RICS Cyprus Property index Q3 2016
|Published on: 16 May 2017|
RICS analysis of property prices in Cyprus as at 30/09/2016
During the third quarter of 2016 the Cyprus economy showed further signs of stability, with the economy’s performance being better than expected and tourism mildly outperforming forecasts. Unemployment remained at relatively high levels, on a downtrend to ca 13% (from the high levels of 17%).
Given prevailing economic conditions and the turbulence in Cyprus’ banking system, there were relatively few transactions during the quarter although volume was higher on a year on year basis.
Local buyers in particular were the most discerning as unemployment and high debt for locals maintained lack of interest. Furthermore, those interested are trying to access bank-finance.
The Property Price Index has recorded increases in almost all cities and asset classes, with significant increases being recorded in Larnaca area, whilst other cities are progressively bottoming out.
