Summary: An expat looking to buy a home in Morocco should begin by researching the local real estate market. It is important to understand the local laws and regulations regarding foreign ownership of property in Morocco. Expats should also consider their budget and the type of amenities they are looking for in a home. Foreigners are allowed to purchase property in Morocco, but there are certain restrictions. For example, foreigners are not allowed to purchase property in certain areas, such as near military bases or in certain coastal areas. Additionally, foreigners are not allowed to purchase more than one property in Morocco. Homes in Morocco typically include amenities such as air conditioning, modern kitchens, and private gardens. Many homes also have access to swimming pools, tennis courts, and other recreational facilities. Expats should also consider the proximity of the home to local amenities such as schools, hospitals, and shopping centers.

How do I find a place to live in Morocco?

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

"Very difficult and expensive to rent here if you want a pool and garden, we ended up buying a villa. We found our home on the internet and by asking local people about what was for sale in the area," said one person in Marrakech.
