I was stationed in Morocco back in the late 70's I am looking for a nice flat for a single person in the heart of the city. I am seeking to buy property as is within the next year or so, so looking forward to seeing some nice flats in this areas.
#Hash on Dec 28, 2016 :
I tend to agree with Nawfal on the cost of living and earning potential to support it. But I agree with Fatia that Morocco is a "perfect" place: nice weather, great, friendly people, good food and something about the place makes you happy.

Mounir, is the apartment still for sale? which area is it located in?
#Tahir on Sep 19, 2016 :
I was visit in Morocco few month ago, as per my experience living cost much cheap compare to Bahrain Dubai Qatar Oman Kuwait approximately 60℅ lower price,
Note: I am talking about standard living life in Morocco, luxury life style there is no limit,
Few local are cheating you but majority locals very nice and humble persons compare to arabs

I think people exaggerate about the high cost of living in Morocco. I am a retired US citizen and I live in Morocco comfortable on a salay of $ 1500.
#Fatia on Apr 04, 2015 :
Nawfal i dont think you are totally right things has changed a lot
Morocco is the perfect place where everybody can survive.
#nawfal on Mar 18, 2015 :
I am Moroccan and I lived in New Zealand, Australia and Malaysia. Living expenses in Morocco is bloody expensive. We are an agriculture and exporter country of veg and fruits yet a medium income citizen can afford to buy! We have several thousand kilometres of coast (Atlantic & Mediterranean ) and the majority of Moroccans only can afford to consume sardines. Utilities like electricity, cooking gas, water etc are very expensive. If you are poor or medium class citizen and you fall sick then you are done for. Services at public hospitals are chargeable and service is below 0. You only can survive if you are wealthy and have a good salary. To sum up, to survive in Morocco you need to be someone or a EU retired from US, Canada, Australia, NZ or any developed country.
#Ausboy on Mar 07, 2015 :
