Nonresident students are hunting for “houses” on the roofs, because the rent for housing has risen sharply.
With the start of the academic year in Greece, the number of student housing is increasing throughout the country. According to Themis Bakas, President of the Panhellenic Real Estate Rental Network (Πανελλαδικού Δικτύου Ε-Real Estates), Themis Bakas told ERT, “It’s hard to find real estate. Prices are high, especially in Athens, Thessaloniki, Kalamata and Chania. “
Mr. Bakas referred to high student housing prices, citing illustrative examples and further clarifying that “one of the reasons for the significant price increase is that many properties that have been renovated and rented through the AirBnB platform have returned to long-term rentals. and their owners are now placing higher demands on tenants. “
The President of the Panhellenic Network E-Real Estates also noted that the price of a studio apartment in Attica starts from 260 euros and can reach 400 euros.
