Sooner or later, we think about life, sum up some results, ask ourselves the question: “Does everything go the way you want?” And thank God, if the answer is: “Yes. That's exactly right. ” And there would be more such people, satisfied with themselves and with what is around - work, neighbors, country, climate, orders, children, prospects, stability and so on. And even in this case, getting acquainted with the new information is also useful, are you successful because you know how to use the information correctly and on time? And friends and relatives are drawn to you for advice and help?
And if you are only looking for the answer to the question “what, how to change your life for the better,” then you are definitely at the right place.
A little information about Bulgaria can help those who think about the changes in their lives and decide to connect it with this country. The availability of real estate will not automatically make you a resident of the country, but there is a certain procedure that allows you to obtain a residence permit, which, in comparison with other EU countries, is quite accessible to the average Russian. That is why Bulgaria is so popular for acquiring European real estate. And for those who are less decisive or less informed, who want to make their choice for sure, “on their own skin”, as they say, to check their future habitat, there is an intermediate option - to temporarily live in the country. And here we will advise, answer all questions, choose a rental, do not “drop out”, help.
A mild, warm climate, cultural identity, similarity of mentality, simplified survival in a new country, rich history and preserved architecture, an abundance of balneological factors, the sea. Low prices.
Needed if you are a tourist and not an EU citizen. Obtaining a visa is not difficult and takes about 7-10 days, this is the collection of documents, their delivery to the visa center and waiting. By the way, there are a number of benefits exempting foreigners from paying the registration and consular fees (for children, disabled people, for example, etc.)
You will not need a national visa if you have a Schengen visa. Russians stay in the country on a visa C in accordance with international law of stay up to 90 days, a visa can be obtained for this period. A visa can be a single entry and multivisa.
Visa D is issued for property owners who wish to obtain a residence permit, in this case, the regime, as you know, does not have such restrictions, it should be examined in more detail if necessary.
It depends on the purpose of the visit. For lovers of the sun and the sea - from June to October. But not spoiled Russians are already swimming in May. For fans of winter skiing - from December to April inclusive. For those who love excursions, history, architecture - welcome in late spring, early summer and early fall. For spa relaxation, any season is suitable. There is no specific time for acquiring real estate. Welcome anytime!
Air, train and own cars. It is also possible by sea, from Novorossiysk to Burgas by ferry, if you are using any transport (with an annual schedule update).
International airports - Sofia, Plovdiv, Varna, Burgas. There are flights from Moscow, St. Petersburg, Rostov, Krasnodar and others. Scheduled and charter flights. Charter flights are usually seasonal, inexpensive, companies can be trusted (on aviobilet.com, for example).
Flights via Istanbul are also popular, followed by bus. This option is good for those who want to save on flights, who are not burdened with cargo and young children, and who want to spend a day in Istanbul between a plane and a bus without renting a hotel.
Summer sea: Mermaid, Albena, Konstantin and Elena, Zlatni pasati, Slanchev Bryag, and you’re hailing: Balchik, Varna, Obzor, Sveti Vlas, Nessebar, Pomorie, Burgas, Sozopol, Primorsko, Kiten and other cities
Winter mountains: Borovets, Pamporovo, Vitosha, Bansko city.
There is. This is St. Vlas, recognized as a prestigious resort. Located at the foot of the Stara Planina Mountains, on the coast. Amazing clean air, combining all the advantages of the sea and mountains. It is highly recommended for those who have lung problems, allergies, especially good for summer hardening of children. Year-round accommodation is also possible.
The fact that it is ideal for people of all categories of health. The climate is temperate continental and dry throughout the country, mostly subtropical on the coast, and in the eastern zones the climate is influenced by the Black Sea (which Russians are very familiar with and beloved in southern Russia). The main thing is that there is no incredible heat and stuffiness.
There are a lot of sunny days in the country, and the seasons are clearly expressed in time, which is actually very nice. Far from all, the “blurred” seasons are suitable for both psychological sensations and health. A very important point, by the way.
Winter is not burdensome, in the mountains, of course, colder. In Sofia, in winter, on average, minus two degrees Celsius, 42% of the precipitation. In Bulgaria, not everywhere there is centralized heating, which is unusual for Russians, therefore, if you wish, you can correctly and economically organize individual heating, this is simple and solvable.
There is. They are similar to Russian ones. In settlements - no more than 50 km, outside settlements - 90 km, and no more than 130 km per hour on highways. Bulgarians are mostly law abiding on the roads. Incidents on the roads are sorted out without exhausting the soul of the participants in the incident; the procedure for resolving the situation is simple and feasible. So say those Russians who fell into traffic situations.
The recommendations are mainly related to the availability of urban infrastructure, that is, amenities for living. Of course, this is Sofia, suitable for the economically active population. These are Plovdiv, Varna, Burgas, Stara Zagora, Russia and other cities, not necessarily located on the coast.
In Sofia, the most attractive areas are Lozenets and Vitosha, in which commercial real estate is most often purchased and rented. And the neighborhoods of Boyana, Simeonovo and Dragalevtsi are considered prestigious for living.
During the winter period in Sunny Beach, tourist life practically stops, but very many complexes are serviced all year round, people live in them and many of them, after several years, claim that winter is even better, calmer. Moreover, the Internet is high-speed, isolation is not felt, and peace is healing. We will not argue, everyone can find their own option and be satisfied with it.
Yes you can. It is very important here, as, indeed, in any country, not to be caught by crooks. Our company Eurodom21 guarantees the safety and purity of the transaction. Do not be afraid for a single second. We will provide you with photo and video materials for selection, we will answer ALL questions, etc. The secure relationship algorithm has been worked out.
Of course they are. This is bad news.
They can be completely avoided. It's a good news.
Risks are maximum for those who decide to make a purchase on their own. It is difficult to take into account all the nuances. It is possible to minimize risks by contacting a reliable real estate agency such as EuroDom21. Lawyers will accompany you throughout the entire process, help you understand all the cases of contracts, explain all unclear points, and most importantly, check the documents, thereby guaranteeing the security of the transaction. And, by the way, this will take a little time, because we work only with trusted partners and on a “single window” system.
When buying a new finished or under construction apartment - we will provide all the available reliable information about the materials used. This is the real practice that we are following.
When you buy the so-called "secondary market", that is, from the owners, you will see the apartments already inhabited with your own eyes, ask any questions about operation, compare the condition of the object with the desired one, compare the price. It is advisable to listen to the advice of a consultant.
Various. As elsewhere, in any country and in any city. Cheaper, of course, in the countryside. First of all, the price depends on the footage, on the location of the object (closer and further to the sea, for example). This is absolutely obvious.
For an approximate orientation: a one-room studio apartment in Sunny Beach can be bought from 15 thousand euros, it will be an area of 30 sq.m; one-bedroom apartment - from 20 thousand euros, 2-bedroom apartment of 70 square meters. m - from 30 thousand euros.
The season is not important for the purchase, it does not affect the purchase price, there are practically no seasonal fluctuations. But we recommend winter-spring. Why? Just by the summer you will have more time to coordinate all issues with a visa, furniture (if the apartment is not furnished), arrange visits to relatives, their dates and visas and other pleasant moments to solve without haste. And if you purchase an apartment for year-round use, then you will have the opportunity to get acquainted with the winter-spring period, which is also useful.
Well, all of a sudden - you bought an apartment, and for some reason you can’t come to this apartment - we will help, don’t worry, we will find tenants (vacationers) for you, this will reduce maintenance costs or completely free them, or bring additional profit. What does it depend on? From the degree of readiness of the apartments, season and proximity to the sea.
If the apartments were purchased in the so-called complexes, then for the year-round maintenance, technical support and security you will have to pay a fee. In different complexes, depending on the number of services provided, it varies from 4 euros and above (up to 15 euros) per 1 sq. Km. m per year. This is approximately the same as in Russia, but only in Bulgaria you do not pay for heating as part of this fee, it is paid as utilities and only during periods of use, which is undoubtedly nice. Also, water, electricity services are paid separately - how much they spent while they lived, for example, in the summer, they paid so much. The main thing here is not to delay the time with payment, they will turn it off for sure. And for the connection they will take extra money, which is unpleasant.
If you buy an apartment in an ordinary residential building, then you do not need to pay for the services of a management company, that is, you can definitely save. However, if you decide to rent out your property in the future, it should be borne in mind that the management company takes care of the common parts of the building, maintains the landscape, pool, etc., which makes such housing more attractive for rent. Utilities are paid in the same way, according to the amount of expense. Counters - anytime, anywhere.
The Internet can be connected to a SIM card or stationary, optionally, approximately 10 euros per month.
All owners in Bulgaria, both foreigners and local residents, pay real estate tax, this expense is not burdensome and depends on the meter. Also, each year the owner pays separately by mail or online tax on garbage.
Two ways. The first is to conclude an agreement with a management company that services the complex and, as a rule, provides such services. The second is to conclude an agreement with an independent company - such as ours, EuroDom21. We are ready to provide rental all year round.
Not. There are no legal risks if the transaction is completed correctly. There are no political risks either, Bulgaria is a country without shocks, it is calm here. The right of ownership is protected by law - for both Bulgarians and foreigners, the law is one.
The main thing I want to say
We are only conditionally "seller" and "buyer".
Buying real estate will help to save the accumulated funds, to prevent them from collapsing in a crisis. A new stage in life - for sure! - will bring new joys. And no matter what decision you make - to continue relations with our company or not - just be happy! Dear, our customers!
