As of February 2022, we had reported that this year in terms of the short-term rental sector and especially high-standard tourism (villas with private and / or communal pool) will return sooner than mass tourism and will exceed the levels of 2019.
At the same time, we had mentioned that there will be a rapid increase in road tourism, especially in tourist resorts of the Peloponnese but also in mainland destinations that emerged as a pandemic (Prefecture of Achaia, Prefecture of Ilia, Prefecture of Etoloakarnania and Epirus), destinations that are now recording of the dynamics of real estate on short-term leasing platforms.
All the above optimistic messages for this summer, are fully in line with the recent data of AirDNA where it records an increase in demand for real estate registered on short-term rental platforms by 232% in the summer months June - August, compared to the corresponding period of 2021.

Due to the rapid increase recorded this season in properties registered on short-term lease platforms, many landlords rushed to register their properties on short-term lease platforms in order to increase their income. to share this year's increased costs in the family budget. At the same time, the rapid increase that is recorded, feeds the investment in holiday homes, especially in the popular tourist destinations of our country.
