Property in Monaco for Sale
The property market for buying and selling properties in Monaco has been fairly quiet since the start of the recession. However, in 2013 we are now starting to see an increase in the number of properties for sale in Monaco resulting as completed transactions. Whereas prior to the recession, prices were not that negotiable, some owners wishing to sell their property are now a little more flexible.
The Monaco real estate market is open to all types of investors, whether they reside in Monaco or not. If you wish to buy property in Monaco purely as an investment, as many clients do, you can buy and rent out your Monaco property if you wish, to produce a rental income. There is a shortage of rental properties currently available in Monaco, so demand is good. Monaco rental properties are being quickly snapped up, due to the high number of persons applying for Monaco residency and needing to rent a home, which is a condition for residency being granted. You may however, choose to live in your Monaco property yourself whether as a resident of Monaco, or if not a resident, to have this as a wonderful holiday home in Monaco. The superb Mediterranean climates, high security, international environment, the beautiful surrounding coastline in the area and of course the advantageous tax system for Monaco residents, all support the prices of property in Monaco.
WW Relocation can assist and guide clients considering buying property in Monaco. We carry out a property search, based upon your parameters/guidelines, researching property in Monaco for sale which may match these criteria and sending you a shortlist of property details for your consideration. We will then arrange a schedule of viewings (when you visit Monaco) of the properties in Monaco which we consider suitable for your needs.
Where to buy Monaco property.
Monaco is approximately 2 kilometers sq. and Monaco consists of different areas. Although not large in size, Monaco offers a very good array of excellent shops, restaurants, schools, and entertainment. One of the most expensive and desirable places to buy Monaco property is the Casino Square, known locally as Le Carre d’Or (Golden Triangle). This is one of the most expensive areas to either purchase or rent property in Monaco. Also the area of Larvotto( Avenue Princesse Grace) which is next to the fashionable beaches of Monaco is very popular and prices reflect this. The Jardin Exotique at the Western entrance to Monaco, and the Quartier St. Romain at the Eastern end of Monaco, close to the Monaco Beach and Country Clubs, are also good locations with some very nice apartment buildings to choose from. Fontvielle, is a more recently developed area, built on reclaimed land, it is quite popular as close to the International school and the Monaco Heliport and can be quieter than the main part of Monaco. The area around the Port of Monaco ( Port Hercule) is a very interesting spot as there are always many wonderful yachts as well as local fishing boats moored at all times during the year with the nautical activity providing a fascinating spectacle.
How to buy property for Sale Monaco
There are many real estate agents in Monaco offering a diverse selection of properties for sale and rent in Monaco. Real estate agents in Monaco are authorized to both rent and sell property in Monaco. They must be licensed to operate in the real estate sector, and governed by the Chambre Immobiliere Monegasque. The Chambre has a duty to ensure that all real estate agents in Monaco adhere to the code of conduct for their profession. It is generally advisable to work with one or two agents as the market is small so many agents offer the same properties.
