Selling Your Greek Home

Are you selling up? A new year means a new start and it is the ideal time to put your house on the market and aim for a fresh start. When it comes to selling up, it is a good idea to leave it until after Christmas and in to spring, as this is the best time to sell up. Most property viewing trips happen in the spring time or after Christmas because this is when most of the property buyers from overseas come to visit Greece.


If you have valued your house at a reasonable and sensible price, then there is no reason why you won't receive a lot of interest in your property. To ensure a quick sale, you should price your home at a low price because this will attract the most interest, especially in this time where everyone has been hit by a global crisis. But if you are planning to get as much as you can for your property and are not too worried about a quick sale, then try to make your property as appealing as possible.

The most important thing to do when advertising your property is letting people and estate agents know that your property is for sale. This can be done in many ways, for e.g. have a ‘for sale' sign, advertise the property with a number of agents, tell people and local businesses about your property.

Some property buyers are interested in trying out living in a new home and area before committing themselves to buying the property. This is particularly popular with those who are travelling from overseas to view properties in Greece. So, if you have time on your hands, you may be interested in renting your property to anyone who is interested in buying the property. This is different to normal renting, because the rent will be short-term instead of long-term, so you will not be attracting people who are looking for cheap accommodation.
