How do I find a place to live in Abha?

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

"Finding a place to live in Abha involves several steps. First, you need to determine your budget and the type of accommodation you are looking for. This could range from apartments, villas, or even shared accommodations. Next, you should research the different neighborhoods in Abha to find one that suits your lifestyle and preferences. Some popular residential areas include Asir, Al Soudah Park, and Habala Village. Consider factors such as proximity to work or school, availability of public transportation, safety, and nearby amenities such as shops, restaurants, and parks. Once you have a clear idea of what you're looking for, you can start your search. There are several online real estate portals that list properties for rent or sale in Abha, such as Bayut, Propertyfinder, and expatriates.com. These websites allow you to filter your search based on location, property type, price range, and other criteria. Alternatively, you can engage the services of a real estate agent. They can provide valuable local knowledge, help you navigate the rental or buying process, and negotiate on your behalf. Make sure to choose a reputable agent who is registered with the Saudi Real Estate Institute. Before making a decision, it's important to visit the property in person. Check the condition of the property, ask about any additional fees or charges, and try to meet the landlord or property manager if possible. Finally, once you've found a place you like, you'll need to sign a lease or purchase agreement. In Saudi Arabia, this typically involves providing a copy of your passport, visa, and proof of income. Make sure to read the contract carefully and understand all the terms before signing. Remember, finding a place to live can take time, so it's best to start your search well in advance of your move," explained one expat living in Abha, Saudi Arabia.
