Except they can’t. A stagnant UK property market means they’re going nowhere – but now help is at hand!
The island of Crete has always been popular for holidays. Now it’s attracting the attention of Skiers due to its fantastic weather with 320 days of sunshine a year and no freezing cold winters. That’s a big saving on the energy costs you pay in the UK. There’s no council tax, which saves a thousand or so, and eating locally grown produce is not only better for you, it’s cheaper too! A couple can live comfortably in Crete on a pension of £10,000 a year. Just compare that to the UK!
However, there’s a big fly in the ointment preventing Skiers from enjoying this brighter lifestyle. The UK property market is in the doldrums, preventing many from selling their house, which they need to do in order to buy a home in Crete. Most people have sufficient to put down a deposit, but need the money from their house sale in the UK to pay the balance. In today’s market there’s no knowing when that will be.
Snobby Homes is a leading property developer in western Crete. Their Marketing Director, Mike Saunders says, “We’ve seen people devastated, having fallen in love with a development but unable to proceed because they cannot sell their house in the UK. Our Helping Hand scheme is very simple, it allows buyers to realize their dream now - and there’s absolutely no risk.”
Get a feel for the quality and see the specification of a Snobby show house and check out locations where Snobby are building. If you fall in love, then a Purchase Agreement is prepared, which is a legal quotation, confirming specification, plot and freezing the build price for either 1 or 2 years. Within this deed you have the legal right to delay construction until you have sold your house in the UK, which means you’re always ahead of the game. You don’t pay a penny more, there are no stage payments and the balance due is only paid when your new home is complete.
What’s more when your lawyer pays over your deposit, Snobby transfers ownership of the land into your name, so your money is never at risk.
Says Saunders, “Our Helping Hand scheme means you can fall in love with a plot and without any pressure, realize your dream, secure in the knowledge that you’re in absolute control.”
Snobby Homes have several small developments along the cost of western Crete. They are proud of their reputation of building quality houses with a luxury specification - the lowest price in Crete for new build detached homes. What’s more Snobbys are sold at an all-inclusive price which means you know precisely what to budget for, whereas all other builders and agents add on many thousands extra, on top of the house price, to pay for taxes, legal fees and purchase costs.
