Malta Property Auctioneers held their 29th quarterly Auction last Saturday 30th January at the Royal Malta yacht Club. Another successful and satisfying auction for all the participants, both vendors and buyers with almost €6 million worth of property sold under the hammer.

“This was another pleasing event for us and we are really looking forward to launching our milestone 30th Auction. Nine years ago today we opened our doors and where a little skeptical whether the idea would take off in Malta. Today we are the smart choice for buying and selling real estate. So much so, that other names in the local Real estate scene are trying to dive into this more targeted business model.
“It was only a matter of time before others followed suit. In fact others have already tried and failed. It is very typical of the Maltese to take a good idea and try to make it their own, to see who is successful and try to steal their recipe, but we have been in business for nine years and we have established our own market niche. Besides, who wants to drink Star Cola when the original Coca Cola is sitting on the same shelf ??? “ – remarked Stefan Consiglio, when questioned about the hearsay that other property auctioneers where about to launch.
“To be a successful property Auctioneer one needs to have extensive knowledge in the local real estate market, an auctioneers licence and a team of highly trained sales agents – Our experience in real estate goes back over 30 years through Pierre Faure Real Estate. The other ingredient for a successful auction, is a large database of highly qualified investors together with an aggressive marketing campaign – both items we have been harvesting and perfecting bit by bit over the last 9 years as auctioneers.
“We are a company that keeps up with current trends in marketing and are always looking into the newest marketing mediums to get the best possible exposure for your property with the intention to sell it to the highest bidder within a short period of time by creating an environment of urgency. Our business model is a win-win situation for all parties and the results are there to be seen . Moreover we are always willing to work together on a commission sharing basis with other agencies or brokers making our sales force even larger – this way we do not close a window of opportunity to anyone but rather open doors to all – pun intended.”
Malta Property Auctioneers’ exact 30th Auction date will be announced shortly but will be held around April/May. We are currently in the process of putting another attractive portfolio of properties together so for those willing to sell their property fast and efficiently – now is the time!

Malta Property Auctioneers – The only Property Auction house in Malta

In the past, auctions were a relatively uncommon way to negotiate the exchange of property in Malta. Today, we at Malta Property Auctioneers, a brainchild of Pierre Faure Real Estate, have become a household name, synonymous with offering property vendors a different marketing tool. Different because it gets your property sold in a much faster timeframe and with lower expenses.

In practice, haggling and negotiating and sales by set-price have always been significantly more common. Today however, Malta Property Auctioneers have proven that you can sell your property for the highest price and within the shortest period of time.

“We have modeled a process that focuses on creating maximum exposure for a property combined with the element of urgency and efficiency. This is what our sellers are attracted to. What we do really well is delivering what we say we will! – provide a detailed, aggressive and attractive marketing campaign for your property both locally and overseas and combining it with our knowledge, expertise in the local real estate market. We offer buyers the opportunity to purchase properties at values much lower than what they might be advertised at with agencies yet at the price they are willing to pay.

“Our business model is a win-win situation for all parties – the buyers, the sellers and even third party intermediaries, as we are always willing to work together on a commission sharing basis should a purchaser be introduced by another agency or broker.”

Is This The Right Time To Buy  a Property in Malta???

It always seems to be! Says Stefan Consiglio, Manager at Pierre Faure Real Estate.

 

For all those first time buyers, foreigners seeking Permanent Residency in Malta, investors looking to take advantage of the rapid increase in rental prices or homeowners that are just seeking to upgrade their home. YES, this is the time to buy!!

We all know that over time property will always appreciate. Ever since I started my career in the Real Estate field 13 years ago, I always recall hearing the negative people talking about a bubble about to burst. So far, this hasn’t happened here in Malta. Yes there might have been a year or two where the increase wasn’t as large as other years, but Malta has yet to see a property bubble burst, and to be honest, I still don’t see it happening any time soon.  Bank interest rates have remained relatively low for a few years now  and the rental market is still extremely healthy, with prices still on the rise and demand still higher than supply.

Malta is a tiny island with land a true scarcity, but moreover it is one of the most populated countries in the world per capita and thousands of foreigners are still moving here annually. Some move here because of the weather, others because of the culture or friendliness of the Maltese people, others cause of the language or schooling, tax reasons or of late, simply because Malta is the iGaming and finance hub of the world. The place to be if that is your line of work. Whatever the reason, an increase in people moving to Malta will always result in an increase in demand for homes in Malta. There is an extremely good choice of property out there and this is definitely helping to keep the value of homes more competitive.

 

Rental returns a decade ago were a mere 3 to 4 % and you always had some vacant time in between finding “the right tenants.” Today properties in prime areas are never left vacant for very long and the normal yield is 5% with opportunities to invest with better returns also possible. So what more can one ask for?

Pierre Faure Real Estate has a number of Good Value homes to offer in Malta which can get much better returns than any other types of investment, and that is not even considering the capital appreciated on the property’s value over even a small number of years. So what are you waiting for?  Send us an email or give us a call and we will assist you throughout the whole transaction, from finding the right property to leasing it out to qualifies tenants at a good return.

Malta Property Market

The property market in Malta was one of the few European markets that did not struggle during the recent recession. The outlook for Malta remained as sunny as ever. Whilst things were certainly difficult for many European countries with bank collapses, property market slumps and rises in unemployment, Malta, the little nugget wedged between North Africa and Sicily,  remained an exception due to a number of factors.

Malta is a small island with a very high population density, with land being very scarce and therefor always valuable. Moreover, unlike other islands, the Maltese market has a large drive of local buyers who have already enjoyed the fruits of their investments over time.

This tiny island has a lot going for it – besides its strategic position in the middle of the med, the island is sun kissed the whole year round, English speaking and very safe, even politically stable. For Brits, Malta is a delightful mix of the exotic and familiar, so it is no wonder they buy property in Malta and soon make it their second home. The schooling and medical facilities are of very high standard, and the fact that foreigners do not need to learn a foreign tongue makes it all the more appealing.

It is to no surprise that foreign buyers are up again in numbers – The Maltese government promotes foreign investment through a number of schemes which are very attractive to both EU and Non- EU nationals. Malta has always been loved by overseas buyers who get to enjoy the historical and cultural diversity the island offers through its past.

Buying property in Malta is a relatively easy process with various experienced agents available to point you towards the right direction and throughout the whole transaction.  The procedure for arranging loans and financing from local banks is not too onerous and those who chose to move here full -time will tend to find the low-tax regime makes life easy – not that Malta doesn’t already have a good quality of life.
