Slovenian Real Estate market - lively again! Meet some of our projects

After a long sleepy period the Slovenian real estate market is coming to life again. From the year 2008, when real estate was most expensive, until 2015, apartment prices have dropped by one fourth on average. The prices of houses have gone down 30 percent.

Last year the drop in prices came to a halt. According to figures released by the Slovenian Statistical Office, real estate prices slightly rose by 0,8 percent. Sales have increased across the country, but there are still differences between the regions. 1,6 billion euros worth of real estate was sold last year. That's four percent more than in 2014, but still almost 30 percent less compared to 2007. More



Slovenia as an opportunity for alternative investment, Project case: geriatric center Ljubljana

Due to excessive availability of capital and intensive investments in the field of real estate primarily on developed markets, we are facing an intensive market yields compression. Therefore in last couple of years investors are more and more focusing their investments in niche real estate segments, which provide for higher yields. Slovenia can only offer limited quantity of quality investments in core segments (retail, offices, residential), however it has a competitive logistical position and natural resources for alternative investments such as: hospitals, health tourism, elderly homes, active retirement centers, student campuses, micro living facilities and data and logistics centers.


Airport Business Park

AIRPORT BUSINESS PARK is most suitable for logistic, light production and airport service support activities, although the intended use of land allows development of a broader scope of business activities. Since September 2016 construction of a new airport by-pass road is under way, which will connect the AIRPORT BUSINESS PARK directly to the A2 highway (Ljubljana – Munich). The road will be completed by year-end 2017. An amendment to the valid spatial plan is in procedure, ensuring more flexibility to investors in terms of optimized usage of construction plots. Early bird investors can expect to start construction in the second half of 2017, aiming for project closeouts in 2018.
