Summary: An expat looking to buy a home in Egypt should begin by researching the different neighborhoods and areas of the country. It is important to consider factors such as safety, access to amenities, and proximity to work or school. Expats should also research the local real estate market to get an idea of the types of properties available and their prices. Homes in Egypt typically include amenities such as air conditioning, balconies, and terraces. Many homes also have private gardens and swimming pools. Foreigners are allowed to own property in Egypt, but there are some restrictions. Foreigners are not allowed to own land in certain areas, such as military zones or areas near the border. Additionally, foreigners are not allowed to own more than two properties in Egypt.

How do I find a place to live in Egypt?

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 Egypt is to search online for rental listings. Websites such as Expat.com, Nestpick, and Housing Anywhere offer a variety of rental options in Egypt. Additionally, you can search for rental listings on social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter. You can also contact local real estate agents who specialize in rental properties in Egypt. Additionally, you can ask friends and family who live in Egypt for recommendations. Finally, you can look for rental listings in local newspapers and magazines," explained one person living in Egypt.
