However, the current economic situation in Cyprus is somehow more complex, while the credit worthiness of the country is starting to improve with the upgrade of the Banking institutions by the different credit rating firms. The real estate market is becoming more and more a secure investment opportunity, however, the difficulty of being financed is the main reason that affect demand and local property values.
The Government has undertaken various measures to enhance property demand. For example, incentives for visas/ passports, the reduction of transfer fees, no capital gains tax for properties bought until the end of 2016, encouragements for building coefficients and enforcement of title deed issue for trapped buyers.
