Most people have their secondary residence in their home country

The recent survey “At home in Europe”, conducted by RE/MAX Europe in 16 European countries, shows that one in six Europeans owns a secondary residence, mostly for holidays (33.7 %) and weekends (23.9%) and located in their own country. The country with the highest proportion of second home owners is Greece: almost one third of Greeks owns a secondary residence and likes to spend their holidays there, followed by Polish (25.1%) and Turkish (24.8%) citizens. By contrast, only 5.4% of Germans stated that they have a second home. 8.7 % own a secondary residence for work purposes, and nearly twice as many men than women.
