It took me 3 holidays to find the best and cheapest way to buy a house.
Stay away from estate agents, they are very profesional, but you will pay up to 3 times the price it should be.
Find a Greek friend who will act as an interpriter
Inland towns ( say half a mile ) from the sea are much cheaper.
Do lots of walking and talking to find a house for sale, a piece of paper with what you want to say in Greek, helps a lot.
I found a run down old house 3 levels, with the top level having great views for 27,000 euros, I will need approx 15,000 to finish.
sorry for any spelling misstakes
missed out on being a grammer school grub
Incidentally I haven't heard the expression Grammar Grub for about 35 years. As an ex Grammar Grub who lived on the same street as the local Secondary Modern I heard it constantly when I had to run the gauntlet when going home. School-days, best years of your life if you happen to be a masochist. (Note spellings are correct having had spelling drummed in for 7 years! Detention consisited of writing out spelling rules)
