Rental Prices in Sofia
In the recent years, there has been a slight decrease in the rental prices of properties on the central commercial street of Sofia (Vitosha street). The reason for this was the appearance of many shopping malls within the territory of Sofia. Since no new shopping malls are expected to appear in the near future and the purchasing power of the residents of Sofia continues to increase, we can expect a steady increase of the rental prices on Vitosha street and other commercial streets in the city centre of Sofia. At present, the average monthly rental price of properties on Vitosha street is EUR 52 per square meter.
