The popularity of cottages, holiday houses and apartments is again increasing in Slovakia. Typical buyers are small families with children who have settled down and older couples searching for free time activities, informed nehnutelnosti.sk portal.
The most attractive localities are the Vysoké and Nízke Tatry with their ski resorts, Záhorie, the Malé Karpaty, Myjava, Orava and Slovenský Raj,
“The greatest amount of investment within tourism is heading to these areas, where the most expensive cottages and villas are located,” the portal stated.
An average price for holiday real-estate does not exist, according to analyst Martin Lazík.
“The prices are really hard to compare. When talking about a flat, we take the square metres into consideration. When we talk about a cottage, floor area does not play a significant role,” explained Martin Lazík, as quoted by the TASR newswire. The price is influenced by locality, standard and facilities.
The prices of newly-built holiday houses, considered to be luxury properties, could reach half million euros. In contrast, older cottages, in secluded places with poor accessibility, out of main tourist areas could cost about 6,000 or 7,000 euros.
“The prices of holiday-houses do not change as dramatically as the prices of flats or houses. However, we could see a slight increase of prices in the long-term. Because of the various structures on offer, we can say that this segment of the market is stable,” said Lazík, as quoted by TASR.
Interested people prefer cottages with at least two rooms. According to the statistics of nehnutelnosti.sk portal, this was the category most searched in the first quarter of 2017 after flats, houses and land for houses.
