Mortgage Loans in Greece.

Cedar Bank and Cyprus Bank grant mortgage loans in Greece to Russian citizens.

Terms and Conditions of Mortgage:

Term of mortgage: up to 10 years.

Currency: Euro

Bank service fee: 1% of the total loan amount.

Borrower’s own financial recourses: at least 40% of the price of property he intends to buy

Interest rates may differ and amount to 9% per year or higher.


Mortgage is secured by the borrower’s property obligations. The property he intends buying serves as a guaranty against the borrower’s failure to pay back the mortgage.

Cedar Bank branches located in Greece as well as some Greek banks which grant mortgage loans to foreign citizens provide Russian buyers an additional opportunity to purchase property on Aegean Sea coast.
