Real Estate in Luxembourg

By Joshua Wood, LPC

Last updated on Feb 03, 2024

Summary: An expat looking to buy a home in Luxembourg should begin by researching the local real estate market. They should look into the different neighborhoods and areas of the country to find the best fit for their needs. They should also consider their budget and the type of property they are looking for. Foreigners are allowed to purchase property in Luxembourg, however, there are certain restrictions in place. For example, foreigners are not allowed to purchase agricultural land or land that is part of a protected area. Houses in Luxembourg typically include modern amenities such as central heating, double glazing, and fitted kitchens. Many homes also have gardens and terraces, as well as access to public transportation.

How do I find a place to live in Luxembourg?

We asked expats how they chose their neighborhood and found a place to live. They answered:

"Finding a place to live in Luxembourg can be a daunting task. The best way to start is by researching the different neighborhoods and areas of the country to determine which one best suits your needs. You can also look into local real estate agents who specialize in helping expats find a place to live. Additionally, there are a number of websites and online forums dedicated to helping expats find a place to live in Luxembourg. These websites often have listings of available apartments and houses, as well as helpful advice from other expats who have gone through the process. Finally, you can also look into local newspapers and classifieds for listings of available properties," said one expat who made the move to Luxembourg.

"We have been here nearly 2 years. When my husband got the job offer to come over here, it was late August. The company flew us over in early September to look at housing. There was only one house in this town. After looking at houses that were 30 minutes from the school, we chose the first one. It's all about location, location, location. Our town has many expat families, so the carpooling opportunities are numerous. Besides, it is not our house, it is someone elses. Our time here is temporary. You don't want to spend weekends (Saturdays only as Sundays you can't use any power equipment!) worrying about the house. It's closer to school and a bit older, but conveniently located and serves the purpose," explained one foreigner living in Bertrange, Luxembourg.
