Housing & Settling-In

Finding housing in the local market can be time consuming, stressful, and come with inflated rental prices - not to mention that maintenance and repairs are up to the renter to manage. Let Niofar take away this burden by offering you the best options according to your criteria, and even filling in the gaps for furniture, comfort, and security.

Housing Search

Do you not have the time to search? Or do you have a fairly specific request? Niofar offers a specialized search for your criteria - if the housing market has it, we will find it.

Using our partner network of more than 30+ legitimate real estate agents and owners, and a 22-point inspection vetting process, we propose the best options we have selected for you after just a week of looking.
 We then show you a Virtual Tour of the properties, as well as their specifications, so you can choose only the ones you are interested in to visit. We then provide comfortable transportation, accompany you for visits, interpret to-from English, provide basic lease negotiation and housing overview, and walk you through the lease finalization process.

Orientation Tour & Settling-In

Once you've got your housing arranged and have moved in - congrats! - now what? Let us guide you the process of getting "settled" - including:

  • Opening a Bank Account

  • School Search

  • Welcome Orientation (Introduction to Health Care facilities, Safety, Culture, and more)

  • City Tour (Local Embassy location, Supermarkets, Medical Clinics, Fitness Centers, Attractions, Monuments, and more)

  • Introductions to Social groups, Activities, Associations, Local clubs, Volunteer Opportunities, Parents groups, and more

  • Language Class Introductions (Wolof, French, Arabic)

Rental & Facilities Management

It's a little-known fact that in both countries, renters with a lease are responsible for all repairs and maintenance during their stay. Sometimes for short stays in furnished apartments, the owner takes care of large repairs, but there is little legal consequence if they are uncooperative.

Niofar offers a comprehensive, one-point-of contact for your apartment, including:

  • Plumbing

  • Electricity

  • Carpentry

  • Aluminum

  • Hardware

  • Painting

  • Air Conditioning

  • Appliances

  • Pest Control and Fumigation

  • Cleaning

  • Safety Materials (fire extinguishers, cameras, safety blankets, barbed wire, and more)

Furniture Rental

For 12-month or more stays in Dakar or Nouakchott, we can widen your search by proposing unfurnished properties and furnish it according to your budget and taste. Typically this option can be cheaper than furnished apartments that come as-is, and you can have more of an input for your decoration and furniture according to your personal taste. When it's time to leave, since you are only renting and have not made the purchase, you won't have to worry about selling the items before your departure.
