Ανησυχία ξενοδόχων: Πτώση πληρότητας και τιμών τον Ιανουάριο στην Αθήνα

Με μια αξιοσημείωτη πτώση της τάξης του – 8,7% στην Πληρότητα, του – 10,1% στο Έσοδο ανά Διαθέσιμο Δωμάτιο (RevPar) και του -1,8% στη Μέση Τιμή Δωματίου ξεκίνησε το 2019 για τα αθηναϊκά ξενοδοχεία (Ιανουάριος 2019, έναντι Ιανουαρίου 2018).

Ακόμη πιο εντυπωσιακό αποτελεί το γεγονός ότι η Αθήνα σημειώνει τη μεγαλύτερη πτώση πληρότητας και τη μεγαλύτερη πτώση RevPar

Στα 1,9 δισ. € ο τζίρος των βραχυχρόνιων μισθώσεων στην Ελλάδα

Στα 1,9 δισ. ευρώ εκτιμώνται τα ετήσια έσοδα από τις βραχυχρόνιες τουριστικές μισθώσεις κατοικιών στην Ελλάδα, σύμφωνα με μελέτη της Grant Thorton, που διενεργήθηκε για λογαριασμό του Ξενοδοχειακού Επιμελητηρίου Ελλάδος (ΞΕΕ) και παρουσιάστηκε πρόσφατα σε κεντρικό ξενοδοχείο της Αθήνας.

Το ποσό αυτό αντιστοιχεί περίπου στο 10% της ετήσιας τουριστικής δαπάνης στη χώρα μας και αφορά 126.000 κατοικίες που μισθώνονται, εκ των οποίων οι 76.000 είναι απολύτως ενεργές, ενώ στο μητρώο της Ανεξάρτητης Αρχής Δημοσίων Εσόδων, έχουν δηλωθεί μόλις 50.000. Τα δε μεγέθη των βραχυχρόνιων μισθώσεων, αυξάνονται με ετήσιο ρυθμό της τάξης του 25%!!!

Focus on Attica

From the sunny slopes of the Acropolis to the sunny shores of the up and coming Athens Riviera, there is a new buzz around greater Athens these days. Home to almost four million people – more than a third of the population Greece’s largest province, Attica, is resurgent after bearing the brunt of the country’s almost decade long financial crisis. In the past two years in particular, greater Athens has seen a revival in everything from city center night life to hotel development to new hi-tech start-ups.

Development of the Athens Riviera is taking off with the redevelopment of the former Athens airport, a mega-project that

Golden Visa program growing rapidly

Greece’s special Golden Visa investment and residen- cy program has soared since the start of the year, reflecting growing investor confidence in the country after it successfully exited its third financial support program this summer.According to recent data, 3,154 residency permits have been issued under the program through the end of July – more than all of 2017 combined – making Greece’s Golden Visa initiative among the most popu- lar such programs in Europe. Applications are up 40% from a year ago and Enterprise Greece has been helping to promote the program, most recently with its participation at the International Citizenship Investment Property Fair in Cairo.

Launched in 2013 during the depth of Greece’s economic crisis, the Golden Visa program has come to prominence in the past two years amid waves of new investors from China, Russia and Turkey, among other places. Drawn by Greece’s growth prospects, political stability, quality of life and attractive asset prices, the Golden Visa has surpassed other investment and residency schemes in countries like Cyprus or Portugal.

The program grants a permanent residence permit – and access to 26 Schengen-area countries to individuals and their families who invest a minimum of €250,000 in fixed assets, such as real estate, in Greece. The program was recently amended to include investments of €400,000 or more in liquid financial assets as well. Golden Visa permit holders have invested an estimated €1.5 billion in Greek assets so far.

Housing Market Prospects

Domestic demand for housing is expected to be sluggish, since: (i) household disposable income is not expected to increase significantly in the near future; (ii) the unemployment rate is forecast to remain in double digit figure until 2030 (according to the European Commission, the 2015 Ageing Report, January 2017); and (iii) the extraordinary tax imposed on real estate property looks set to become permanent.

Given that domestic demand for housing is not expected to recover soon, it is worth exploring the potential demand originating from abroad.

Chart 22 shows that, in terms of value, housing in Greece is attractive compared to other Mediterranean countries though not to South – eastern European ones. However, according to the Global Property Guide, rental yields remain moderate and are lower than those in neighbouring countries such as Romania , Bulgaria and Cyprus.

In order to attract foreign investors, Greece offers a residence permit (valid for five years with the possibility of renewal) to non – Europe an citizens who buy a house worth more than €250,000 . In addition, in 2010 the real estate transfer tax was reduced from 10% to 3% on the property’s fair value. The above incentives resulted in partially revamping residential investment interest in 2016, with FDI for residential property increasing to €250 million from €186 million in 2015.

Overall, the recovery of the housing market in Greece is largely related to improving the investment climate and reducing tax burdens . Still, given that domestic demand for housing is expected to remain subdued, residential investment is not expected to support GDP growth to the degree it did before the economic crisis. At the same time, any demand for housing coming from abroad is directly related to the restoration of confidence in the economy.
