Property Market In Greece For 2014
Following to a continuous and dramatic four year compression, property prices are this year expected to start getting on the rise. When compared to those of 2008, current property prices have dropped from 35 to 50% and many owners are still willing to sell even lower, given their poor economic standing.
We are currently sensing a change of this market climate though and entering a new phase.
This market reverse is due to the following reasons:
- The macro economic situation of Greece is improving. The European Central Bank is happy to see Greece with a considerable budget surplus for 2013, after many years of deficits
- Passing of laws in order to attract overseas buyers. Greece grants visas to families buying properties over â‚¬250,0000 to citizens of Russia and other Eastern European countries as well as China
- Property Transfer Tax on buyers is now reduced to 3% from 10%
- Villa rental procedures are simplified, so as to help owners gain income
One also needs to keep in mind that Corfu is easily accessible from all over Europe. Starting every year, from April until the end of October there are numerous flights connecting Corfu with most European countries as well as Moscow and Saint Petersburg in Russia.
Aforementioned reasons contribute into making property a sound investment on a mid to long term basis.

Building Energy Efficiency Certificate
All buildings of minimum plan area of 50 m. sq. (about 500 sq. ft) need to have an Energy Efficiency Certificate in order to be rented or sold.
These certificates rate buildings according to their energy efficiency and are similar to those issued for electrical appliances. An estimate of their energy consumption will be made in order to cover heating, cooling, lighting and aeration needs and a series of works will be suggested in order to reduce them.
Such certificates are issued by Energy Inspectors.
You can contact us for a fee estimate or any further information.
