What is the best city to buy property in Bulgaria?


If you are going to move to Bulgaria for permanent residence or to come on holiday, it is better to find out in advance about all the pros and cons and the prospects of different cities. If you find it difficult to find the answer to where it is better to live - in the Bulgarian capital Sofia or in the resort town of Elenite, then get professional advice from the real estate agency Bulgaria Resales! We are always happy to help you not only to buy cheap and comfortable accommodation but also to find your piece of paradise on earth!


Before you buy an apartment in Bulgaria, you need to decide on the purpose of such purchase:


Permanent residence, work for the whole family.
The best choice is a place to live close to where you work. The best cities to live in for several years now are Burgas, Sofia, Varna, and Plovdiv.


Vacation, accommodation for pensioners.
Different resort towns are suitable for the year-round residence of elderly people and workers. Many people like the cities of Sveti Vlas, Ravda, Pomorie, and Sozopol, where the infrastructure is well developed and quite quiet during the "off-season". 


Rentals, subsequent sales. For such an investment, the resort of Sunny Beach, Nessebar, and other cities on the southern coast would be an excellent option.


Families with children who are considering moving to Bulgaria for permanent residence can be recommended to Sofia, Burgas, Varna, and Plovdiv. In large cities, it is easier to find work and more opportunities for children to study. Sofia stands out for its good socio-economic condition. A city with a population of one million offers many attractive offers for those wishing to invest in real estate. There are schools in many resorts, including the towns of Primorsko, Nessebar, Sveti Vlas, Pomorie, Tsarevo, and the resort village of Ravda. An important fact is that there are clinics in Nessebar, Sveti Vlas, and Sunny Beach, which operate all year round.


Which coast to choose - the south or the north?

When choosing which city to live in Bulgaria in, remember that with a small amount of convention the country can be divided into southern and northern parts. The point of attraction in the north is the largest city in the region and the Black Sea coast of Bulgaria, Varna. A large transport hub and a bustling resort with discotheques are famous for their good beaches, hot springs, and comfortable climate. The resort town of Golden Sands is no less popular among tourists. 


But in terms of popularity among holidaymakers and property buyers from the CIS countries and Europe, there are no equal resorts located on the southern coast.


The city of Burgas is a regional city. The resorts on the southern coast start from Elenite and stretch along the entire coast to the border with Turkey. The most famous of them are the towns of Pomorie, St. Vlas, Sozopol, Tsarevo, etc. Here you can find very advantageous options for buying a flat, as property prices in southern Bulgaria are quite moderate. An undeniable advantage is a proximity of Greece and Turkey (only 2-5 hours by car), excellent infrastructure, good sandy beaches, in contrast to the many stony coastlines of the northern part of the country.
