Ancient City of Polyrinia

Kissamos Property Guide - Ancient Polirinia

Ancient City of Polyrinia is a magical place to visit especially in springtime. Visitors can park at the roadside at the start of the homonymous village and walk through the magnificent settlement. There are some fairly interesting structures, to be seen and it is worth a diversion down the steps to visit the lovely church which has been carved out of the rock.

Despite that there is not a great deal to see in terms of remains – the whole area is a mass of wildflowers with a truly magnificent 360 degree scenery. On a clear day the views are spectacular: to the North, Kissamos, with the peninsula and sea beyond; to the South, the snow-capped White Mountains and great views in every other direction too.

About Kissamos

Kissamos exudes an unpolished, almost gritty, air compared to other north-coast towns and sea-side resorts near Chania. This is not a place given entirely over to tourism. There are two wonderful beaches, the sandy Mavros Molos in the west and the pebbly Telonio beach to the east. Kissamos is the ideal choice if you want to remind yourself of the life in the countryside. Be inspired by the beauty of Kasteli’s waterfront promenade and spectacular coastline, and be amazed by the stars in its clear night skies.

The only noise you hear is the song of the birds while you will admire the spectacular sea view during sunrise or sunset. Visitors can also enjoy the nearby magnificent beaches of Balos, Falassairna and Elafonisi and last but not least can admire and taste the authentic Cretan cuisine. Kissamos is, after all, a small cosmos swarming with beauties and treasures that you will probably need a lifetime to discover!

Kissamos Property Guide – Buyers Questions

Kissamos Property Guide

Seven questions property buyers ask before buying a property.
For more information please read our Buying a Property in Chania Guide.

Kissamos Property Guide – Helping you Find the Perfect Home

Generally speaking, some real estate agents might not feel happy to discuss the facts. However, receiving a reliable answer will provide you an insight into how really excited they are to sell the property. Let’s say, a property owner moving to another area of the country for work. In this case, the owner will be more likely to sell the property faster than someone who is just moving to another property of different size. In this case, you could even negotiate the selling price due to the urgency of the circumstances.

However, if you are still wondering “What are the costs involved in buying?” or “Apart from the property, what other costs should you budget for?” please read our buying a property in Chania Guide.

This could be the most significant question you ask a real estate agent. The duration of the property in the market provides a magnificent insight concerning the desirability and attractiveness of the property. If the property has been on the market for a half of year or more, ask the agent about the initial selling price, location or possible structural and legalization problems.

However, if you are still wondering about the “Property Legalization Law” or the “Spatial Planning Permits & Environmental Permits in Chania” please read our buying a property in Chania Guide.

Issuing of energy performance certificate is a prerequisite for the property transfer or rental of buildings and has become mandatory since 9.1.2011. To prepare a Deed of Conveyance for any real property transaction Deed, the notaries public or solicitors are obliged by law to cite the EPC’s reference number in the real estate contract and submit an official copy of that document to the authorities. Buyers should be aware of the need for an up-to-date EPC.

However, if you are still wondering about what exactly the EPA involves you can read our detailed article on the Energy Performance Certificate. For more information on the “Property Legalization Law” or the “Spatial Planning Permits & Environmental Permits in Chania” please read our Buying a Property in Chania Guide.

If the property has been on the market for several months, you can propose a new price below the current price. However, this is not always an effective strategy because you never know how low a seller is willing to go. Since there are different motivations for selling the result of the negotiation as- always– is uncertain. Nevertheless, if the seller is willing to negotiate, you could luck out and achieve a magnificent deal.

For more tips about how to negotiate a property please have a look to our Buying a Property in Chania Guide. Moreover, you can always visit our Real Estate Chania website for all the latest Chania real estate trends, house prices and news.

If you find a property you really want to buy, then do not hesitate to ask your real estate agent whether the property seller is ready or not to reduce the selling price. A real estate professional will definitely provide you this critical information even before you make a deal.  However, the most important is your enthusiasm and high willing to acquire this property from the outset.

Many buyers question the importance of property inspections (especially homes). However ARENCORES has the tools and professionalism to take the weight off your shoulders.
