Real Estate in Honduras

By Joshua Wood, LPC

Last updated on Feb 05, 2024

Summary: An expat looking to buy a home in Honduras should begin by researching the local real estate market. They should look for reputable real estate agents and brokers who specialize in helping expats purchase property in Honduras. Additionally, they should research the local laws and regulations regarding foreign ownership of property in Honduras. Foreigners are allowed to own property in Honduras, but there are certain restrictions. For example, foreigners are not allowed to own property within 50 kilometers of the coast or within 10 kilometers of the border. Additionally, foreigners must obtain a special permit from the Honduran government in order to purchase property. Houses in Honduras typically include basic amenities such as running water, electricity, and sewage. Many homes also have air conditioning, internet access, and other modern amenities. Additionally, many homes in Honduras come with a garden or outdoor space.

How do I find a place to live in Honduras?

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 Honduras is to search online for rental listings. Websites such as Encuentra24.com, Vivanuncios.com, and Encuentra24.hn offer a variety of rental listings in Honduras. Additionally, you can search for rental listings on social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter. Additionally, you can contact local real estate agents who specialize in rental properties in Honduras. Finally, you can also ask friends and family who live in Honduras for recommendations," said one person in Honduras.

"Searched for a great value in a direct beachfront home. Found "La Ceiba Beach Club" to have the best values anywhere in Central America and The Caribbean," remarked one foreigner who made the move to La Ceiba.
