Our main focus is in the mountain resort of Borovets which is close to the capital Sofia and one of the best locations for property investment in Bulgaria. Properties in the Borovets area offer the ideal mix of 4 season usage with skiing in the winter and a pleasant summer climate with temperatures around 25°C. The local area offers a range of activities including mountain biking, fishing, walking & hiking, wake boarding & water skiing, mineral baths and spas, ancient monasteries and fortresses and of course in the winter the area offers the full range of winter sports including skiing and snowboarding.
The Bulgaria real estate market has seen significant changes over the last 10 years. After joining the EU in 2007 buying Bulgaria
properties became very popular as an overseas property investment. This drove up prices and led to over development in certain areas, most notably
along the Black Sea coastline and in the Bansko ski resort. When the global financial crisis hit in 2009 the prices of property in Bulgaria dropped
due to the lack of credit and the oversupply of poor quality properties in these locations.
Now in 2015 Bulgaria real estate prices have started to increase and both local and international investors are again buying Bulgarian properties. We are
happy to say that the market has really started to move in the last 12 months. Buyers are
being enticed by prices that in some cases are up to 50% below peak values and in a lot of cases properties in Bulgaria can now
by purchased very close to the actual cost of construction. This makes them a great medium to long term investment as the cost
of construction is continuously rising due to wage and commodity inflation. Over the last 10 years there has never been a
better time to invest in Bulgaria real estate.

The apartments are now for sale at significantly reduced prices starting from just €500 per m2. At these prices they

The Bulgaria real estate market varies from old houses in rural villages, to beach properties, modern city apartments and luxury
ski apartments and chalets in the mountain resorts. However not all Bulgaria properties can be considered as good investments at
this stage in the Bulgaria real estate cycle.
Whether you are buying property in Bulgaria as an investment strategy or as a personal holiday home it is important that you
research the market and find the right Bulgarian real estate
to suit your needs. Having researched the Bulgarian properties market in detail we have picked Borovets ski resort as the area best suited to future
growth. The key reasons why you should consider buying Borovets property right now are;
Prices in the Borovets area are at the lowest level in the last 10 years
Many properties are for sale at below or near the cost of construction
Good value property is a very safe hedge against inflation. The cost of construction is continuously rising due to increased
wages and commodity prices. This means property prices will continue to rise in the future
At present the global financial system is in crisis. Why leave your money in a bank which might go bust tomorrow leaving
you with nothing. When you invest in property in Bulgaria you have a tangible asset which you own and control. In the current
financial environment the old saying "as safe as houses" has never been more true
Bulgaria is on track to join the Schengen free travel zone in 2016. This will bring with it increased investment as
businesses and individuals relocate to Bulgaria to gain access to the EU markets. This in turn will drive up the price of the Bulgarian properties market.
Bulgaria has one of the lowest debt to GDP ratios in the EU and is currently receiving significant inwards investment from Europe.
On some of our Bulgarian apartments we offer financing up to 50%.
We recommend Borovets property as the best medium term investment in Bulgaria properties. Borovets is the oldest ski resort in Bulgaria and
the closest to Sofia. Sofia is the main transport hub and centre of wealth in Bulgaria. By buying real estate close to the
capital you are securing the future growth and rental of your Bulgarian property.
95% of Borovets is covered in forests and national park. This means there is very limited building land in Borovets and
the area cannot become overdeveloped. Borovets has not and can not suffer from the same overdevelopment that has happened in
places like the Black Sea coastline or Bansko ski resort. This is very important for the future growth of your Bulgaria
properties both in terms of resale and rental.
