The prices of real estate in Cluj-Napoca have been increasing consistently since the market crashed in 2010, however, some of the listings posted across agencies in Cluj have become so hard to imagine, that it has locals scratching their heads and rubbing their eyes in disbelief.
€168,000 – “3-Room Apartment in Horea zone”
It's being listed as a “Central Apartment”, and is actually situated at Strada Horea 60 which is 1.2k, from the centre, and is a 3-room apartment which is currently posted for sale on neoimobiliare.ro.
The apartment has been labeled as “a coop for €165k”, by a Facebook user, when it appeared in a Cluj-Napoca Facebook group. The space is pretty much empty, and is clearly in need of some serious investment.
Based on the images, for you are offered an apartment of 60sq/m costing around €2,800 sq/m, high, even by Cluj standards, with cigarette smoke-damaged surround a rotting floor, with random pieces of old furniture left from the previous occupant.
There are holes in the wall and cracks in the ceiling and is located on the first floor for a 4-storey building and is being advertised as “sold according to the photos”.
The only possible redeeming qualities of this space is it's proximity to the UBB Faculty of Letters and public transport links.
