Poland is gradually turning into a well-developed European country. The living standards there are rather high already but the real estate prices have not caught up with the prices in Western European countries such as the neighboring Germany, for example. At the same time, the quality of the modern buildings is superb and the prices for apartments in Warsaw and other Polish cities are growing. If the current tendencies continue, an apartment in Warsaw can double in price in the next five years or so. This makes purchasing an apartment in the city now a very attractive option to consider.
We are bringing to your consideration the opportunity to invest in an apartment in the Holm House residential complex in Warsaw. The price starts at 3 000 EUR per square meter. The complex is located in the downtown area of Warsaw. The construction of the third section of the complex is expected to be completed by the end of the third quarter of 2022.

Does it make economic sense to invest in real property in Poland?
Experts agree that the prices for apartments in Warsaw are going to keep on growing and thus, you should not postpone investing in Polish real property.
According to the National Bank of Poland data, the prices for apartments in 7 major Polish cities have grown by 7.7% in per year terms in the first quarter of 2021.
The real estate market in Poland has changed significantly over the last ten years: it has matured and stabilized. The construction security regulations have also been toughened and this has increased the trust to the Polish real estate on the part of foreign investors. Some systematic costs have been involved in the stabilization processes, however, and these have had an impact on the growth of real property prices in Warsaw.
Poland is also attractive for foreign investors for macroeconomic reasons. They like the real value (inflation adjusted) of the property in the country, the number of average salaries required for purchasing an apartment there, the prices for goods and services in Poland and their dynamics in comparison to other EU countries, and so on.
In the times of the pandemic when the situation in the capital markets has become virtually unpredictable and when banks accept money from investors at negative interest rate, many wealthy people from other countries have started paying attention to the opportunity to invest on Polish real estate. The country looks more attractive at the moment than most other European jurisdictions as far as real property prices are concerned.
It has to be noted here that apartments in Warsaw are in demand not only with foreign investors who want to make some earnings from reselling them or renting them out but also with local people. According to Eurostat, 43.9% of Poles between 25 and 34 years of age still live with their parents. Statistics also shows that 37.6% of Poles live in overcrowded apartments, which is a very high figure for a European country. This indicates that Poland is experiencing a shortage of residential accommodations estimated at two to three million apartments. For this reason, one should not hope that the prices for real property in Warsaw are going to become any lower in the foreseeable future.
Today’s apartment buyer is more demanding and better educated than before. He/ she has high expectations in regard to the property that he/ she is buying. Poles are becoming wealthier and they are prepared to pay something extra if they can get better quality in return. They do not simply purchase a place to live: they want innovative technologies, modern conveniences that improve the comfort of their everyday lives and are ecologically friendly at the same time.
This sort of a demanding customer makes the developers invest more money in the construction process, which contributes to the growth of the apartment prices in Warsaw and other Polish cities. The costs of the land, the construction materials, and the labor are not going to fall either, so there is nothing that could bring about a decrease in real estate prices in Poland over the next few years.
Today, Polish banks offer mortgages at a low interest rate. Actually, mortgages have never been cheaper in the country. Many people use this opportunity and take our loans to buy apartments in Warsaw or elsewhere. The monthly payments have become more affordable as they have been reduced by a few hundred zloty over the recent years.
We also have to note that the banks introduced certain restrictions at the start of the pandemic but these restrictions have been lifted now. This means that a larger number of people have an opportunity to take out mortgages. In addition to that, a growing group of Polish banks now gives mortgages to anyone who has paid only 10% of the price of the apartment from his/ her own pocket. Foreign nationals are eligible to apply for mortgages in Poland as well. The applicant, however, has to have a credit record. If you register a company in Poland, you can make it the borrower, then rent out your apartment, and use the rental payments to pay back the loan.
Real estate market in Poland: forecasts for 2022
Due to the factors described above, a rise in real property prices is forecast for 2022. Especially if the coronavirus pandemic ends soon, the market is going to stabilize fast. Another factor to bear in mind is that new energy efficiency regulations have been introduced in Poland this year. These regulations will make it impossible for real estate prices to fall. Developers are now required to use renewable energy sources and this means that the costs of construction are going to become higher. Hence, the prices of the apartments are going to grow as well.
