We spoke with Boris Bakač, owner of a company that deals with advanced software solutions for design and visualization in architecture

1. Tell us a little more about your company? Digital Media d.o.o. from Čakovec (digitalmedia.hr) has in its offer advanced software solutions for design and visualization in architecture and related activities. We offer our customers advice, training and comprehensive support when using the software. From our offer we would like to point out: SketchUp Pro - currently the most popular tool for 3D modeling with open architecture for extensions, V-Ray - one of the most respected rendering solutions for photorealistic displays of 3D models, ArCon Professional - simple and fast software for 3D design and visualization completely translated in Croatian, ARCHLine.XP - an advanced and comprehensive tool for architectural and interior design, WETO Viskon - software for 3D design and production of wooden houses and roof structures and ZWCAD - classic CAD and for the most complex projects using the standard AutoCAD DWG format. 2. Some new technologies for displaying commercial spaces are coming (VR, AR, 3D displays). Can you tell us a little more about that? Computer 3D display uses computer graphics techniques to display an existing or new space or model. Representations can be from linear to photorealistic, in the form of a static image or film. They are usually displayed on two-dimensional surfaces as a projection of a 3D model. It is also possible to have a stereoscopic display by creating two different images for the left and right eye or a spatial display using, for example, a hologram. VR (Virtual Reality) or virtual reality is a technology of complete immersion of users in computer-generated space. The user has a sense of presence in that virtual space and can interact with the elements in the space and control the movement. VR requires more complex equipment for the user: eg special helmets / masks, gloves with sensors and more. AR (Augmented Reality) or augmented reality is a technology of inserting computer-generated content into the user's field of vision. The space can be supplemented with new, virtual elements, such as a new wall color or a new desk, or just informative messages, such as additional information about the room we are looking at, the price and delivery time of cabinets in our field of vision and the like. For the augmented realities we use, a mobile device with a camera and a screen for displaying the environment with inserted content is enough. More comfortable systems are possible with glasses with a built-in projection system for the pupils of our eyes. 3. How can we use 3D views in advertising business premises? The three-dimensional display allows the customer to register all aspects of the advertised space faster. The customer can more easily imagine the relationships of individual elements, notice the layout of the room faster, register the heights of individual parts of the room, windows, niches and the like compared to the 2D floor plan. From the 3D model of the business space, we can generate views from different points of view: we generate floor plans, cross-sections and views that best represent the business space according to the client's request. It is possible to automatically generate a statement of measurements of individual elements of space: surfaces of rooms, walls, volumes,… In the existing 3D model of space we can place the user's specific objects and see and explore their position in space. 4. How can renders help advertise business premises? Renders give us a photorealistic or non-photorealistic (by mimicking different art styles) image of a 3D model of a business space. In the photorealistic display, the customer can see realistic, already existing materials and equipment or a space simulation with materials and equipment of their choice. It can also investigate the relationships of light and darkness in a space, what effect individual lighting gives and whether, for example, lighting is suitable for the activity and how it changes during the working day. On the other hand, a more abstract rendering of a (non-photorealistic) business space model makes it easier for the customer to imagine the space, for example details and colors, without predefined constraints or settings. 5. How can new technologies change the display and only advertising of commercial buildings, and only the real estate market? 3D models allow the client to choose the ways to view the business space, be it photorealistic, abstract, with their own equipment or offered equipment. In this way, even before the purchase or lease of space, the buyer "adjusts" and adjusts it to their liking and thus significantly facilitates the sale or lease. Today, almost all of us have mobile devices that support augmented reality (AI) technology. With appropriate applications, we can supplement the advertised business space with information, graphic elements or specific objects tailored to the customer. Or the customer can insert their own equipment into the space. For larger projects and for significant customers, the use of virtual reality technology is cost-effective. The customer immerses the space, tours it with a virtual walk and thus gets a direct experience of the value of movables.

Croats need to be aware that property insurance is an investment, not an expense

It only takes a few minutes for what has been painstakingly built over the years to disappear in an instant. Proof of this is the series of earthquakes in 2020 that shook central Croatia, and a few years ago Croats encountered large fires, floods and torrents that caused multimillion-dollar damage to property of citizens throughout Croatia. According to Eurostat, Croatia is at the top of the European scale in real estate ownership. More precisely, almost 90 percent of Croats own at least one. However, despite the great damage, when it comes to property insurance, we are at the bottom of the European scale. Awareness of the personal responsibility of Croats is still low, although the average property insurance premium in our country is three to four times lower than the European average. Nives Grgurić is the head of legal affairs and projects at the Croatian Insurance Bureau, a national insurance bureau that represents an association of insurance companies in legal transactions with third parties. He sees the reason for these statistics in the low level of awareness of citizens about the need for insurance in general, but also in the fact that some of them are not aware of the meaning of their property. - Insufficient apartment buildings are insured in the construction part, especially from earthquakes. These include common areas of buildings such as sheds and attics, staircases, foundations and basement walls, built-in installations and all built-in appliances. Apartment owners do not have the feeling that they are the co-owners of these parts of the buildings. When a natural disaster occurs, many of our citizens expect help from the state, which is not realistic and which is an indicator of the lack of awareness of personal responsibility for their own property - comments Nives Grgurić. Croatian premium lower than the European average The earthquake is, however, only one of the risks that can damage or destroy property and cause large costs to owners if they do not have insurance protection. The large disproportion of investment in property insurance in Croatia compared to other European countries is of particular concern, as Croatia, along with Greece, Turkey, Northern Macedonia and Italy, is in the most tectonic risk area in Europe. Namely, for property insurance, the average premium per capita in the European Union is 174 euros, and in Croatia only 51 euros per capita. - There is a noticeable trend of concluding property insurance contracts. Although it is an unfortunate event that has extremely severe consequences for many, the earthquake is likely to encourage citizens to think more about the possibility of harmful events in their lives and business and to think more actively about the relationship between insurance investment and potential costs - adds Nives Grgurić. Precisely in the strong earthquakes that hit Zagreb and Petrinja, Sisak, Glina and the surrounding area, insurers reacted quickly and efficiently to the earthquake and performed the necessary actions in difficult conditions and paid significant amounts of insurance (over EUR 55 million) within the legal deadlines. Insurance as an investment, not a cost According to a survey by Ipsos Pulse, more than 65 percent of citizens significantly overestimate the amount needed to fully insure the average apartment. Namely, for the price of an average apartment of 60 m2 in Zagreb, the annual premium is around 1,000 kuna. Although the property insurance premium per capita in Croatia has been growing very slightly in the last ten years, this growth and absolute value are still far below the European average. - Certainly a higher standard of living affects purchasing power. However, in EU countries, citizens with lower incomes than Croatia spend much more on insurance because there is a higher level of awareness of the importance of insurance and a different understanding of insurance. Insurance is primarily an investment, not a cost. Awareness of property insurance in the Republic of Croatia is still very low. The penetration and density of insurance show the insufficiency of property insurance in relation to other European countries - Grgurić comments. Ljubica Caren, a pensioner with an address in Zagreb's Čučerje, felt the consequences of the lack of property insurance because her property was damaged in an earthquake and the damage was great. - I was thinking of insuring the property after the earthquake because I am aware that property insurance is a useful investment. A neighbor had a chimney damaged during the quake, and her insurance paid all the expenses. These new houses also have a lot of investments, so it is certainly profitable to insure their property - concludes Ljubica Caren. Liljana Pušić is an accountant who owns real estate in Kašina and has been a property insurance user for twenty years. - Now we've even stepped up the shelf since the earthquake. Our house has three secured floors, we have secured movables on two. Insurance also covers earthquakes. Unfortunately, people in Croatia do not have the habit of securing a house and are negligent. They don’t care about their real estate, and most have inherited it. If you will not invest, you give up many things, and real estate insurance is important to us. There are people who don't. However, that is why we sleep more peacefully - comments the resident of Kašina. The question of the individual, but also others There are three basic elements of home property insurance that citizens of the Republic of Croatia must keep in mind, including earthquake insurance. Homeowners can provide movables, i.e. things in their apartment like a TV or furniture and a construction part. The third part that can be provided, ie the common parts of the apartment building such as the staircase, roof or basement, the co-owners contract with the building manager separately. - Insurers are efficient in repairing and compensating for damage, and in a short period of time the property of the insured is returned to its original condition. However, the most important thing is to be well acquainted with the insurance conditions that are taken out for a particular case and to be aware of what we pay the insurance premium for, or what exactly it covers in the event of a harmful event. Insurance companies offer many products of different profiles and it is necessary to find the one that best suits individual personal or business needs - comments Nives Grgurić. The benefits of property insurance are many. In addition to ensuring a secure existence independent of uncontrolled influences, it also provides opportunities to manage all risks, adds Grgurić. - The purpose of property insurance is to increase the economic stability of individuals, but also society as a whole. Insurance also performs important social functions because, the greater the representation of insurance, the less the eventual obligation of the state to compensate for damage and economic assistance to individuals and companies, such as fires and floods - comments the head of legal affairs and projects of the Croatian Insurance Bureau (HUO), Nives Grgurić. Financial literacy is crucial The fact that the lack of insurance can lead citizens into serious problems, whether in life or business, and their decisions are greatly influenced by the financial literacy of citizens. It is needed so that the people of Croatia can more easily make informed decisions about financial products and services, including property insurance. Since 2015, insurance companies and the Croatian Insurance Bureau (HUO) have been carrying out activities aimed at affirming and popularizing the financial literacy of citizens, especially young people. The project is implemented within the National Strategic Framework for Financial Literacy of Consumers, and the National Strategic Framework for Financial Literacy for the period from 2021 to 2026 is being prepared. The joint project of financial literacy 2021 of insurance companies and the Croatian Insurance Bureau, with the support of the Association of Insurers of the Croatian Chamber of Commerce, is the crown of many years of work to raise youth awareness of the importance of financial literacy in insurance. Financial literacy is essential so that citizens can make the right decisions for the benefit of themselves and their property and to raise the general level of awareness of personal responsibility.

Interest in APN loans has dropped

Despite generous state subsidies, interest in APN is lower this year than last. Namely, in the spring of 2020, in a month, despite the lockdown and the then extremely uncertain situation with COVID-19, APN received 3681 applications for loan subsidies, while this year, at a time when the government is still optimistic about the epidemic (hopefully ) sees the end, 3459 customers applied for subsidies. The difference in the number of applications is even bigger if compared to last year's autumn deadline, when APN received as many as 4651 requests. The situation on the real estate market is well reflected in the data on newly approved housing loans - despite last year's rise in real estate prices, the number of newly approved housing loans in 2020, according to the CNB (excluding reprograms) increased by only 2.5 percent, from 12, 1 to HRK 12.4 billion. The reasons for the reduced influx of subsidies, according to experts in the real estate market, mostly lie in the growth of real estate prices, which is why many buyers have postponed their investment in real estate. However, the 'wait and see' position was also taken by sellers, who for the time being generally do not lower real estate prices, although demand, judging by the number of real estate sold, fell throughout Croatia last year, and in Zagreb demand is falling for the third year in a row. The biggest drop in demand was in the city center, most likely as a result of the earthquake, which is why buyers turned to newer real estate in other parts of Zagreb. That Centar, Gornji Grad and Medveščak have lost their appeal is also shown by the data from Njuškalo on the increased offer of apartments in those neighborhoods. Before the corona and earthquake, in April 2019, 2,000 apartments were advertised on the most popular real estate search engine in those three Zagreb neighborhoods, and now there are as many as 3,000 on offer. For comparison, about 10,000 apartments are currently advertised on Njuškalo throughout Zagreb. Certain price corrections in the center of Zagreb have been visible lately, so according to Njuškalo, the asking prices in that part of the city have dropped in the last year by 100 euros per square meter. What will happen next with residential real estate prices is not at all easy to predict because macroeconomic trends are uncertain, and they in turn largely depend on the epidemiological situation. Also, there are a lot of unknowns about the upcoming tourist season. The answers to these questions will probably be easier to give in the fall, when this year's tourist balance is clearer. The only thing that is certain for now is that this year there will be no autumn round of the APN, so everyone who counted on a state subsidy to solve the housing issue will have to start in the spring of 2022.
