Real Estate in Peru

By Joshua Wood, LPC

Last updated on Feb 08, 2024

Summary: An expat looking to buy a home in Peru should begin by researching the local real estate market. They should look for listings on websites such as Lamudi, Peru Real Estate, and Peru Property Listings. It is also important to consult with a local real estate agent who can provide more detailed information about the area and the properties available. Foreigners are allowed to own property in Peru, however, there are certain restrictions. For example, foreigners are not allowed to own land within 50 kilometers of the coast or 100 kilometers of the border. Homes in Peru typically include basic amenities such as running water, electricity, and gas. Many homes also have access to internet and cable television. Depending on the area, some homes may also include additional amenities such as swimming pools, gardens, and terraces.

How do I find a place to live in Peru?

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 Peru is to use online resources such as websites and social media. Websites such as Craigslist, Expat.com, and EasyRoommate are great for finding rental properties in Peru. Additionally, social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter can be used to search for rental properties in Peru. Additionally, it is also possible to find a place to live in Peru by asking around in the local community. Many people in Peru are willing to rent out their homes or apartments to foreigners. Finally, it is also possible to find a place to live in Peru by using a real estate agent. Real estate agents can help you find the perfect place to live in Peru," said one expat who made the move to Peru.
