Summary: Expats and retirees talk about real estate in Antigua, Guatemala? How do you find a home in Antigua? Should you buy or rent? What is the cost of housing?

How do I find a place to live in Antigua?

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

"Finding a place to live in Antigua involves several steps. First, you need to determine your budget and the type of accommodation you're looking for. This could range from a shared apartment to a private house. Next, you should research the different neighborhoods in Antigua to find one that suits your lifestyle and preferences. Some popular areas include the city center, which is close to many shops and restaurants, and the outskirts, which are quieter and offer more space. Once you have an idea of where you want to live, you can start looking for available properties. There are several online platforms where you can find listings, such as Airbnb, Booking.com, and local real estate websites. You can also check local newspapers and community boards for rental ads. If you're planning to stay in Antigua for a long time, it might be worth hiring a local real estate agent. They can help you navigate the local market, arrange viewings, and negotiate contracts. Before signing a lease, make sure to visit the property in person. Check the condition of the property, ask about utilities and maintenance, and try to meet the landlord or property manager. Finally, once you've found a place you like, you'll need to sign a lease and pay a deposit. Make sure to read the lease carefully and understand all the terms before signing. Remember, finding a place to live can take time, so it's a good idea to start your search well in advance of your move," said one expat in Antigua.
