Needless to say, shelter is one of the most basic human necessities. With that in mind, you’re going to need a semi-permanent living arrangement if you plan on staying in Andorra long term (unless you can afford to live in a hotel indefinitely).
Housing prices can vary greatly, depending on where in Andorra you plan on settling down. If you want to become a longtime resident, you’ll have to make the choice to either rent or invest in real estate.

If you’re looking to put down your roots in Andorra or if your life situation demands a long-term stay, buying a house or an apartment might make more sense than renting. Real estate prices here, much like in any country, are going to vary based on property specifications and more importantly, the location.
Generally, if you want to buy a modern two-bedroom apartment, expect to pay between €250,000 and €400,000. To make calculations simpler, here’s an estimate of Andorran property costs per square metre:
Apartments: €3,268 per square metre
Townhouses and chalets: €2,700-€3,000 per square metre
Land: €727 per square metre
Obviously, depending on the location, the price can be higher or lower. Pricing will also depend on the number of bedrooms and bathrooms. Additionally, amenities like parking or extra storage may also up the price.
