Seaviews or Countryside Views?
It does not matter where you are in Malta or Gozo, the sea is never far away… but when it comes to having an actual sea or countryside view, the same cannot be said for many of its properties. Many decades ago, whether your property had a view or not did not matter and it did not count towards the property’s intrinsic value. As time marched on, views have become one of, if not the biggest plus points of any property’s value. Add to that close proximity in location to the sea and you are looking at considerable more value adhered to your property.
The reasons for this are that:
- Socially and economically our society has shifted to placing more emphasis on having a quality lifestyle rather than just considering the home as a place to sleep and rejuvenate, ready for another day’s work.
- For any property to have sea or countryside views or to be within walking distance to beaches and promenades opens up a whole slew of possibilities:
- firstly, of course, it will qualify as a family home just like any other, but
- it will now also offer significant opportunities such as renting it out to the tourism market on short lets due to its location and views and
- additionally stand far better chances of being sold at a premium price to foreign investors, expat retirees and those wanting a second or holiday home in Malta.
The demand for apartments and penthouses with a view.
Add to that the fact that many sought-after apartments and penthouses in Malta and Gozo are just across the street from promenades, beaches and close to tourist hotspots or you may even have a house of character that is located on a cliff edge with views over the Gozo channel! What could be better than sitting on your terrace, large balcony or in your living room with a glass of wine peering at everything that is going on? Properties with views are undoubtedly more expensive for good reason, but their value continues to climb and they hold their ground extremely well during times of recession or economic uncertainty.
Investing in a home with impressive, guaranteed views is thus guaranteed to bring in handsome dividends during its lifetime and upon selling it. We look at some of the most desirable properties currently on the market in this category.
