As more and more foreigners are targeting the Greek real estate market for the purpose of investing and securing their own place in Greece, international real estate agency Algean Property covers the top ten reasons why foreigners should buy a home in Greece, underlining that the country is among the last “unexplored” European paradises for vacation home owners.
The top reason to buy a house in Greece — as revealed by Algean Property — is the easy and direct access by all means of transport, including airplanes, boats, and cars. Considering especially air transfer, the article refers to the 21 international airports located across Greece’s mainland and islands, and the active interest shown by many large airlines like British Airways, Turkish Airlines, Qatar Airways, Air Berlin, Aegean Airlines, Norwegian, Ryanair, EasyJet, Brussels Airlines, Transavia and Ellin Air.
The second reason relates to the very good climate Greece has to offer its visitors throughout the year. The average temperature is 18 degrees C, with more than 300 days of 8.5 hours sunshine daily, mentions the article.
The article also gets into Greece’s coastline, which “are double the coastlines of Spain and Portugal, featuring almost 400 beaches awarded with blue flags,” and is at 13,676km the lengthiest coastline in the Mediterranean, thus providing ideal locations for vacation homes to be bought and built.
The 10 reasons for acquiring a holiday home in Greece are:
- Quality of life
