After their approximately five-month hiatus due to the lockdown regime, auctions and real estate sales resumed. Although there were several voices which spoke of their suspension, at least until the end of the year due to the general economic recession that prevails on the island, auction announcements have taken place, both on the online platform of the Banking Association and on the website of the Ministry of Interior.
Auctions published on the online platform
A total of 20 auctions have been posted on the platform so far (last updated on 08/09/2020 14:57:08), with the main volume of these (10) concerning fields and their reserved prices ranging between € 1,000 and € 741,475. Next in line are the plots (5), with the minimum reserved price amounting to € 57,600 and the maximum to € 380,800. The remaining 5 properties, which are auctioned, concern: parking space (with a reserved price of € 100,000), a house (the reserved price of € 268,375), two plots with a building (the reserved price of € 195,700 and € 595,850), and a shop (reserved price € 118.150 ) respectively.

Generally speaking, the settlement of Non-performing Loans, even before the outbreak of the pandemic, was one of the immediate priorities of the banks and the Government. Following the lockdown due to Covid-19, banks saw the risk of NPLs increase, as non-payment of installments due to the inability of creditors implies an increase. The moratorium on installments, although inevitable, seems very likely to contribute to the aggravation of the problem of NPLs, a fact which, through auctions, banking institutions seem to be trying to reduce.
