Paphos property sales mark an 82% increase in July, in comparison to last year

12/08/2022

For the seventh consecutive month property sales in Cyprus reached a 14 year high in July as measured by the number of contracts deposited at Land Registry offices across the Republic.

Property sales refer to sales of domestic dwellings, retail premises, offices, warehouses and land (fields and plots.) The statistics provided by the Department of Lands and Survey do not differentiate between sales of new and sales of resale property.

Housing loans accounted for the lions share of borrowings between January and June accounting for 40% of all new loans. However, housing loans fell from €97.5 million in May to €93.8 million in June. There’s a possibility that the fall, assuming it continues, will be reflected in the number property sales in the coming months.

Also inflation surged to 10.9% in July, the highest level since August 1981 which, together with  rising price of building materials (up 19.42% in June on an annual basis) will increase pressure on sales of new property.

However, it is anticipated that the government’s headquartering initiative will further encourage real estate sales to foreign companies and their employees, particularly from Ukraine and Russia.

And attempts by opposition MPs to garner support for their party candidates in next year’s presidential election by extending the freeze on property repossessions until the end of October have failed. When the freeze ends banks in Cyprus can sell mortgaged properties via auctions and e-auctions after 120 days of arrears.

(Homeowners with primary residence with values up to €350,000, businesses with a turnover under €750,000 and land with a value of €100,000 or less who are currently protected under the freeze.)

July property sales

During July, the number of sales reached 1,218; an increase of 41% compared to June 2021, with numbers rising in all districts with the exception of Famagusta.

The highest number of sales was recorded in Limassol, followed by Paphos, Nicosia, Larnaca, and Famagusta.

Sales during the first seven months 2022 reached 7,481; a 39% increase on the 5,365 achieved in the same period of 2021 and the highest number on record since 2008.
