Propertyfor sale in Macedonia
If you are interested in buying a property for sale in Macedonia it is not the best period because it is in a developping moment.
Macedonia's real estate market is growing in a very interesting way. In this momemnt the economy is strong and the political conditions are improving.
The national property for sale price index grew by 7 % during the year up to the first quarter of 2018. It was the biggest increase in last nine years, according to a research made by the National Bank of the Republic of Macedonia.
According to European standards, Macedonia is a poor country, with a total population of around 2.1 million people and a per capita GDP of US $ 5.474 in last year. Corruption is everywhere. There is a lot of emigration. A large part of the population lives in poverty, especially the Albanians who are discriminated.
After the price increases of 10.8% in 2007 and 25.3% in 2008, the real estate market in Macedonia was slow, a cause of the global crisis, the problems in neighboring Greece and its own prolonged political crisis.
However, residential construction remains weak.Macedonia recorded zero economic growth in 2017.
The economy has improved significantly, supported by rising government spending and subsidies and by improving the political situation in the country. The economy is expected to grow by 3.1% this year and another 3.3% in 2019, according to the European Commission (EC), but it is not a positive moment to buy a property for sale in Macedonia.
