Real estate investment in Denmark

Denmark limits real estate sales to foreigners: one must have a residence permit and live in the country for at least five years to buy a property. A legal entity can purchase real estate: one must open a company in Denmark for this.

Statistics confirm the liquidity of investments: residential real estate prices grow by an average of 1,5% every quarter. Five years ago, an apartment of 100 m² cost an average of €312,000, and today it is sold for €401,000.
