 The Law on Giving in Payment is making murky waters  on Romanian real estate market and is creating powerful pro and against camps every day more vocal, but unfortunately less and less based on economical date and more on sentimental reasons.

In order to address this fundamental issue: what will be the impact on commissioning law on real estate market? The Institute of International Relations and Economic Cooperation organized on 29 February 2016, the annual conference dedicated to the housing market in Romania.


In the opening remarks of the conference Prof. Dr. Anton Caragea explained the importance of real estate market:

We must comprehend the fundamental truth that : the real estate market is not dedicated to the big business sharks, to the speculators or to hit and run economic actors, but the real aim of this market must be to offer housing to those in need not profit to real estate moguls.


Or this is exactly the hitting point of the hammer of the law, the great real estate speculators, who aim at taking profit after profit, that are speculating on housing, they will be the victims, while the persons in search of house for living, for building a family, they will be in advantage.


Is normal that the prices will abruptly go down, and this is a perfect solution for the real estate market because the prices must not be dictated by speculators and riff raffs but by the real economy and this is demanding a reduction in prices by 50%. This will exactly the outcome of the Giving in Payment Law: will bring normality on housing market.


The real image of Romanian housing market: old, shabby houses, energy deficient and costly.

On the venue of the conference where brought together: real estate agents, bankers, property experts and evaluators, brokers and real estate funds from Romania and EU and economists.

The debates started with the highlights of the latest evolution`s and drop in prices on real estate market in Romania during 2015, the most prominent bankruptcies in the real estate developers and the factor leading to a continuing devaluation of the market prices for 2016.


During last year, according to the figures presented on the conference, the average price reduction was around 15%, as a medium calculation, with highest mark for villas and houses going towards a 25% reductions, one of the most serious drop since the economic crisis hit Romania.

Despite this optimist signs of price reductions, all the experts underlined the fact that: prices are a long way to go before they reach the normal prices range.

 2016 will mark new prices reductions until the real estate will register a 50% decrease from present day levels.

The tendencies on the market are putting the correct price around 200 Euro per square meter, the just price for Romanian market.

A highly interesting statistic proved that: who signed a contract last year to buy a propriety has already lost 20% of his investment.

New significant drops in prices (around 50% of present day marks) are just the tip of the iceberg and will have to continue in the next period, if there is to be a chance for the market to be stabilized and the investment in real estate to become one more time attractive and efficient.

From an initial value of 1.200/1.300 euro per build square meter, the prices have dropped by the year-end, towards 650-450 euro per constructed square meter, but are a long way to go until normal prices, requested by the market, will come back on Romanian real estate.


The real estate market will continue the downward spiral in 2016, accelerated by the economic crisis and low-income, with the greatest devaluation registered for the rural based property and on secondary or vacation house market and provincial cities where prices will decrease by 80% while the depreciation will rich figures of around 40% to 50% on premium real estate objectives in Bucharest areas.

The prices are expected to fall below 200-250 euro per constructed/ square meter in prime areas of Bucharest real estate.

 imobiliarele sunt in faliment

The housing market prices have one direction: Down and quickly !

The drop in prices is driven by the ongoing banking crisis, the powerful economic crisis, the reduction of incomes, the shrinking in number of banking institutions available to offer real estate loans, the spike in banking interest rates, dramatic decrees in investment, drastic reduction in real income for majority of Romanians, unfavorable economic prognosis, ongoing economic crisis and also decrees in foreign investments and in revenues from Romanian working abroad etc.

To this long list of negative trends we can add the 120.000 new flats, houses and villas that will be placed on the market by the banks in the foreclosure process.

They were expected to flood the market from 2015, but their apparition was bogged down by law complication and lawsuits but eventually they will start emerge from banks portfolios on the market bringing severe corrections to the prices.

This new properties will be presented on the market with reduction`s in prices ranging from 50% to 25% percent from the initial announced price.


The banks presented list of property with starting prices ranging from 15.000 to 20.000 euro for one room flat, to 25.000 euro per two rooms flat and around 35.000 euro for three room flats.

The mansions and villas are sold at pricing ranging from 35-40.000 euro per 200 squared meter’s villas in high luxury areas and as low as 20-30.000 euro in secondary areas.

The prices for land in Bucharest area already dropped with 50% in 2014 and will furthermore decrease with 50% this year, reaching finally the 50 euro per square meter in central areas of Bucharest, a price that will allow re-emergence of developers on the market on the next years.

On the list of economic developments, on the real estate market, that are impacting downwards the prices were highlighted: a drop in population real income by 30% in 2014/2015, this had impacted drastic the number of real estate buyers, banking system is engulfed in crisis and choked by low-commercial value properties; the average real interest for real estate credit is around 20% which is making the cost of real estate credits unsustainable.

We can safely conclude that: taking a real estate loan in this period is the path towards bankruptcy and foreclosure for 90% of the clients.

Borrowing today ! Bankrupt tomorrow! was the bitter joke of the bankers, which confessed that banking system is in a vicious circle, until the prices will reach the 200 euro per square meter mark, until this moment the loan market is blocked.


2016 is presenting a market under siege with offers and with no buyers interested.

This year will enter on the market like a flood: over 50.000 hectares of prime land and a new stock of 3.000 villas and mansions in areas as: Colentina, Bucurestii Noi, Pipera, Baneasa, Damaroaia etc.

This avalanche of real estate`s will be sold on the market at prices below 50.000 euro per property and will push toward collapse the luxury real estate market.

Another interesting factor that emerged from discussion was the fact that: this year the offers are reaching 50% from the asking prices, while the norm on the market was a difference between 10 to 15% but today the gap has go down to at 50% of the initially estimated price.


Chief Economist Mihail Raceanu underlined again and again the fundamental truth that: real estate market cannot operate outside the negative climate of Romanian and EU economy.

The real estate market is intricately connected with the decrease of average wage and real income per person and the economy status.

 The price per square meter, in prime real estate areas, cannot be over medium salary value by more than two times.

As in Romania the salary is around 150 euro monthly, the price per square meter cannot exceed more than 300 euro, as a matter of economic sanity.

It a clear axiom of economic sustainability, you are breaking it; you go out of business, concluded Mihail Raceanu.

The market will restart if we will reach the financial comfort zone around 200-300 euro’s per square meter.

This is the hard to swallow truth: who is not cutting rapidly the prices remains excluded from the market.


We have entered now in the eight year of the housing crisis and we have to logically be prepared for another eight year for dropping prices as normality on the market is the United States expert’s opinion.

Crisis is today economic normality!

The developers in the areas of villas and houses concluded that this area will continued to be severely hit with drastic reduction of prices during 2016.

The main reason is the fact that: economic crisis had dramatically reduced the number of interested players for buying this type of real estate, corroborating this with decreasing rental market and drastic reduction in number of companies interested to rent such large spaces for offices and the growing expenses to maintain such a property, had gone up impressively, all is worsening the perspective for this type of properties.

The new taxes and fiscal obligations are hitting hard on the owners of luxury estates and the maintenance cost are rising rapidly on gas and heating tabs.

This type of properties is the most vulnerable for banking foreclosures and sell on the market at prices below 50.000 euro such villas can help the banks to cut their losses.

During this year areas such as: Mosilor, Pipera, Baneasa, Tunari, still offer the possibility to be sold around 50.000 euro, the rest of the areas of south and east of the capital (Damaroaia, Berceni, Timpuri Noi, Colentina), are completely unfit for marketing and selling because of the inexistence of interested buyers.

The portrait of housing buyer: bankrupt and on the street!


During 2015 the same order is playing in the real estate market: you bought, you lost!

From the moment that you ink the deal, the real value of your house has gone down by 20% and will continue to dwindle.

Understanding the real estate market evident lessons is a major step: the internal market with a dwindling number of buyers and unpredictable income is blocking any major acquisitions and foreign investors are NOT coming to the market.

Nothing will change until the prices are reaching the 200 euro mark per square meter.

No investment in Romania is possible at current prices of 400-500 euro per square meter as long as similar opportunities are to be found in Austria, Hungary, Greece, Turkey or Bulgaria but at prices below 100 euro.

  In this moment any buyer of Romanian properties will lose big and heavy, concluded the panel of experts present at the conference.

All the hopes are concentrating on the rapid implementation of the New Fiscal Code of Romania that will force by huge taxes and levies the owner to rapidly sale their property or face foreclosures.

Thus will bring the prices to the reality of 200 euro target of real estate market.

The Law of Giving in Payment in marking a step in the right direction towards bringing equilibrium of the real estate market and signaling that the time of housing speculators in rapidly nearing his end.

Legea Darii in Plata agita piata imobiliara si creaza curente pro si contra tot mai marcante, din nefericire ambele putin substantiate pe date economice si mai mult pe luari de pozitie sentimentale.

Tocmai pentru a adresa aceasta problema fundamentala: care va fi impactul initiativei legislative asupra pietei imobiliare? Institutul de Relatii Internationale si Cooperare Economica a organizat in 29 februarie 2016 conferinta anuala dedicata pietei imobiliare din Romania.


 Trebuie inteles adevarul fundamental ca piata imobiliara nu trebuie sa fie o piata dedicata marilor afaceri, tunurilor si excrocheriilor, obiectivul normal al acestei piete este sa ofere locuinte celor care au nevoie de ele.

Legea Darii in Plata

Ori exact aici loveste legea darii in plata, in marii exploatatori imobiliari, in cei care vor sa faca profit de la o luna la alta, in cei care speculeza si in schimb ii va readuce in piata pe cei care au nevoie de o casa.

Normal ca preturile vor scadea drastic, si este perfect ca se intampla asa, deoarece preturile nu trebuie stabilite de speculatori ci de economia reala si aceasta cere ca preturile sa fie reduse cu inca 50%.

Si exact asta va face Legea Darii in Plata, va normaliza piata locuintelor a apreciat in deschiderea mesei rotunde Prof. Dr. Anton Caragea.





Tendinta era previzibila inca din toamna lui 2015, cand expertii imobiliari au inteles ca anii 2015 si 2016 vor aduce in sfarsit scaderile de preturi sensibile si radicale, ce permit repunerea in activitate a pietei imobiliare, cu reduceri de 25-30%, pe diverse segmente ale pietei imobliare.

Reducerile vor continua si in aceasta primavara si vara cu valorile obisnuite, de sezon,  de 10-15%.

imobiliarele sunt in faliment

Deja in ianuarie si februarie 2016 au existat reduceri sensibile ale preturilor ceea ce arata o tendinta de normalizare a pietii si de racordare la posibilitatile economice ale clientilor, dar mai este nevoie de inca trei-patru ani de scaderi similare pentru a se obtine preturile normale, au apreciati toti expertii prezenti.

Ca atare anul 2016 va aduce noi scaderi marcante de preturi, iar reducerile in sectorul imobiliar vor fi de pana la jumatate din actualele preturi.

Tendinta este aceeasi: piata sa se stabilizeze la cc.200 de euro metro patrat construit si investitia imobiliara sa redevina atractiva pentru cumparatori.

O statistica interesanta a aratat ca cine a cumparat anul trecut o proprietate a pierdut deja 20% din valoare.

Scaderea de valoare, de la 1.200/1.300 de euro pe metrul patrat construit, la 650-450 de euro, nu reprezinta decat un inceput, timid, al normalizarii pietii proprietatilor imobiliare romanesti.




Evolutia pietei imobiliare in 2016 va fi in continuare una negativa, mult accelerata de: agravarea crizei economice la nivel european si mondial, reducerea economiei romanesti si in acest an, piedicile in fata creditarii, fiscalitatea ridicata, prognozele economice negative.

La acestea se mai adauga: cresterea impozitelor pe teren si proprietati cu peste 60% prevazuta in noul Cod Fiscal, reducerea veniturilor agentilor economici si zona de instabilitate strategica in care se afla Romania, ca urmare a crizei din Ucraina.

Cel mai afectat de scaderile de preturi va fi palierul proprietatilor din zonele periferice si de provincie si zona vilelor de vacanta cu reduceri de cc.50% si o noua scadere de 40%-50% este prognozata pentru zona proprietatilor din Bucuresti.

Pretul trebuie sa ajunga la valoarea considerata normala, de referinta, de cc.200-250 de euro pe metru patrat construit, in zonele de prim rang din Bucuresti.

La fel ca anul trecut, printre factorii responsabili de scaderea preturilor se enumera: criza grava a sistemului bancar, scaderea economiei romanesti din ultimii ani, scaderea sumelor destinate investitiilor, reducerea drastica a veniturilor reale ale populatiei , scaderea masiva a veniturilor romanilor ce muncesc in afara granitelor, fiscalitatea excesiva, etc.

Vor accelera scaderile de preturi si aparitia pe piata a peste 120.000 de apartamente, vile si case ce au fost deja confiscate de banci, ca urmare a dificultatilor financiare ale proprietarilor, in 2015.

Dificultatile legislative si procesele au impiedicat inca bancile sa scoata in vanzare acest urias patrimoniu imobiliar, ce va reduce consistent preturile de pe piata.

Acestea proprietati  vor ajunge pe piata, in cadrul licitatiilor bancare, cu preturi intre 50% si 25% din pretul original, provocand o adevarata avalansa a preturilor in acest an.

Astfel garsonierele situate in zone centrale se vand la sume intre 15.000 si 20.000 de euro, apartamentele cu 2 camere cu 25.000 de euro si cele de trei camere cu 35.000 de euro, vilele peste 200 de metri patrati cu 35-40.000 de euro, cu conditia sa fie in zone centrale- si cu 20.000 de euro in zone perferice.

Preturile terenurilor in Bucuresti, dupa ce au cunoscut deja o scadere cu 50%  in 2015, vor scadea din nou cu inca 50%, la un pret inferior celui de 50 de euro pe metru patrat, in centrul Bucurestiului ceea ce va permite in viitor reinceperea constructiilor la noile preturi reduse.

Au aparut pe piata si trag in jos rapid preturile: peste 50.000 de hectare de terenuri construibile, intra-vilane, la care se adauga si un fond imobiliar de peste 3.000 de vile, in zone precum Colentina, Bucurestii Noi, Pipera, Baneasa, Damaroaia etc.

Locuinte care se vor vinde pe piata cu preturi sub 50.000 de euro si vor impinge si fosta piata de lux a imobiliarelor in prabusire.

Marja de discutie pentru o proprietate a scazut la 50% din pretul afisat, daca pana acum oferta si contra-oferta era de cc.10%-15% din pretul de lista acum contra-oferta ajunge la 50% din pretul cerut initial.

Piata imobiliara e corelata cu scaderea salariului mediu/real pe economie.

Pretul unui metru patrat construit, in zonele centrale, nu poate depasi, de maxim doua ori, valoarea salariului minim pe economie.

Cum in Romania salariul minim  este de 150 de euro, rezulta ca nicio casa nu se poate vinde cu un pret de peste 300 de euro pe metru patrat construit.



Criza imobiliara este aici si va dura, deja avem opt ani de criza si trebuie sa ne adaptam la inca opt ani de criza-considera expertii din Statele Unite.

Portretul investitorului in imobiliare in 2016

Criza a devenit parte a normalitatii economice.

Companiile imobiliare, activand in zona vanzarilor de case si vile, au prognozat ca si in 2016, cele mai drastice scaderi vor avea loc pe piata caselor si a  vilelor.

Principala cauza este criza economica, ce a redus drastic posibilitatile de achizitionare si investitie pe aceasta piata, coroborata cu scaderea chiriilor si reducerea numarului de firme interesate sa inchirieze spatii vaste pentru birouri.

Cresterea masiva a cheltuielilor de incalzire, taxe si impozite la acest tip de proprietati agraveaza situatia parcului imobiliar.

Se adauga faptul ca acest tip de proprietati este cel mai vulnerabil la rambursarea creditelor, executate rapid si vandute la preturi de 30-40.000 de euro, vilele mai pot ajuta bancile sa isi recupereze din pierderi.

 Exista insa si zone precum  precum: sudul si estul capitalei (Damaroaia, Berceni, Timpuri Noi, Colentina), care acum sunt nevandabile, piata fiind inchisa din lipsa de cumparatori.


Scaderile de preturi din primul trimestru al anului 2016 arata ca si in acest an cine cumpara vede valoarea proprietatii sale reduse cu 20% din primul an.

Concluzia e clara: ai cumparat, ai pierdut instantaneu!

Din chiar momentul in care ai semnat actele, valoarea proprietatii tale a scazut cu 15% si va continua sa scada, fara sanse de revenire in viitorul apropiat ( 5-10 ani).

Trebuie sa intelegem doua lectii evidente: pe piata interna numarul redus al cumparatorilor si veniturile instabile blocheaza achizitiile majore, iar investitorii straini pleaca, nu vin in tara noastra.

Romania nu este o piata interesanta pentru investitorii imobiliari deoarece  nu a reusit sa iasa din criza, sa ajunga la preturi normale de 200 de euro.

Pana la reformarea pietei imobiliare, Romania, la preturi de 400 sau 500 de euro metru patrat,nu este atractiva cata vreme un investitor va gasi acelasi oportunitati in Austria, Ungaria, Bulgaria, Turcia sau Grecia la preturi de sub 100 de euro metru patrat construit.

In Romania piata este blocata complet datorita incapacitatii de a intelege evolutiile economice mondiale, cu un fond locativ imbatranit si uzat, cu o populatie saraca si cu o economie in regres, Romania nu este atractiva pentru investitii imobiliare.

Legea Darii in Plata este un pas spre normalizarea pietei si spre intelegerea evidentelor: timpul escrocheriilor imobiliare in Romania a luat sfarsit.

Orasul Iasi este intre primele centre urbane din Romania care incep sa simta apropiindu-se febra alegerilor locale.

Dupa inlaturarea de la putere a grupurilor mafiote locale, ar fi prima data, in ultimele doua decenii, cand cursa electorala de la Iasi se anunta a fi mai corecta si bazata pe rezultate, popularitate si concursuri de proiecte si planuri, mai mult decat pe pomeni electorale si miracole la urne.

Cel putin asa se spera!

In aceste conditii, intre stirile privind primele candidaturi la primaria capitalei Moldovei si-a facut rapid loc noutatea privind rolul determinant al senatorului Ionel Agrigoroaei in aceste alegeri.

Conform interviului din publicatia de prestigiu: BUSINESS ADVISER , interviu publicat sub numele percutant: Am fost vocea oamenilor cinstiti in Parlament!, senatorul Ionel Agrigoroaei lanseaza bomba care poate schimba destinul alegerilor in urbea moldava: cu un scor de incredere de cc.27% in colectivitate Ionel Agrigoroaei conduce clar in topul increderii, putand fi un candidat de succes la primarie sau putand deveni factorul decisiv in a determina care dintre candidati va castiga alegerile.

Dupa manevra de ultima ora de la Bucuresti, unde PNL a schimbat pe ultima suta de metri numele candidatului, multa lume se intreaba daca nu cumva o manevra similara se va petrece si la Iasi unde cel mai popular om politic poate schimba destinele alegerilor irevocabil.

Senatorul Ionel Agrigoroaei obtine record de popularitate in Iasi

Sute de ieseni stau la coada pentru un autograf al Senatorului Ionel Agrigoroaei.

O popularitate dobandita dupa ani de lupte cu grupurile infractionale care au condus Iasiul. Intrebat despre reteta succesului, Ionel Agrigoroaei a raspuns cu modestie: am fost vocea oamenilor cinstiti!


Noua lege a alegerilor locale, bazata pe un singur tur, avantajeza in mod clar candidatii puternici, sau care se bucura de suportul formatorilor de opinie, iar cu 27% intentie de vot si incredere in Iasi, senatorul Ionel Agrigoroaei este fara indoiala cel care poate impinge balanta intr-o parte sau alta.

Aceasta putere, de a decide alegerile in Iasi, nu a scapat atentiei fortelor politice locale care au inceput o campanie activa si asidua de captare a senatorului, intre PSD si PNL fiind o adevarata inclestare pentru a obtine sprijinul in campania electorala a singurului om politic care a avut curajul de a confrunta grupurile infractionale cata vreme acestea se aflau la putere.

Aureolat de lupta cu grupurile  mafiote si presa aservita acestora, senatorul Agrigoroaei trebuie insa sa fie atent la modul in care isi foloseste popularitatea dobandita cu pretul atator suferinte.

Va vrea sa fie el insusi noul primar al Iasiului ? Sau daca nu, trebuie sa sprijine acel nume care va lucra intradevar pentru binele iesenilor, altfel increderea exceptionala de care se bucura se poate evapora rapid.
