Malta has been one of the most desirable destinations when it comes to buying real estate or rental investment. This beautiful island attracts many people every single year. Even now, during the Covid 19 pandemic, statistics show that Malta is one of the top destinations which tourists from the UK plan to visit in the next 12 months.
It’s not uncommon for people to come to the island of Malta and Gozo just for a few days in the sun, but then fall in love with the place and end up buying a place short after. Of course, they have different needs. Some are looking for a luxurious place next to the busy spots like Sliema and St Julians, while others are searching for a quiet home with lovely country views.
You have undoubtedly heard the famous saying that there are only 3 things you need to consider when buying a property – Location, Location and Location.
Yes it sounds like a cliche, but the more time you spend researching an area the more likely you are to make the right decision.
