Do not waste your time looking at neighborhoods, or even looking at ads, for a budget you cannot afford.
The first step in your apartment hunt should be to determine the absolute maximum you can afford to spend on rent.

A good rule of thumb is that you should not spend more than 30% of your net income on rent.
For a person earning a net income of €40,000 per annum, 30% would be equivalent to a rent of about €1,000 per month.

Naturally, many people who just start in Paris spend a little over 30% of their income on rent.
If you think you might be one of those people, you must understand the lifestyle implications before you lock yourself in a life situation that you cannot afford.
