Buying property in Madagascar


can a foreigner buy property in Madagascar?

If so, is it complicated? What is the process of purchasing a property in Madagascar?

Any tips for buying property, such as a check-list of items to verify ?

Thanks in advance for participating!


Hi Christine,
you can not easily have a property in Madagascar if you are a stranger. The best and easy way is to invest business here.
If you need to build a home just get in touch with me.


Thanks for your help ;)

Hi Christine,

don't know if your request is still on-going but there is a house for sale here: … -pool.html

Feel free to message me if you need more info!

The way I understand if you are a foreigner you are pay triple the price and your taxes too, so be aware of everything.

As a foreigner - if you don't invest quite a lot of money in a business - you cannot buy land. Land in Madagascar belongs to the ancestors: it is "Tanindrazana". You can conclude a "bail amphytheotique", which means renting and paying a house for a specific duration - don't know how much it is now, 99 years or less.
