GreekPropertyExchange.com, one of Greece’s premier property portals, has filmed the pilot, and is set to premiere the first half hour episode of ‘Hellenic Home Hunting™’ (HHH) in early 2012; the reality-style TV show is aimed at foreign investors who are looking to buy property in Greece.
The idea for the show was inspired by the need to better communicate the process of searching, viewing and buying real estate in Greece and to address the obstacles often presented during the actual buying process.
The first installment will feature a couple from Canada, looking to invest in a summer home in Stoupa, Messinia, Greece. Their first step was to enlist a real estate agent from GreekPropertyExchange.com, and within what seemed like no time at all, found themselves on an house hunting adventure with the real estate agent, camera crew, show host and GPE representatives, on the beautiful coast of Stoupa.
The camera crew was on hand to capture the meeting between the real estate agent and the couple, the viewings of the properties, and the final decision they made. The pilot episode is set to be broadcasted on Greek cable TV (not determined yet) in early 2012, followed by targeted webisode releases through the GreekPropertyExchange.com website.
“Hellenic Home Hunting has been a dream concept we have been flirting with even before GreekPropertyExchange.com was officially launched in 2010” said Georgios Stroumboulis, Founder of GPE. “We are passionate about what Greece has to offer to the world and are aggressive in finding creative ways to better communicate that on a global scale to potential visitors and investors. We fully understand the drastic economic crisis going on in Greece right now and are aware of the all the potential negatives with launching this ambitious project during the crisis. With that said, we also know that now, more than ever, we need to contribute in any way we can to help rebuild the reputation of Greece as a stable and viable nation for tourism and real-estate investment.”
GreekPropertyExchange.com plans on working with Greek cable television networks, international media outlets and it is looking to partner with potential sponsors to help broadcast this innovative concept and positive showcase of Greece to a broader audience.
