Real estate investment in Romania

The sale of apartments to foreigners in Romania isn’t limited: they can freely purchase, rent out, and sell properties.

The sale of land to non-EU citizens is prohibited. A land plot with a house can be bought for a legal entity if it’s a Romanian company.

Statistics confirm the liquidity of investments: residential real estate prices grow every quarter by an average of 1,3%. Five years ago, an apartment of 100 m² cost an average of €122,000, and today it is sold for €153,000.
