The central parts of the Podgórze district are one of the focus areas for Hamilton May in terms of our sales listings owing to the city centre location and good communication links. As with any region of the city our priority is to focus high standard apartments for sale.
The rental market in Podgórze
Sales prices are lower than in very centre of the city and generally around or just below the average in Krakow. Prices for buying an apartment in Podgórze fall in more outlying areas of the district. As always, sale prices will depend on the location and quality of the apartment, and there are still many affordable pockets of Podgórze, where a property can be cheaply purchased.
It should be taken into consideration that the Podgórze covers a large area resulting in a broad price differentiation. As with other districts Podgórze attracts a cross section of expats and families, however in recent years it has become more popular with working professionals, particularly in the streets in the vicinity of the Vistula river and within walking distance of Kazimierz.
Description of property in Podgórze
The central area of Podgorze is characterized by old style tenement or town house style buildings which line the streets around Podgorze’s main thoroughfares of Kalwaryjska and Limanowskiego. It is also the host to buildings of architectural interest, such as St Joseph’s church.
In outer areas of Podgorze, there is a mixture of housing types, from communist tower blocks to modern residential developments. In the old town parts of Podgórze, apartments located in tenement buildings which are in poor condition are still in relatively low demand and the prices reflect this. However better quality apartments, particularly in new developments, now command higher than average market prices and are increasing in popularity. In areas of Podgórze where there is a higher supply of property, such as Przewóz and Płaszów, prices for new apartments in developer’s standard are typically around the market average for Krakow.
