Sofia property market continues to strengthen with listing prices following an upward trend for 5 months in a row. A growing demand has been supporting this process and we expect to see increased dynamics in the coming months.

The same is also valid for the other big cities in Bulgaria. The market in Varna has stabilized and we now see positive monthly and annual price changes. Positive price trends are also present in Burgas and Plovdiv. Sunny Beach is seeing an increase of activities and demand as we go closer to the start of the summer season.
