Property sales up 44 per cent

PROPERTY sales in Cyprus increased by 44 per cent in September compared to September last year according to the latest official figures published by the Department of Lands and Surveys. During September a total of 556 contracts for the sale of commercial and residential properties and land (building plots and fields) were deposited at Land Registry offices across the island; an increase of 44% over the 385 sold in September last year. September’s increase follows a 50% increase in August, a 26% increase in July, and a 42% increase in June. Of those 556 contracts, 77% (427) were deposited by domestic (Cypriot) purchasers, while 23% (129) were deposited by overseas (non-Cypriot) purchasers. The number of contracts includes ‘non-sale’ agreements such as loan restructurings, recoveries and debt-to-asset swaps agreed between the banks and defaulting borrowers. As these ‘non-sale’ agreements are not recorded separately, there is no clear picture of the actual demand for property in the domestic (Cypriot) market.
