How do you foresee your market in 2024 and beyond? What is the probable price growth, arrival of new projects, buyer profile and nationality changes etc?

The Serbian real estate market in 2024 and beyond is poised for a period of steady growth and transformation, reflecting a blend of enduring appeal and emerging trends. The market’s trajectory is influenced by a mix of traditional investor confidence, evolving buyer preferences, and demographic shifts, all set against the backdrop of global and local developments.

Market Stability and Price Growth

Given the prevailing investor sentiment for security and stability, the Serbian real estate market is unlikely to see drastic price declines. Instead, a steady or moderate price growth can be expected, particularly in sectors and locations that align with current and emerging trends. Projects along rivers and those aligned with the urbanization of cities, especially with an eye on significant events like EXPO 2027 in Belgrade, are likely to maintain, if not increase, their value due to their unique appeal and the anticipated influx of visitors and international attention.

Emerging Hotspots and New Projects

Emerging cities such as Novi Sad, Nis, and Kragujevac, along with developments outside city limits offering gated communities with robust transportation links, are set to become new hubs for business and living. These areas are attracting interest for their blend of security, accessibility, and quality of life, potentially leading to a proliferation of new projects catering to these demands.

Evolving Buyer Profiles and Preferences

The profile of buyers is becoming increasingly diverse, with a notable shift towards properties that offer not just superior construction quality but also enhanced amenities such as wellness centers, gyms, and eco-friendly features. This shift is partly driven by the younger generations’ demand for sustainability and convenience, indicating a broader trend towards more conscious living environments.

Additionally, the substantial influx of foreigners, as evidenced by the significant number of work permits issued and migration from conflictaffected regions, is reshaping the buyer demographic. This change is not only increasing demand for rental properties, leading to a spike in rental prices, but also likely to result in a more multicultural buyer and investor base, further diversifying the market.

Nationality Changes and Global Integration

With over 200,000 individuals having migrated to Serbia in recent years, the country’s real estate market is increasingly reflective of a global community. This demographic shift is expected to continue influencing the market, with a considerable number of new residents from abroad choosing to make Serbia their permanent home. Such trends suggest a potential shift in the nationality mix of buyers and investors, with a growing number of nonnative participants in the market.
