Can Non-EU Citizens buy property in Austria?

Although it is technically possible, it is extremely rare for properties in Austria to be available for non-EU citizens.

A few properties have a very rare “second home” status and are available for non-EU but they are only found in small villages in the Salzburg province.

Almost all properties are only available to EU citizens, so if you do not have an EU passport, look to buy in France or Switzerland instead.
It is not possible to get around the rules by buying in the name of a company. Non-Eu-citizens may only purchase in the name of an EU Company if over 50% of the shareholders are resident in the EU.
