Property prices in Budapest still cheap in regional comparison
Property prices in Budapest rose about 20% year-on-year in the third quarter of 2018, but are still well under prices in the capitals of neighboring countries, data compiled by realtor Duna House show, Hungarian news agency MTI reported.
Properties located in the capitalʼs central Districts 5, 6 and 7 now average HUF 705,000 per square meter, but properties closest to the center are going for more than HUF 900,000 per sqm, Duna House said.
