Last call for investing in properties

Last call to invest, but where? On the bank deposit, stock market or in real estate market?

Not from today is know that investing in real estates is the safest form of investing capital but as in agriculture to gather a rich harvest you must sow in the good ground.

With investing in the real estates is similarly. Contrary to appearances, it is not easy task to invest capital in a good way, to earn money and not to lose. Only deeply thought decisions about direction and right place of investment our money will bring in the future decent profit.

Advantages of crisis

Events from last some years shows that the crisis which affected the global real estate markets caused a significant fall in the properties prices in the primary and secondary market. However, according to well known saying: "…Every cloud has a silver lining" sudden drops of the properties prices have also a good site, because it also caused a growing interest in investing the capital in the real estate sector, especially in rising and safe, much cheaper than our, foreign markets.

We observe that inwestor with less affluent wallet who made loan for purchasing a dreaming property in Poland or invest few sources in the stock market or bank deposit looks now at the foreign real estate markets with more attention and invest more boldly his capital. A stimulus of such investment is fact that prices of flats in other countries like Bulgaria starts from few thousand EUR. So it is only teens of thousand PLN.

An experience of recent years shows that polish investors comes very fast in the foreign markets. Regardless of the wallet, everyone, whether wealthy investor with large capital or tiny investor with a capital even several thousand according to the rule: "price makes miracles" looks only at occasion and thus the lowest prices in economically stable and safe place with a potential. For us, Europeans, one of the best directions became Bulgaria.

Seaside sun brings money

Today Bulgaria is the best place to invest, just like few years ago poor countries acceding to the member ranks of the European Union. Today Bulgaria became a investment leader in Europe with newly built and constantly builded apartment complexes, housing estates, one and multi-family houses and all tourist, recreation and relaxation facilities including yacht marinas, golf courses and sandy beaches which are one of the longest and the most beautiful in Europe.

It is worth to mention that in the last time has been noticed the record sale of new properties there. Apartment prices on the Bulgarian Black Sea and in mountain resorts has dropped in the last year but it start to grow on average of ten percent per year and as the biggest investors seems to say:"Place on earth does not come, therefore even the properties prices comes cheaper for a short time, it grows constantly and systematically in fact" and thus we are expecting further increases to 2015 what in turn shows that we have a last call to take advantage of available opportunity.

Bulgarian tourism sector is extremely strong and it became recently one of the fastest growing and most popular travel directions in Europe. Number of tourists visiting Bulgaria was about 4,5 milion in 2005 and 4,7 milion in 2006, about 5 milion in 2007 and 2008, about 6 milion in 2009 and 6,5 milion in 2010 what only confirms that it becomes a pearl of Eastern Europe.

Reasons to invest in Bulgaria is a lot but it is worth to remind a few most important:

  • BULGARIA is a European Union member from 1st January 2007 and enter to the country is getting by ID card presentation.
  • The relative distance from Poland: about 1500 km from Warsaw to the Black Sea Coast.
