The real estate market has changed significantly since the advent of the coronavirus in Bulgaria. Unique Estates data show an increase in inquiries from customers seeking a higher standard of living due to the new living conditions. Preferred locations are expanded and property requirements are changed. There is a tendency for people to indulge to nature not only for rest, but also to live and work there.
The current situation has given push to real estate transactions outside Sofia. In era of economic turmoil and uncertain times, property remains the safest investment and most people invest their savings in residential property. In times of the pandemic, contact with nature, solitude and fresh air are becoming increasingly important factors in choosing real estate.
H2: Top reasons to move to the outskirts
Interest in properties outside Sofia has grown significantly since the appearance of Covid-19. Areas such as Pancharevo, Bankya, Lozen, Gurmazovo, Bistritsa, German, Zheleznitsa, Vladaya and many others are very relevant now. Not only houses with a yard are in demand, but also lovely apartments in gated compounds, which provide 24/7h security and guaranteed rest for the residents. The inhabitants of such areas seek closeness to the communications of the big city, but at the same time peace and solitude. There are also those who feel the need to escape from the dynamics of the capital and choose to buy a luxury property in mountainous areas or on the Bulgarian Black Sea coast. Among the most popular are properties in Plovdiv, Varna, Burgas, Sozopol, as well as captivating places in our southern neighbor Greece.
When choosing a home, you take into account a number of factors that will provide you with a comfortable lifestyle. If you are young and lead a more dynamic lifestyle, you will look for sports centers, 24-hour shops, parking spaces in the neighborhood. If you have a family, you will undoubtedly look for areas that are safe and close to schools, kindergartens and public transport stops. Whichever category you belong to, one thing is for sure - you need space! If you are a Z generation, you probably need space for clothes, shoes, ski equipment and other accessories. If you are from the millennial generation, which thinks about buying a home in the very long term, we assume that you will need space for a stroller, bicycles, and any other accessories for raising children. Space is extremely valuable when you want to feel free and in harmony with yourself - both at home and outside.
Buying a home is one of the most important steps in a person's life. Then you choose where to spend most of your time and must be confident that he is making the right decision. Consumer attitudes in the housing market during Covid-19 have changed. In the beginning, buyers were more reserved and found it difficult to trust brokers who advised them to invest. Then they became convinced that property prices will not fall and the best time to invest in a property that will remain for generations to come is now! The crisis has changed the perceptions of modern man as a whole. Now we are more cautious, we pay attention to the little things, we enjoy life in its most unadulterated form. We have begun to value peace and security as supreme virtues, and everyone wants to protect and secure their family as best they can. "My home is my fortress," say the ancient Romans. And we know that the home is where we feel safe and comfortable - both in times of crisis and challenging times, and in happy and peaceful days as well.
Life in Sofia is in full swing - not only on weekdays, but also on holidays. The dynamics of the capital can not be compared with everyday life in other Bulgarian cities, and sometimes we want to slow down and indulge in a well-deserved vacation in the fresh air. During the epidemiological situation, many of the clients of Unique Estates, who lived and worked abroad, decided to return to Bulgaria and continue their development here. There are also foreigners who decide to move permanently to a more favorable and peaceful country, with more greenary and cultural heritage. Most of the buyers of luxury properties are looking at the portfolio of Unique Estates with aristocratic residences and mansions located outside Sofia. There the air is noticeably cleaner and fresher and you feel more energized.
Whether you live in a house or an apartment, with or without neighbors, in a classic or modern building, the beautiful views are definitely a bonus! The properties in the center of Sofia, unfortunately, are surrounded by apartment blocks, old houses, administrative buildings and business centers. On the other hand, the properties outside the capital are located on larger areas and offer breathtaking views of mountains, rivers and lakes, where you can enjoy the richness of nature. It is incomparable to feel a cup of hot coffee on your balcony in the morning, watching the rising sun. Or spend the long fresh summer nights in the barbecue yard, in the company of your friends, while the children play around you. With the advent of the coronavirus, greenery has become increasingly valuable, and the freedom and tranquility that nature brings - very important factors in choosing a new home.
Today's buyer is looking for space and light. Properties with yards, with beautiful views of the city and the mountains are preferred. Activity is currently observed in families with two or more children who hold on to functionality and convenience. Such spacious properties in the center or southern regions of the capital are far more expensive than those on the outskirts of Sofia or cities such as Plovdiv, Varna, Burgas. If you have set aside a budget for a two-bedroom apartment in the capital, then in other cities for the same amount you could buy a three-bedroom. Homes with various technologies and innovations are becoming more and more desirable, which define it as the so-called "smart home".
The challenge we all went through highlighted quality products and services - not only in the construction and real estate sectors, but also in the business industry as a whole. We rediscovered new personal and professional values, defined our priorities and set rational goals. After Covid-19, properties outside Sofia have become increasingly popular due to the presence of fresh air in the open space and greenery, more affordable prices and the security and tranquility they bring.
Secure the future with a property that fully meets your requirements and your lifestyle. Consult with friends, ask for recommendations and seek the professional opinion of experts. They will comply with your criteria and established budget and will offer you properties and areas that meet your expectations for a safe and peaceful life outside the dynamics of the capital. Examine the market carefully and invest your savings wisely. You will be pleasantly surprised when you find real treasures that are located outside the big city.
