Hungary has a strong economy and stable political system, so it attracts investors from all over the world. It is also a member of the European Union and part of the Schengen zone, which helped to guarantee and foster stability, prosperity.

Hungary has a transitional economy, with a well-developed service sector, export-oriented industry and highly developed agriculture. In 2023, the Hungarian economy continued to stagnate, supporting the general trend of the EU countries. Despite this, the Hungarian forint strengthened in 2023 against the dollar and the euro. The real estate market is developing dynamically, the government is taking measures to develop an affordable housing program for Hungarians, reducing mortgage rates and developing targeted programs, hoping thereby to stimulate new construction. Long-term and short-term rentals are in high demand due to the tourist influx, as well as the problem of buying the finished housing for Hungarians. Real estate in Hungary is rather affordable. Businessmen make investments confidently with the expectation of a reasonable return on it.
