Based on the study, properties listed for lease in Greece over the same period exceeded 170,500, of which nearly 137,500, i.e. 81 percent, were leased at least once.
Independent lodgings accounted for 1.08 billion euros of the total, with the average vacancy estimated at 53%, and an average per diem rate of 146 euros.
