Sibenik Real Estate & Area Info

Sibenik real estate continues to be popular with foreign buyers. It is only an hour from Split and property prices in Sibenik are generally a little bit cheaper. Sibenik old town, like many of the coastal towns in Croatia, consists of old stone houses, nestled into the hillside, in a picturesque bay overlooking the sea and nearby islands. The area includes over two hundred islands and reefs of varying sizes, as well as two national parks, Kornati and Krka. It has good connections with other Croatian and Dalmatian cities via the A1 motorway and Adriatic highway coastal road. Sibenik itself does not have an airport, but is serviced by two airports, Zadar airport in the north and Split International Airport in the south. Both are within an hour’s drive, which makes Sibenik a viable weekend break destination, making it popular with people considering buying property in Sibenik.

There is a wide variety of real estate in Sibenik available to foreign property buyers, although apartment sales still dominate the market. In the centre of Sibenik you will find old stone houses for sale, either stand alone or divided into apartments. The same goes for the charming little island of Prvic a few minutes by boat from Sibenik or Vodice. To the north in Tribunj and Vodice you will find apartments for sale, houses for renovation and we are starting to see developers building modern villas with swimming pools. Further north you will find the island of Murter. Property on Murter is popular, although it is quite hard to find good properties due to low levels of supply especially property near the sea.

To the south of Sibenik you will find Brodarica, the island of Krapanj and Zaboric. Here you can find properties next to the sea at more competitive prices. Zaboric is 15 minutes from Sibenik and is a small seaside village below the main road. It is a popular place to buy real estate, because it is quiet and relaxed but close enough to Sibenik if you want entertainment and nightlife. You can find houses and apartments for sale in Zaboric and also land plots to build your own dream property. Further south you will find Grebastica and Primosten. Primosten is by far the most expensive area, especially properties in Primosten that are below the main coastal road looking out to sea. Sibenik property prices are often dependent on micro location conditions. Of importance is their position and proximity to the sea and coastal road. In general Sibenik real estate prices are a little lower than further south, although villas, houses, apartments or building land close the sea and in prime position are being offered at similar prices.
