The value of real estate sales across Cyprus during the first quarter of 2022 reached almost €1.3 billion, according to official data from the Department of Lands & Surveys.
Commenting on the figures, the Real Estate Registration Council (SEK) said that the Land Registry data reflect the dynamic momentum of the real estate sector.
According to the Land Registry figures a total of 5,258 real estate sales were achieved in the first quarter of 2022 with a total value of €1,272,553,880. Commenting on the figures, SEK said: “As expected, Limassol and Nicosia had the lion’s share, while the other districts are moving quite positively.
“The figures indicate there’s great interest in the acquisition of land, as agricultural fields and building plots, possibly as an alternative source of investment.
“The figures also reveal an increasing demand for apartments in all districts with the exception Paphos where houses were more popular.”
