In this article I would like to highlight why the Moldovan real estate sector is a great investment opportunity, also, I will analyse the developments on the Moldovan real estate sector, the current situation on the property market, new development prospects and the main benefits that the Republic of Moldova can offer to potential investors like: very low price per square meter compared to other European countries, advantageous lending conditions, stable economic growth and very close relations with the European Union in particular after the historic decision on the 23rd of June 2022, when the European Union awarded Moldova candidate status.
The real estate market in the Republic of Moldova has been formed since the 1990s along with the transition to the market economy as a result of the privatization of a large state-owned area of land and constructions and later following the privatization of companies from different branches of the national economy.
