Residential Properties in Cyprus Continue Upward Trend

Residential Properties Index in Cyprus rose by a quarterly 0.6% in the first quarter of 2018, continuing its upward trend for seven consecutive quarters, the Central Bank of Cyprus has said.

The Residential Properties Index (comprising both houses and apartments) in the first quarter reached 75 units from 74.6 units the previous quarter, the CBC said, following an upward trajectory since the third quarter of 2016.

On an annual basis, the Residential Properties Index rose by 1.8%, the CBC added.

The indices of apartments and houses in Q1 2018 registered an increase of 0.9% and 0.4% respectively compared with Q4 2017, the Cyprus News Agency reports.

All indices per district recorded increases with the exception of Larnaca which observed a borderline reduction of 0.1%, the CBC said.

“The recovery of the real estate sector is expected to continue in the following quarters,” the CBC said, adding this trend is shown from in the economy’s relevant indicators which continued on a positive course in the first quarter of 2018.

The CBC said sale contracts and building permits continue to increase in the first quarter of 2018 despite the application of VAT on the sale of plots since January 1, 2018.

Compared with the previous quarter, the district of Famagusta topped the list with a quarterly rise of 1.6% in the residential property index followed by 0.8% in Limassol, 0.6% in Nicosia and Paphos, while the district of Larnaca registered a marginal decline of 0.1%.
