Europe's 10 Hottest Housing Markets

10. Chisinau, Moldova
10. Chisinau, Moldova

Starting off the countdown at number ten is Chisinau, the capital and largest city of the Republic of Moldova. The Republic of Moldova is a country in Eastern Europe, bordered by Romania and Ukraine. Chisinau is Moldova's main industrial and commercial center, and is located in the middle of the country. The city, known formerly as Kishinev, is the most economically prosperous locality in Moldova and its largest transportation hub. The city is surrounded by a relatively level landscape with very fertile land. Moldova gained independence from the Soviet Union in 1991, and is one of the poorest economies in Europe. Chisinau is plagued with secessionist problems and high tax rates. Another significant issue in real estate investment is that all purchases must be in cash. But these issues are more than made up for by its pro-landlord rental market and high yields, making it a hot destination for real estate investment.
