Pros and Cons of Buying Property in Bulgaria

137603747075190

The Pros

  • Property is cheaper than in many other parts of Europe, with houses in some rural locations as low as 7000 Euros.
  • Good potential for capital growth, with expected accession to the European Union in 2007.
  • Diverse range of properties in cities, mountain ski resorts, coastal areas and countryside.
  • Between 200 and 2004, land prices alone tripled in some areas
  • Recognised as an emerging property market, with potentially high rewards for the bold and the brave!
  • Improving infrastructure with funds form the EU.
  • Beautiful countryside and coastal areas – offering great locations for properties in unspoiled landscapes.
  • Increased exposure of the Bulgarian real estate market in the British media (e.g. ‘ A Place in the Sun’, ‘I Want That House’).
  • Flying time is only two and a half to three hours from the UK – making it perfect for weekend city breaks.

The Cons

  • You can not own a property with land as a foreign individual; you have to set up a Bulgarian company.
  • Getting to Bulgaria is still more expensive than some other parts of Europe .
  • You may have to make a quick decision to avoid losing the property, with the increased interest in the region.
  • Financing options may be more limited than if you were to buy in Spain or France for example.
  • Alleged concerns over a two-tier pricing structure.
  • Roads, pavements and other areas of infrastructure are not currently up to Western standards in some areas.
  • Water mains are not available in all areas – you need to check that it is available before you buy or build a well.
  • The summer months are not as long as they are in some other European destinations such as Spain – lasting from May until September.
  • The buying process can seem daunting at first.

17 Haunting Images Of China’s Ghost Cities

The Chinese government is pushing forward with a massive plan to move 250 million rural townspeople to urban areas over the course of the next 12 to 15 years. In order to meet this goal, it has bulldozed large swaths of farmland and evicted millions of villagers from their homes.

But even as skyscrapers, shopping malls, and office complexes spring up overnight, most of China’s brand new metropolises remain largely vacant. Colorful “For Rent” banners adorn the exteriors of apartment buildings, freshly paved boulevards go days without seeing a single vehicle, and shopkeepers doze on their counters as they wait for customers to arrive.

With over 64 million uninhabited apartments, China’s ghost cities are sad, lonely places to live.

THE PAST: Bulgarian seaside, summer 1968!

alfa-city

Text: ViewSofia
Photography: Press

While scouring the blogosphere, we came across something so refreshing and wonderful that I could not share it with you! Something that made us nostalgic for a time when we did not even lived …

We found pictures of the Bulgarian Black Sea coast of the past, together in an album named BULGARIAN BLACK SEA COAST, the issue is from Sofia Press and the year is 1968.

The album is entirely in English. Author of the album is Strashimir Rashev layout Strashimir Rashev as well and Konstantin Halatchev. The text is from Boyan Bolgar. Editor – Dimitar Mihaylov, translation (English) Margarita Alexieva, editor of English Nevena Jelqzkova.

According to the blogger hemingway, who is the inventor of this treasure, the album does not have a price printed on the cover, which could means, that it was not for sell, but an advertising material about foreigners. It is owned by a former pilot BGA “Balkan”, so I assume that may have been distributed for promotional purposes on board.

We wish you a really lovely walk through the Bulgarian Black Sea coast in 1968.
