According to statistics from recent years, but also according to our real experience, among the main foreign buyers of real estate in Bulgaria are citizens of various European Union countries, as well as residents of non-EU countries, especially Russia and Ukraine.
In the past, the largest foreign buyers of real estate in Bulgaria were mainly citizens of the Russian Federation. Given the current situation, they are now the biggest sellers of real estate. Their sales of real estate stem from the fear that they will be refused entry to the European Union. However, many Russian citizens still live there all year round.
The biggest boom of buyers experienced residential real estate in Bulgaria last year 2021 mainly from the Ukrainian side. For obvious reasons, Ukrainian citizens sought refuge in a stable European country that has the lowest property prices.
