Real Estate in Martinique

By Betsy Burlingame

Last updated on Jun 21, 2023

Summary: An expat looking to buy a home in Martinique should begin their search by researching the local real estate market. They should look for listings on websites such as Rightmove, Zillow, and Tranio. It is also a good idea to contact a local real estate agent who can provide more information about the area and the available properties. Homes in Martinique typically include amenities such as air conditioning, swimming pools, and terraces. Many homes also have modern kitchens and bathrooms, as well as outdoor spaces for entertaining. Foreigners are allowed to purchase property in Martinique, but there are certain restrictions. For example, foreigners must obtain a permit from the local government before they can purchase a property. Additionally, foreigners are not allowed to purchase land in certain areas, such as near the coast.

How do I find a place to live in Martinique?

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 Martinique is to search online for rental listings. There are many websites that offer listings for apartments, houses, and other types of rental properties in Martinique. Additionally, you can also search for rental listings in local newspapers and classifieds. Additionally, you can also contact local real estate agents who specialize in rental properties in Martinique. They can provide you with more information about available rental properties and help you find the perfect place to live," explained one expat living in Martinique.

"It took us sometime to find the right neighborhood. The carribeans aren't like USA. Most areas are really simalar. We had to change our expectations on focus on our overall needs not wants. For example - with seven kids it's more important to live next to the grocery store rather than the playground," said one person in Scholcher.
