Closing the Gap(s): Unlocking the Real-Estate Potential

The dysfunctional management of real estate is a major hindrance to our society's development. For instance, only half of Serbia's 10 million properties are registered in the cadastre and part of the regulated market. Many properties remain untapped due to inadequate spatial planning. This leads to legal uncertainties and hinders planned investments. Addressing property-related issues and reforming property management is a significant regional development opportunity, potentially unlocking billions in real estate investments and resolving numerous long-standing legal proceedings. This requires committed authorities and resource allocation, which, though not insignificant, are outweighed by the losses incurred by not addressing these issues. Sharing successful reform experiences is crucial for the region to progress and tackle longstanding problems.
