The impact of inflation on the purchase and the price of real estate has already been studied many authors. But their opinions differ depending on the location where surveys were carried out. Therefore, we decided that with the help of different statistical methods, we examine the hypothesis “Purchase Real Estate Represents Protection Against Inflation” for the Slovenian real estate market.
