The demand for renting flats in this time of the year is on the rise, as well as apartments sales.

There’s an increase in the demand for both rental and purchase of apartments in Zagreb, mostly due to certain benefits, reports Zagrebancija.

For renting apartments, the Zagreb market is on average the most desirable in Croatia. However, with the start of the tourist season, the demand and interest for real estate at the seaside is also increasing.

“We compared the prices of apartments in Zagreb and at the seaside, in cities such as Split, Zadar, Opatija and Rijeka. Our research has shown that apartments of 20 to 80 square meters have the highest rental price in Zagreb, whereas larger flats are a bit more pricey in Opatija and Split than in Zagreb. Monthly rental rates for flats of 20 to 100 square meters in these cities range from some 100 to even 3,000 euros. It all depends on a variety of criteria, such as location, design and so on – said Ivana Beljan, a public relations expert at the Crozilla real estate portal.

It is no secret that our coast is a desirable destination for foreigners who, in most cases, are interested in long-term rentals.

“Many foreigners contact us, such as Austrians, Germans, and Swiss, most of which are pensioners who want to live a part of the year in the Adriatic and the other part in their home country.They are most interested in the northern part of the Adriatic – Istria, Kvarner and area up to Crikvenica,” adds Beljan.

Renting a house is not as much sought-after as renting apartments, partly because of larger square meters and higher prices.

“In the Adriatic, houses are rented from around 180 euros per month to over 10,000 euros. The cheapest houses for rent are those located far from the coast and have no view of the sea. In most of the cases, these houses are older, poorly equipped and located in unwanted areas. The highest prices of rentals are for luxury properties such as houses with a pool, situated in desirable locations and with a sea view,” concludes Beljan.

The demand for renting flats in this time of years is on the rise, as well as apartments sales. All in all, it seems that the real estate market in Croatia operates pretty well.
