Property in Croatia: How to Attract Buyers with the Right Price
Properties along the Croatian coast attract new foreign buyers every year and the country’s entry in the EU has made it easier for owners looking to sell their house, apartment or villa to offer their property for sale to foreign nationals. However, while coastal properties will always have an easy appeal to buyers, owning an attractive home does not guarantee that it will sell. To improve the odds, owners must set a realistic listing price, one that is favourable both to them and to buyers.
Owners of holiday homes in Croatia have a lot going for them from the start. For those looking to buy property on the Adriatic coast, Croatia is an excellent alternative to some of the better known Mediterranean destinations. With one of the cleanest and prettiest coastlines in the region, the country offers countless holiday destinations, ranging from urban to undiscovered. This makes coastal properties an interesting investment to many foreign nationals looking to get rental returns. However, lower property prices are a big part of the appeal and, for this reason, real estate owners looking to sell their property must offer competitive prices.
Property prices in Croatia
The key factors that determine the price of a property are the type, location and characteristics of the property, as well as market demand. Not all coastal locations are equal and, while residential property sales in popular tourist regions like Dubrovnik and Istria are on the rise, overall home sales in Croatia are not.
For potential buyers, the key factor in determining which property to buy is the listing price. A property that is up for sale gets the most attention in the first several weeks and if the initial asking price is too high, it may discourage buyers. With a realistic listing price, more potential buyers will be attracted to a property when interest is at its highest.
This, however, does not mean that the asking price should be too low. The right price should reflect the true value of the property and cover all the expenses the owners incur while also taking into account the local real estate market and financial situation of potential buyers.
