Real Estate in Luxembourg

By Joshua Wood, LPC

Last updated on Nov 27, 2021

Summary: Expats and retirees talk about real estate in Luxembourg? How do you find a home in Luxembourg? Should you buy or rent? What is the cost of housing?

How do I find a place to live in Luxembourg?

We asked expats how they chose their neighborhood and found a place to live. They answered:

"We have been here nearly 2 years. When my husband got the job offer to come over here, it was late August. The company flew us over in early September to look at housing. There was only one house in this town. After looking at houses that were 30 minutes from the school, we chose the first one. It's all about location, location, location. Our town has many expat families, so the carpooling opportunities are numerous. Besides, it is not our house, it is someone elses. Our time here is temporary. You don't want to spend weekends (Saturdays only as Sundays you can't use any power equipment!) worrying about the house. It's closer to school and a bit older, but conveniently located and serves the purpose," remarked another member in Bertrange.

What is a typical expat home or apartment like in Luxembourg?

If you live in Luxembourg, newcomers to Luxembourg would love to hear your answer to this question.

If your answer relates to a specific city or town in Luxembourg, please include the name of the city/town below:


"We live in a single family 4 bedroom 2.5 bath brick house painted white. The whole neighborhood has painted white brick single family homes. It is European looking from the outside, but modern design on the inside. Most expats that I know in this small country live in similiar homes. Most of the homes here are duplexes with one mutual wall. In the city there are apartments of various sizes and row house style homes," said another person in Bertrange.

What is the average cost of housing in Luxembourg?

If you are thinking about moving to Luxembourg, cost of living in probably a key consideration. Expats commented about the cost of housing:

"Our rental is higher than our mortgage. The euro is about 1.5 times the dollar. The average similiar sized home rents for between 3500 and 4200 euro per month. We get paid in US dollars with a subsidy to equalize the cost of living here. Our home is rented in the US, so we contribute to our rent payment here. Then get an adjustment to cover the increased cost of fuel, electricity, food etc," said another person in Bertrange.
