Houses and Property for Sale in Hungary

The  staff of Hungaryproperty.org are a  group of professionals, who together can use their experience and knowledge of the Hungarian property market to assist you in your property search.

Finding a House for Sale in Hungary

Finding houses for sale in Hungary is very easy as any village that you visit will have at least one or even several for sale signs (Elado) on display and you can also find Hungarian property websites listing thousands of houses. However finding just one house for sale that is a good house to buy in Hungary can be extremely difficult for someone who is not familiar with the country and does not speak Hungarian. You can easily find that what seemed a very nice house turns out to be a house with many hidden problems that soon begin to reveal themselves after you have purchased the house. Finding the right location is also very difficult as Hungary has thousands of villages and small towns each with its own characteristics. Because of the way many villages are hidden down roads that lead to nowhere else, you would have to drive many thousands of miles to explore all the small towns and villages in just one small region of Hungary.

We can help you to find your property in Hungary, whether it is a permanent Hungarian home for your retirement, a second home in Hungary, a holiday home in Hungary or a house where you can get back to nature and live a self sustainable lifestyle. There is a far greater range of property types at affordable prices in Hungary than you will find in any other European country apart from Bulgaria. But there is no comparison between Hungary and Bulgaria. In fact Hungary is far more like a combination of Austria and France than it is like Bulgaria and houses in Hungary are built to a much higher standards than similar houses in Bulgaria. In fact many of the British expats in Hungary will tell you they have escaped from Bulgaria. Some have also escaped from the Spanish Costas and are happy to have done so.

We are glad that you have found our Hungarian property website and look forward to hearing from you whatever property enquiries you may have. As we said at the beginning of this page, the Hungary Property team are dedicated to helping our clients find a house in Hungary that is the right choice, one that they will be proud of and very pleased to have purchased. Hungary Property will ensure that your search for a suitable house in Hungary will be a pleasant experience and a great deal easier than it otherwise might be.

Other Property Buyers in Hungary

Although Hungary remains relatively unknown to British holiday makers and second home seekers, other nationals have already discovered the unique and special attraction of Hungary. When Hungary was still part of the communist bloc and long before the Wall came down, the East Germans came here for their holidays and party officials would have summer houses here. In the last twenty years the number of Germans and Dutch holidaying and buying property in Hungary has risen year by year, only fairly recently slowing down because of the problems in the the European economy. In more recent years Swedes and Russians have joined the Germans and Dutch in deciding that Hungary is a good place to holiday and buy property and there is now a significant number of both nationalities living in Hungary.

Over the years a small number of British citizens have discovered Hungary and there are about 1,000 British citizens who have purchased a permanent or holiday home around the Lake Balaton area. Another 1,000 will be found scattered in other parts of the country and of course there are many more in Budapest the captivating capital of Hungary. The number of British settling in Hungary has been rising year by year over the last few years as more would be emigrants and holiday home seekers from the UK find Spain too expensive and no longer as attractive as it used to be and Bulgaria not the idyllic country they imagined. Others have looked at Croatia with its enticing coastline but have found that comparable property to that found around lake Balaton is twice the price and apart from the beach Croatia has little to offer in comparison to Hungary.

Property That Can be Purchased in Hungary

As at 2012, UK citizens and citizens of other EU member states are allowed to buy one property in Hungary as a private individual. There are very few restrictions on the type of property that you can buy and what restrictions there are should soon be withdrawn due to the requirement for Hungary to observe the EU regulations regarding inter EU property purchases by EU citizens. At the moment EU citizens are excluded from buying weekend wine houses and their accompanying vineyards which were not originally intended for holiday homes or permanent living accommodation. You are also excluded from buying some properties that lie outside a village or town’s official boundaries and have not been classified in the land and property registry as residential properties. Agricultural land is also not available to non Hungarians.

The Hungary Property Team, has combined their talents, skills, contacts and experience, enabling them to offer -in our opinion- an unrivalled quality of service; this allows you the opportunity to bring your overseas property dream to reality in safe and trustworthy hands.
