altThe home market in Monaco has been more active recently after a very sluggish interval overall since the Economic problems of late 2007/2008. The problems with the global economy infiltrated to the Monaco property market resulting in several years of low interest by potential purchasers due to the international uncertainties we all dealt with. Monaco property owners overall pulled back from selling their properties as conditions weren't ideal and as many Monaco property owners are not speculators, rather longer term investors keen to protect their money, they didn't have to offer to cover loans as most Monaco properties are fully paid for at the time of purchase.

One more aspect creating more activity, in addition to the international economic conditions and hence confidence to invest again in Monaco real estate, is that new residents to Monaco are finding it increasingly hard to find suitable rental apartments as there's more demand than supply, combined with very high rental prices due to the current lack of rental properties.

New citizens are increasingly thinking about acquiring their property in Monaco, and as selected banks in Monaco want to lend clients to purchase Monaco property, with Euro interest rates at all-time lows, it is a financially feasible alternative for those with adequate collateral to place with the loaning bank. Loans are normally made at 60-- 70 per cent loan to value, sometimes more when the customer has enough assets to lodge with the bank through cash or a portfolio of marketable securities (global bonds/ equities/investment funds.) If in cash, the security placed with the bank may be carefully invested to create an annual return which matches or exceeds the rate of interest charged on the loan, so this could be an additional benefit. Loans on Monaco property are generally designed for a duration of 5 years, sustainable for a maximum of 3 times (15 years).

The prices of properties to purchase in Monaco differs significantly, with the lower prices per square metre beginning at around EUR 25,000 to the highest which can exceed EUR 90,000 per square metre.
