About Monaco

A destination for business, leisure and investment

Situated between the French Code d’Azur and Italian Riviera famed for its casinos, Grand Prix and royal family, Monaco appeals to its residents as a business hub and leisure destination thanks to its low-taxation and exceptional standard of living.

At just 2.2km2 in size and home to roughly 38,000 people, Monaco experiences new resident applications from high-net worth individuals every year. The mini-country is simply running low on available accommodation which continues to drive property prices.

Top 20 cities in Europe ranked by density of millionaires

Monaco’s population has grown 24% since 1990, driven by in-migration of wealthy individuals. Mon-Monégasque residents account for a huge 78% of the population.

A large proportion of Monaco’s housing stock was developed in the 1960s and 70s, and many of these properties are looking dated and ripe for renewal and refurbishment.

New Development Example

Work began on Project Portier in 2017 and is due to complete in 2025. The ambitious sea reclamation which will add six hectares of new land reclamation into the sea. This privately financed €2bn scheme will see Monaco grow in size by 3% and create accommodation for up to 1000 new residents but will only make a dent in the housing supply shortage.

Monaco Outlook

Prices to remain at record highs.

Buyers are becomming more price sensetive, but with an onging supply-demand imbalace, Savills don’t forsee any potential for downward adjustment

Shortage of new properties for sale.

There were no new building completions in 2016 and not until Le Portier completes will there be any volume of new supply. Savills anticipate a shortage of new product in the near term.

Building a world-class destination.

Monaco is currently investing extensively in infrastructure to secure its position as a world-class business and leisure destination

Ongoing global political uncertainty.

While some are adoption a ‘wait and see’ approach, in the long term Monaco’s safe-haven credentials will underpin demand. Changes to the UK’s non-domicile rules from 2017 could see more expats choosing Monaco as a base.
