  1. With the current cost of land in Cyprus, the increased cost of building materials, the war in Ukraine, the residual impact of Covid, fears around global warming and a looming recession, I fear that the Cyprus real estate market will enter a protracted period of stagnation that may take several years if not decades to resolve.

    I also fear that young Cypriots will face a choice of either spending a lifetime in rented accommodation or moving abroad to realise their potential and live a more financially rewarded existence.

    As a Greek Cypriot with family all over the island, I very much hope that I am wrong in all of the above predictions and the residents realise all of their housing aspirations in their native country.
