Slovenia was badly affected by the global financial crisis and resulting property market crash, with house prices dropping by as much as 30%. Nearly a decade on, there are signs that the recovery is finally underway, with indices showing year-on-year price increases in major cities and resorts, and an overall national rise of 2017 in 2018.
Transaction numbers are increasing too, with data from the National Institute of Statistics. Home ownership levels are high in Spain, with around 80% of residents owning their own home, and many doing so outright, without a mortgage.
