Types of Commercial Real Estate in Malta
One of the first questions that should be asked when considering commercial real estate in Malta is about the type of business that is going to operate from the premises. Does the business depend on foot traffic, is it going to be a destination in its own right, or does it generate profits online or B2B?
Whatever the type of property and business occupying it, in choosing the right location one must take into consideration things such as parking for customers or employees, nearby amenities, and the necessity for travel to other places.
Employees at a law firm, for example, would expect to be travelling to the Maltese law courts rather regularly, a fact that should be taken into consideration when choosing an office location. Similarly, customer-based companies may want to provide easy, free parking for their clients, to make their lives easier.
Specifics and Details
When a location has been selected, several factors within the property will need to be considered and addressed. Apart from the basic questions (such as: Is there enough room for employees to work and for the firm to grow?) you should also bear in mind requirements that are specific to the business that will occupy the premises. Does the property require a special license? Is super-fast broadband required? Does the property need to have specific amenities, such as a certain number of plug sockets, or reinforced windows?
Variety of Options in Malta
Thanks to the Maltese government’s pro-business attitude and the introduction of numerous tax advantages, Malta has become a major business hub over the last decade or so. To accommodate the growing number of international businesses relocating to Malta, the quality of commercial space available has improved substantially.
