All you have to do is meet the minimum investment value.  The investors allowed to sell that property before the five-year mark to some other foreign citizen.  But the investor would have to give up his/her permit in order to do that.

Moreover, if there is joint ownership of property worth more or equal to 250,000 Euros. Then residency permit is only given if the joint owners are spouses.

In other joint ownership cases, the residency permit is only given if both of the owners have invest an amount of 250,000 Euros each in a particular property.

In case the owner has bought the property from a legal body, the applicant should have 100 percent shares of the company.

The residency visa will only be granted on single or multiple properties with a combined value beyond 250,000 Euros.
