House Hunting in Arusha
House Hungint in Arusha: Most expats will rent a house or apartment when they move to Arusha. When you arrive, I would recommend staying in a hotel or temporary housing and search for your ideal home when you are here.
While you may be able to find adverts online or in expat forums, it’s best that you get to see the property in person before signing a contract. You can hire a local broker to assist with this or talk to other expats living in the area. Talking to expats is also a good way to gauge property prices in that area too.
But before you move in anywhere you need to ask:
- #1. Does the property get good and sufficient water and electricity?
- #2. Is it furnished/unfurnished?
- #3. Can you get internet in your area?
- #4. Who will pay for repairs – you or your landlord?
- #5. Are utilities included in the rental price?
- #6. How secure is the compound? Is there a house alarm and a security guard on duty 24 hours a day?
Once you have found somewhere that meets your requirements, you can then negotiate a rental price and draw up a contract with your landlord. Most will ask you to either sign up to a six or three-month lease and pay the money up front.
