Who’s Buying?

Whos Buying Property Austria

Salzburger Land and the Tyrol have historically been dominated by German buyers, thanks to its location. In recent years, though, the rise of affordable air travel has brought in a growing number of international house-hunters. Today, the biggest groups of buyers of Austrian real estate on are from the UK, followed by Canada, Austria and the USA.

Holiday homes and condos are the order of the day, as lifestyle buyers look for affordable bargains near ski slopes and investors seek rental yields. Restrictions on foreign ownership, though, mean that not all international buyers can own property in the region.
