For comparison: in Marousi, the apartment cost has increased per 2,5%, in Ampelokipoi area per 1,9%, in Palaio Faliro per 1,23% and in Cholargos per 0,9%.

A study conducted by employees of “Geoaxis” indicated that during the first trimester of the current year, the apartment cost in multistory buildings which were constructed 15 years before, viz. before 2006, has also increased.

Report by experts
Geoaxis published a report by the company’s founder and CEO, Giannis Xylas, who supports that property market in Greece (using the example of Athens) has exhibited significant tolerance. Oddly, the pandemic did not have a negative effect. Following the price stabilization last year, there is a steady increasing trend in housing prices this year. In addition, the average ratio of this increase is already above 2%.
The expert is convinced that the rebound noticed this year and a certain increase in apartment cost will continue with faster pace, especially in rental apartments and living spaces in old buildings which are located within a satisfying distance from the city center.
