Second home for German and Austrian property buyers in Croatia
As the modern real estate market continues to expand, buyers from Germany and Austria are increasingly looking for a second home in Croatia. With its crystal clear sea waters, stunning beaches, quaint villages and rich cultural heritage, this country has become a popular destination for Germans and Austrians in search of an idyllic getaway. In particular, for such buyers there are several factors that make buying property in Croatia particularly attractive.
Firstly, Croatian legislation offers a significantly lower taxation for property owners compared to other European countries, which also applies to non-residents of the country. This means that German and Austrian investors feel more at ease when choosing a property here. Secondly, due to its location in the European Union (EU), citizens of EU member states such as Germany and Austria have easy access to own and manage their property in Croatia within hours of driving on excellent highways without having to go through difficult bureaucratic procedures or obtain special permits or visas in advance. Finally, while this is not necessarily limited to German and Austrian buyers, it should also be noted that property prices in Croatia remain fairly low compared to many other European countries, making it an ideal choice for those looking for value for money when investing abroad.
In conclusion, it can be noted that with the entry of Croatia into the Schengen from January 1, 2023, all border control posts with the EU countries were eliminated. This gave residents of the European Union the freedom to visit their property at any convenient time. Croatia has been and remains one of the most cost-effective and safe destinations for affordable real estate combined with a decent standard of living. Properties in Croatia have high liquidity and excellent potential, which over time can make almost any purchase worthwhile!
