Nikolaos Koulocheris: Adapting to Changing Tides – Real Estate Investments in Greece and the Challenges Ahead
Nikolaos Koulocheris had the honor of leading a discussion featuring an impressive lineup of experts who delved deep into the “Critical Issues for Buying or Selling a Home.” The panel addressed the pressing challenges and strategies crucial for navigating the real estate market.
In his introductory remarks on the panel discussion about the most significant issues arising in real estate transactions, Nikolaos stated, “Following the end of the economic recession and the rapid growth of the real estate market, the profile of the interested investors has changed. Today, primarily foreign investors are involved, and the needs have evolved significantly. Companies are now predominantly engaged in these transactions, and financial aspects play a crucial role.”
Nikolaos concluded: “Fortunately for the Greek market, we were able to address the emerging needs, thanks to the expertise provided by experienced law firms and financial advisors. However, there is an existing situation that directly involves the country’s public entities, such as urban planning offices, tax authorities, archaeological services, and forest authorities. These processes cannot evolve swiftly, although efforts have been made, such as digitalization. The procedures have not been fully automated to an absolute extent.”
