The purchase of a real estate in Cyprus should be planned carefully. Both the Northern (Turkish) and Southern (Greek) parts of the island have their advantages for investment. We are always ready to provide our customers with all the necessary information not only about the price but also about differences in permanent residence in different districts of the island.
The first and indisputable advantage of buying a property in these countries is the natural conditions of the Eastern Mediterranean.

The second advantage is the high liquidity of the island's property.
The cost of a finished property is growing by 8-10% annually. And the difference between the purchase at the planning stage and the "turnkey" stage is up to 30%. Therefore, some of our customers consider investing in property with its future resale as a reliable decision to get income.
And the third advantage of Cyprus, we consider the tourist infrastructure of the European level. A system has been created and is effectively functioning on the island that provides all the needs for a comfortable life for residents and tourists:
A significant advantage is an environmental factor. There is no industrial production in Cyprus, therefore water, air and land are clean and safer for humans. The Minister of Agriculture and the Environment, Costas Cadiz, made a statement in January 2020 that Cyprus claims the principles of "green policy" friendly to the environment. In Cyprus, using plastic bags is banned, and next year they plan to forbid the use of disposable tableware.
Also, a great attraction for our clients is the low crime rate on the island and the loyal attitude of Cypriots to foreigners.
Many foreigners buy property here Swedes, British, French and Russian are buying luxury villas and townhouses.

The second-largest city in the country after Nicosia is Limassol, with a population of 240 thousand people. It is the most southern city in Europe.

Bright illumination, fireworks and music at night. A comfortable beach holiday in the afternoon. Thousands of foreign tourists visit Limassol because both the price and the infrastructure of the city are similar to holidays in Turkish resorts such as Antalya and Bodrum.

Also, Kyrenia attracts tourists from the Middle East with the opportunity to play in the casinos. In southern Cyprus, gambling is legal.
