Property Prices in Skopelos Island, Greece

Property Prices in Skopelos Island, Greece

Only in recent years have people from outside Greece been purchasing property here and in general the Greek people are fairly new to the concept of selling property at all! In previous generations houses were usually kept within the family and if the family couldn't maintain their properties they often became ruins. This was accentuated by both rural depopulation and the world Diaspora of the Greek people and, although this situation has provided an opportunity to purchase some wonderful pieces of property today it has also left us with a situation where people are often not versed in the trading and pricing of houses and land.

To give an overview of the price range, however, is useful to those who are looking for property in Skopelos and we can say that a house in Skopelos Town can be as little as E40,000, an average of E150,000 for something that can be lived in straight away, or up to E300,000 for something special (and big) and, of course, as nearly all properties on the island are fairly unique, any variation of the above can occur. There are very special residences which appear very rarely which fetch prices up to 900,000!

Similarly land for building varies greatly by location ,aspect ,view and amenities and can be from E40,000 - E100,000 for a plot for one house on average and then for larger plots any multiples of the above.
