Hartlepool, United Kingdom (PressExposure) May 08, 2009 -- Property in Greece is having a heyday of sorts, due to the current prevalence of lifestyle buyers in the market, and the new tendency to look to less conventional spots to make lifestyle buys, according to overseas property portal Property Abroad.
"Greece is one of the most impressive places in the world. It has a beautiful climate, gorgeous beaches and landscapes, rich cultural and historic heritage, and some of the friendliest people in the world. People have never had one holiday in Greece, because they always go back for more," said Erin Scott, a trends analyst with Property Abroad.
"At the massive growth of people buying property overseas, heralded by the rise of the internet and online property sales, Greece property became instantly one of the most popular locations, and as such prices grew rapidly," he continued.
"The credit crunch has not done much about the prices, but it has sorted the wheat from the chaff when it comes to sellers, and now lifestyle buyers have an uncluttered path to the best properties in Greece, and this is increasing activity," Erin concluded.
Property Abroad.com is currently advertising hundreds of properties for sale in Greece, from restoration opportunities at next to nothing, to luxury palatial 4 bedroom villas at over Â£2million. The portal also has a particularly large selection of commercial property investment opportunities in Greece, including a resort style 2* in Elounda for Â£2,218,800.
