  1. The prices will continue to fall in many years to come. Finally the world is aware that Cyprus is a wasps nest.
    Con-artists everywhere and phony mafiozo Government for ever.

    You go to Cyprus or have anything to do with Cyprus you will eventually regret it.

  2. Well I never thought the property prices were on the up like the financials GDP growth up 3%. Put when you at rock bottom any positive spin on growth hides the truth.
