– The object of observation of this research is not the apartments of the old housing stock, nor other types of immovable property: commercial buildings, land and others. The survey does not reflect the supply and demand of new apartments on the market, but prices calculated on the basis of concluded sales contracts – the statement of the Directorate of Statistics states.
