What is an apartment?

An apartment is a private dwelling in a multi-story building. It can be a good choice to rent an apartment if you want to be close to the city and have access to public transportation. It is also a good place to live if you want to be close to other people.

It is often cheaper to live in an apartment than in a house, but it also has some downsides. For example, there are often limitations on how much you can change in your apartment. Additionally, there are often restrictions on how much noise you can make.

As a tenant in an apartment, you have the right to inhabit the apartment and use the facilities in the property such as attic space and courtyard. You are responsible for keeping the apartment in reasonable condition, and you must pay your rent on time.

Some of the most common types are 1-bedroom apartments, 2-bedroom apartments, and 3-bedroom apartments. There are also larger apartments, such as 4-bedroom apartments, 5-bedroom apartments, and even up to six-bedroom apartments or more.

What are the benefits of renting a flat or studio in Greece?

There can be several good reasons to choose a rental apartment over other types of housing. Here are some of the most important:

  • Flexibility: It is often more flexible to own than to rent an apartment, making it easier to move as needed, for example, in connection with job changes or changes in personal circumstances.
  • No maintenance costs: As a tenant, you are typically not responsible for the maintenance of the property, which can save you both time and money.
  • Economically affordable: Renting an apartment often requires a smaller upfront financial investment compared to buying a home. Moreover, you are not tied to a mortgage.
  • Access to facilities: Many apartment complexes offer access to communal facilities such as courtyards, laundry rooms, common areas, etc., which might not necessarily be economically accessible if you owned your own home.
  • Easier to move in: Rental apartments are often ready for move-in, which makes the moving process faster and less cumbersome compared to the process of buying a home.
  • Lower financial risk: As a tenant, you are protected against depreciation in the property market, as you do not own the property.
  • Simpler insurance requirements: The insurance requirements for tenants are often simpler and less costly than for homeowners.

How do you find an apartment for rent in Greece?

Finding the right apartment generally requires good research and planning.

Start by defining your priorities, requirements, and needs - where should the apartment be located, how large should it be, what is your budget for rent, etc.

Once you know what kind of apartment you want, investigate the market for available ones to access a wide range of potential options.

Once you have identified the rental apartments you are interested in, contact the landlords to arrange a viewing. View several different apartments to have a good basis for comparison. Ask questions and take notes during the viewings. When you have found the apartment that best suits your desires and needs, contact the landlord immediately so that it doesn't get rented to someone else before you.

Find available apartments online in Greece

You can filter your search and create automatic search agents for apartment for rent, which notify you about new available rental apartments that match your criteria. This gives you the opportunity to be one of the first to contact the landlord - thereby increasing your chances of being the one who rents the apartment.

Find cheap apartments in Greece for rent

If you are looking for an economically affordable rental apartment, it requires extra effort on your part. You need to have many options to choose from, so you can select the cheapest rental apartment and negotiate the price with the landlord. You can achieve this by contacting as many landlords as possible: housing companies and property companies, administration companies, private landlords, real estate agents who facilitate rental apartments, etc.

Inform your network that you are looking for an apartment to rent, so they can assist you with the house hunting. Share your search on social media.

Once you have received offers from many different landlords, the next step is to negotiate the rental price. By keeping several options open and considering various landlords, you increase the chances of finding one who is willing to reduce the price to fit your budget. It is important that you indicate in your application that you would be a good and stable tenant, so the landlord sees an advantage in offering you a good rental price. If he is unwilling to reduce the price, he might agree to a lower deposit.

Choose a flat for rent in a well-maintained property

Your housing standard greatly affects your living standard. So when you are looking for an available apartment to rent, keep in mind that the home should be functional and situated in a well-maintained property with a high standard.

It is essential to ensure that the property's technical facilities are in good condition, including the heating system, ventilation, and plumbing. A reliable and maintained heating system along with a functioning ventilation system are essential to ensure a comfortable indoor climate for all residents.

It is also important that you check that the service providers who take care of the property’s maintenance – e.g., caretaker and cleaning service - maintain a high standard. Reliable and efficient service is central to ensuring a clean and inviting environment in the property.

Find flats in Greece with the right size and layout

When choosing the new apartment you want to rent, it is vital that you ensure that the apartment meets both your current and future needs. The apartment should have a size and room distribution that suits your current life situation, as well as any future changes during the time you plan to live in the apartment, such as family expansion, thoughts of moving abroad, and subletting, etc.

Be aware that the layout and floor plan can have a significant impact not only on the physical space but also on your daily quality of life. The right environment can make it easier to create a home where you feel comfortable. So also consider what decorating options you want to have when you move into the apartment.

Use your common sense when looking for an apartment to rent

When you rent a home, it is very important that you check the landlord before you transfer money to the landlord. Always get legal help to review your lease before signing. Get an inspection of the property, check the landlord's background and get documentation of the landlord's right to rent the property before you sign or transfer money to the landlord. Most importantly: use your common sense.

We have collected a number of tips on what you should pay attention to in this guide: Check the landlord before renting a home.

Nice to know when you are searching for apartment 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.
