Is Austrian property a good investment?
Austria is fast becoming the intelligent investor’s business decision. Austrian property offers superb rental income potential for buyers, with one of the benefits being that it offers great dual seasonality with two high seasons in one year: winter for ski holidays, and summer for hiking, cycling and swimming in the warm lakes. Purchasing a new-build property can have tax advantages as it is possible to reclaim part, or all of the VAT on your purchase giving a discount of up to 20%. To be eligible for this VAT discount you would be expected to rent your property professionally when you are not using it and you will need to show an overall profit over a period of 20 years.
