2019 will be a year of balancing and an important test for the sustainability of the residential market in Bulgaria. The economic growth will be slower and it will not be as strong factor for the demand as it has been in the recent years of growth. The expert reports indicate a decline in the newly released mortgage lending, and the expectations for rising interest rates as well as the changes in bank lending conditions will reinforce this trend. In addition, the high investment activity in the residential segment will lead to a balancing in the supply/demand ratio. Аnd in order for a favorable housing environment to be achieved, given the context of intensified urbanization process in Sofia and the major cities, an ever-greater synergy between urban leaders and private investors will be required.

These will be, at a glance, the fundamentals that will define the environment in the coming years. The answer to the challenges are well-planned residential projects - those that contribute to the successful development of residential areas as an essential part of urban structure; those that are developed with responsibility towards the environment, taking into account and contributing to the plans for transport and social infrastructure development; those that use a modern design approach so that they are technological, functional and efficient, and last but not least - those that are responsive to the dynamically changing needs of modern residential occupiers.
