Can anyone advise whether property prices are going down in NC? If so, what percentage over the past six months?



Many thanks.

The market has been in a slump for some two years and is worsening according to those in the business. Getting figures is more difficult as so few can be verified and trusted. With so many Brits desperate to get away there are bargains to be had. Someone on the BB is selling for 20K less than they bought. That should give you some idea.

I was joking....



however, of course everywhere the world over is going to be more difficult for sellers in the current climate..



It is true that houses with really good locations and views will still sell... they always do... the more difficult ones will be those with less than optimal positions... There was a time when everything was being snapped up but that was bound to end at some point, global meltdown or no...



It is also likely that people who would have been about to trade up will be pulling up the drawbridge and trying to out-last the seige...



When you are selling a house you only need one buyer... if the house is right then it will sell.



When buying the old phrase "what's meant for you won't go by you" comes to mind.

Its a buyers market like everywhere else, wait a bit longer and sellers will be desperate to sell. Next year will be very hard for sellers as people begin to see the reality of buying in nc.

i think the problem with the market here is that if you have a resale property, firstly its hard to find an agent to sell it and you will be compeating on price with the new development unless you have something very individual.

i think the only bargins to be had are with those people who are desperate to leave cyprus for what ever reason.

also it will ordipend on the location the property is in,and what kochan it is on.

its no different from the uk if you buy at the right price and in the right location you can't loose.

Does anybody think that the ongoing talks between the 2 presidents will have some effect and encourage more to buy pushing prices up?



Or is this just wishful thinking??!!!

How many of you know any of the "brits desperate to get away" as mentioned by Pikey. I love the place and am very happy now it is eventuallly finished. I dont want to sell but I imagine speculators fear the global problem and probably are in such a deep financial hole they have a big defecit in every country in which they have invested.

I think you will find that most board members are on the west side of Kyrenia. Most of the villas in Esentepe (so I'm told) are holiday villas and not many people actually live there all year round.

The property prices are globally on the way down. However, this does not mean people will lose on their investments. I guess North Cyprus is no different than any other country. It is a matter of time before the markets pick up again. The interest rates are being cut gradually and this will help recovery.



It is certainly a good time to invest in property.

Global markets are clearly in recession. If you have money in the bank then this is the time to invest. Property, currency, commodities or S&S.



Property in TRNC is also in recession. Prices are generally at least 20% less than rest of Mediteranean coatal regions. This is mainly because of consumer fears regarding Land title, Political isolation of TRNC and more dificult access.



However. My vew is that political isolation will be overcome within the next two years. Turkey wishes to join the EU and The Cyprus issue is a thorn in their side. South Cypriot regime sees the North as inceasing its prosperity and economic position. There are clear economic advantages for the South as well as the North for an inceased level of economic liason, removal of cross border trade restrictions and more freedom of acesss to all parties, particularly direct flight.s to the North.



All these factors will have a positive economic effect on the Island but the effect will be greater in the North

continued from message 25.



Buyers of property in the North can depend on a future market. As an investment the market remain stagnant at bestwhilst the recession lasts.

When current cyprus issues are resolved the market will rise, probably quite quickly due to the remarkable tapography and inherant attractivness of the region.



Investment is better than anywhere else in Europe except possibly for Bulgaria and Romania. This is because you still purchase in sterling. US$ has totally lost its attraction , the Euro has been out of sorts for over 12 months so North Cyprus is definately the place to get the best value , favorable location, favorable climate, Engish speaking, and offers some of the best potential.



If you are going to buy. Off plan builds are up to 24 months and then you need to furnish and garden and sort infrastructure. I recommend a re - sale.

Mature gardens can make a property. Build quality on new build is getting better. There are only a few good developer

Just had to comment on the welcome positivity from the posts on this site

We are on our way over to Ozankoy for six months from next February and sometimes when I read the negative posts I wonder what we are doing.

Thanks for all your positive thoughts.

Love to hear from anyone living in Ozankoy. We have apartment at Sydney Homes, very nice.

Hi Tricia,



I have a holiday home in Ozankoy. I know where Sydney Homes are and they are in an ideal location in the village. The village is ideal for walking to bars and restuarants in the evening and has a really friendly atmosphere. There is a mixture of TC's, Turks and Brits living in the village. Theres always something going on and its an ideal base to see the rest of the island from.



I'm sure you will have a god time.
