Who are the most common buyers of real estate in Istria?
Istria real estate buyers buy real estate for vacations, but also more often for living throughout the year. But certainly, the largest percentage of foreign buyers are owners of " second home " real estate in Istria with the purpose of tourist rental, considering that real estate in Istria achieves very high rental prices and, accordingly, a relatively quick return on investment. The most popular buyers of real estate in Istria have traditionally been Germans, Austrians, Slovenians, and Italians, both because of the proximity and accessibility, as well as the excellent transport infrastructure, which enables easily repeated visits and stays, especially in spring and summer. The increased number of air connections and better connections with Europe and beyond are also one of the more important reasons for the trend in demand for real estate in Istria, as they arouse the interest of an increasing number of buyers from more distant countries. Among the great lovers of Istria are also Italians, who especially value the Istrian region because of its many similarities with Italy, such as fantastic wine and food, beautiful nature, and Istrian traditions similar to that of Venetian culture. There are numerous reasons why more domestic and foreign guests decide to buy real estate in Istria, as well as in the rest of Croatia, and the most important are certainly:
1. FEELING OF SECURITY
Nowadays, one of the most important things when buying real estate in the Istrian area is the sense of security that this destination provides. Croatia is a member of the European Union, among the favorite Mediterranean countries in Europe, and at the same time has a fairly low crime rate, unlike many other Mediterranean countries. The culture of sleeping with the door unlocked is still visible, especially on many Croatian islands, but also in smaller towns.
2. EXCELLENT TRANSPORT CONNECTION
It is precisely the excellent transport connections with EU countries that resulted in the fact that as many as a quarter of real estate buyers in Croatia are foreigners, and in destinations with access to the sea, the share of foreign owners is even higher than 70%. High-quality roads and highways, the development of Croatian airports, and the constant introduction of new airline routes make Istria an ideal destination for a short or long vacation or the purchase of a vacation property, as it is visited by both those who come by car and those who come by plane.
3. PURCHASE OF ISTRIA REAL ESTATE IS A SURE RETURN ON INVESTMENT
An unstable market, various changes in the way of life as well as a change in the perception of life's values, especially during and after the pandemic, pushed many Croatian and foreign citizens to invest their saved money and achieve additional value while saving in banks is becoming an increasingly rare option for citizens. Investing in real estate, i.e. "second home" real estate is a safe and profitable choice, regardless of whether the buyer intends to use it for his own vacation and pleasure or to convert it into a vacation home and pay off the invested funds through tourist rental. What is quite certain is that real estate prices in Istria, as well as throughout Croatia, will certainly continue to rise.
