The interest in holiday properties is growing with the beginning of the summer season

The ongoing economic recovery and the economic growth since the end of 2010 brought optimism and helped the real estate market to start gradual recovery from the crisis, which is noticed in the first half of 2011. This statement is based on the fact that the volume of the property bargains has increased lately, slowing the pace of lowering the prices and meanwhile interest rates on mortgage loans are found at lower levels.

More and more foreign property investors are turning their backs on some of the major property markets in Europe and head eastern countries like Bulgaria and Romania.

The Rearranging and stirring up the market in 2012 in Bulgaria led to new processes and trends.Some of them started at the beginning of tourist season, with increasing the buyers` interest in the Bulgarian holiday properties to the sea and mainly in the region of the Southern Black Sea coast. Experts reported growth of 20% of bargains in the resort "Sunny Beach" with a decrease in prices with about 6 per cent.The reasons for this new trend, according to managers of the real estate market, is that

Developers of vacation properties dropped down the prices at the right time- the beginning of the summer season.This decreasing in the prices led to strong demand from Russian clients mainly in the price range of 20,000 to 50,000 euros for finished apartments near the beach.In this situation Bulgarians are tempted to buy ready and profitable furnished apartment on the beach for about 25,000 to 35,000 euros, with the prospect of using it for years, rather than rent accommodation.However, for this money residential property in Sofia and large cities cannot be bought.

Another trend is that the building on the Bulgarian Black Sea coast loses its intensity and the perspective is that it will stop.Seen in the long run, this means that the prices of marine apartments will grow.This will lead to good profit for those who buy now, as an investment.That`s why more Bulgarians invest their saved money in the sea properties.
