Development of Greek Real Estate

The best return of your Greek real estate (e.g. a plot, vacant or not) may sometimes lie in its development rather than its sale. Accordingly, assistance is provided with agreements with contractors and/or other professionals for the building of your property to your wishes and specifications. Mind the sometimes convenient vehicle of “anti-parohi”, which practically results in your attaining one or more completed apartments in exchange of your plot to the contractor’s disposal.
