How do I find a place to live in Medina?

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

"Finding a place to live in Medina involves several steps. First, you need to determine your budget. This will help you narrow down your options and make your search more efficient. Next, you should decide on the type of accommodation you want. This could be an apartment, a house, or a villa. Once you have a clear idea of what you're looking for, you can start your search. There are several online platforms where you can find listings for properties in Medina, such as Bayut, Property Finder, and expatriates.com. These websites allow you to filter your search based on your preferences, such as location, price, and type of property. You can also hire a real estate agent to help you with your search. They can provide you with valuable insights about the local market and help you negotiate the best deal. When you find a property you're interested in, make sure to visit it in person. This will give you a better idea of its condition and whether it meets your needs. Before signing a lease, make sure to read it carefully and understand all the terms and conditions. If you're not fluent in Arabic, you might want to hire a translator to help you with this. Finally, once you've found a place you're happy with, you can proceed with the necessary paperwork to secure your new home. This usually involves providing proof of income, a copy of your passport, and a security deposit. Remember, finding a place to live in a new city can take time, so be patient and don't rush the process," explained one expat living in Medina, Saudi Arabia.
