Real Estate in Kazakhstan

By Joshua Wood, LPC

Last updated on Mar 03, 2023

Summary: An expat looking to buy a home in Kazakhstan should begin 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. Foreigners are allowed to own property in Kazakhstan, but there are some restrictions. For example, foreigners are not allowed to own land, and they must obtain a special permit from the government in order to purchase a property. Houses in Kazakhstan typically include amenities such as air conditioning, central heating, and modern appliances. Many homes also have balconies, terraces, and gardens.

How do I find a place to live in Kazakhstan?

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 Kazakhstan is to use online resources such as websites and social media. Websites such as Expat.com, ExpatRentals.com, and RealEstate.kz are great resources for finding rental properties in Kazakhstan. Additionally, social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram can be used to search for rental properties in Kazakhstan. Additionally, it is possible to find a place to live in Kazakhstan by asking around in the local community. Many people in Kazakhstan are willing to help expats find a place to live, and it is possible to find a place to live through word of mouth," remarked one member in Kazakhstan.
