Real Estate in Mongolia

By Betsy Burlingame

Last updated on Jul 13, 2023

Summary: An expat looking to buy a home in Mongolia should begin their search by researching the local real estate market. They should look for listings on websites such as Zillow, Trulia, and Realtor.com, as well as local real estate agents. Homes in Mongolia typically include basic amenities such as running water, electricity, and heating. Many homes also have air conditioning, internet access, and modern appliances. Foreigners are allowed to own property in Mongolia, but there are some restrictions. Foreigners are not allowed to own land, but they can own buildings and apartments. They must also obtain a permit from the Ministry of Construction and Urban Development in order to purchase a property.

How do I find a place to live in Mongolia?

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

"One way to find a place to live in Mongolia is to search online for rental listings. Websites such as expat.com, mongolia-rentals.com, and mongolianproperty.com offer a variety of rental listings for apartments, houses, and other types of accommodation. Additionally, you can search for rental listings on popular classifieds websites such as Craigslist and Gumtree. You can also contact local real estate agents who specialize in rental properties in Mongolia. Finally, you can ask friends and family who live in Mongolia for recommendations," said one person in Mongolia.
