Eurostat: Greek Real Estate Declines as Compared to EU Counterparts

According to figures released by Eurostat on Monday, the Greek real estate market is on a steady year-on-year decline over the last quarter of 2016. Bank of Greece statistics reveal that property rates in Greece have decreased by 0.6 percent in Q4 last year, lagging behind its EU counterparts.

Reasons for the downward-trending realty climate is due to the low household incomes, high unemployment rate and a hefty tax burden. Property professionals say that the local market is entering a phase of stabilization but may take some time to materialize since more austerity measures will inevitably weigh down on the already negative market, as reported by ekathimerini.com

Experts say that it is expected that the understanding Athens has reached with creditors will help the Greek market and economy avoid the worst.
