Bulgaria investment plans lie in tatters

Firstrung: Property investment returns in Bulgaria have fallen by over 70% due mainly to over development - Assetz

Bulgaria has suffered a dramatic change of fortunes in recent months, with the annual rate of capital growth plummeting from a remarkable 36% in 2005 to 13.9% in September 2006, and possibly set to fall further. Some areas, such as the Blagoevgrad District including the Bansko ski region, actually experienced price falls in the second quarter although these recovered in the third quarter. The oversupply of apartments has created fierce competition for rentals, even in the face of quickly-growing tourist demand, which is being aggravated by reported poor management from local agencies. Overall the return on cash invested has dropped from 116% in 2005 to just 35% for the year up to the end of September 2006
