About 60% of the Romanians who purchased homes in 2022 used their own funds, according to a study among real estate specialists conducted by Re/Max., Romania Insider reports.
Meanwhile, 28% bought properties with a mortgage/real estate loan with a down payment of less than 15%, a 21% drop compared to the previous year.
Only 5% of the buyers used a mortgage loan with a down payment of more than 15%, 4% used a co-guarantor loan (of the First House type), and 2% made installments directly to the builder.
In terms of property type, 53% of the transactions in 2022 were for 2-bedroom apartments and 15% for 3-bedroom apartments.
Compared to the year before, the share of 2-bedroom apartments remained roughly the same, but those with 3 rooms have decreased by 24%. Next, but at a great distance, were the studios (9%) and houses in cities and rural areas (each with 8%).
