Pandemic hits holiday home rental prices

The coronavirus pandemic has struck a blow to the market of holiday homes all across the world and Cyprus is no exception, according to Panos Danos, CEO of Danos & Partners Real Estate.

Rental prices this year are expected to drop even further than in 2020 during which those were low enough compared to the year before, he told Philenews.

A temporary sharp drop in prices is expected to be recorded in the coastal districts of Paphos, Larnaca, Paralimni and Limassol.

These districts were very popular for villa rentals from holiday makers from Germany, the United Kingdom, Gulf countries, China and Russia back in 2018 and 2019.

Due to the coronavirus, rental prices of beach houses in the district of Famagusta will be between €8 – €14/sqm. from €10-€ 2/sqm. in 2020 and €18-€2/sqm. in 2019. This means a 36.36% price drop.

In coastal Larnaca, rental prices of beach houses are expected to be €6 to €10/sqm. from €8 to €10/sqm. in 2020.  The difference is big in comparison with 2019 when rental prices were between €15 and €20/sqm.

In coastal Limassol, rental prices for holiday homes/square meter are expected to be €16 to €35/sqm. from €20 to €40 which was the case in 2020. The price drop is 12.5%.

In coastal Paphos, rental prices of seaside houses are expected to be between €8 and €14/sq. m. from €10 to €12/sqm. in 2020. The fall in rentals is estimated at 16.6%.

  1. Nigel, you may have seen the report in the CY Mail this week from a certain well know estate agent, raising several issues with UK nationals and their new found third country national status.

    It was stated that property owners in the UK that are now third country nationals are not permitted rent out property, either for local domestic rental use or holiday us. Do you have a view on that position as it currently stands. If correct thousands will be committing an offence.

    Also, those with MEU1/MEU3. Do we have grandfather rights on owning more property. in Cyprus. (to buy more new not existing). Thanks
