Real Estate in Fiji

By Joshua Wood, LPC

Last updated on Jan 02, 2024

Summary: An expat looking to buy a home in Fiji should start by researching the local real estate market. They should look for listings on websites such as RealEstate.com.fj, FijiProperty.com, and PropertyFiji.com. Foreigners are allowed to purchase property in Fiji, however, they must obtain a permit from the Ministry of Lands and Mineral Resources. Homes in Fiji typically include amenities such as air conditioning, a swimming pool, and a garden. Many homes also have ocean views and access to beaches.

How do I find a place to live in Fiji?

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 Fiji is to search online for rental listings. There are many websites that offer listings for apartments, houses, and other types of accommodation in Fiji. Additionally, you can contact local real estate agents who can help you find a suitable place to live. You can also look for classified ads in local newspapers and magazines, or ask around in your local community for recommendations," remarked one foreigner who made the move to Fiji.

"Luckily through a friend we got onto a Fijian couple and we rented their kit home on 2 acres - we could not find anything on the internet for the area we wanted to live which was around the Sigatoka area," explained one person living in Sigatoka Valley, Fiji.
