The Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung provides an extensive report on the purchase of holiday homes in Greece, focusing on the growing demand of Greek coastal properties, with the result that their prices are also increasing. “Right now Greece is the most attractive holiday market in the Mediterranean,” writes FAZ. In fact, the tendency to buy holiday homes in Greece seems to have increased during the pandemic and the expansion of teleworking opportunities, with the newspaper quoting the views of brokers and experts in the housing market in Greece. Elsewhere, the report notes about the profile of buyers: “Now not everyone interested wants to use the cottages for the same use. Greece is increasingly attracting the attention of investors.”
The report also notes: “The Cyclades, with Mykonos and Santorini, have a total of 39 islands, of which 24 are inhabited. Amorgos, Naxos, Paros or Tinos offer paradise beaches and archeological sites. If one spends time searching, one can find a house of 100 sq.m. and a usable plot of land from 200,000 to 250,000 euros and can move there immediately, say real estate experts.”
Special mention is made of Syros and Thassos, an island that is “little known in Germany. It is in fact the northernmost inhabited island of the Aegean, which is often called the emerald of the Aegean because of its shape and its green vegetation “.
