Farmland next to the sea - everything you need to know

Farmlands located right next to the sea have become a huge hit over the last few years. More and more people are looking for a way to take a break from their hectic everyday life, so they want places that bring peace and an opportunity to relax in nature.

A small house, pristine nature and a fantastic view of the sea are a combination that’s really hard to resist. Therefore, it’s not a big surprise that rural tourism is on the rise and that the number of people who decide for this type of vacation is growing by the year.

The options a good piece of farmland provides, no matter if it’s located in Dalmatia, Istria or Kvarner, are numerous. Apart from the aforementioned house, places like these are ideal if you want to set up a camp, a bar or a restaurant, build a vacation home or even a winery.

In fact, locations like this are perfect if you want to enjoy the traditional dishes of our coast, especially if they allow you to cultivate olives and/or grapes. Homemade olive oil and wine elevate every dish to a whole new level and leave an incredibly positive impression on every guest.

No matter if you want some peace and quiet, if you’re planning to share the experience with your friend, or if you want to start a business, the advantages of owning some farmland are huge. But how to choose the right piece of property? Here are a few tips.

How to correctly choose your piece of farmland next to the sea?

Finding the location that will meet all your demands and fulfil all your wishes should be approached very studiously. It’s very important to define the type of farmland you want to buy and whether or not you want to build anything on it. You cannot build guesthouses or apartment buildings on farmland in Croatia.

Furthermore, you need to decide on the type of location you want. Some people may prefer a place that is completely isolated and far away from prying eyes, whereas others may want to have a small piece of farmland close to a town or a village.

How exactly do you find farmland for sale?

If you know a person who is selling the type of real estate you’re looking for, it’s all pretty straightforward and you just have to contact them if you’re interested. However, in most cases, you need to expand your search.

You can do that in two different ways: you can go through adds yourself or you can hire a real estate agency.

At first, it may seem that doing things yourself is an easier and more affordable solution, but hiring a professional agency has some huge benefits. This will make the whole process a lot faster and easier

In addition, there are some other things worth considering.

Agents are usually experienced professionals, and with them, you can have a serious conversation about the pluses and the minuses each piece of land has. This kind of advice can be immensely important if you don’t have much experience in this kind of thing yourself. For example, agents can list out all the infrastructure your plot of land has.

The agency can also negotiate on your behalf and help you with all the necessary paperwork and legal procedures. This includes transferring ownership rights, utilities, public notaries, lawyers and purchase agreements.

You have to admit that the thought of going through all that paperwork by yourself is not a particularly pleasant one. Hiring an agency can therefore save you quite a lot of time, diminish stress and ultimately help you make a better decision.
