However, the purchaser needs an approval from the foreign ministry in Zagreb. The procedure takes normally about three to six months. If a foreign person forms a Croatian company, he will be regarded as a native legal person that can purchase property without the approval by the foreign ministry. The forming of a limited Croatian company, a d.o.o, requires a basic capital of 2.500 Euro. It takes about a month to register the company. A property tax is payable with any purchase, sale, or exchange of real estate. The tax is five percent and is payable by the purchaser. Property agents charge the purchaser about 3 to 3.5 percent of the total price of the property. Legal fees and stamp duty are about 1.5 percent of the total sum. Conversion Example: Project Villa Salambati The Villa Salambati was beautifully converted in 2002-2003 with much attention to details from our architect Dean Peteh and the interior designer Predrag Spasojevic. An old ruin was converted into an exclusive stone villa with pool and guest house. General information Croatia shines with 1.800 km coastline, 1.185 islands, crystal clear water, 2.700 hours of sunshine per year and picturesque cities with rich cultural heritage. Especially Istria which is called the new Tuscany is of incredible beauty. Istria's coastal region melts land and sea in the shape of sweet little bays, in front islands, and in between picturesque old towns that go wide into the sea. But also the hilly countryside with its various vineyards is of magnificent beauty. In respect to environmental care is the Adriatic state far in front of other European destinations. A study from Yale and Columbia University ranked Croatia in the "Environmental Sustainability Index 2002" on the excellent place twelve. Croatia was far before other Mediterranean countries like Spain (place 44), Greece (place 60), or Italy (place 84). The leisure activities are without limit in Croatia. Its wonderful coast, the innumerable islands, bays, and beaches make the country a sailor's paradise: there are 47 marinas and 12.500 berths at the moment. Also diving, sport-fishing, tennis, mountain biking, and climbing is possible. Furthermore, Croatia will be the next golf destination in Europe. At the moment there are more than 9 golf courses in the planning stage in Istria alone. The Istrian cuisine is a mixture of different cultures. Especially Hungarian and Austrian inland, and Italian and Mediterranean in the coastal region. There is delicious oysters, lobsters, mussels, and prawns. In the Mirna valley in Istria grows also excellent truffle which is one of the best in the world. Last but not least is the region around Istria an ideal property investment spot. Yearly price increases of 25-30% were registered in the last three years. Moreover, Croatia is an EU candidate for 2007 which will further boost property prices significantly. How to get there There are two international airports: One in Triest (Italy) about 80 km, and the other one in Pula (Croatia). The Sunday Times, October 09, 2005 Escape: Croatia has the taste of old Tuscany The architecture, landscape and truffles on every menu will remind you of Italy, but Istria has a brand of hospitality all of its own, says Claire Prentice The first sip of Romano's raki makes the hairs in my nose prickle. By the second my eyes have filled with tears and my throat is on fire. My host looks on approvingly as Rina, his wife, pushes over a plate of freshly baked cake. I have only been in Istria a few hours and already I'm being treated as one of the family. The raki, flavoured with honey but still not sweet enough to take the sting out of the pure alcohol, is just one of the treats that Romano has in store. He also makes his own wine from the vineyards that surround the house. You can drink endless amounts of it and because it is organic, he promises, you will never get a hangover. With that he uncorks a bottle and begins to pour. Hospitality like Romano and Rina's is something of an Istrian trademark. While their more southerly neighbours can be famously standoffish, the people of Istria are natural hosts. It's a characteristic that is slowly beginning to bear fruit for the Istrian tourist industry. Croatia has made great progress since the war of the early 1990s, as seen last week when the country began EU membership talks. But while British tourists have started flocking back to Dubrovnik, Hvar and Split, so far they have been slow to rediscover the northern peninsula of Istria, even though it emerged from the war unscathed. Istria's beach resorts are popular with Germans, Italians, Austrians and Scandinavians, but inland it is still possible to find towns and villages entirely free of foreigners. The region doesn't boast the breathtaking rockscapes and rugged views of Dubrovnik and the south; instead Istria's charms are more subtle. With its crumbling pastel buildings, rolling hills and vineyard-covered valleys, it is easy to see why Istria has earned the title of "Croatia's Tuscany", but it is much more than a poor man's Italy. And nowhere in the region is more than a couple of hours' drive away. Whether or not it is down to Romero's organic grapes I couldn't say, but the next morning I wake at the crack of dawn. A short drive inland leads me to Hum, which boasts of being the smallest town in the world, with fewer than 20 residents inside its 11th-century fortress walls. It lies at the foot of a small winding gravel road known as the Glagolitic Alley, a sculpture trail created in the 1970s to celebrate the Glagolitic script, the precursor to Cyrillic. From the graveyard, which provides a fascinating social history of the town, there are spectacular views of the valley below. A farmer appears from one of the ramshackle stone buildings across the road and walks down the hill to tend to his goats, which are grazing at the edge of the vineyards, stepping over pumpkins growing on the ground. It is an idyllic image and, keen not to have it spoilt, I climb into the car and drive further inland to Motovun. Motovun can thank an Italian soldier stationed near here during the first world war for its current prosperity. Homesick, he noted how similar the landscape was to his native Tuscany and, acting on a hunch, he went digging for truffles. Now the knobbly white fungus is for sale in every tourist shop and on menus across the country. Unfortunately, that means that Motovun is besieged on a daily basis. Its pretty little town square, palatial 15th- and 16th-century buildings and narrow pedestrian streets are mine to enjoy alone for all of 10 minutes. Then suddenly hordes of tourists appear, so it is time to move on. Truffles are merely the start of the cultural and natural connections between Istria and Italy. When Istria became part of Yugoslavia at the end of the second world war, about 350,000 ethnic Italians left, but many stayed on and their influence is evident everywhere - from the pizza, pasta and truffles on all the menus to the Venetian architecture, the Italian road signs and the fact that most Istrians still speak fluent Italian. A little further northwest is Groznjan. One of the towns left deserted after the second world war by fleeing Italians and by young people who moved to the cities to find work, it has had a renaissance in recent years. The local authorities gave the empty homes and shop units to writers and artists for little or no rent, transforming the town into a cultural colony, with every second doorway leading to an artist's studio. Later that day Giovanni, a local farmer's son of Italian descent, walks past Rina's house with his dog and, keen to practise his English, stops for a chat. With communism gone many of the young people who left for the cities are returning to Istria's towns and villages and setting up businesses, many in tourism. But Giovanni explains that although he loves the countryside where he grew up, there is little for him here in Ruzici, which, if it had a few more houses, might qualify as a hamlet. He is home for the holidays from university in Pula, Istria's only city, where he is studying economics. There is not much demand for economists in a country with little industry. "When I finish I will get a job in the tourist industry like everyone else," he says with a shrug. Few visitors leave Istria without a trip to the Brijuni Islands, once the private playground of Tito. Tito spent six months of the year here and played host to world leaders and celebrities including Sophia Loren, Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. They didn't come empty-handed. Gandhi brought two elephants and a holy cow. Others brought gifts of giraffes, llamas, zebras and elephants. The animals still living are in the Brijuni Safari Park, the rest have been stuffed and are displayed in a museum. The Opatija Riviera, which stretches for more than 25 miles, has been popular since the 19th century. Mahler, Chehkov, Puccini and a host of European politicians came here to see and be seen and the town still has an air of flashy sophistication. Although it has seen better days, Opatija, with its seven-mile-long promenade and its candy-coloured fin de siècle architecture, is still one of the prettiest towns in Istria. While the sun-worshippers fill the rocky outcrops and small coves, the pavement cafes are full of elderly well-to-do ladies tucking into coffee and gargantuan cakes. A few miles further down the coast lies one of the largest nudist beaches in Europe. But, after my enormous slice of black forest gateau, I don't think I'll be braving it on this trip. + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + Published: 18/11/2005 Source: Investors Chronicle Property Investment Overseas With average rental yields in England falling to 5.87 per cent, and capital growth a sluggish 3.3 per cent a year it's hardly surprising that a quarter of a million Brits have bought a second home abroad. According to a recent article published in the Investors Chronicle, in the last five years there has been a 20 per cent increase in Brits investing in property abroad, and the 'fly-to-let' trend is speeding up. Traditionally, the big attractions for people buying outside the UK have been a change of lifestyle, a cheaper cost of living and a warmer, drier climate. Now, though, a significant proportion of buyers are pure investors, or buyers who plan to rent out the property at certain times of the year, and use it themselves at others. Returns have been healthy, too, with average capital growth of between 10 and 20 per cent a year - depending on the country. In some markets, you can buy a house for a fraction of the equivalent purchase price in the UK - so it's no surprise that first-time buyers locked out of the UK market have been spearheading the push overseas. + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + A little piece of St Tropez on the Adriatic Published: November 11 2005 Financial Times When Donna and Mark McGregor decided to relocate from the UK, they rented a camper van and travelled through Europe in search of a new home. They visited Belgium and Luxembourg, Germany and Austria, Slovenia and Croatia. And, finally, in the latter country's northern Istria region, they found the perfect property: a sound stone shell primed for renovation, set on a plot of hazelnut, palm and cherry trees. "We ended up making a snap decision," Donna explains. "Its potential and stunning surroundings had an immediate impact on us." Dubrovnik, Split and surrounding areas may be better known Croatian destinations across Europe, but Istria's rural retreats, historic delights and beach hot spots have long been popular with holidaymakers and second-home buyers within the region. For most, the first attraction is the undeveloped interior landscape: a lattice of wine roads traversing rolling green hills and red clay vineyards brokern up occasionally by hilltop towns peaked by ancient church spires. Stalls along the roads and village markets bustle with local produce. Old stone farmhouses have painted wooden shutters, vine-clad overhangs and wood-stacks flanking the walls. Hum, which claims to be the smallest town in the world, sums up Istria's essence of quaint countryside havens and old customs. But Istria also includes the livelier historic towns of Rovinj, Porec, Pula and Labin along the coast, where chic bars and cafés overlook picturesque harbours and boutiques and galleries line cobbled streets. The buildings are invariably painted in pastel colours and their balconies are festooned with flowered balconies; again, it feels like Italy, which is perhaps appropriate give that Rovinj is a one-hour speed boat ride away from Venice. Other excitements include the Briono Polo Club tournament, which was held in the archipelago of Brijuni Islands this past July; an annual international film festival in the medieval hilltop town of Motovun, in the heart of truffle terrain, centred around the Roman amphitheatre at Pula; and a host of smaller arts festivals, sailing regattas and summer concerts. Travel is also easy, with five airports located in Ljubljana, Zagreb, Pula and Trieste, and well-maintained roads. But the main factor drawing homebuyers to Istria is its reasonable prices. The McGregors, who sold their UK home for £185,000, paid 450,000 kuna (£41,000) for their 1,200 sq metre property 15km from the tourist hub of Porec, leaving them plenty of money to spend on building work. For 2.5m kuna, one can buy the whole of Ravnici, a 13,000 sq metre "village" located in a hillside position deep in the Istrian countryside, five minutes from Hum and 20 minutes from the coastal resort of Opatija. It includes an ensemble of four stone houses with approximately 800 sq metres of living space, electricity, water and an access road. New-build homes are also available and popular due to tight regulations for renovation, particularly for properties protected by the Ministry of Culture. In coastal Prementura, 11km from Pula, a one- or two-bedroom apartment in a modern complex 10 minutes' walk from town is a likely candidate for those beach lovers and would cost around 500,000 kuna. Prices are higher for more centrally located properties. In Kastelir, a village near both Porec and Novigrad, 2m kuna will buy a two-bedroom apartment with a separate annexe in a small complex with a communal pool and landscaped grounds. In Matulini, located between Rovinj and Porec, a two-bedroom detached villa designed with traditional Istrian features might go for 1.5m kuna. The market has also expanded to include more luxurious offerings in recent years, with solid timber beams, underfloor heating and designer fixtures inside and a private pool outside, priced up to 3.5m kuna. The McGregors, who are 24 and 30, started looking in Croatia at new-build apartments on the coast, but as with their country search, swiftly changed course. "With little ones to come, a house seemed like a more practical option for the future," Donna says. Part of their reason for moving from West Lothian was to find a better environment in which to raise children and to escape their "dull weekly routine", Mark adds. "And we're both looking forward to putting our creative skills to good use." They haven't sold their van yet, however. "The main building was originally an animal shelter and though the new-build section attached is just about habitable with a sink and cooker for the kitchen, it wouldn't be ideal for any long period of time," Mark says. "So it's the camping life for a while yet we suspect." + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + Published: 04/10/2005 Source: The Telegraph Croatia opens talks on EU membership The European Union opened talks with Croatia after the United Nations war crimes tribunal's chief prosecutor said the government was co-operating with efforts to bring a suspect to trial. As reported by The Telegraph, the EU froze talks with Croatia that were to start in March over its failure to co-operate with the tribunal in The Hague which indicted former Croat general Ante Gotovina for wartime atrocities against Serbs. EU foreign ministers said in a statement that the talks could open now that "Croatia had met the outstanding condition of accession negotiations".

Croatian officials said they hoped their country could join the EU in 2009. + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + Times August 2004: "Where the villa living is easy" Annabel Thorpe finds quality self-catering properties all the rage on Croatia's Istrian peninsula. … British are discovering that inland Istria combines a landscape of lush green hills and honey-coloured hilltop towns reminiscent of Umbria, and with the kind of tranquillity you'd only find in Tuscany on a rainy day in February. …Villas, dilapidated cottages, crumbling farmhouses; all are changing hands, as British buyers compete with returning Croatians to own their own piece of the Istrian idyll. … Their newly built villa, Casteletto Parenzana, was only finished in June and they have already had their first guests. "There is nowhere else in Europe so peaceful," says Dorina. "At night we just sit out and watch the stars; although we have been back from England for some time, we still can't believe the night skies." Evenings at Parenzana are glorious; the heat of the day fades, the sun slips slowly behind khaki hills and the sky floods fuschia pink. Istrian earth is lush and fertile, and fields of crops stretch between clusters of toffee-coloured cottages. Silent hamlets freckle the countryside; some have only one or two inhabitants, elderly now, sons and lovers long gone, some to the war, some to work on the busy coastal strip. … The verdant hills that roll through Istria are scattered with towns; Venetian Motovun, Groznjan with its artists' community, Oprtalj with its 17th-century loggia and tiny medieval streets winding up to the peak. The villages may play host to tourist coaches by day, but nothing on the scale of Provence or Tuscany; by late afternoon they have settled back into a peaceful languor, with only the odd quiet bar, serving menestra (an Istrian take on minestrone soup) and cevapcici (meatballs) to locals and a few stray tourists. …"Soft tourism" is a suitably gentle term for the development taking place in Istria; a wine route has sprung up, truffle-hunting trips are on offer, and most hilltop towns hold festivals in the summer, but all are low-key initiatives; the main attraction is the beauty and simplicity of the region. "We had no idea it would be so gorgeous," Jane Shirley told me, who was staying in a villa called Captain Morgan's with her husband, Paul, and four children. "We've been to Porec, but it was like any other beach resort. Up here it's unique; so quiet and everyone in the village so friendly. We chose Istria because it was that bit cheaper than Spain or Italy, but the villa is more luxurious than anything we've rented before." The properties in Istria are a good metaphor for the region; spacious, beautiful, individual, of a far higher standard than you might expect. Istria as a whole is a surprise; "Where are all the battered Fiats?" asked my copilot Ali, as we drove past gleaming BMWs and four-wheel drives. Everywhere felt upbeat, a well-to-do country absorbing tourism into everyday life. + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + Sunday Times February 2004: "Croatia rediscovered" ... Better sailing than Turkey, islands to rival those of Greece, and a cuisine to match Italy's: it's the hot spot that came in from the cold. …Ask anyone: Croatia is the hottest destination in the Med this summer. The Dalmatian coast, they will tell you, with its close-hauled constellation of 1,000 islands, is the "new Riviera"; while the Istrian peninsula, with its Italian looks and flavours, is "the new Tuscany". ... In the 1980s, half a million of us came here to play and almost universally loved it, but during the civil war, we shifted to Spain, Greece and Turkey- even though most of Croatia was never touched by the conflict.

During this time, various residential and commercial buildings were constructed mainly in the South, but also in North and East Germany. The residential developments are mostly in exclusive suburbs such as Munich-Harlaching and Munich-Solln. Commercial buildings are in the Munich city centre. The average yearly revenues during this period were about 25-30 million Euros. Some of the properties are still today family owned. Present In 2003 Dussmann homes, a Croatian Limited company (d.o.o), was formed. The company is involved in the development of holiday homes in Croatia. The developments are build with highest German standards. The area around Istria, which property experts predict to be the new holiday homes hot spot in Europe, is main focus of the company. Dussmann homes restores traditional Istrian stone houses in the countryside, as well as ancient palaces in old towns along the coast. The company also develops new apartments and villas in the costal region and at golf courses.

Im Ranking des "Enviornmental Sustainability Index 2002" (ESI) erreichte Kroatien den hervorragenden Platz zwölf. Mit dieser Platzierung liegt Kroatien weit vor anderen Mittelmeerländern wie Spanien (Platz 44), Griechenland (Platz 60) oder Italien (Platz 84). Die Freizeitmöglichkeiten sind in Kroatien unbegrenzt. Mit seiner traumhaften Küste, den unzähligen Inseln, Buchten und Stränden ist das Land für Segler ein Paradies: 47 Yachthäfen und 12.500 Liegeplätze gibt es momentan. Tauchen, Sportfischen, Tennis, Mountain Biking und Klettern bieten sich an. Darüber hinaus ist Istrien dabei die nächste Golf-Destination in Europa zu werden. Zurzeit sind alleine 9 Golfplätze in Istrien in Planung. Die istrische Küche stellt eine Kombination verschiedener Einflüsse dar, vor allem ungarischer und österreichischer Traditionen im Landesinneren sowie italienischer und mediterraner im Küstengebiet. Es gibt herrliche Austern, Hummer, Muscheln und Langusten. Im Mirna-Tal in Istrien wächst zudem köstlich-kostbarer weißer Trüffel, der zu den besten der Welt zählt. Letztlich ist zu sagen dass sich das Gebiet um Istrien als idealer Immobilieninvestment- Standort darstellt. Jährliche Preissteigerungen von ca. 25-30 % wurden in den letzten drei Jahren registriert. Darüber hinaus ist Kroatien EU Beitrittskandidat für 2007 was den Immobilien-Preisen sicherlich nochmals einen deutlichen Schub geben wird. Anreise Von München nach Istrien ca. 600 km, Wien - Istrien ca. 550 km und von Mailand ca. 450km. Die nächsten internationalen Flughäfen befinden sich in Triest (Italien) ca. 80 km und Pula (Kroatien).

In dieser Zeit wurden vor allem im süddeutschen Raum, aber auch vereinzelt in Nord- und Ostdeutschland zahlreiche Wohnhäuser und Gewerbeobjekte errichtet. Die Bauvorhaben befinden sich meist in exponierten Lagen, wie z.B. in München-Harlaching und München-Solln. Gewerbeimmobilien liegen in der Münchner Innenstadt. Die durchschnittlichen Jahresumsätze beliefen sich in dieser Zeit auf ca. 25-30 Millionen Euro. Teile der Immobilien befinden sich noch heute in Eigenbesitz. Gegenwart 2003 wurde die Firma Dussmann homes, eine kroatische GmbH (d.o.o) gegründet. Gegenstand der Firma ist die Entwicklung von Ferienimmobilien in Kroatien. Die Bauvorhaben werden in höchster deutscher Bauqualität errichtet. Die Gegend um Istrien, die unter Immobilien Experten als neuer Ferienimmobilien Hot Spot in Europa gehandelt wird, steht dabei im Vordergrund. Dussmann homes saniert traditionelle istrische Steinhäuser im Landesinneren sowie Stadtpalais in kleinen Fischerorten entlang der Küste. Außerdem befasst sich die Firma mit der Errichtung von Villen und Appartementanlagen in Meeresnähe sowie an Golfplätzen.

Allerdings muss er vom Außenministerium in Zagreb genehmigt werden. Das Verfahren dauert in der Regel drei bis sechs Monate. Wenn eine ausländische Person eine kroatische Gesellschaft gründet, wird diese als einheimische juristische Person angesehen, die ohne Genehmigung vom Außenministerium Immobilien erwerben kann. Die Gründung einer kroatischen GmbH, einer d.o.o, verlangt ein Mindestkapital von 2.500 Euro. Die Gründung dauert etwa ein Monat. Eine Immobiliensteuer ist bei jedem Verkauf, Tausch und jedem anderen Erwerb von Immobilien zu zahlen. Sie beträgt fünf Prozent und ist vom Käufer zu tragen. Als Maklerprovision werden üblicherweise 3 bis 3.5 Prozent des Kaufpreises gezahlt, die der Käufer leisten muss. Die Kosten für Kaufvertrag, Notar, Genehmigung und Grundbucheintragung liegen bei etwa 1,5 Prozent der Kaufsumme. Restaurations Beispiel: Projekt Villa Salambati Die Villa Salambati wurde 2002-2003 mit sehr viel Liebe zum Detail von unserem Architekten Dean Peteh und dem Interior Designer Predrag Spasojevic renoviert. Aus einer alten Ruine ist eine exklusive Natursteinvilla mit Pool und Gästehaus entstanden. pdf pdf pdf
