Due to the high price of real estate in Sri Lanka, rental properties are a more convenient alternative for many. Expats find a house for rent in Sri Lanka a cheaper option compared to houses for sale in Sri Lanka due to tax reasons. Vacation rentals are on a short term basis and ideal for tourists. But those who move to the country for the long term can find fully furnished houses with a range of facilities in highly residential areas. Air conditioned bed rooms are important, especially due to the tropical weather and hot summer days. Rent in Sri Lanka varies based on the location. In the city centre the average price of a single story, 1 bedroom house for rent is likely to be Rs. 40-60,000 while outside the city centre the rent is much lower between Rs. 15-25,000. A 2 to 3 bedrooms’ house is ideal for an average family with dining and living rooms, house located close to local amenities. The surrounding facilities also affect the house rent.
