Types of properties and properties available

The Monegasque real estate market offers a variety of property types, ranging from luxury apartments to sumptuous villas. Apartments are the most common properties in Monaco, offering modern amenities, panoramic sea or city views, as well as high-end amenities. A luxury residence offers you an exceptional living environment, with spacious spaces, private gardens, swimming pools and exclusive services such as 24-hour concierge.


The most popular areas of Monaco

Monaco is divided into different districts, each with its distinct characteristics. The Monte Carlo district is the most famous, offering glamour, vibrant nightlife and luxury shopping. The district of La Condamine is famous for its marina where the F1 Grand Prix takes place, while the district of Fontvieille offers a quiet residential environment with green spaces. It is important to discover the different neighborhoods and their particularities to find the ideal location for your future property in Monaco.


What are the real estate particularities to know?

Each district of Monaco has its own housing regulations. Here is an overview of the different categories of housing:

  • The free sector: It includes dwellings located in buildings built after September 1, 1947. In this category, the dwellings can be rented freely, without any restrictions related to the nationality of the tenant. The duration of the lease and the amount of rent are determined by the landlord.
  • The federal sector: This category concerns government-owned housing and is allocated exclusively to Monegasque residents.
  • The regulated sector: This sector includes housing built before September 1, 1947 and is subject to a right of first refusal by the government in the event of a sale. It is divided into two subcategories:
  • The protected sector: Reserved for people recognized as protected by the Housing Directorate, this sector allows the rental of housing according to certain conditions, such as income level.
  • The liberalized sector: Intended for people who have resided in Monaco for at least five years and have been working for at least six months on the Rock, as well as people who have been employed for five years in this country. Accommodations in this category are subject to specific rules.
  • The Caisse Autonome des Retraites also has a real estate portfolio in Monaco, which is available for rent.


Monegasque legislation

You must meet certain conditions to live in Monaco and be a Monegasque resident. Indeed, to stay on its territory for more than three months or to establish residence there after the purchase of a property, it is necessary to apply for a long-stay permit from the Monegasque authorities. This residence permit certifies the authorization given to a foreign national over 16 years of age to stay more than three months in the national territory or to settle there. Certain supporting documents and documents should also be submitted. Another requirement is that the applicant must hold an employment contract in Monaco, or have sufficient savings in a bank account in the Principality. We advise you to open a bank account with a bank in Monaco beforehand. For citizens of the European Union, no visa procedure is required. However, for non-European (EEA) economic nationals, a visa application or settlement permit is required from the immigration service. Working with a specialized real estate agency will help you navigate the administrative procedures efficiently and gather the necessary documents.


The different phases of a property acquisition process in Monaco

The first step to becoming a homeowner in Monaco is to identify the property that matches your needs and criteria. For this, our agency Petrini Exclusive Real Estate Monaco accompanies you in the purchase of your apartment. Whether you want a three-room apartment on the port, a sea view terrace, an indoor swimming pool or a villa in Fontvieille we will find the building that meets your requirements.

Once you have identified potential properties, we carry out visits. The assistance of one of our real estate agent will be invaluable in guiding you through this process. After finding the ideal property, we can start negotiations with the seller to agree on the conditions of sale.

Once the conditions of sale have been accepted, a sales contract will be drawn up between the buyer and the seller. Hiring a notary in Monaco is necessary to supervise the transaction and ensure that all legal formalities are respected.

After the conclusion of the sales contract, there are still some formalities to be completed, including the completion of administrative and legal procedures, the transfer of funds and the registration of the property in the Monegasque real estate registry.

Thus, becoming an owner and resident in Monaco offers many advantages, but requires a good knowledge of the particularities of the Monegasque real estate market and the legislative framework. Carrying out the work with experienced professionals in the field of real estate in Monaco will help you navigate this complex process effectively and make your real estate project a reality in this prestigious principality.
