Exactly a year ago, Corfu property specialist Diane returned from London to Corfu, knowing that there was some sort of virus beginning to spread. Heathrow seemed to have normal passenger volume, but Athens airport was very quiet and shortly after her return, Greece went into its first lockdown. There were no UK incoming flights to Corfu’s regional airports until July.
We feel blessed to have been in lockdown in Corfu all this time, says Diana from CorfuHomeFinders. Like most things, the Greek property market has certainly taken a hit. But as life returns to normal, buyers are beginning to think about their options.
As Plato said, necessity is the mother of invention, and Greece’s lockdown could be just what the country needed to modernise its property buying systems. We look at the lockdown in Greece, how it is being relaxed in time for summer and what it might have done for property prices.
The past year was one of the best in recent memory for Greece, with the economy growing, political stability and tourists coming in ever-greater numbers. The property market is buoyant too, but prices are low. So will 2020 be the year you buy here? Diana from Corfuhomefinders tells us about the year just gone and how the good news should make buying in 2020 even more tempting
