It is common to find real estate prices in overcrowded areas higher than in other locations. Due to the simple fact that there is more demand for these real estates. This is because many of these areas are popular destinations for both tourists and first time buyers who are less knowledgeable on Croatia and the real estate market.

However, recently more and more tourist and first time buyers are looking away from these popular areas and are in search for authenticity, privacy and unique experiences. These can be found in the lesser known regions of Croatia.
