As we embark on the early days of 2022 and embrace the possibilities that a new year affords, it’s the perfect time to look for new property investment.

Search volume on Google for keywords around real estate spikes early in the year as property investors start their real estate search after the festive period. This is especially true for on-demand destinations such as the Principality of Monaco – the world’s most expensive and sought-after real estate hot spot.

Real estate agencies seeking to capitalise on this trend tend to advertise their top listings during the period between the new year and Easter when interest and demand are at their highest. 

For these reasons, early in the new year is the best time to buy Monaco real estate. Not only will investors benefit from a selection of the finest property for sale, but they will also have all the purchase legalities settled by the end of spring, enabling them to move in and enjoy Monaco’s superb summer weather. And for those with children, it also allows them to be all moved in and ready for the start of a new school year in September.

How to find Monaco real estate

While you might begin your search with a bit of browsing online, the absolute best way to find prime properties in Monaco is by working with a reputable real estate agency, especially as many of Monaco’s finest properties are sold off-market.

In addition to having extensive knowledge of the principality’s property market, bona fide agents can assist as you search for a property that uniquely meets your needs.  

Where to find Monaco real estate
