    As long as buyers buy property with deeds then they should find they are buying a good investment. If it wasn’t because I am desperate to get rid of my ex I would certainly sit on mine and wait it out.

    The only surprise here is the fall isn’t larger.

    Cyprus now has cooked it’s goose for good as a serious place to invest in anything – but especially real estate. The whole republic is really only known for two things: 1) Corruption and 2) Incompetence. Until the ‘Ponzi the Clown’ reputation is fully cleared – I cannot see any light at the end of the tunnel.

    Maybe the present home owners grandchildren may be pleasantly surprised perhaps?

    Is it not surprising when they cant lye straight in bed. Prices and market up one min down another projects on then off.

    Lies and deceit on a massive scale regarding developer loans and title deeds not being issued. Despite paying in full for many years. Banks threatening to repossess houses that are paid for as the developers owes the bank and holds the title deed. And for some strange reason can’t pass it on ….. Hmmmm………. Prices high and tourists being ripped off. R I P Cyprus housing and tourism …… have a nice day people.
