DEFINITIONS - REAL ESTATE TYPES
We call a VILLA every house that is built in an architecturally beautiful way. It has a view of the sea, lake, river, mountains… It has additional facilities, such as - swimming pool, beautiful garden, some sports facilities ...
The term HOUSE means - a built residential building that is not a villa, nor a stone house, nor a building with apartments for rent to tourists, nor a business building. No special facilities.
The house in the construction of which the basic material was used - stone - is a STONE HOUSE. It is especially important that it was built in an authentic Adriatic style. A complete renovation is often needed.
APARTMENT is a part of a building that was built mainly for tourist purposes. It is mostly used only occasionally, mostly in the summer tourist season. It can also be a small detached building, built mainly for rent to tourists.
SUITE is a part of a building that was built mainly for permanent residence. Mostly in cities. In addition, it differs from the apartment in that the apartment can be larger than 100m2 and even 200m2.
COMMERCIAL was built for the purpose of economic activity. E.g. - offices, hotels, restaurants, shops, cafes, large halls, etc.…
BUILDING PLOT is land on which it can be built. It is located in such an urban zone, where construction is allowed. There are different construction zones. For example - exclusively for residential construction, exclusively for tourist construction, exclusively for business construction, etc.
LAND - is any land other than construction land. These are mostly agricultural lands, on which ordinary buildings cannot be built. The construction of facilities that will serve agricultural production is allowed, but under special conditions.

What clients say?
We were looking through different agencies for our dream property in Croatia, but we were shown just examples that we saw online. Than we met Ante. At initial meeting, we drunk together a few cups of excellent espresso coffe while Ante asked us millions of different questions. Through our answers, he understood what we really like. Right that day he took us at the property that we immediatelly chose and bought. Thanks Ante. John and Priscilla, London“
Agency. Yes or no...?
5 years ago we bought an apartment in Trogir. We found the investor ourselves, we solved everything ourselves. It took us more than 2 years to sort everything out neatly. Lots of problems. We recently bought a house. Through Ante, of course. It took 14 days from the moment of the decision to the registration in our name. A huge difference. Thanks Ante ... !!! The Sherkovich family
Recommendation from Berlin
Mr Nevistic of the Adriatica Real Estate, was exceptionally helpful during our search for an old stone house in Kastela town. Over the time frame of two months we emailed him dozens of times, with different questions. The queries were always promptly and clearly answered. What is most important, from initial search through final purchase contract, Mr Nevistic watched out for our interests. A superb real estate company. Marrianne Weber
