The real estate market
Beautiful homes: a perfect foundation for your new life
The Maltese real estate market offers a wide range of quality residential property:
- Period properties
- Modern Bungalows
- Farm Houses
- Terraced House
- Town Houses
Properties can be rented or purchased through local and international real estate agencies.
When looking for property in Malta, you should note that:
Properties are often marketed via a number of different agencies.
The websites of agencies are not always up to date
Although there is a lot of high quality property available in Malta, many of the traditional homes marketed do not meet the requirements of foreigners because they are often long and narrow with only small windows. Balconies are often small too because the Maltese prefer to stay inside.
Unlike some EU countries, it is not common in Malta to specify how much space there is in properties. As in the UK property market, the number of bedrooms tends to be specified instead e.g. an offer with 3 bedrooms would compare with the German “4 1/2 rooms.”
Foreigners can purchase property in Malta. There are many purpose-built housing developments, such as for example MadlienaVillage, FortCambridge, PenderGardens, Portomaso, Tigné Point, St Angelo Mansions, Tas-Sellum, Ta ‘Monita, Chambrai – Gozo Kempinski Residences etc.
