09.08.2013 BULGARIAN PROPERTIES Price Indices (BPI) July 2013

Polina Stoykova MRICS, Chief Operations Manager and Head of Research

The listing prices of apartments in the capital of Sofia remained almost unchanged in July, both on a monthly and on an annual basis. The trend of a monthly price growth that has continued since April is now slowing down, while the annual price drops are also fading away. In Varna, where the listing prices have went through a considerable downward correction in 2012, the price drops continue but they are within 1-2%. The listing prices in Varna are now at their 2006 levels. This has already started to influence the market, and as a result we can see a higher interest and more property sales in Varna this year. If this trend continues, there is a strong possibility that the Varna market starts to recover.

On the other hand, the listing prices in Bansko reached a deeper bottom in July and at present they are at their lowest level ever. In Sunny Beach the positive trends remain during the strong summer season which turns out to be very successful for property sales and for the tourism in Bulgaria as a whole.
