Have you always thought that an alpine home is a luxury reserved for the wealthy few and is beyond your means? Well, not any more. Whilst in the more glitzy Austrian ski resorts, multi-million ski chalets continue to dominate the property market, most of the brand new construction projects actually cater for those on a more reasonable budget. Moreover, many new ski properties carry the obligation to be rented out to tourists in owners’ absence offering an attractive rental yield.
For UK homebuyers, with Brexit looming and the ongoing lack of clarity around the direction of UK house prices, investing your extra cash in the stable Austrian property market makes even more sense and can prove to be a sound investment diversification. And with its incredibly hospitality, amazing choice of year-round activities and constantly improving ski infrastructure, you will never look back. So what alpine property and in which Austrian resort can you afford with your budget ?

You will be surprised that even on a relatively modest budget, which would buy you at best a parking slot in central London, Austria gives you plenty of choice. If easy commute is your number one requirement, then the Alpendorf ski resort could be the ultimate spot for you. Situated only 45min drive from Salzburg, the quaint village provides access to a 120km vast interconnected ski area. Domus Global offers hotel-style fully serviced apartments starting from €100,000 in a brand new development enviably located just a short walking distance from the lifts and the lively village centre.
An equally attractive option is the Ossiach lake in Carinthia, a true dual-season alpine resort. Enjoying a pleasant Adriatic climate yet an abundance of snow in winter, this region is a paradise for any outdoor sports lovers. Domus Global offers design apartments in two new stylish developments on the lake shore starting from €129,000, both just a stone’s throw away from the Gerlitzen ski resort boasting over 40km of well-maintained slopes.
If you look for an off-the-radar up-and-coming destination, you should consider the beautiful Styrian resort of Tauplitz. Ski properties here benefit from more flexibility when it comes to owners’ use which will be appreciated by those who look primarily for a holiday home. Our portfolio includes 3 different brand new properties in Tauplitz, all appointed in modern alpine style, starting from €160,000.

With a budget of EUR 500,000, no Austrian resort will be off limits. If year-round glacier skiing is your thing, then Zell am See - Kaprun is a great choice. There not many other places where you can ski in the morning, then swap your skis for bikinis and jump in the crystal clear lake for a refreshing swim. If this sounds appealing, definitely take a look at our two swanky new developments we offer in the area.
Another popular ski resort in the magical Pinzgau region is the Wildkogel Arena. Here your budget can get you an apartment in one of the most exciting projects on the market now, a gorgeous brand new development in Neukirchen am Großvenediger. Prices start from €489,000 for a 2-bedroom unit.
