In this blog post, we will explore the current trends in the North Cyprus property market and provide valuable guidance for buyers planning to visit in the near future.

Changing Market Dynamics

The North Cyprus property market, like other Mediterranean markets, has witnessed a post-COVID boom sales. Bellow are some notable trends emerged, and shaping the current landscape:

  1. Shortage of Affordable Properties: The availability of affordable “old price” properties, especially villas built 10-18 years ago, has dwindled rapidly due to high demand. To remain within your budget, it may be necessary to consider alternative property types instead. If you find a villa like in the one Çatalköy as example you should be fast otherwise it ‘ll be taken.
  2. Rapid Sales and Outdated Listings: The fast-paced market has forced property agents to work diligently to maintain accurate listings. However, due to the swift nature of transactions, online listings can become quickly outdated. Therefore, it is recommended to prepare a viewing list shortly before your visit to ensure up-to-date information.
  3. Price Disparity: Prices of North Cyprus properties have surged across the board. Older resale properties in high demand are priced significantly lower than newer, higher quality new-build properties. As a result, buyers should expect to pay a premium for newly constructed homes.
  4. Emergence of New Markets: The North Cyprus property market has attracted cash buyers from various parts of the world, creating competive environment. The rise in cash buyers has diminished the prevalence of bank mortgages, as sellers favor cash transactions. Developers of new-build projects have also reduced mortgage periods, reflecting the influx of cash buyers.
