Hi All,

I am considering buying an apartment in the Ochota area of Warsaw for €150k.

Do you think this is a good area? rental potential?

Any advice would be great thanks

id recommend you fly over and look at any investment with your own eyes before parting with such money.

Its on Solinska Street and 1 Sierpnia Street crossroads, do you know this area?

Yes Im from Warsaw
It can be, not bad but not pretty good

Stara Ochota (Old Ochota) is the best localisation - Uniwersytecka, Filtrowa, Plac Narutowicza

Thanks for your help!

Would you think 150k for a 78sq apt is good value?

Do you think that it property prices in the area will appreciate in value?

Thanks again for all your help

78 sq is not a large one. But I guess it's a Polish standard. I guess that's a good investment.

In my opinion better is to buy smaller apartaments(about 40 sqm) - more biger apartament more dificcult to let.
For that price you can find a house on the suberbs of Warsaw (20 km from the centre) .
Many people sell their apart. and start to think about buying or building the house.

Hi Paddy,

At the moment. the way prices are rising, and with much investment going into Warsaw, i don't think you can go too far wrong in buying anywhere in Warsaw.

However, i would agree with Kasia13's comment about purchasing a smaller size apartment. The optimum size is between 40-60m2. (Studios or 1 bedrooms); these would be easier to rent.

However with smaller sized apartments being the most popular, they are also the hardest to buy. When developemnts go on sale, it is the smaller units that get snapped up first.

Good luck with your purchase !

I think you'd do best to invest elsewhere in Poland, unless you have a reason to invest there. You will get good information from the RedNet site.

Why are you thinking about Ochota? Ursynow is much better with underground railway and easy connection to the city centre, especially apartments along KEN street/

Rates would be between 10.000-12.000 per square metre in case of apartments ca. 50 square metres
