Real Estate and construction has been among the most rapidly developing areas in the Baltic States during recent years. Before the global financial crisis took hold, the scope of construction was constantly increasing, real estate market was expanding along with growing demand on flats and houses and real property prices. Nevertheless, a sudden economic downturn had painfully affected the sector of real estate and construction. Prices of real estate and rent significantly diminished, consequently, a great deal of subjects participating in this field underwent immense financial difficulties.
As market participants say this was due to constantly changing and laws as well incoherent growth of cities and lack of land plots.
Upon Lithuania's accession to EU, hotel and guest house business has been rapidly developing; however, the Lithuanian hotel competitiveness with the neighbouring countries concerning the flow of tourists was complicated by the state tax policy.
