Why investing in Hungarian property is a wise choice for 2012

Predicted to attract over 9 million tourists in 2012 by the World Travel and Tourism Council, a rise of 2.9% from 2011, the country is benefiting from an influx of visitors and foreign investors, all eager to visit a country not affected by the current Euro crisis.

Working alongside an experienced partner company who have been based in Hungary for many years, Knight Knox International has a wide range of properties in the vicinity of Lake Balaton, at extremely competitive prices.

Properties located in idyllic villages close to Lake Balaton and local towns are available from as little as £7,926. Each one has at least 1,500sqm of land and the low price point gives investors the option to increase the size of their property and build a large family home or retirement villa.
