Property prices in Croatia

Hello everyone,

Finding affordable housing in Croatia is number one priority for newcomers. Tell us more about the estate market in your district/city/region.

What are the most desired places to live? What are the most affordable ones? What is the average cost of a rented flat? And what is the average sale price for an appartment or a house? Could you tell us more about local real estate policies/procedures? What about property tax or residency tax in Croatia?

What about you? Where do you live now? Is it a place you would recommend?

Thank you in advance for your clarifications.


It is certainly a buyers market in my area and prices are low, I paid 14,000 Euros for my house in a tiny village near the river Drava. There are pitfalls though, as lots of houses were built or extended  illegally. The government tried to get everyone to have such properties legalised by having plans drawn up etc.  but a lot could not afford to employ surveyors and have such work done.

I didn't actually use estate agents, most of the properties I viewed were advertised privately on the Njuskalo website, which is a sort of Croatian Ebay. I don't seem to pay any property tax but I don't know if I'm supposed to be paying something. I don't go looking for extra bills!
