Property in Wagrain
Property for sale in Wagrain has historically been very hard to find. Owners tend to keep their apartments and chalets and pass them from one generation to the next.
That said, there has been some recent development mainly around the Graffenberg lift.
The recently built Graffenberg Resort has the odd resale apartment for sale with prices from around EUR 250,000 for a one-bedroom apartment.
There is also a small collection of chalets situated right on the piste.
Although resales properties are rare, buyers could expect to pay between EUR 700,000 to EUR 1.5m for a detached chalet in a prime location in Wagrain.
When looking for a property for sale in Wagrain you also need to note the residential ‘status’ of the property since the Austrian laws are very strict.
If you wish to rent out your new holiday home then you will need to find a property that has ‘zweitwohnsitz’ or is designated for ‘touristic’ use.
Otherwise, the apartment or chalet is likely to be a ‘hauptwohnsitz’ or main residence and can only be used as such.
