Summary: An expat looking to buy a home in Romania should begin by researching the local real estate market. They should look for listings on websites such as Imobiliare.ro, Zillow, and OLX. They should also consider contacting a local real estate agent for assistance. Foreigners are allowed to purchase properties in Romania, however, they must obtain a permit from the Romanian Ministry of Justice.

How do I find a place to live in Romania?

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 Romania is to use online resources such as websites and classifieds. Websites such as Imobiliare.ro, OLX.ro, and Ziarul Imobiliar are great resources for finding apartments, houses, and other types of real estate in Romania. Additionally, classifieds such as Craigslist and Gumtree can be used to find rental properties in Romania. Additionally, it is possible to find a place to live in Romania by networking with people in the area, such as friends, family, or colleagues. Finally, it is also possible to find a place to live in Romania by contacting local real estate agents or property management companies," said one person in Romania.

"Through aquaintances. Met some international exchange students and kept in contact with them shrough social networks," said one expat who made the move to Bucharest.
