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 buy.
Property Rental Costs
Just like most places in the world, the property rental market in Andorra has its own quirks and features. Prices vary depending on the location, the number of baths, bedrooms, and benefits such as parking. Generally, you’ll find that apartment rental costs range between €500 and €1,500 per month. Most of the time the number will fall somewhere between the two extremes.
Here’s an overview of apartment rental costs in Andorra:
1 bed/1 bath studio apartment outside the city center will cost between €400-550/month
A quality 2bed/1bath unfurnished apartment in La Massana costs between €650-€800/month
Real Estate Purchase Costs
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 a list of Andorran property costs per square metre:
Apartments: €3468 per square metre
Townhouses and Chalets: €3,922 per square metre
Land: €800 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. Always consult with our frequently updated property guides when looking to buy or rent.
