Why a property in Chania?

Many people dream about living in Chania, Crete. The region is beautiful, the weather is nice, and the scenery is iconic, to say the least. However, the property values in Chania are also known as being some of the highest in the country. What are the advantages and disadvantages to owning property in Chania? People looking to own property in Chania Prefecture often ask this question in trying to decide which side of the region to purchase property. The following information shows some of the most critical factors to owning a property – living in Chania.

Why good - qualitative properties for sale in Chania are rare?

NOT ENOUGH HOUSING

One of the reasons that property prices in Chania and other cities across Crete are higher than other areas in Greece is because there is not enough properties (especially residential properties and apartments) to go around.

The result is a disparity between supply and demand. The construction industry in Greece has been severely hit by the financial crisis of recent years.

During the first nine months of 2019, the total number of construction permits rose by 10.8% to 14,5 units from the same period last year, according to Hellenic Statistical Authority.

But it remains far below the 70,000 to 80,000 permits issued annually from in 2004 to 2007. According to the state authorities, the prefecture of Chania needs to build every year a number or residential properties in order to keep up with demand. However, Chania has only managed to build just a few properties over the past 1-2 years.

While many factors contribute to the failure to keep up with high demand for residential properties in Chania, one of the biggest obstacles is a lack of available land.

While Chania is the second bigest city in Crete, the availability of plots with building permits are limited. Nearly every nook and cranny of the city has been used up. However, other areas near the city of Chania, like Apokoronas, Akrotiri, Platanias are leading the property investment plans from domestic and foreign investors.

GROWING DEMAND FOR HOUSING

Not only is there not enough housing to go around but many property buyers and investors are trying to cram into urban areas. The area of Chalepa, Platanias, Kounoupidiana and some other surrounding suburbs, are the fastest-growing areas in Chania.

Moreover, Airbnb has effectively created a new category of rental housing in Chania. This new category — called ‘short-term rentals’.

It is obvious, that short-term rentals may also impact the housing shortage in Chania by offering a more lucrative alternative or a more flexible living arrangement to listing a unit on the long-term rental market.

With an average price of €68 per night across Chania, it would not be a hustle for some landlords to evict a tenant for the financial benefits of entering the sharing economy, right?

A recent paper from ARENCORES research team indicated that, in 2018, almost half of Airbnb listings were mainly clustered in seven neighbourhoods, where rents increased a third more quickly than the city of Chania average. A wider study suggested a 10% increase in Airbnb listings led to a 0.7% increase in rents and a 0.9% increase in house prices.

How to Find Properties for Sale in Chania

There are no secrets or special tips to search and identify incredible real estate deals in the property market of Chania

This section includes how to squeeze property sellers for info, doing your own research, hidden costs to be wary of, a checklist, plus tips on buying off-market properties.

However, there is one problem that comes when realtors use the same strate strategies for each property. They continue using these strategies and tactics which are the exact same strategies their competition is using but they somehow hope for or expect better results.

Let’s Dive in.

Properties for sale in Chania - How to find properties - Tips and Guides

Why a property in Chania?

Many people dream about living in Chania, Crete. The region is beautiful, the weather is nice, and the scenery is iconic, to say the least. However, the property values in Chania are also known as being some of the highest in the country. What are the advantages and disadvantages to owning property in Chania? People looking to own property in Chania Prefecture often ask this question in trying to decide which side of the region to purchase property. The following information shows some of the most critical factors to owning a property – living in Chania.

Discover Incredible Real Estate Deals in Chania

1. Use the right property finding sites

Now there’s a plethora of property search websites with properties around Chania. But remember, asking prices are often wildly optimistic, showing what the seller desires, not what they will really get.

So ask yourself: do properties listed where you want to buy stay around for a while, or are they snapped up? Is there a steady supply of the type of property (residntial or commercial) you’re thinking of buying, or are they few or far between?

We strongly suggest to visit Chania Real Estate and ARENCORES to identify the property of your preference.

2. Networking

Networking is arguably the best strategy in the real estate world to identify properties, and that holds true with off market properties also. You may find that networking becomes easier with time and practice, so don’t be afraid to put yourself out there.

3. Builders & Contractors

In addition to real estate agents, builders and contractors are good friends to have if you’re an investor looking to find property deals. Local builders are usually “in the know” about properties for sale.

4. Be the first . . . or the last

In real estate, often the old adage holds true: The early bird gets the worm.

Oftentimes, it’s not the highest offer for a property that gets accepted, it’s simply the first offer. Therefore, if you are looking for a great deal in Chania, be quick about it! Get the information of the real estate agent, sign the property viewing agreement so you can jump at any property right away. In addition you should have your real estate agent set you up with automatic email alerts notifying you of any new property that hits the market.

Then, don’t delay — check it out quickly, and make an offer the same day if possible.

Conversely, another way to find great deals is to look for properties that have been on the market for a long time. Those property owners – possibly – are far more willing to sell for a discount, because they are tired of holding on to that property and will entertain almost any offer.

5. Look at a lot of deals

You often have to kiss a lot of frogs to find the prince!

Whether you are looking to buy an investment property in Chania, purchase a residential property for yourself or buy real estate for another reason, remember: You make your money when you buy. If you want to have immediate equity in your property, which can help you build wealth in the future, or save you in case of an economic turndown, you must find great real estate deals from trusted resources.

The official website of the Chania Real Estate professionals – SYMENOCH (ΣΥΜΕΝΟΧ) is a place where you can discover a plethora of properties from authorized real estate agents.

6. Check what’s being built (or planned) in the area

Will that sea view in Apokoronas replaced by a high-rise in a couple of months? Ask an engineer from ARENCOS to provide you with such critical information. Check before you put in an offer.

7. Squeeze sellers and agents for info

Before putting in an offer to the estate agent on any property you’ve viewed, ask as many questions as possible – and get important answers in writing – if possible.

How many viewings has it had?

How many offers has it had?

How long has it been on the market?

How long is the lease (if it has one)?

Have there been any neighbour disputes?

Why are the vendors moving and are they sure they want to sell now?

What renovations have been done?

Search for Off-Market Properties for Sale in Chania

If you plan to buy a property in Chania, you’ve probably come across the term ‘off-market’ during your research. If you’re unsure of what off-market property buying (and selling) means, then this chapter is for you!

To put it simply, off-market properties aren’t advertised on the open market. Typically, when a vendor confirms a listing with a real estate agent, it can take approximately up to two weeks to compile all the marketing tools, such as signboards, agreements, professional photos, and the necessary information to load into the property portals. While the property is for sale, until everyone knows about it, it’s technically ‘off-market’.

Can you find a property to buy in Chania which does not appear online?

Absolutely yes. And there are some truly unique properties over there.

Off-Market Properties in Chania? Do they really exist?

How buying or selling off-market works

In most instances, to buy (or sell) a property off-market in Chania (and anywhere in the world) involves building strong relationships with dedicated and professional real estate agents servicing the area of your interest.

From a property buyer’s perspective, seeking off-market properties in Chania requires close and regular contact with local agents to ensure you know about these properties before they appear on the market. Agents need to have a clear understanding of the type of property you are looking and your criteria, requirements and budget.

For example, you might require a one bedroom apartment in Chania city that comes with an allocated space to park your car. If you know what off-market properties are available, you can avoid waste your time in researching and visiting properties that are not fulfill your criteria.

At times, the off-market process can be characterized as passive. You may miss out on your dream home or plot in Chania, Crete if you’re not registered with the right real estate agent. But what if you could be more proactive in your off-market house-hunting approach?

How to Choose the Right Property in Chania

There are some important factors to think about when choosing the right property for your investment. Here are our top tips for choosing a property to buy in Chania, from the sea views to the oft-overlooked importance of parking.

To avoid an unfortunate scenario, property buyers will need to think carefully and weigh all of their options. After considering all of these factors, you’ll be well-prepared to choose a property, commercial or residential that feels like your dream property today and for years to come.

Tips & Suggestions

What should I look for my next property?

Price: first and foremost, you need a property that you can afford. There’s no sense in deciding that you must have four bedrooms when the most you could afford in your market is two. You don’t need to search for a swimming pool with sea views when your budjet is limited. Do a little bit of research around what the current property market looks like, and then think about the down payment size and your own current finances.

Location: the location of the property you go for is key to the property value or for attracting the right kind of tenants. Bear in mind the distance to the Chania International Airport, schools, supermarkets and shops, public transport links, and even a gas station, as being closer to these things is likely to raise your property’s appeal. If you want to buy and then let out to students, being nearby their university (Kounoupidiana, Akrotiri area) is important to consider.

Type of building: choosing between a small apartment and a house can significantly influence your preferences. Thnk very carefully before making a choice.

New/old build: new builds can be easier and less costly to maintain, and they might have a broader appeal than old builds. However, old builds often have more character and style – and they can sometimes be cheaper to buy.

Layout: different interior layouts will suit different people – for example, house shares generally benefit from large communal spaces as well as private space for your guests – if any. However, families might prefer homes with storage options and an open space for young children and close proximity to schools.

Outdoor space: having an outdoor area, whether it’s a terrace or a garden, can be a big plus for you as a property buyer, but if you’re targeting to buy a property and then start looking for tenants (students or young professionals) who might not have the time to maintain it, it could be a luxury too far.

Fittings and fixtures: to reduce unnecessary expenditures you should look for a property with the basics all up to code, such as kitchen, bathroom, elevator – otherwise this could mean a lot of spending before you can even get tenants in.

Maintenance: keep an eye out for already present damage to any property you view, as things like moisture, mould, leaks, or structural issues could result in more costs in the future – as well as possible legal action if you don’t carry out the required maintenance. ARENCOS can provide you dedicated services for such critical matters.

Resale value: thinking further ahead, you may decide that you want to sell your property for a profit. While no one can predict the property market and market trends, it may be something to keep in mind.

Eco-friendly: more and more people are looking for greener residential and commercial properties for sale in Chania – taking steps to ensure the property you purchase is eco-friendly, or at least has the potential to be.

Parking: It might not always be a priority, but a property with a parking, especially in the city center (Tzanakaki Street, Sfakion Street, Iroon Polutecheniou Street, Andrea Papanadreou, Nearhou Street etc).

Light: when you’re viewing properties, it can be useful to check a place out at different times of day, as this will tell you how it looks in different light. It might be bright and sunny in the morning or early afternoon, but if it starts to look a little gloomy once night falls it could downgrading your preferences and desires.

1. Set a (realistic!) budget

Calculate early on how much money you can realistically spend, leaving enough funds for renovations and maintenance. Decide whether you want to pay more for a property in the Prefecture of Chania with long-term capital growth potential, or buy a cheaper house that promises healthier rental yields (income as a percentage of the property value, with 4-8 per cent plus counting as good) but may not earn you as much when you sell.

2. Research average asking prices on property portals

Investigate the area’s key stats on Chania Real Estate. Click on a the area of interest (Apokoronas, Akrotiri, Chania, Kissamos), then on the local information tab. There you will be shown the average asking price for the properties, including how it has changed over time, as well as the number of properties currently available in each region. This should give you a good idea of the area’s investment potential and the market trends of the Chania property market.

Advanced Search for Properties in Chania

Special amenities and property features play a critical role while choosing a property.

In real estate, amenities are features such as location, outlook or access to a park, national road, view or the like, which enhance the desirability of real estate asset and which contribute to the pleasure and enjoyment of the owners and visitors.

There is a strong connection between the quality of social infrastructure and the well being of the new residents of any project.

So without further ado, let’s dive right into the tips.

Properties for sale in Chania - How to discover off-market properties for sale in Chania - Advanced Tips

Advanced Search & Features For the Ideal Property in Chania

There’s an inventory of basic amenities a good property contains. However, there’s also other features that can enhance owners experience and elevate it from normal to special. It’s always advisable to throw in a few ‘wow’ feature extras, property buyers love unique elements and little touches.

Special Features & Amenities

Once you specify the requirements and needs for your next property in Chania, you can start thinking about additional features that you’d like it to have.

Perhaps you want a large storage room to store your tools and garden equipment, an outdoor heated jacuzzi, or a stone fence in yard to establish the maximum privacy and security — or a balcony where you can lay out and soak up some sun on weekends.

You should also think about the ideal heating and cooling setup in any residential property you buy, and it’s also wise to consider the school district (because even if you don’t have kids, it’s smart to keep in mind any buyers who could purchase your home from you in the future — they might have kids).

Some of these special features might be “nice-to-haves,” and you might also decide that some are absolute necessities for your next investment in Chania, Crete.

Spend some time talking to your real estate agent before you make any final decisions about necessities, though — it’s quite possible that some of the things on your “must-have” list can be easily added once you move in.

Focus on What You Can't Change

It’s really easy to fall in love with one part of a residential property and allow it to cloud a truer vision of your future.

Maybe that modern kitchen is perfect, but if there aren’t enough bedrooms with wardrobes or bathrooms in the property, then you’ll regret the purchase soon after you move in.

Try to look beyond trims and finishes to focus on the aspects – details of the property that are fixed and unchanging, like the lot size,  roof type or the location of the property.

If you’re touring a potential property with ARENCORES, give us your list of must-haves and ask our agents if the property could fit that list with a little bit of work.

Our real estate professionals can help you figure out if a property that you think is just fine today might actually be your dream property in disguise.

You can change out carpeting for hardwood floors and renovate a kitchen over time, but if your heart is set on waterfront property in Almirida or Platanias… that might take a few thousand years to manifest, and you don’t have that long.

What you Should Avoid Before Buying a Property in Chania

Many Chania property buyers are surprised to discover just how many ways they can mess up a property purchase.

You may have got your pre-approval, found a property you loved and made an offer. But if you want to avoid messing up the transaction process, you will need to be extremely careful until the property sale agreement has closed.

Use the following tips to protect yourself and your property (residential or commercial) purchase. In fact, be sure to check out what you should do before buying this exceptional property.

Our tips will help you make the best buying decision possible. Use the following tips to protect yourself and your property purchase. In fact, be sure to check out what you should do before buying a property. This chapter will focus on the tips that will make the best buying decision possible.

Making mistakes is easy when you have never bought a property before. Avoid these mistakes to keep the stress out of your life!

Properties for sale in Chania - How to discover off-market properties for sale in Chania - What you Should avoid

Do not Make these Mistakes

1. Asking price: Property availability, location, economic conditions, supply and demand can all affect the price. You as a buyer need to be price savvy because if that property purchase is going to earn you money, year on year, you have to make sure you pay a realistic price, and not an inflated one.

ARENCORES can advise you on reliable property prices in Chania and Rethymno, as official certified property valuers and real estate property experts.

2. Assuming every home’s price is negotiable: Don’t cock it up! Negotiation is a skill and saying the wrong thing could cost you. We’ve heard buyers say things like ‘I’d like to offer X but I’d be prepared to pay Y’… This is a serious mistake.

Sellers have also an expert in place, trained estate agent working for them. Moreover, sellers use different strategies when pricing their property. Sometimes it is priced with space for negotiations, but other times there is no space for negotiation because they are not desperate to sell.

3. Research & Structural Surveys: You need to assess the condition of the property you’re buying – if it’s brand new construction or nearly new. An older property may be worth spending the extra money on with a building or construction survey to guarantee peace of mind.

And this is the case for some exceptional properties in the Chania Old Town. There is also a plethora of some truly magnificent Venetian buildings and old Olive Mills which a Structural Survey should be taken place before any purchase agreement.

4. Passing on a great home early in the search because you think you’ll find something better: Some potential property buyers pass over some really exceptional properties in Chania early on in the search in the hope that they’ll find something better. This strategy almost never works. Property buyers should trust their instincts.

5. Waiting for the dream home: By all means have a checklist of desirable and essential needs, but you may have to compromise on dream home demands. You may well want that additional downstairs living space, but if it’s not there, think about extending or installing a bespoke garden office.

6. Getting distracted by the “flashy” details and ignoring the actual quality of a home: We’ve seen this many times.

It’s important not to be seduced by the icing on the cake. Ignore the icing and focus on the property – construction characteristics — the quality of the construction materials and the location.

Property buyers should pay attention to the lot and/or the building and thoroughly inspect the property. Many residential and commercial properties can be transformed to look pretty on the outside. Focus on the bones and structure — a deep dive will reveal the truth and one of the engineers of ARENCOS an help you on this.

Some property buyers focus too much on flashy things, like granite counters, french windows, large swimming pools and pergolas that often have many other problems or are in a bad location, and bypass properties that have been very well taken care of and are in a great location but aren’t recently renovated.

7. Limiting your search to a specific style of home: Understandable yes but not always achievable – Maria Gkika, a Chania real estate agent at ARENCORES said too many buyers limit their focus to a certain style of property.

“A home is where you make it and if it works for your personal way of living,” Maria said. “Not necessarily what it looks like on the outside world.”

8. Not seeing the true potential of a property: You know the scenario? You’ve found a property in Chania? Maria said many buyers don’t look at the “bones and potential” of a property and instead get “distracted by something immaterial such as bright colorful walls, old wardrobes or ugly kitchen cabinets.
