1. Why buy real estate in Malta?

If you’re planning to buy real estate in Malta, the question that comes to mind as a first-time buyer from abroad is: Why Malta? Well, for one thing, this lovely little island-state in the Mediterranean Sea, which is divided into various regions – north, south, east, west and central Malta – offers fantastic weather all year round with lots of excellent beaches to enjoy, rich history to absorb and beautiful landscapes to explore. 

And of course the warm-hearted people of Malta are more than happy to welcome new residents into their community. Language problems? Not here, because English is an official language and spoken fluently. And no worries when it comes to any services you may need because as an EU member state, Malta is a very safe country to live in with a well-developed infrastructure providing you with excellent healthcare, and for parents with children there are top-rate schools here for their educational needs. As experienced real estate customers from abroad and local residents of Malta know, the country’s low cost of living and tax rates together with its very stable property market make it an ideal place for home ownership or real estate investments. As a leading real estate agent, Engel & Völkers has an attractive portfolio of prime residential properties including apartments, houses, villas and palazzos for sale.

2. Malta and its regions – North, South, East, West, and Central

Malta may be a small island, but for someone looking to buy or rent a property, knowing a bit about the individual regions can narrow down where to begin searching. The focal point of Malta’s northern region is the coastal area in the north of the island. This is where the Mediterranean Sea and the many excellent sandy beaches join forces with the region’s vibrant nightlife to make the various locations in this area an ideal place for those who enjoy the seaside and want to establish a new residence by purchasing or renting a property. Malta’s southern region, covering the southern part of the main island, is different as the lifestyle here is rather quieter and more low key, reflecting its village type of environment. The key locations here have retained their authenticity and their charm and look back on a long and rich history, perfect for a residence set in a more sedate setting. 

Malta’s eastern region, on the other hand, draws many tourists and prospective new residents alike as its shopping and entertainment opportunities are key attractions along with its well-developed infrastructure. Malta’s capital Valletta is situated here, a mecca for historical and architectural highlights as well as endless shopping and entertainment. The island’s western region, more sparsely populated, is renowned not only for its lovely countryside and scenery, but also for its rich history, with strong roots in ancient and medieval times, and for its architectural treasures from the Norman and Baroque periods. Malta’s central region is the least developed part of the country with only few hotels but rich in history and open countryside. However, it is also home to several highly preferred residential locations and one of Malta’s largest towns, combining both modern urban-oriented and more traditional lifestyles.

4. Renting property in Malta

Whether you’re planning to move and live in Malta for a limited period or permanently, you may want to consider first renting an apartment or house before purchasing a property. The advantage of this approach is that it will give you ample time to get to know the island and familiarize yourself with the real estate market. 

As the process of searching for suitable rental accommodations can be daunting, especially in light of recent changes to legislation regarding the rental of residential property, let our local Engel & Völkers real estate experts help you find the right rental option for your needs. The recent legislation introduced new requirements for both tenants and landlords, and our agents are ready to assist you in any way and to ensure that there are no loose ends when entering into a rental contract by registering the rental contract on your behalf and compiling the inventory of the contents of your rental property. Our mission is to make the transition to your new home in Malta as smooth as possible.

5. Selling / renting out real estate

If you already own a property in Malta and you want to sell it or perhaps rent it out on a short- or long-term basis, now may be a good time due to the booming economy and strong demand for exclusive properties. As an international leader in the marketing of prime residential real estate, our unique global network has access to potential buyers or renters of select properties. 

Our Engels & Völkers full-service package is designed to accompany and assist you every step of the way from your first contact and individual consultation through to a free and non-binding property appraisal, an individually tailored and exclusive marketing concept, the creation of an exclusive property brochure, generating exposure through our international network of contacts and our wide-ranging online portfolio, right up to the closing and handing over the keys, all capped off by our exclusive after sales service. For landlords wanting to let their properties, our rental experts at Engels & Völkers are there not only to ensure that your property has maximum exposure leading to a successful let with optimal results, but also to provide the service that will guide you through all the legal and taxation aspects that letting entails.

Malta – the right place to buy property?

If you’re planning to buy or rent real estate for the first time in Malta, why choose Malta? The key reason is likely to be the weather, which is fantastic all year round on this island in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea. And of course, there are those lovely beaches and the beautiful countryside to enjoy. Add to that the friendly, warm-hearted people of Malta and all the other benefits of life on this idyllic island and you should be ready to contact Engel & Völkers and our real estate agents and set an appointment to look for an apartment, a house or a villa up for sale or rent in one of our many locations in Malta.


Dividing up the map - the five regions of Malta

Malta is small, but you need to familiarise yourself with the island’s regions to know where to start searching for your dream-come-true apartment, house or villa. Northern Malta is mainly a coastal area with excellent beaches and a pulsating nightlife, making it an attractive place to buy or rent a property, while the southern region is rather more sedate with a village type of lifestyle, and there are a host of attractive properties on offer for purchase or for rent in our Engel & Völkers property portfolio. The eastern region’s key attractions are shopping and entertainment, with plenty of exclusive real estate buying and renting opportunities. The western region is known for its beautiful countryside, its colourful history and its rich architecture, with a wide range of real estate buying opportunities. The central region has several preferred residential locations with select properties for sale or for rent through our expert real estate agents.


Rental options in Malta 

We suggest that you first rent a house or an apartment after moving to Malta because this will give you sufficient time to settle in and get to know the island and the real estate market. To speed up the process and ensure a smooth transition let our local Engel & Völkers real estate experts help you find the rental option that best suits your needs and let us take care of all the formalities involved in a rental contract in light of the recent changes to legislation regarding the renting of residential property. Our full service includes registering the rental contract on your behalf and compiling the inventory of the contents of your rental property.

Our full-service package will help you from your first contact with us through all the interim stages, such as a free and non-binding property appraisal, an individually tailored and exclusive marketing concept, an exclusive property brochure, etc., right up to the closing of the deal, including our exclusive after-sales service. For landlords, our rental experts at Engels & Völkers ensure maximum exposure leading to a successful let and provide legal and taxation guidance.
