01.11.2018 Winter season 2018-2019: where to buy ski property in Bulgaria?
Considering the deals growth in all three resorts, today we will present some of our TOP offers there, as well as the expert market opinion of BULGARIAN PROPERTIES.
Increased activity, including during the summer months, increasing sales volumes, stabilized prices and predominant Bulgarian buyers - these are the main trends of the property markets in the ski resorts for the second consecutive year.
Polina Stoykova MRICS, Managing Director & Head of Research of BULGARIAN PROPERTIES, comments: 'The main reasons for the increasing attractiveness of the properties in the mountain resorts are, on one hand, the tempting low prices, and on the other - the improved infrastructure, the easy and fast access from the big cities, the accumulated experience in the management and maintenance of the residential complexes and, above all, the transformation of the ski resorts into all-year-round resorts.
This allows for a more complete use of the property, prolongs the season and leads to the possibility of generating profitability, albeit small, which is an additional incentive to buy.'
