Salzburg Land Attracting Property Buyers

  • 15 years ago

Austria has long had stiff restrictions on foreign property buyers, which has tended to keep prices in many popular Alpine villages relatively low. Some parts of the country have relaxed those restrictions in recent years, bringing fresh opportunities for buyers of second homes and holiday retreats.
Salzburg Land, the region around the city of Salzburg, has some wonderful property at amazingly low prices. Property can be had from 2,000 to 3,000 euros per square meter, and higher end properties go for around 4,000 euros. That compares quite favorably with French Alpine property, which typically costs from 8,000 to 12,000 euros a square meter.
The city of Salzburg is a popular destination for visitors and home buyers. The birthplace of Mozart has an international airport (SZG) that has many flights from the UK and other European cities. It also has a very nice network of trains and busses that can take you anywhere you want to go, right into the many villages to ski from. This area has some of the finest skiing in the world, including the largest network of linked ski resorts anywhere in the world, the Ski Amade region. 

Property in this part of Austria can make for a potentially lucrative investment as well. The ski season is long, and many travelers want to rent a chalet or apartment during the season. Owners can have their holidays, and rent their holiday home out during the rest of the seas. See our Property For sale in Austria
