Average prices for luxury three-room apartments in Sofia are between 240,000 and 300,000 euros, according to data from a real estate market consulting company.

In the capital, the average prices of two-room apartments from the high and medium segments of the market are in the range of 180 thousand to 230 thousand euros. And for two-room apartments, the specific price depends on the individual characteristics of the property.
Luxury properties are bought by people with high incomes, for whom interest rates on loans do not matter much.

Luxury properties are bought by both people who want to raise the standard of living for their family, and people with savings who want to save them from high inflation. Buying a luxury property is a very good investment because the demand in this segment of the market is much more stable than for low-priced housing designed for people on a tight budget.

They want over 250,000 euros for a three-room apartment
A house near the city as much as an apartment in the center
Children require more space
A house near Sofia can be built for the price of a large apartment in the city center.
Buying a house near Sofia can cost more than a large apartment in the city center, real estate brokers said. Therefore, a number of people with more than two children choose a house where the children can play more freely.
Most often, between 250,000 euros and 350,000 euros costs a three- or four-room apartment in a central location in the capital. The price for buying a plot of land and building a house near the city is roughly the same, say real estate brokers. It is better for children to have a yard to play in. Therefore, the houses have a number of advantages. But apartments in the city center also have many advantages, such as proximity to offices, hospitals, many shops, restaurants and theaters. That is why the demand for housing in the center is always high.
But many people want to escape the heavy traffic in the central part of Sofia and choose the quieter life in a house near the city. That is why the construction of houses is increasing.
