The most favorable terms in the history of Slovakia
Situation in the Slovak real estate market is currently extremely positive. This is evidenced by a number of indicators of housing affordability.
"With the last year's decrease in interest rates on housing loans in the eurozone, housing loans are now provided at the most favorable terms in the history of the Slovak Republic. Low interest rates combined with a fall in real estate prices in recent years have resulted in the highest affordability of housing since 2002," explains Boris Fojtík, an economic analyst.
Less than 9 gross average annual salaries were needed to buy a flat in Bratislava with an area of 70 m2 in 2014, while historically the average value is about 10 annual salaries.
Regions like Nitra or Trenčín require less than 5 gross annual salaries to buy a flat, which is again the saving of one gross annual salary compared to historical average.
