Real Estate in Argentina

By Joshua Wood, LPC

Last updated on Feb 10, 2024

Summary: An expat looking to buy a home in Argentina should begin by researching the different neighborhoods and cities in the country. It is important to consider factors such as cost of living, safety, and access to amenities. Expats should also research the local real estate market to get an idea of the types of properties available and the average prices. Foreigners are allowed to purchase property in Argentina, however, there are certain restrictions in place. For example, foreigners are not allowed to purchase land within 50 kilometers of the border. Additionally, foreigners must obtain permission from the Central Bank of Argentina before purchasing a property. Houses in Argentina typically include amenities such as air conditioning, heating, and modern appliances. Many homes also have outdoor spaces such as gardens, terraces, and balconies. Depending on the location, some homes may also have access to a pool or other recreational facilities.

How do I find a place to live in Argentina?

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

"One of the best ways to find a place to live in Argentina is to use online resources such as websites and classifieds. Websites such as ZonaProp, Alquileres, and Mercado Libre are popular resources for finding rental properties in Argentina. Additionally, classifieds such as El Clarin and La Nacion are great sources for finding apartments and houses for rent. It is also possible to find a place to live by asking around in the local community or by contacting a real estate agent," said one expat who made the move to Argentina.
