Real Estate in Hungary

By Betsy Burlingame

Last updated on Sep 25, 2023

Summary: An expat looking to buy a home in Hungary should begin by researching the local real estate market and familiarizing themselves with the different types of properties available. They should also consider their budget and the type of amenities they are looking for in a home. When searching for a home to buy in Hungary, expats should look for properties that are in good condition and have all the necessary amenities. These typically include a kitchen, bathroom, living room, bedrooms, and a garden or outdoor space. Expats should also consider the location of the property and the surrounding area. Foreigners are allowed to purchase properties in Hungary, however, there are certain restrictions in place. For example, foreigners are not allowed to purchase agricultural land or properties located in certain protected areas. Additionally, foreigners must obtain a permit from the local government before they can purchase a property.
