Increased investments in residential real estate in Slovenia, grab your opportunity



In light of the existing and expected revival of the real estate market, and considering the still-inexpensive financing options and positive demographic trends in larger Slovenian cities, a lack of residential unit supply can be expected this year. Despite the record number of transactions involving residential real estate in 2017, there are still ample opportunities for new real estate developments. Residential real estate demand is increasing, both for personal use and investment purposes. As a result of the above, undeveloped land plots suitable are highly sough-after for multi-unit residential developments and neighborhoods. In particular, increased demand for projects with an existing and valid construction permit has been noted on the market, as well as for partially finished developments and for land plots with an existing Municipal Detailed Zoning Plan (OPPN). The foregoing reduces the investor's risk involved in real estate development.
