Bulgaria is attracting increasing interest from property buyers around the world - fascinated by its property investment potential, glorious stretches of golden sands, historic towns and breathtakingly unspoilt scenery. With its low property prices Bulgaria provides many different types of accommodation to suit all tastes - whether it's a mountain retreat in a ski resort, a seaside apartment, a period country house, or a modern city-based apartment. And it comes with a low cost of living too. And with Bulgaria's accession to the EU, property in this country is set to become an even better investment.In this book, Jonathan White provides you with all the information you need to help you make a sound investment: the pros and cons of buying in Bulgaria; the 10 basic steps to buying a property in Bulgaria; how to finance your purchase; renovating and furnishing your home; understanding tax and insurance; letting your property to provide an income; buying land for enjoyment and investment; how to benefit from setting up a Bulgarian Company and, much more, including useful websites, contacts, practical tips, sample contracts and a full colour photo gallery.
