The lack of supply makes housing less affordable for young families, both in the Dubrovnik area and in other coastal cities and in the capital Zagreb. Buying real estate is still a way to save money in an inflationary environment.
Experts note that market segmentation is taking place in Dubrovnik. This is reflected in apartment prices, which vary depending on the sea view, year of construction and level of preservation. The influx of foreign clients, the lack of new projects and the growth of tourism also affect the situation. Recently, the following trend has also emerged: EU citizens go in search of real estate in Dubrovnik, rent housing for six months that is similar to the required one, get acquainted with the city and only after a while confirm their intention to purchase.
