The Tigné Point Project

Our current project is a luxury 2 bedroom seaview apartment in the exclusive Tigné PointMalta; which is selling now.  Owners will be able to enjoy a 25% share of this fabulous apartment for €165,000.  Please ask us about our Try Before You Buy Offer and/or about financing for qualified buyers.

Fractional Development Express has carefully selected this apartment as we believe that its location and views offer owners a luxurious and relaxing environment which can be enjoyed year round, whilst offering good opportunities for capital appreciation.

Tigné Point is approaching the end of its development and due to the protection offered by the historic fort location, there can be certainty that the views from the apartment are protected and will not be encroached upon by future development

The 148m2 property offers 2 en-suite bedrooms on the first floor of the T10 block, offering sea views and a lovely perspective of the harbour across Fort Tigné.  A dedicated parking place is included and the apartment comes with use of the stunning Tigné Point pool.

With a light and spacious feel, the apartment design exudes quality and comfort helping you make the most of your holiday experience.

Historical

Fort Tigné was built in 1782 to strengthen defence against sea borne attack for the peninsular.  It's impressive walls and bastions are wonderfully integrated into the development at Tigné Point, with extensive manicured and beautifully landscaped walkways around the fort and the shoreline.

The extensive underground parking garage provides access to the shopping complex on three floors.  The Point offers a  broad range of shops, from fashion, bookstores, supermarket, restaurants cafe's and bars, as well as a Marks & Spencer food store and Debenhams.  There is really no need to leave the peninsular, should you so wish.

Potential for Investment Growth

Property appreciation is clearly something that Fractional Development Express cannot guarantee. As with all investments, prices can go down as well as up.  Government statistics of the development of apartment property prices in Malta over the past ten years show good historic appreciation, with a dip in 2008 due to the credit crunch, followed by a recent return to trend.  Apartment prices closely follow the national property average.

The developers of Tigné Point expect that appreciation in this exclusive development should exceed the general national average for apartments in Malta.

Tax Implications 

While we are unable to offer you detailed tax advice, we are able to let you know that Malta has a favourable tax structure, with no property taxes and low tax rates for foreign residents.   Tax rates as low as 15% are charged on income brought in to Malta by retirees who take up residence.  

There is however a capital gains tax on property transactions.  Investors who sell their share should take this into account.  Fractional Development Express is able to advise investors of the capital gains tax consequences in Malta, but unfortunately cannot offer specific advice pertaining to tax implications within investors home tax jurisdiction.

 

Malta offers a delightful mix of beautiful natural scenery, wonderful architecture reflecting the varied historical influences and international connections of the island, a warm and friendly english speaking people, a Mediterranean lifestyle and a climate that offers 300 days of sunshine a year.

Transportation links are excellent, with a number of low cost airlines flying in to Malta and the island is regularly visited by cruise liners.  Tourism is the major contributor to the Maltese economy. 

While if you are reading this you probably already know all about many of the attractions of Malta, we have listed out some of what we believe makes it such a wonderful place to visit and come back to time and time again:

  • wonderful landscape and countryside, never more than a few miles from the sea

  • fantastic climate, offering 300 days of sunshine throughout the year, with temperatures that rarely fall below 12c in winter - making for a year round destination

  • warm and friendly english-speaking population

  • cultural and historical attractions, with over 7,000 years of colourful history, evidenced in the architecture and wonderful museums

  • easily accessible, with a choice of low cost airlines

  • member of the European Union, Euro as currency

  • safe, as crime levels are particularly low in Malta

  • excellent for watersports, with unparalleled diving and snorkeling in the Mediterranan sea

  • wide choice of high quality restaurants, and delicious locally grown fruit and vegetables (we highly recommend the tomatoes and strawberries!) .
