How I bought apartments in Sunny Beach in Bulgaria

Having received such information from relatives, we examined the site of the developer, who was also a seller of apartments, and contacted the sales manager. After that, they assessed their financial capabilities and decided to purchase two-room apartments in the Sweet Homes 3 complex, which is under construction on the 4th line. The contract was signed in 2014, and the object was commissioned in 2016. It was then that I came to Bulgaria for the first time and issued real estate rights.

How we chose apartments
Choosing the right apartment was very easy. The site of the developer has complete information about the price, area and layout of the apartment. In 3D mode, you can see how the surrounding area looks. We chose apartments on the 4th floor overlooking the pool and the main entrance to the complex. It is worth saying that all apartments are decorated in a single design style, equipped with furniture and household appliances (TV, microwave, air conditioning, refrigerator). Continue reading

Personal experience renting a house and living in winter

I absolutely did not want to bother with visas. The presence of one passport has become a basic priority in finding a country that can be visited in the winter of 2019–2020. To my surprise, browsing the Internet, I found a huge list of visa-free countries for Russians. 116 pieces to be exact. Of course, the list contained countries such as Kyrgyzstan or Belarus, but there were South Africa, Seychelles, Nepal, Mexico, and Cyprus.

I’ll get ahead of myself by saying that now I’m just in Cyprus, but first things first.

Finding out where I can go with only a passport, of course, I began to study the prices of airlines. For example, in South Africa you can fly in the winter for 25 thousand rubles., In Cyprus for 7 thousand rubles. Okay, a ticket to Cyprus is not so expensive. Let’s see how much housing costs.

Here the fun begins. There was an absolute misunderstanding of how to rent a property abroad. How to look if there will be a lease in what language? Booking.com does not allow reservations for more than a month, and the prices are absolutely unbelievable. Continue reading

Relocation to permanent residence in Deggendorf, Germany

For example, I was surprised why most Germans prefer to live in rented apartments, if there is an opportunity to purchase their own housing. On this issue, my spouse and I had a different opinion. Now we live in our 4-room apartment in a small town. But first things first.

Why we decided to buy our home
Immediately upon arrival, we got to a temporary camp, where we stayed for several days. There we were issued documents and identified with the place of residence. Since most of my relatives live in Bavaria, we asked for it there. In addition, it is a rich land where you can easily find work, which can not be said about the north of Germany.

They sent us to the small town of Deggendorf on the banks of the Danube with a population of 38 thousand people. It is located 130 km from Munich. Even in the camp, we were informed that there are free social apartments there, one of which we can call in. No, they are not like our Russian communal apartments or Khrushchev’s. Social – because they are located in houses that were built by the city administration especially for poor citizens. Continue reading
