What is a housing rental?

A rental property is a dwelling that you rent instead of buying. It can be an apartment, a house, a room, or a townhouse. It is a flexible solution that allows you to live in a specific area without committing to purchasing a property.

When you rent a property, you pay a monthly rent depending on the size, location, and other factors. When renting, it's crucial to read the lease agreement thoroughly, so you know what is included in the rent and what obligations you have as a tenant.

There are many advantages to renting a property. Firstly, it can be cheaper compared to other forms of housing, meaning you can save money and spend it on other things. Secondly, it can be easier to move when you rent, as you don’t need to sell your property before moving. Thirdly, in many rental properties, you receive assistance from the landlord or the property company if there are issues with the rental, such as burst water pipes, blocked drains, etc.

All in all, renting is a good solution for those who want flexibility and do not want to commit to one place. A rental can be a cheaper solution than other forms of housing, and it is easy and flexible to move again when you rent, as you do not need to find a buyer, but simply need to terminate the lease and move to a new property when the rental period expires.

There are many different types of properties one can rent, including:

Apartment for rent in Greece

An apartment is a private dwelling in a multi-story building. Renting an apartment can be a good choice if you want to be close to the city, have access to public transport, and live close to other people. Read more about apartment for rent by clicking the link.

Find a home for rent with the right size and layout

When you are looking for a new rental property, it is crucial that it can accommodate both your current and future needs. In other words, the rental property should be spacious enough for your current daily activities and plans you have for the near future. Are you expecting to expand your family, plan to live in the rental property for many years, or need space for a subtenant for a period?

The layout and floor plan of a home can significantly impact whether the property can meet your needs. Even if a rental property seems too small, optimizing the use of space through layout and good planning can often resolve this issue.

Nice to know when you are searching for rental housing in Greece

Greece, heaven on earth and all self proclaimed hedonist travelers’ headquarters. Greece is known for many idealistic and aesthetic reasons, such as clear blue water, ancient ruins covered in olive trees and charming small villages on coastlines in all colours.

Greece is a common destination spot for tourists from all over the globe, yet it has a lot more to offer than just white chalked buildings and beaches.

Greece is a country located in Southeastern Europe, with a population of approximately 10,700,000 (2020). Greece consists of a larger mainland bordering Albania, North Macedonia, Bulgaria and Turkey, and a large number of scattered islands in the Mediterranean Sea. Combined, Greece covers an area of 131,957 sq. km.

The history of Greece dates way back, and the earliest evidence of life can be traced back to around 270,000 BC, and was found in a cave in the Greek province of Macedonia (not to be confused with the country North Macedonia). Besides this early sign of life, Greece has a rich history with events that have had importance for the rest of the world. The western culture is even said to have roots in this area of Europe. Greece has been under many rules through the time, however perhaps the most influential and noteworthy were the early Greeks, who introduced the world to many cultural events, like theater and the Olympics.

Greece is still to this day the country with the most theatres in the world.

In a country of such rich history, you’re bound to have some relics of the past left behind, and in Greece's case, architecture is the key word. Greek architecture is in many ways praised and respected in the world, and has inspired millions of buildings across the world later on with the characteristic design details, like pillars, intricate detail and clean symmetry. Today Greece is home to 18 Unesco World Heritage sites, where many of them are preserved constructions from ancient Greek times. 

So go watch a thrilling drama at one of the outdoor theatres, get an insight of your destiny at the grandeur of Delphi or encounter the people carved in stone dredged up from the Aegean.

The nature in general is breathtaking as well, which is understandable in a land covered by mountains and Mediterranean coastline.

Apart from stunning architecture and ancient sites, Greece is home to exceptionally tasty cuisine. You probably know many of the dishes originally from here, like tzatziki and moussaka. Besides this the main ingredient in the Greek kitchen is loads of fresh seafood, which you can find straight from the boats in the villages’ docks and harbors.
