Warning: end() has been disabled for security reasons in /home/conceptb/public_html/bulgarianpropertynews/wp-includes/plugin.php on line 308

During the latter half of 2011, the sales manager from Bulgaria’s leading real estate agent Bulgarian Properties, Polina Stoykova commented on the Bulgarian property market trends in an interview. According to her, the real estate market in Bulgaria is still the market of the buyers. She had justified this with the help of some facts.

She revealed that the property market in the state began to stabilize in the latter half of 2010 after which there was no great change in the prices of the Bulgarian property for sale. Due to the absence of any major fluctuations in demand as well as in prices, people can conclude that the current time period is of stabilization in terms of deals and prices as well.

The official surveys and statistics of early 2011 also had shown a fall of 2% in the prices of property in Bulgaria although it is a hidden decrease. Furthermore, Bulgarian Properties collected some details that showed a fall in the prices of a few holiday homes, especially the ones in the area of winter resorts. They, therefore, concluded that on a whole, the property rates are neither rising nor falling. She also said that the company now expects the buyers to play live to buy Bulgaria property by choosing one of the best deals.

Happily, this activeness among the buyers has been seen in the apartment market of the big Bulgarian cities. However, it is the Sofia market that has now become the most dynamic one because of the highest number of demands. It is true that the buyers tend to seek Bulgaria property for sale to live, and not for investment. Even the foreign buyers are approaching for visiting properties in the country’s seaside resorts.

 

Furthermore, the property market in the regions of northeastern Bulgaria also shows that buyers are more than the deals. Varna is the only exception here because of it being the area of coastal resorts that bring in more deals and active buyers. Similarly, in the holiday home sector, more and more prospects are searching for cheap finished apartments. Fortunately, there are relevant offers and deals in the market. They concluded that what is actually interesting is the set of deals for coastal holiday homes, which conclude throughout the year and not just in the summer season.

The lady also accepted that the most active months for buying property in the country are at the year’s beginning, especially the time from March – May; as well as at the year’s end. According to the seasons, winter attracts most foreign buyers who prefer buying ski resorts, while summer attract buyers who are looking for seaside resorts. But this information is relative and nothing can be assured about its consistency, said Miss Polina.

According to her, after the commencement of the crisis, only the genuine real estate companies survive. These are the ones who invest in enhancing the quality of services. For example, Bulgarian Properties always has tried to give tips, hints, advices, forecasts, and market trends constantly.

Warning: end() has been disabled for security reasons in /home/conceptb/public_html/bulgarianpropertynews/wp-includes/plugin.php on line 308

According to the latest reports, the value of the Bulgarian properties has dropped by approximately 50% after rising in 2008. This also includes the most demanded Bulgarian property types such as ski resorts and beach resorts.

According to the COM, the ski resort of Borovets has witnessed a hike in the demand from the investors even after the fall of prices by 18% on an average in 2011. Furthermore, one more place on the radar in the Sunny Beach that is nestled on the Black Sea shore. This is another place that is attracting the hunters for investing in property in Bulgaria. These are actually Russian buyers who are contributing a lot to sustain holiday home market

Even the price of a country home, another Bulgarian property for sale, has fallen to levels that were last observed in 2006. Bulgarian Properties that is the most prominent estate agency have revealed that since 2012, the rural properties are sold for only €15,500 on an average, which is considerably lower than €18,900, the price for the same period in 2011. The estate agency added that this lowered price for rural Bulgaria property for sale was identical to the mean price that prevailed in the 2011’s last quarter. Nowadays, one can easily buy Bulgaria property in rural areas just for a price that ranges from €10,000 to €20,000. However, it cannot be denied that a significant demand is also there for costlier houses, especially the ones that are near to a resort or a town.

The COM explained that the rural houses of the modern times are of higher quality. A majority of these properties has been refurbished to meet the high standards so that people can live in with maximum comfort. However, they are now offered at the prices of 2006, which make them good value for money. Bulgarian Properties said that the rural houses in and around the coastal regions, including Varna, Bourgas, and Dobrich; in the central Bulgaria villages; and near the cities of Veliko Tarnovo, Plovdiv, and Stara Zagora are pulling more buyers.

The latest trend is that despite ongoing falls in real estate values, a few areas are attracting the overseas property buyers. On this, the company agent explained that this is perhaps the outcome of the improved property rights in the nation. Moreover, the nation is now looked upon as a safer destination for buying houses. This is because more protection is now being provided to the property buyers in the nation.

According to the 2012 report from the Market Economy’s Index Property Rights, in the list of protection level of physical property offered in over 120 nations of the world, Bulgaria grabs the 62nd rank for obtaining 5.4/10. This is actually an improvement because the same score was only 4.9 in the year 2007. So, Bulgarian Properties have accepted that the properties in the country are safer and more affordable than before.

The Bulgarian real estate industry has made major leaps in terms of investments and provision of infrastructure to make dealings in real estate not only more transparent, but also efficient and effective. This is one of the reasons for the continued increase in the amount of foreign investments flowing into the country. One of the things that have spurred the growth in the real estate industry is the availability of most of the companies and agencies dealing in Bulgarian properties for sale online. This makes it very easy for investors, both local and international, to easily get information on the available pieces of real estate and the various prices with which they can be able to get to own properties for sale in Bulgaria.

However, this does not mean that the fact that one uses the online services that are available to an investor or to a seller that he or she is guaranteed to get better deals as opposed to the ones who do not. Using online services can be disastrous for an investor if one does not go about the process of looking for Bulgarian properties for sale, properly. He or she might easily fall to the many fraudsters in the internet or may end up overpaying for any property for sale in Bulgaria.

One of the things that one has to do is to ensure that the site he chooses as a base for his online investment activities has a good reputation. This is essential especially considering the fact that there are many fake sites on the web that purport to carry out Bulgarian property sales but which actually are not. These sites are usually designed to con many unsuspecting investors and thus one should be wary when going online. It is always important to remember that the fact that a site exists on the internet does not mean that it is safe. One should also look at the paying system available and security guarantees that the particular site offers so as to ensure that all his or her financial and private date is safe. Read more…

Steps to Buy a Bulgaria Property

The Eastern and Southern Europe has always been an interesting location for foreign investors due to the continuously growing economy. It is obvious these countries are still far from the Western Europe, but they are in a state of continuous growth. At the same time, the financial crisis has not touched them as bad as it touched “higher” countries. Bulgaria is one of these places. It is located in a great area, with a proper climate that is warm, but also with snowy winters. It is at the junction between Europe and Asia, and borders the Black Sea. Its economy is also stable and the restrictions for foreign investors are not that severe, especially when it comes to Bulgarian properties. Once you decide you want to invest in the Bulgarian real estate system, you need an assistant to guide you throughout the laws and regulations of the country. When the decision is made, all you need is to find the right place and deal with the buying process for property transfer.

First of all, you must pick the Bulgaria property you want and “reserve” it. You can do it with a small deposit that ranges from one buyer to another. It is about 5% to 20% of the total value. The deposit must be paid and then the Bulgarian property is taken off sale and removed from the ads. It is then associated to the customer. This down payment is made within the first month and comes with a contract that describes all the conditions and terms and doesn’t really require a notarial legalization. A notary is mandatory in Bulgaria to conclude the final property transfer, but at the preliminary contract and deposit stage this is not necessary. The preliminary contract covers the detailed description of the property, the price, the payment terms and the final day for the property transfer to take place. Although you don’t need a notary now, you will need one when the final contract is signed. It requires the presence of both the seller and the buyer.

Once the contract is sent to a judge for approval and inclusion in the state registries, you can congratulate yourself for being the new owner of a Bulgaria property. The new owner should register for the local institute of statistics within a week. You will get an account number to deal with any upcoming transaction regarding your new Bulgarian property. Besides, you got two months to register for a local tax office too. Read more…

Buying Bulgarian Properties – things to consider


Warning: end() has been disabled for security reasons in /home/conceptb/public_html/bulgarianpropertynews/wp-includes/plugin.php on line 308

These days, Bulgaria is extremely attractive for the foreigners who look for a place to live or a vacation house far from their countries. The climate is temperate and extremely comfortable, while the country is rich in history and culture, therefore it provides a lot of touristic attractions. As well as this, it has a stable economy, which is excellent compared to other European countries. All these aspects attract more and more foreign tourists. While taking this aspect in consideration, the laws allow the foreign acquisition of real estate Bulgarian properties, but only under particular regulations.

A foreigner – physical or judicial individual – may acquire a Bulgaria property without any major restrictions. When it comes to an apartment, the new owner also gets the property rights over a part of the common areas in the building, such as the stairs or halls. The legislation doesn’t forbid the registration of a company either, in case the new owner is interested in starting a business. The apartment itself can be used as an office without too much hassle or bureaucratic work.

The foreign buyers can acquire various forms of Bulgarian properties, including Bulgarian houses or commercial property units. Besides, it doesn’t matter what the buyer’s status is. However, there is one little aspect a potential buyer should consider before investing in a Bulgaria property – the land the building is located on and the surrounding area cannot be sold to a foreign physical individual, but only to a judicial one. Therefore, the foreign citizens must create a company to buy the property and make the transactions through it. Read more…

The small increase in Bulgaria’s real estate market has been accompanied by an improvement in mortgage financing according to several banks active in the Bulgarian property loan sector.
