One Athens resident, who gave his name only as Vassilis, had almost given up finding a buyer for his home last year when a minivan pulled up outside his maisonette and a Chinese family of four got out. A day later, he got an offer. "They didn't see the house again. We went and got a down-payment, and everything was set in motion," he said. Carrie Law, Chief Executive of, a Chinese website for global real estate, said inquiries about Greece doubled in the first quarter of 2018 and jumped three-fold in the second. "It is a dramatic growth," she said, reports Channel NewsAsia (29 October 2018).
