Bulgaria: a hidden gem for real estate investing

If you are looking for a suitable place to invest in real estate in Europe, Bulgaria should be on the top of your priority list. As one of the cheapest destinations in Europe, Bulgaria offers excellent investment opportunities and an attractive location for recreation. We have recently visited several key locations in Bulgaria with our investors and we want to share our experiences and recommendations.

1. Obzor 

Obzor is a beautiful seaside town known for long beaches and calm atmosphere. From an investment point of view, Obzor is ideal for those who are looking for a combination of quiet surroundings and tourist potential. Property prices are still very affordable here and the demand for rentals during the summer season is high. Obzor is a great destination for families and couples looking for a peaceful holiday with beautiful beaches and good access to local attractions.

2. Sveti Vlas

Sveti Vlas is known for its beautiful marina and high concentration of foreign tourists, especially from Great Britain and Germany. This city offers the best value for money, when the prices of really nice real estate start around 2,000,000 CZK (80,000 EUR) and can reach a profit of up to 12% per year. Thanks to modern amenities and proximity to Sunny Beach, Sveti Vlas is a very attractive destination for investors looking for quick returns and high rental demand. Sveti Vlas is one of the more expensive locations in Bulgaria. However, you can rent an apartment here all year round, thanks to a lot of digital nomads who can work here.

3. Sunny Beach

Sunny Beach is the largest and most popular tourist destination in Bulgaria. With long sandy beaches, extensive nightlife and a large number of restaurants and shops, this location is irresistible to tourists. For investors, the Sunny Beach offers a stable rental income during the summer season and the opportunity to invest in apartments in hotel complexes that can be managed as high-occupancy hotels. Did you know that Bulgaria offers ownership of a room in a hotel complex with full amenities as your apartment unit?

4. Byala

Byala is the cheapest of the listed locations, making it an attractive option for investors on a lower budget. Overall, an investment of around 1 million Czech crowns makes sense here. However, in this case a lower annual return of around 5-6% should be expected. This area is famous for apartments on top of the rocks with breathtaking sea views. Byala offers a quieter and a more natural place, which attracts tourists looking for an escape from the busy tourist centres. Investing here may be profitable due to lower entry costs and the rising popularity of this destination.

Advantages of investing in Bulgaria:

  • Affordability: Bulgaria is one of the cheapest destinations in Europe, which makes it possible purchase property at highly attractive price. 
  • Cheap lifestyle: Low costs of fuel, food and services make Bulgaria attractive not only for tourists but also for long-term living.
  • Beautiful nature: Lovely beaches, mountains and historical monuments provide many opportunities for recreation.
  • Friendly mentality: Bulgarians are known for their warmth and hospitality, which makes the country a pleasant place to live and visit.
  • Quality gastronomy: Bulgarian cuisine is tasty and affordable, which adds to the attractiveness of the destination.

Flexible financing options:

Buying real estate in Bulgaria is possible both for cash and in repayments. You don’t have to have 2,000,000 CZK (80,000 EUR) saved, but you only need 300,000 CZK (12,000 EUR), and the rest can be spread over up to 15 years of repayment. This financing model is similar to as buying a property in the Czech Republic in the form of an American mortgage, where you can mortgage your property with us. Alternatively, it is possible to set up the selected real estate within the framework of the Bulgarian RK directly in repayment and only have a smaller deposit as principal without the need for a pledge in the Czech Republic. And, of course, a mortgage can be solved directly in Bulgaria, but there is already a certain administration and other conditions associated with that.

Last but not least, you can join through our company as a co-investor and thus draw the benefits of passive income and at the same time have a free vacation every year (so you can see your investment with your own eyes :-))


If you are thinking of investing in real estate and looking for an attractive destination with high yield and low costs, Bulgaria is the ideal choice for you.
