Rental Obligation?            – complete flexibility!
Every EU citizen can have permanent residence in Austria and you can elect to use one of the Blumenwiese Apartments as your main
home if you choose. If you do not want to live in your apartment permanently you are obliged to make it available to use as a holiday
home. There are two ways you can do this:
Private Holiday Home – For owners wanting to make the maximum use of their apartment and have complete flexibility, they can rent their
apartment privately to friends and family.
Commercial Holiday Home – The benefit of renting your apartment on a commercial basis is that your property can be professionally
rented out through a tour operator and earning an income for you whilst you are not using it. We have several tour operators we can
recommend that will rent your apartment for you.
Which ever option you choose, the dedicated management company can deal with the hand-over of keys for your guests, and a laundry
and cleaning service will deal with the change-over when your guests have departed.

Bank Finance
Austrian banks will fund up to 70% of the purchase price and can usually lend up to a period of 25 years. Variable interest rates are
currently at around 3.5%, although it is possible to have a 1-year fixed rate mortgage at 3.37% or 5-years fixed at 4%. The purchase costs
of buying your property in Austria can now also be added into your mortgage if you wish! For more information on Austrian Mortgages
please contact us.

Purchase Costs
Purchase costs for buying an apartment work out about 6.5% of the gross purchase price. The Purchaser will be required to pay the notary
fees after the contract of sale has been signed and the notary has sent off all the papers to obtain the foreigner purchase permit. Fees are
calculated as follows:
•           Purchase Tax ‘Stamp Duty’ is 3.5% of the gross purchase price
•           Entry to the Land Registry is 1% of the gross purchase price
•           Notary’s fees – 2% of the gross purchase price plus VAT
•           Court costs, administration fees – approx 150 euros
If you are taking a mortgage the fees involved add up to approx 4% of the value of the loan you will be taking. These comprise a bank set
up fee of around 2%, an appraisal fee of 0.5% and you will also need to pay a 1.5% mortgage registration fee. All the above fees can be
incorporated into your mortgage if you like.

Resort Information - The Gastein Valley
We have been specialising in Alpine property for over 20 years and
in our experience buyers always look for three things when
choosing a resort to buy a ski property. They want a lively dual
season resort with a large ski area or access to high altitude skiing
and it must be within one and a half hours of an international
airport. Bad Gastein ticks all three boxes and is the perfect choice.
The Gastein Valley is made up of three attractive towns:
Bad Gastein - The stunning belle époque town of Bad Gastein is
situated high in the Gastein valley with a natural waterfall cascading
through the very heart of the town. Its thermal spas are famous
throughout Europe and Bad Gastein retains its imposing grandeur
that made it hugely popular at the turn of the 20th century.
Nowadays not only the spa, but also the great skiing, fantastic
scenery, luxurious casino, and fine restaurants which draw in the
sophisticated traveller seeking a resort in a romantic period setting.
Bad Hofgastein - Bad Hofgastein is just ten minutes down the road
and is a busy metropolis with fashionable designer shops and fine
restaurants. The town boasts some of the best spa hotels in Europe
including the superb 5 star Grand Park Hotel. It is also home to
another super Alpine Thermé complex (see below) there are plenty
of charming coffee bars, a beautiful park and outdoor ice skating in
the pedestrianised centre of this charming town.
Dorfgastein – At the entrance to the Gastein valley this charming
village is famous for its solar baths and fairytale stalactite cave.
Keeping the children entertained is never a problem with a miniature
railway, waterslides and child-only ski slopes

Investment
Bad Gastein is more than just a ski
resort: it is stunning spa town and
therefore it has a particularly long tourist
season. Bad Gastein is a well respected
ski resort with modern lifts and an
extensive and high altitude ski region
(offering more skiing than Kitzbuhel,
Obertauern, Schladming or Zell am
See). It also has natural thermal spas
which are famous throughout Europe for
their fun, relaxation and healing qualities.
The Gastein region is a pleasure to visit
not just in winter or summer but also well
into the autumn so higher than average
occupancy rates are achievable.
As far as capital investment is concerned
Bad Gastein was very popular in the
1960’s and attracted stars such as Liza
Minelli. Now it is on its way up again with
millions of euros being invested into the
town. Many of the old hotels are being
renovated or redeveloped by Dutch,
Danish,      German        and     Austrian
developers. An Italian hotel group is
investing in a cool boutique hotel, and
16.8 million euros is being injected into
the ski region. If you are looking for
capital appreciation, Bad Gastein is a
good investment.

Winter & Skiing
With 200km of piste the Gastein valley offers a fantastic skiing area with 60 km of easy, 117 km intermediate and 24 km difficult runs and
includes family-style hills, carving hills, deep-snow and moguls runs. There is also 90km of cross-country skiing, floodlit tobogganing, ice
skating, curling, ice climbing, horse drawn sleighs and winter hiking. The skiing goes up to an altitude of over 2,600m. Bad Gastein is the
highest of the towns and its increasing popularity and superb ski conditions make it the ideal host for the 2008 Nokia Snowboard FIS
World Cup. The Gastein Ski Region also forms part of the vast Ski Amadé ski region www.skiamade.com offering 860km of skiing on one
pass www.gastein.com
An ambitious investment program of around 16.8 million euros for 2008 is currently under way. A new 8-person gondola cable car (The
Senderbahn) has been completed from ski-centre Angertal to Stubnerkogel, new pistes from Stubnerkogel and from Schlossalm to
Angertal. Improvement of snow-making facilities on Stubnerkogel and Schlossalm, replacing of snow-grooming-equipment like snow cats,
and the Children’s zone in Angertal has also been completed.

Spas
In addition to the many spa hotels in the valley there are also several fantastic public spa facilities fed by the seventeen thermal springs
that emerge into the Gastein region (Bad being German for spa). These thermal pools are great for both fun and relaxing with themed
pools with waterfalls, geysers and big water slides to keep the children (and adults) happy! The mountain location means that in addition
to the usual steam and sauna rooms most resorts offer, Gastein also has many cave based saunas and steam rooms. Bad Gastein has a
fantastic thermal complex with indoor and outdoor pools; and the spa at Bad Hofgastein even has six adventure and vitality worlds which
are spread out over 32,000 m2, featuring a unique, 360° panoramic view of the Alps, a sauna world with a mountain lake, leisure and
wellness areas, a multimedia adventure dome, and a glassed-in sky bar.
