Buying a flat in Bulgaria by yourself


According to statistics, about 90% of buyers of the Bulgarian residential area prefer to use the services of a real estate agency. But there are 10% of people who are sure that they will manage on their own and will also save on commissions. But wanting to save even more on purchases, some people ignore the professional help of realtors and lawyers and start looking for a suitable residential area and the process of processing documents themselves. Unfortunately, it is not possible to save money and most of them have problems buying a home in Bulgaria.


What are the pitfalls that can be expected when buying a house in Bulgaria?


Let's start with the fact that news about the option of selling cheap Bulgarian real estate may come from legally illiterate people, such as neighbors, acquaintances, taxi drivers, who simply want to act as an intermediary, having received their tricky reward. But an ordinary person cannot learn all the nuances of a home, check its legal cleanliness, the presence of debts, etc.


After such a risky purchase, you can even lose your roof over your head completely, if after a while it turns out that the flat has become the property of the bank. 


Housing that has not been checked by professionals of real estate agencies may end up being pledged, mortgaged or in legal disputes, or be part of a trading company. There is a danger that scammers could buy a flat in Bulgaria cheaply, both on the secondary market and in a new building. After all, not all construction companies are distinguished by decency, compliance with contractual obligations and deadlines for the delivery of the object.
