Serbian citizens buy apartments in Greece in large numbers. On the Chalkidiki peninsula alone, they bought around 15,000 properties last year alone.
There also seems to be a craze for buying apartments in Trieste and on the Bulgarian coast, as they are cheaper than those in Greece, reports RTS.
Purchasing procedures do not differ significantly from those of the local population. Thanks to favorable prices, Greece is the No. 1 country for Serbs to buy property abroad.
“Serbs mainly buy apartments whose average price is between 1,350 and 2,000 euros per square meter. This is the lowest price range,” says Aleksandra Jovanović, a real estate agent in Greece.
If you want to buy an apartment in Greece, in addition to money, you need to find a good real estate agency that negotiates the purchase. The possibility of a double sale is minimal and the agencies also have translators, lawyers and good contacts with notaries to facilitate the purchase.
“When you buy a property in Greece, you only pay a 3% tax. For example, the annual tax for the apartment I sold last week, which has 55 square meters and is located in the center from Thessaloniki, is only 140 euros,” said Jovanović.
