Summary: An expat looking to buy a home in Gambia should start by researching the local real estate market. They should look for reputable real estate agents and brokers who can help them find the right property. Expats should also consider their budget and the type of property they are looking for. Homes in Gambia typically include basic amenities such as running water, electricity, and air conditioning. Some homes may also include a pool, garden, or other luxury features.
