The values of properties in Bulgaria are believed to be close to bottoming out and are expected to start rising steadily year by year, claim experts. This comes as the average property value in Bulgaria fell by 6.1 per cent in Q3 year-on-year, according to the Knight Frank Global House Price Index.

It might not seem like a huge amount but it has been described by experts as a “substantial figure”. Farmland is now considered to be a good property investment in Bulgaria as the countryside has “an enormous potential that is unfulfilled at this point in terms of its agricultural development”.

Many buildings throughout Bulgaria are in need of crucial repairs or re-structure, and many will have to be demolished to make way for new developments. There are many buildings in poor condition near to the big cities like Sofia.

Bulgaria currently sits in 44th place in the Knight Frank Global House Price Index for the first quarter of this year. This is out of 50 nations.
