The interest in holiday properties in the country is not waning. However, their supply is completely insufficient after almost two years of boom. This, together with the rising price of building materials and labour, is reflected in their high prices. The new project Apartments Albeřice with 11 design units, which is growing in the mountain village of Horní Maršov - Dolní Albeřice in the Krkonoše Mountains, should help to satisfy the enormous demand. The exclusive sale of luxury apartments has now been launched by our real estate agency Luxent - Exclusive Properties! The construction of the low-rise building is expected to start towards the end of this year, with completion planned for the 4th quarter of next year.

Are you dreaming of a new exclusive property near Prague, but at the same time close to nature? Now we have launched the sale of luxury houses in the second phase of the development project Březový háj, which is growing in the village of Předboj. It includes 4 original family villas of 6+kk and 7+kk with gardens, terraces and swimming pools - and their construction has already started! Despite the situation on the real estate market, where, among other things, prices are rising due to a shortage of building materials, interest in the project is huge. Of the sixteen houses in the first phase, only the last one is currently available for purchase. Their implementation will be completed at the turn of this spring and summer, and the entire project with the second phase should be completed in the summer of 2023.

The steep rise in real estate prices, the rising cost of mortgages and the deterioration of their availability, inflation, the rise in prices of building materials and the shortage of building materials - this is the current situation on the real estate market. However, even this does not discourage those interested in luxury housing or a profitable investment. The demand for new flats, especially in Prague, still significantly exceeds the supply. The huge interest is also evidenced by the fact that in many development projects from our portfolio the last units remain to be purchased. In order to at least partially satisfy the "hunger" for luxury new buildings, work is in full swing. Let's take a closer look at the current developments!
