Apartment Rental Market in Sofia and Varna in 2010


According to data of BULGARIAN PROPERTIES and its subsidiary LUXIMOTI the rental market of apartments decreased in terms of the number of concluded deals by about 23% compared to 2009. The rentals make up 30% of the total number of deals while in 2009 they made up almost 50% of all the deals. On the one hand, the decreased share of rental deals is due to the increased number of sales in 2010 and to a smaller activity on the part of lessors, on the other.


The luxury rental segment in Sofia in 2010 was marked by decreased interest, which also led to a drop in the number of concluded rental deals by 18% compared to 2009. This also led to an average decrease of 20% in rental prices from 790 Euro per calendar month for an apartment in 2009 to 620 Euro in 2010.

The most expensive apartments rented out in 2010 cost about 1,600 Euro per calendar month and the most expensive houses up to 2,500 Euro per month. In general, the luxury rental market fluctuated quite a lot during the year, the strongest months being the first and last months of 2010. In comparison to 2009, when there were almost no rental deals under 500 Euro per month, in 2010 the most common deals were for about 400 Euro per month for high-quality furnished apartments.

In the lower price segment the market was considerably more active the average rental price in 2010 being about 300 Euro per month compared to the average price of 400 Euro at the end of 2009. Therefore, there is a decrease of 20-25% here as well.
