Why Invest In Romanian Property?

Worldwide property investors are now turning their attention to Romania as a promising bet amongst new EU member states. Below you will find out the main reasons why Romania is now such a popular investment location.

Quality new accommodation in both the residential and commercial sectors is in short supply in Romania. Investors are tapping into such high demand, with a view to profiting from the price increases that the current situation provides.

Property purchase specifically as an investment vehicle is a popular option amongst those aiming to capitalise on the growth potential of property in Romania. This type of investment can consist of an off-plan purchase for sale prior to project completion. Alternatively, a buy-to-let situation can provide reliable rental income from the property, along with substantial capital appreciation.
