Buying a Home in Cyprus
A Practical Guide to Successful Real Estate Purchase - Top Tips Supplement

Check prices
If you’re thinking of buying a new property from a developer, compare
prices with similar properties by other developers in the area.
Make sure that asking prices are comparable with similar properties in the
area you’re thinking of buying.
Fixtures, fittings and finishes
Don’t expect the fixtures, fittings and finishes you see in the developers’
show homes to be the same in the property you’re thinking of buying.
It’s a bit like buying a new car; where the showroom model usually comes
‘fully loaded’, you’ll be lucky to get all four wheels on the standard model
without paying a bit extra!
Ask for a set of specifications and list of fixtures and fittings included in the
advertised price, the size of the plot and the size of the property.
Extras
Does the asking price cover everything you need - such as air-conditioning,
heating, granite worktops, double glazing, window shutters, insect screens,
solar heating panels?
Make sure that everything you want is included in your contract of sale and
beware of hidden extras.
Provisions
Some developers make ‘provision’ for central heating, air conditioning,
telephone, satellite TV systems and other facilities.
These ‘provisions’ are usually just lengths of plastic pipe incorporated into the
fabric of the building that will enable you to fit the extras at some later date.
