Greece is a full member of European Union from January 1981 and was in the first wave of Member States to adopt the Euro in 2002. It enjoys political stability and dispite the economic crisis, after EU bail out the worst seems over. With the help of European Union Greece is in the process of completing its vast programme of infrastructure projects and that means that every level of transport and communications is being upgraded on a profound scale.
Property has always been a major investment sector for Greeks and the property buying process is simple and secure. There are no restrictions placed upon a non-resident wishing to purchase property in Greece, either from Europe or elsewhere except for properties close to the national borders when a special permission is required.
Greece is one of the most popular holiday destinations in Europe and that makes water front or coastal properties situated close to holiday resorts to be more expensive. Places around Athens and other larger city centres have also higher property costs. But there is plenty of space. In general, the further away from popular holiday resorts you go the cheaper the prices.
