Acquiring Real Estate in Cyprus

One key thing to note about Cyprus is that it is split into two factions: Southern Cyprus is Greek while Northern Cyprus is Turkish. Despite this division, both sides of the island are recognized as part of the European Union.

Given this division, potential buyers must be sure to consider which part they would prefer to reside in. Typically, expatriate real estate investors in Cyprus tend to purchase property on the Southern side. 

In terms of acquiring real estate, expatriates looking to purchase property in Cyprus should ask themselves several questions before doing so.

  • Are you looking for a holiday home in Cyprus or permanent residency?
  • What region would you like to purchase property in?
  • What are the benefits of purchasing real estate in Cyprus?
