How to easily profit from tourism in Hungary

Tourism in Hungary is one of the most important and fastest growing industries, amounting to 1558 billion HUF in 2016. In 2015, 15.6 million tourists have visited the country, in 2016 it was 16.8 million. One of the simplest ways to profit from this industry is buying an apartment to use as a vacation rental.

Useful Tips

On December 15, 2015, the National Assembly lowered the VAT rate for new dwelling units to 5% from the previous 27%, in a further attempt to boost the property market.

Property investment

Helpers is more than real estate agency – our job is to represent our clients’ interest and find them the best possible deals, whether through our partner agents or through our extensive network. We focus on selected and pre-evaluated, often unlisted “insider” opportunities that you will not find anywhere else. Whether you are an acquisition agent searching for the perfect premises, or looking to buy an apartment in Budapest for your family, Helpers is here to assist you through every step of the process.

The Hungarian real estate market

Hungary and especially Budapest has experienced a real estate price boom in the last two years. In 2003 alone, more than 270,000 purchase contracts were signed, but the number of the transactions did not even reach 90,000 between 2009 and 2013. However, 2014 was a turning point when this indicator started to increase, and the number of deals exceeded 110,000 by the end of the year. 135,000 transactions were conducted last year, and 2016 promises to be even busier – so it’s a good time to look for opportunities.

Investment opportunities

In our portfolio, we have included apartments, houses, villas and a wide range of residential real estate, as well as commercial properties (offices, buildings, hotels and restaurants) exclusively selected from the biggest agency portfolios and other sources available to us through our extensive network.

Pricing

Residential property

When buying an apartment or a house through Helpers, you will pay only a success fee (and obligatory costs like legal and administrative fees). Click here for details!

Commercial property

Similarly to residential property, our fee is based on a successful deal – while we can also provide you additional services to support your procedure. Read more at this link.

Property management

We do not leave you on your own even after you’ve bought a property – look in the property management section for our various packages and rates, most of which are available to clients buying a property with our assistance at a discount.

For a detailed quote or cost calculation, you’re always welcome to contact us and ask for a free consultation!

FAQs

There are various issues to consider, including taxation, but we can help you calculate the costs for each option – you can buy as an individual, set up a Hungarian holding company, or (if the property is currently owned by a company) buy the current corporate owner. Discuss these options with us in advance, so you can make an informed decision!

If you are from outside the EU, you will need a permit for buying property in Hungary – but don’t worry, we will acquire this licence for you as part of our real estate service.

Since we are not a real estate agency, our sole interest lies in finding you the best deal (rather than trying to sell a particular property), so we are more than happy to help figure out the best option for you!
