One well known English real estate web site had an interesting way of describing the situation on the Croatian real estate market!
Under the title “Croatia open for business”, the article states that the liberalization of the Croatian real estate market is an excellent news for foreigners and all potential investors in real estate. It also states how the new situation was one of the terms for Croatian entry into the European Union, so all buyers from non-EU countries still have to fulfill the reciprocity term, which means their countries have to allow Croatian buyers into their market too. The parliamentary opposition was against these new regulations cause it opens the doors for all foreigners to buy the most valuable properties of all in Croatia, the land and real estate on the Adriatic coast.
Still, this does not mean that you can’t enjoy the benefits of these new laws. Leave the Croatian politics to the polititians, the market is secure and safe and ready for investment.
