Why is this house so cheap? compared with other houses in Romania, I hear you say, well the reason is simple, as I am fully aware of the present “economic climate” and I wish to sell, it is not a “scam” in any way, you will not “pay a penny” until you have had the deeds fully checked with a lawyer to your own satisfaction, the deeds for this house are “watertight” 

One important point is that you are purchasing a property here in Romania, that benefits from the new form of title deeds, this property has been officially measured and fully registered in the land office with myself as the sole owner, you are not purchasing a property that still requires to be officially registered, as many do, often with several owners, with all the uncertainty involved with such a purchase. In this case, as I have the full documentation necessary, you are able to purchase the property right away, giving you peace of mind.

Since January 2013 the law has been changed,  all EU citizens are now allowed to own houses and land in Romania without the need to set up a Company, they can purchase directly in their own name.

If you are in the position to take advantage of the current “property market” this holiday home presents an excellent investment opportunity for the future.

This renovated traditional Romanian house sits on the edge of the village of Casota, the “best side“ which means that it benefits from an uninterrupted view of the setting sun in those wonderful long sunny dayshere in Romania, as you will see anywhere on the internet, the climate here is excellent!

The house has a large garden, plenty of room for a swimming pool etc, benefiting from the sun all day. With the investment of a swimming pool, the house would have a good holiday rental return. In addition to the large garden, there is a small field attached which is included in the sale. 

The “running costs” on any holiday home, is something to be considered, that is the taxes due on the house and land each year, locally, every country has them, well this house, last year 50 Euros, yes actually less than 50 Euros. 

Water is from my own well, although shortly to be connected to mains water supply.

Sewage is by septic tank, in the future there will be mains sewage.

There is a rubbish collection service.

Public Gas supply is available, but not installed.

TV, fixed telephone with an option of cheap international calls, and good internet connection, wifi, which means you can sit in the garden with your laptop. The TV has many films, series etc in English, with Romanian subtitles.

The village has 2 general shops and there is a kindergarten for small children and a primary school about a mile away

Cheap international flights to Bucharest the Capital, an hours drive away.

Something that may be of interest, when I sell this house, I will be remaining in the village, I am not leaving, so naturally I will be on hand to “help out” if it is to be a holiday home, I can recommend someone trustworthy to look after it, also help with the garden in general, maybe grow some real vegetables! for your holiday, things like that, because I know only too well arriving in a foreign country, how difficult things can be.

The cost of living in Romania is by EU standards very cheap indeed, living here in Casota, you can buy so much local produce, produced organically, from fresh cheese, milk and eggs, to so many different vegetables grown here in the season.
