In March a total of 452 contracts for the sale of commercial and residential properties and plots of land were deposited at Land Registry offices across Cyprus; an increase of 31% on the 344 contracts deposited during the same period last year. Of those 450 contracts 91% (411) were deposited on behalf of domestic buyers, while 9% (41) were deposited in favour of overseas buyers. Although sales fell 29% in Famagusta, they increased in all the other districts. Sales in Limassol increased 60% to reach 160 compared to the 100 sold in March 2014.

During the first quarter of 2015, domestic sales are up 25% compared to the first quarter of 2014 increasing to reach 848 compared to 680 last year. Overseas sales With reports of Lebanese buyers being duped, the devaluation of the rouble and reports of Chinese buyers being ripped-off appearing in the Greek-language media, it isn’t surprising that overseas sales bombed in March with sales falling 60% compared to March last year With the exception of Nicosia, where sales improved 71%, sales fell in all the other districts. Sales in Famagusta fell 93% with just one property sold compared to the 14 sold in March 2014. Sales in Paphos were down 78%, while sales in Limassol and Larnaca fell 55% and 53% respectively.
