Real Estate in Nepal

By Betsy Burlingame

Last updated on Jul 19, 2023

Summary: An expat looking to buy a home in Nepal should start 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 Nepal, expats should look for properties that are in good condition and have all the necessary amenities. These typically include a kitchen, bathroom, living room, and bedrooms. Some homes may also include a garden, terrace, or balcony. Foreigners are allowed to purchase property in Nepal, but there are certain restrictions. For example, foreigners are not allowed to purchase agricultural land or land that is located in a restricted area. Additionally, foreigners must obtain permission from the government before they can purchase a property.

How do I find a place to live in Nepal?

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

"Finding a place to live in Nepal can be a daunting task. The best way to start is by researching the different areas of the country and deciding which one best suits your needs. You can look for rental listings online, or contact a local real estate agent who can help you find a suitable property. Additionally, you can ask friends and family who live in Nepal for advice and recommendations. Once you have narrowed down your search, you can visit the area to get a better feel for the neighborhood and to view potential properties," said one expat who made the move to Nepal.
