Need an Apartment? Dubrovnik Remains Most Expensive

Lauren Simmonds

We may as well admit it, it isn’t surprising.

As DuList reports on the 8th of September, 2017, the average asking price for apartments increased by 0.7% on a monthly level, while they were 5% more on the year-on-year, according to CroZilla‘s data portal.

The biggest monthly increase in apartment prices was recorded in Senj in August, where each square meter was priced at 1264 euros, which is 3.6% more than it was in July.

On average, the price of Pula’s apartments rose by 2.7% on a monthly level, and 9.1% year-on-year, so the price per square meter increased to 1421 euros.

Slavonski Brod’s average apartment price rose by 2.2% and in August, the price was 883 euros per square meter. Bjelovar’s average price rose by just 0.1%, amounting to 837 euros per square meter.

An increase of 0.8% was recorded in Zagreb, with a general price of 1698 euros per square meter. Sibenik was the same increase with each square meter costing 1596 euros.

Opatija and Rijeka recorded a monthly increase of 0.6%, so the average Rijeka apartment was 1396 euros per square meter, with those in Opatija as much as 2952 euros!

The average advertised price of apartments in Zadar rose by 0.5% in August, reaching 1889 euros per square meter.

Dubrovnik, rather unsurprisingly, continues to hold first place very securely on the house pricing scale, with a huge 3796 euros per square meter in the Pearl of the Adriatic.

Split records the highest monthly drop and it is the only city in the Adriatic where prices actually fell in value during the month of August. The average advertised price dropped by 2.2%, so the average price per square meter was 2270 euros.

The Northern town of Varaždin’s apartments also dropped by 0.5%, averaging 1093 euros per square meter, and according to CroZilla, the average asking price for apartments in Osijek was 951 euros during August, which is 0.3% less than was recorded in the same area just one month earlier.

Apartments in the Croatian capital continue to be the most sought after and CroZilla‘s advertising data showed that during August, the largest demand for housing was in Zagreb, Zadar, Pula, Split and Osijek, with potential foreign buyers showing the greatest interest in apartments in Zagreb, as well as in coastal cities such as Pula, Split, Makarska and Zadar.
