I have recently made an inquiry about a small property in Corfu. the prices initially look very reasonable, BUT there are so many additional costs to pay. VAT, Estate Agents, Notary, Transfer Tax (Stamp Duty) etc.
Now I could be wrong and I hope that I am but I calculated that a small place costing 44,000 Euros would actually cost out at over 61,000 Euros. thats a staggering 39% extra. Tell me its no so.
If anyone is interested I have built a small Excel spreadsheet so that all you have to do is put in the additional charge percentages and exchange and it works out the final price for you. Reality check time.
How do I do attachments in here?
