Property prices in Croatia rose by about 14% in the first quarter of this year compared to the same period last year. But what’s more interesting is about 73.6% compared to the same period in 2015. Experts have noted a growing gap between the sales prices asked by sellers and the prices buyers ultimately pay. Fluctuations sometimes reach up to 20% depending on the area where the property is sold. The selling price of housing remains high, especially in Zagreb, where a “square” of living space is estimated at about 3,000 euros in new buildings, and about 2,600 euros on the secondary market. On the Adriatic, prices vary from one part of the coast to another. Around Dubrovnik, asking prices for housing are around 3,700 euros per square meter, while prices in Istria are around 3,000 euros.
