DEGRAD IN THE SLOVENIAN MAGAZINE FINANCE
We in Degrad always try to choose a truly special location, the one where we ourselves would like to have a property.
Degrad in the Slovenian magazine Finance on the Slovenians’ interest in Croatian properties
The best-selling business magazine in Slovenia, Finance (Časnik Finance), published on April 17th 2015 an interview with the owner of the company Degrad d.o.o., Denis Šikljan. The topic of the interview was the interest of Slovenian citizens in properties in Croatia, especially on the island of Krk. The most interesting parts of the interview:
What are the benefits of using your own property for vacation?
Having your own property at the sea means having a second home. This property is equipped by customer’s own taste and provided with details that reflects the atmosphere the customer likes the best. It is completely different from staying e.g. in a hotel or in a rented apartment. Besides that, vacation properties are often used for a weekend and therefore the people who own a property by the sea really do come more often to rest on the island of Krk than the very tourists.
What are the major advantages of the island of Krk as a tourist destination for Slovenian citizens?
The Slovenians traditionally love our coast and our sea. Besides its natural beauties, gorgeous beaches and hospitality, Croatia is a very close destination for Slovenians, only a few-hours-drive away, where they can come on both vacations, one-day or weekend trips. Over the years, the island of Krk has become a true Slovenian colony and there the Slovenians really do feel like they are at home.
What type of apartments do Slovenians like the most?
The Slovenians are most interested in apartments with garden, so they usually buy apartments in the ground floor, as well as smaller houses with garden. Most of the Slovenians are buying properties in Malinska because its offer is the largest, but they like the entire island so you can also find them in the Soline bay, Punat and Njivice. As for the choice of the location, they often buy properties in places where they were previously on a vacation or in places recommended by a friend or acquaintance.
How does the company Degrad help customers in choosing a location?
The customers are different. Some customers like to be in downtown and close to all the events, while the others prefer being by the sea and some of them want a peaceful location in the heartland of the island. Therefore, we always love to talk to our customers before we offer them a property. In my opinion, a quality relationship and conversation with the customer is the most important thing not only in brokerage, but also in the sale of our own properties.
Based on which criteria does the company Degrad choose locations for new projects?
We in Degrad always try to choose a truly special location, the one where we ourselves would like to have a property. Our priority is often sea view and proximity of the sea, but it is not a rule. One can find a very good, quality land at the locations more distant from the sea, but it has to be interesting and different from the others.
