I have had an apartment in Maria Alm for 2 years.
You will love it both in summer and winter. Any help I can give let me know.

If you are an EU citizen - you will have the same property rights and obligations as an Austrian citizen.
Look carefully about doing this purchase as the cost to maintain the property after the purchase can be very expensive, especially if you do not use it on a regular basis.
Many costs that you never think about.
Betriebskosten - maintenance costs, trash removal, water, sewer.
Some places have individual heating - others a common system- check this carefully. Winters are long and costs can be high.
You may need to share these costs equally with the other apartments in the building, even when you do not really use these things and the others do.
GIS - government fee for TV and radio - 20 plus Euro monthly - they will find you too if you do not pay.
As a vacationer- it is very nice - but think about your shopping requirements and where you must go for most other things
Maria Alm is nice during the winter and summer seasons. Go there in the “Off Season " before you buy and see how much you like it.

we are a little "italian" family, we live in Milano and we wouldlike to move in Austria... we hate here the citi and citizien.. and we fall in love for austria..
We are studing Germany but it isn't easy to learn without leaving on the land.. end with a little baby of 7 months
Our idea is to run an activity like as a pzzeria take away or a little italina restaurant.. in paricular in Tirol but also in Wien oder in Stiria.
Anybody got any advice?
Please write us if you look some advt about selling these kind of activity.

Just a warning for everyone who is not local and doing up houses etc in Austria; be very careful when getting workmen in Austria. We made the terrible error in Bad Ischl of hiring a Turkish man who was introduced to us by the estate agency and he scammed us and was very threatening when demanding money for faulty and incomplete work. Given we don't know the laws and they seem to target us, it can sometimes we worth paying up for people to come from the UK to work! Just a thought....Lynchie 19 Aug 2008, 07:10 - Verstoß melden
