Should I buy or rent a home in Jeddah?
If you have not spent a lot of time in Jeddah, you should rent before even thinking about buying. We asked expats there about the buy vs. rent decision...
"When deciding whether to buy or rent a home in Jeddah, it is important to consider your budget, lifestyle, and long-term plans. Buying a home in Jeddah can be a great investment, as the city is growing rapidly and property values are increasing. However, it is important to factor in the cost of maintenance and repairs, as well as the cost of a down payment. Renting a home in Jeddah can be a more affordable option, and it can provide more flexibility if you are not sure how long you will be living in the city. Ultimately, the decision to buy or rent a home in Jeddah should be based on your individual needs and preferences," said another expat in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
