Foreword
As the number of editions increases, the Real Estate Transaction Guide of
Cluj-Napoca becomes an increasingly relevant tool for the real estate
market, certainly becoming a reference project for Romania.
Transparency, communication and making the analyzed data available to
citizens are elements that make the Real Estate Transaction Guide an
extremely useful tool for Cluj-Napoca residents and for people who
choose our city as an investment destination.
The guide provides a true mirror of the reality of transactions in one of
the most dynamic real estate markets in the country and the existence of
this report, updated annually, allows this type of information to be
accessible to everyone and brings more security to the citizens who
decide to make real estate purchases.

Mayor of Cluj-Napoca

Dear readers,
The 7th Edition of the Real Estate Transactions Guide, carried out by Veridio in partnership with
the City Hall of Cluj-Napoca, is based on the information collected by the City Hall from the
sale-purchase agreements concluded in 2019.
The moment when we completed this analysis full of information, information that is worth
considering, overlaps with the medical crisis generated by the COVID 19 pandemic that
disrupted both our businesse and our lives. In this context, the perception of the figures in this
guide will have to be maintained at its references dates, respectively the end of 2019. For the
first quarter of 2020 was registered an increase in the volume of the real estate transactions
over the similar period of 2019. We will record the whole year 2020 and the effects of the
pandemic on the real estate market in the forthcoming edition of the guide.
Returning to the current edition, we find that the real estate market in Cluj-Napoca witnessed
in 2019 an intense activity, with real estate transactions of almost 680 mil. EUR, up 6% over
the previous year.
The average price per square meter for apartments in 2019 is 1,362 EUR/ sqm, increasing by
over 5.5% compared to 2018, upholding Cluj-Napoca as the city with the most effervescent
real estate market in Romania since the real estate crisis that commenced 11 years ago.
The growing interest for this top region of the country comes, in a significant proportion, from
the neighboring counties, such as Maramureș, Bistrița-Năsăud, Alba, Sălaj, Mureș and Satu
Mare, so that over 28% of the 2019 buyers come from other counties, and just under 2%
come from across the borders.
We invite you to find many other interesting details by browsing the pages of this new edition.

Zorilor, Gruia, Grigorescu, Mănăștur, Plopilor, as well as looking for less

Transactions with residential properties, such as houses (land and building) have a
non-homogeneous structure that does not allow a relevant analysis at district level,
hence the conclusions were expressed globally.
