FYROM Interested in Purchasing Chalkidiki Property

After the Turks, who want to buy Greek islands in the Ionian and Aegean Sea, now FYROM citizens are interested in Chalkidiki.

On the front page of the Skopian newspaper “Dnevnik”on July 8th, an article is featured: “The “Macedonians will become owners of Chalkidiki” referring to the people from FYROM who want to buy real estates in the popular summer destination of Northern Greece. This is not due to the economic crisis but because in Greece, the law which put obstacles to citizens of non EU countries to buy real estates was amended. According to the article of the Skopian newspaper, this means that “people can obtain property in the region of the Aegean Macedonia and mainly in Chalkidiki and Thessaloniki”, using, in fact, the term “Aegean Macedonia” to describe the Greek region of Macedonia.
Until recently for security reasons there were restrictions concerning buying property in the border regions of Northern Greece and the islands of the Aegean Sea. However, these restrictions are now valid for specific regions of the country and not for the region of Chalkidiki and Thessaloniki.
