In the list of nations we analysed, we certainly could not leave out a unique state, particular and often not taken into account by investors, as little known. All of us, at least once in our lives, have wished to abandon our daily lives to experience the thrill, even if only mental, to start again from scratch, perhaps in a state totally different from their own, both for culture and for location.
Close to Greece and with a mountainous terrain, harsh but also rich in opportunities, Macedonia is the protagonist of our guide today. We will give you all the information you need to be able to take that long-awaited step by buying a property in Macedonia.
So, if you are ready to resolve any doubt about this country, we can start with our mini guide, signed Realigro!
Let's start with some purely geographical notions. The largest city and capital of Macedonia is Skopje, with its 600,000 inhabitants. But besides it, there are also other notable metropolitan realities such as Kumanovo, Tetovo, Gostivar, Struga, Bitola, Prilep, Ocrida and Veles. What characterizes this nation is undoubtedly its great cultural identity from an artistic, architectural and musical point of view. There are numerous festivals that are organized precisely in accordance with the Macedonian tradition. For this reason, every year, this state welcomes tourists from all over the world.
The official language is Macedonian, resulting from a mix of different cultures such as Albanian and Turkish. Another language recognized as official is Armenian, but do not despair. For any information you can still speak English. At present, this state is a parliamentary democracy, and it is one that is particularly active in international relations. There are a great many different organisations in which Macedonia is involved. The next step is to unite with NATO and the European Union.
But what are the documents needed to gain access to this land? Since October 2008, to travel to Macedonia, you must have an identity card if you come from a country that is a member of the Schengen area. Once in situ, you will have to fill in an entry form; if you intend to stay longer than six months, a visa is required. Another question of fundamental importance is the cost of living in Macedonia. In order to better define the overall framework, we have included the main expenses that can be incurred living in this country.
Meal in a restaurant 4.10 euro
Milk (1 litre) 0,79 euro
Eggs (regular) (12) 1,30 euro
Water (1.5 litre bottle) 0.38 euro
One way ticket (local transport) 0,57 euro
1 liter of petrol 1,10 euro
We can understand that Macedonia is particularly advantageous in comparison with many other European countries. But will it also be so when it comes to buying a property? Let's find out now!
As for rents in Macedonia, if you opt for the capital, you start from 188 euros per month, while for the outlying areas, prices start from 130 euros per month.
To sign a contract of sale instead, you can also find opportunities in particularly attractive areas from 50,000 euros, up to even double this figure for ancient villas behind beautiful lakes.
There is nothing more to add, if not a good trip to this wonderful land and all to discover!
