@Vas Shame on you ! Your comments about marina are unacceptable. And you have no idea of the hardshiships people ib Greece are going through. I guess you have a wealthy family . So, go on visiting nice pkaces, and let poor people alone.

I added prices for the purchase of property at 190 sm and 140 sm - this was an error as I meant 1900 sm and 1400 sm. Your data quality checker picked it up, but I could not see how to correct the error. Those numbers were an error.

Prices for property were going up before the pandemic, so we will be watching pricing for the next year or two after the pandemic.

I just read two opinion, 180 degree between them,
So which one should I believe?
Or may be both opinions are right,

Actually rent is much cheaper than mentioned in here, basically you can easily find a 3 bedroom apartment outside of city centre (30-40 mins on public transport) for just 200-250€ + around 50-70€ on electricity water and etc. (but may be higher because it depends on your area and how old is apartment), other mentioned prices looks true.
