Buying Property in Croatia

Information about the local property market,
house and apartment prices in Croatia

EU citizens can buy property in Croatia with the same rights and Croatian citizens. Non EU citizens may need approval from the Croatian ministry of justice in order to purchase, depending on the country of residence - this rarely poses any problems, but can take up to 6 months to fully conclude.

Although it is not a large country, it has more than 1000 miles of mainland coastline on the Adriatic, plus four times as much again on the islands. Croatia has an absolutely amazing and beautiful coastline, which is the main attraction for international property buyers. A country dotted with more than a thousand beautiful little islands, secluded coves, picturesque fishing villages, tranquil beaches and historic sites, Croatia is a holiday-maker's paradise.

As well as the outstanding natural beauty, Croatia has tight control on planning regulations, which constricts the supply of new property, particularly in coastal areas. This means that demand oustrips supply in many areas and helps protect the country against over-development. As well as foreign buyers, interest in holiday homes now comes from the domestic market, where incomes have been rising steadily over the last decade. The warm coastal climate and Mediterranean way of life are likely to ensure this trend continues for the foreseeable future.
