Real Estate is a highly competitive industry that requires a lot of effort and knowledge in order to identify pieces of property that are of reasonable difficulty to promote based on their characteristics, especially during times where economic uncertainty and low activity decelerate the market to a stall.
Considering the current market state in Greece, the old ways of selling property based on market boom momentum are not working anymore. Area wide dramatic devaluations are becoming common and outdated property characteristics are insufficient in attracting interest especially as far as sustainability and functionality are concerned. As new market rules, state regulations, trends and technology bound property requirements emerge, the usage of innovative promotional methods, ad-hoc knowledge and deeper expertise are imperative in order to attract buyers and tenants while standing out from the competition and gaining an edge.

Effective since January 2015 in Greece, new legislation states that all buildings in Greece should have an electronic ID that contains their building permit papers including all modifications since they were first constructed. For new buildings permits the process is compulsory and will be part of the issuing process. Older buildings are given a 10 year deadline to submit the required information and receive an electronic ID while buildings that have been subject to “settlement” are given a 5 year period before the completion of their Electronic ID. Due to the complicated nature of the law and possible amendments each case needs to be examined independently. Clients are advised to contact Metrax and have their case examined by one of our engineers.
A valuable tool for effective property management is the Condition Report produced at the beginning of each contract through our Property Surveys service. Our experienced engineers offer detailed information of the exact condition of a property, accompanied by repairs/restoration advice, a cost effective maintenance schedule and reporting customization options formatted per property needs.
Through condition assessment reporting, we achieve cost mitigation and avoidance of unaccounted dilapidations and disputes while both property managers and their clients, are aware of any risks or costs associated with a lease in advance, leading to contracts that are based on technical due diligence and commonly accepted terms that both parties understand. In instances where disputes arise for the absence of a condition report or other reasons, Metrax can act as an independent third party facilitator through technical audits that produce the required data on which we base our legal advice for effective defense. Read our Legal Compliance section for more information on our services in this area and how we can help reach effective resolutions on time and at the lowest possible cost.
