The number of applications grows up compare to 2017 by 46% shows us a real interest in real estate abroad for Chinese people. 

The main reason is the price, due to the 2009 crisis the Greek market falling, price decreasing by 50% of their original value, attracting a lot of foreign investors around the world.
