About 100% deposit needed plus another 50% for legal wranglings, expenses etc. and that's if you're lucky!

A minimum of a 30% deposit and quite a high 7% interest rate also lots of expences on top

A tent is cheaper than renting.

Or find an empty cave.

Wet soggy earthen mud will also create a shelter.

Or invest in your bricks and mortar home in the sun and enjoy the comforts.

Deals to be had.

Why are most people advising to rent? Surely you buy into the market when it is down (i.e. now) rather than buying into the market when it is up/overpriced?

Particularly if you have ready money, some fantastic deals are there to be had. But providing you realise that it is a 'longer term' investment i.e. 5+ years min. However, if you are looking for shortterm profit, or cannot put at least 50% deposit down then don't buy.

Like others, I have TRNC property, which has gone down in price. My strategy is to 'trade up' i.e. buy a more expensive property because if both properties have dropped by 30% then the more expensive property has dropped even more in terms than mine, so when the market improves I will benefit to a greater extent.

If you wish you could call it a double or quits policy. But as I am committed to the TRNC market, it is justiified. Irrespective of the Cyprus issue etc etc all the key investment fundementals are right.

Mess 6 - Wise words ZC....

Mess 9 - When you buy something, you get the legal title - but with the land dispute / Orams case, i think you'd be better renting for the forceable future.....

as buying anywhere in the world , buy the right property in the right area and it won't go down even if the markets fall.

rent for a while and get the feel of things here, then buy. don't just rush in thats the mistake most people have made.

it took us three years to find the right thing!

As simple as I can put this. I am not even sure if it is still possible to get a mortgage at the extreme high rates and this is what should tell you that if the financial institutions won't take a chance on lending you the money to buy then maybe you should rethink the buying and go by the advice here and rent.

Also if you have enough money for a reasonable deposit then as ZC and NN agree above stick it in a TL account and use the interest to pay for your rent until it at least stabilizes a bit more, that way you aren't losing any money and if you have enough in the bank you will gain on the interest.

This is what I am doing at the moment and hopefully I have made the right choice

Having a laugh surely

After all that has appeared on this site someone is asking about a mortgage.

Dont see how you can get a mortgage on your property if the builder/ developer has a already taken out a mortgage on it.

In the UK ,the mortgage company keeps the title deeds until the mortgage is paid off,what do mortgage companies in TRNC keep?

If you default on payments how can the mortgage company sell your property if title, and therefore ownership, is in the hands of the developer?

or do you pay the developer the full amount and when you get title ,assuming you ever do,then get a mortgage?

I was going to say ,take legal advice for protection, but I think that joke is in poor taste.

Re NN Msg 10. The whole reason property here is 1/3 that of the South is due amonst other reasons to the perceived risk re title deeds etc, so the NC market is not for everyone. But if you are a) buying with a view to live here & hence not interesting in selling for many a year or b) the propoerty forms a minor part of your overall wealth/investments - thenthere has never been a better time a get a drive great deal!
