Are foreigners allowed to own property in Austria?

Answer this Question

When we asked expats in Austria if foreigners are allowed to own property, they answered...

"Yes, foreigners are allowed to own property in Austria. Non-EU citizens must obtain a residence permit in order to purchase property in Austria. EU citizens are allowed to purchase property without a residence permit. However, they must register with the local authorities and provide proof of sufficient financial resources to cover the purchase. Non-EU citizens must also provide proof of sufficient financial resources and must obtain a residence permit before they can purchase property in Austria," explained one expat living in Austria.
