CBC: Residential Property Prices Record Annual Increase in Q1 2017

Residential property prices recorded their first annual increase in seven years, according to data released on Friday, August 25, by the Central Bank of Cyprus (CBC). In particular, residential property prices recorded a slight increase of 0.2% in the first quarter of 2017.

Apartment prices recorded an annual increase for the second consecutive quarter (1.6%), while house prices recorded the lowest annual decline since end 2010 (0.3%).

Residential property prices Index (houses and apartments) posted a third consecutive quarterly increase (0.3%) in the first quarter of 2017.

As noted by the Central Bank, the continued quarterly increases, albeit small, confirm the recovery of the real estate sector in Cyprus, as other relevant indicators also show.

Both house price and apartment price indices recorded a 0.3% increase on a quarterly basis.

As CBC noted, the recovery of Cyprus economy at a steady pace, the reduction of unemployment and the strengthening of trust are factors supporting the positive course of property prices in Cyprus.
