Hi All ,
As Susanna states , reasonably priced properties sell quickly , moreso the older village type properties .
The luxury villa type new properties over the € 500,000 mark are very , very slow in moving . The location and design / fittings have to be A1 to even stand a chance of selling .
People looking for property in that range think , Hey , we can buy the land and build for € xxxxxx less than that . What they do not take into account is the length of time / stress / visits / research / paperwork / accountancy / etc . that actually go into building your own place from scratch . Fine , if you have 3 years to waste .
