1. How is the real estate market situation in Montenegro?

After a relative boom in the period of 2006-2008 due to a lack of good product for sale and a solid demand, the market has turned healthier today , prices are very stable and a growing number of potential  private and corporate investors are coming back or become awareness of the numerous opportunities, in particular on the coast and Bako Kotorska-tivat in particular. Europeans and customers from long-haul destinations are more present. Besides the traditional stone houses, waterfront apartments , they are showing interest in lands, ruins for renovation, and in particular for new high quality and eco-friendly residential developments along the coast.  They are beautiful projects under construction, with stunning views, modern amenities and equipment, and attractive prices.We expect with the rythm it started, for the coming 5 years a very high demand in this region.

I will expose you some facts:  the world bank in "doing business" report for 2012, place Montenegro per easiness of doing business at 56th position out of 183 countries.
The average income of direct foreign investments in Montenegro for the past 3 years is approximatively 850M€, the GBP for 2011 : 2,6% WTTC predicts an average annual rate of growth in Travel & Tourism investment for Montenegro of 16,4% a year from 2011 to 2021 which claimed to be  higher than for any other country in the world ! and Twice as fast as that for India and China.
Montenegro is also largely oriented towards real estate and Tourism development with stimulative investment climate (income tax 9%, VAT 17%, customs rate 6,6%, tax on real estate transaction 3%), in the way of European Union integration.
And let me remind you that it is the unique country in Europe, in a such small surface area, that offers such pittoresque beauty landscapes!  We call also Montenegro the country of 11 countries...

No more, foreigners can now purchase in there own name: apartments, houses, lands, commercial, hotel registered in the cadastre and the Notary takes care of all the ownership documents, he provides the legal purchasing process with our coordination; However, foreigners must be aware that non urbanized lands cannot be on their ownership, they need to open a montenegrin company. We always inform our clients about what they can build on the lands, we advise them on residential/commercial or touristic projects, as well as other key legal, administrative and property information.
