YOUR Greek HOME
Where to start
Have you ever visited Corfu before and fell in love at first sight with Greek culture? You can build your own home here and learn to live like a Greek.
House construction in Greece starts with purchasing a land plot. This transaction consists of several stages. Our office will do its best to fulfill your wish. At first the owner has to provide a copy of his own land purchase contract and a topography plan of the land plot. These documents correlates with the actual existing plot, and they will also check the plot’s construction coefficients. These are factors which define the maximal permissible metric area of the building that may be constructed on this particular plot.
All land plots in Greece split into 2 categories:
plots within a populated area
plots outside a populated area
Plots covering an area exceeding 4000 m2 are considered eligible for construction (exception can be made for plots covering a smaller area which adjoin a road).
Permissible metric area of a house to be constructed on such plot is calculated in the following way:
Plot 4000m2: a building which has a metric area of 200m2 is allowed to be constructed.
Plot area 4000-8000m2: the building metric area is calculated as follows: 200m2 + (plot metric area – 4000) x0.02
Plot area over 8000m2: the building metric area is calculated as follows: 280m2 + (plot metric area – 8000) x0.01
There are several exceptions that does not follow this general rule. Some examples are the location of the plot (near a road), of its creation date, Natura zone e.t.c.

Fifth Step:Get a notary.This person is our guide through bureaucracy, has the ability to make or brake the property sale.
Sixth Step: Pay your taxes. The buyer pays for the property tax transfer in Greece, which is set at 3%. You won’t be able to do it without an AFM, which is a Greek social security number. You can get one by filling out M1 and M7 tax forms.

I am not a Greek. Can I buy Greek LAND?
The answer is YES in both cases. If you are EU resident you will run into almost no restrictions purchasing a property on the islands but if you aren't (non-EU resident) then you will need to prove both your connection to the country and your intent for property use. This application is made to the Ministry of National Defense, mostly involves submission of documents and proof of use intent.
