Affordable properties in Bulgaria
The bargains in Spain and France may be harder to find, but you can still invest in property abroad if you look that little further afield. Properties for sale in Bulgaria still offer that elusive thing – European holiday homes with affordable prices.
Bulgaria’s beach and ski resorts already make it a popular and appealing holiday destination in Europe, and statistics show tourism has doubled in recent years. As the country prepares to enter the EU in January 2007, it looks like this trend is set to continue. Cost of Living
It isn’t just the properties for sale in Bulgaria that feature low prices. A Thomas Cook Cost of Living index showed Bulgaria was the cheapest country in Europe. A pint of beer is just 30p, a litre of petrol 54p, a three-course mean £7, bottle of wine £1,00 cup of coffee 30p and a packet of cigarettes £0.60. Money
The average monthly salary in Bulgaria’s capital city Sofia is in the 200-300 Euro range, so many British visitors will find it incredibly good value for money. Despite the odd tourist trap, you can enjoy a good standard of living, although naturally prices can vary according to how popular the destination is for tourists.
Taxis are very cheap but again you should be wary in high profile tourist destinations. If you have bought properties in Bulgaria for sale in order to live in the country, you can purchase a decent car for fewer than 3000 euros and insurance is cheap. Ski tourism
There are fantastic properties for sale in Bulgaria located in its increasingly popular ski resorts. Ski property is a strong investment, offering the possibility of high rental returns from the both the summer season and winter ski season.
The resorts of Bansko, Pamporovo and Borovets have world class facilities with the advantage of low cost living and staffing costs. Prices are lower in Pamporovo and Borovets than in Bansko, and present a good investment opportunity. Sofia
One way to capitalise on the growing reputation of Bulgaria as a popular skiing destination and still enjoy the diversity of city life is to invest in Sofia. Sofia offers excellent ski facilities with Mount Vitosha rising from the North, very close to the city.
The diversity of properties for sale in Bulgaria is vast, and no matter how much of shoestring budget you are on you can still make that dream home abroad a reality.
Bulgaria is one of the best investments in European property, with land and properties for sale at incredibly cheap prices compared to the UK, there couldn’t be a better time to buy.
