English newspapers. Word of Mouth is good too: if there’s an area you particularly like or have been recommended take a walk through the neighbourhood and look at signs attached to polls, try and speak with local residents or shop owners.
A hassle-free approach would be to go through an estate agent, although they will normally charge you the equivalent to one month’s rent for their services. Note that if you work through more than one agent avoid visiting the same property with both, if you do you will end up having to pay two sets of fees should you decide to take the place.
