Real estate investment in Liechtenstein

The sale of real estate to foreigners is restricted in Liechtenstein: to purchase, you need to obtain a residence permit, live in the country for at least three years, and get permission from the government.

The cost of real estate depends on the area, the year of construction, the view from the window, and the presence of a terrace and underground parking.
