In the first half of this year, the value of the real estate market in Serbia was 1.8 billion euro and about 47,000 properties were sold, according to the State Geodetic Survey Office (RGZ).
The total value of real estate sold is 12% higher than in the same period last year, when the market value was 1.6 billion euro.
“Although the volume of real estate sales has slightly decreased compared to the same period last year, when 48,000 purchase contracts were concluded, the trend shows that the price of real estate has increased, taking into account the increase in the total value of the amount traded which is 200 million,” said the RGZ. “This is due to a 13% increase in the sale of apartments in new buildings, and it is normal for new apartments to come with a higher price than old ones.”
In regional terms, 27% of total real estate sales took place in Belgrade and 36% in Vojvodina.
