Buying a property in Greece remotely.

As a result of the large-scale development of technologies and sales expansion, arose a need for non-traditional methods of property purchase, such as remote purchase method through various innovative technologies and upgraded legal services. The constant development of communication relations has led to the simplification of the acquisition of real estate from a distance and simultaneously the registration of it.

Currently, there is progress in the field of distance real estate trading, which is caused by a number of events and the globalization process as a whole.

So, for the acquisition of real estate in Greece at a distance for a start you need to determine the real estate itself. In the event that you are looking for a property using the Internet, it is advisable to do this on trusted and reliable websites, in order to avoid unnecessary waste of time and very possibly money. If you trust the real estate agent, the only thing you need is to make sure of his/her competence and ability to find the best real estate for you according to your request.

Once you have decided on the choice of the property and you are ready to purchase it, before you take any action, you need to hire a lawyer and consult with him/her, which can be done remotely of course.

For remote acquisition of a real estate, the buyer must sign a power of attorney at a notary public, where his lawyer or any third party will act as his authorized representative.
The power of attorney can be issued anywhere in the world and sent to Greece.

The lawyer is obliged to check the property for all legal burdens, prepare a full package of documents, check the availability and authenticity of all necessary documents of the seller, cooperate with a notary to draw up the final contract, correctly indicating the payment method, conducting the purchase and sale transaction with the transfer of ownership to the buyer.

Of course, not everyone will go to such a deal through a representative. Any skeptical buyer is very apprehensive about purchasing a property remotely. But it is worth noting that the right choice of the realtor, proxy, lawyer will completely eliminate the fact of risk.

With the correct interaction of the buyer, which has been built primarily on the trust, the buyer limits the risk zone. Modern communication tools make it easy to establish a fast and reliable connection, remotely and virtually, illuminating the buyer with all the property acquisition processes.

It is also worth knowing that after signing a contract for the purchase of real estate, the buyer’s lawyer protects the buyer from reselling the property to third parties during the process by registering the process in the local registry.

Remote real estate acquisition can be an excellent tool with a minimum of effort and cost. However, do not forget that the trust of such an important issue should be reasonable: you need to take the choice of proxies seriously, monitor the process of the transaction and after completion, get a full package of documents from the lawyer certifying your ownership.
