Idealista and fotocasa are the two main resources to search for housing. I advise against looking for housing in the city center, as it tends to be of very poor quality and with high prices, especially if you earn a local salary.
Housing in Spain suffered a boom between the 70's and 90's where a lot was built, but with very bad qualities, so you will find yourself being cold in your own house and spending a lot of money on heating.
This can happen even in those apartments that, visually, look renovated. The lack of adequate insulation is a constant, which was only corrected with the technical building codes after 2000, especially 2006.
The neighboring municipalities offer more recent housing, with better qualities, at more moderate prices. Travel, either by bus or by car to Coruña, is easy.
