Demand for real estate is growing, which leads to an increase in the cost per square meter. Investors are increasing their presence in the country, and first of all they are attracted by the capital. Warsaw is one of the most developed cities in Central and Eastern Europe. Many international companies have their offices here, and large-scale projects from various fields are being implemented. Therefore, housing and commercial real estate of the capital of Poland is in demand among both citizens and foreigners.
