Why it is worth buying property in Batumi, Georgia

Batumi is the most famous resort city in Georgia which is an inarguable fact, backed up by relevant statistics – more than 2 million visitors for 2019. Of course, the tourist boom, as the key determining factor for real estate market in Batumi, has had a significant impact on the real estate market.  Batumi attracts and will continue to attract tourists for many reasons, including:

  • more than 280 sunny days a year;
  • warm Black Sea;
  • one of the best entertainment infrastructures in the Black Sea;
  • affordable holiday offers;
  • optimal price and quality of service ratio.

No wonder that Batumi has every chance to become the “Black Sea Las Vegas”, which is actively promoted by the government of Adjara. Their plans include opening more than 50 casinos and making the city ​​one of the largest gambling centers in the world. And by the way, the close proximity to Turkey, where gambling is prohibited, is another, highly determining factor.

In addition, we should keep in mind that the Georgian government continuously pursues the policy aimed at increasing the tourist flow from 9 million to 12 million foreigners per year. Of course these expectations will be adjusted given the influence of the coronovirus, but the epidemic will end soon, the borders will open and the tourist flow will gradually recover.

Thus, although at the moment the demand for rental housing has decreased, but after a while it will recover and even increase.  

In addition, investing in real estate, including in Georgia, is advisable, even because of the need to diversify risks. Georgia has very loyal laws, no restrictions apply to foreigners, and their property rights are guaranteed at a very high level.

Keeping money in foreign currency at European, Russian and other banks is not always rational. After all, deposit rates in USD rarely exceed 1% per annum, and now, even against the backdrop of the struggle with the consequences of the economic crisis, they will generally go downward and many businessmen will have to revisit their investment decisions taking a closer look at the real estate. And therefore, investing in residential real estate in Georgia, Batumi, can be a prudent investment decision.

Furthermore, residential housing in Georgia on the seashore can also become a place for personal living and recreation. The advantages are numerous: developed infrastructure, affordable prices for food, clothing and accommodation. Thanks to this, living here is even more comfortable than in many European, Russian or other cities.
