ISTRIA, COVID-19 AND REAL ESTATES05.08.2020. 13:54
As I announced in April this year, even while we were locked in houses, apartments and offices, real estate prices are stagnant, but beyond all expectations, the demand for them is on the rise.
COVID-19 has made a lot of mess in our daily lives, but also opened the eyes of many in terms of quality of life. I remember telling a friend at the time that I was feasting on the terrace of the family house, doing a barbecue in the garden, pets running around, and later I saw a video call from a car and showed him the landscape of Buzet. At that time, he was then "trapped" in an apartment with rare moments of going out into the fresh air and walking. The result was a video I got, which vividly showed a dog looking confused at its owner walking around all the rooms of the apartment and grabbing diagonals to make the walk longer. It was then that I realized that not everyone is equal to enduring this new-abnormal condition and how much I am essentially privileged by the quality of life versus living in an apartment. As I saw the difference, so many who live in big cities in apartments in the center of Zagreb, Belgrade, Munich, Ljubljana, Moscow… realized that you should have an oasis somewhere in nature that makes free territory and a place for plan "B".
On these findings, there was a post-crown real estate wave that increased interest in buying building land, houses with a garden that meet the criteria for creating a position for plan "B", which can easily become plan "A" if necessary.
For the umpteenth time, Istria has proven to be an ideal place to live, because in addition to being in the heart of Europe with its heart shape, Istria with its climate and excellent transport connections gives this feeling of an easily accessible destination desirable for living.
