residential Market News: Spanish Real Estate Intelligence

Property prices keep rising in Thessaloniki

In 2019 the Thessaloniki real estate market started to rise. In the center of the city there is already a shortage of available properties and large increases in rental prices. There is strong interest in land plots in the eastern suburbs, heralding a further increase in building activity in 2020.

Especially in the city center and in the neighboring areas over the last two years there has been a significant increase in rental prices, which in the center exceeds 40%. This is attributed not only to the exploitation of old apartments through short-term rental platforms, but also to NGOs, which have rented apartments to host refugees. Increase in prices and lack of real estate is also recorded in areas between the center and the eastern suburbs.

Forecasts for 2020 speak of continuing the upward trend, with the main characteristic being the shift in buyers' interest in newly built homes.

According to the BoG's data for the first nine months of 2019, there was a remarkable growth rate of apartment prices which reached 7.6% in the wider Thessaloniki region. This recovery was primarily a result of the investment interest in buying older apartments, and turning them into short-term lease rentals.
