Why Buy Property in Northern Cyprus?

What, you mean, apart from the near year round glorious, the beautiful unspoilt countryside, the dramatic coastline and glorious beaches, the rich historical heritage that began with Trojan War veterans and includes the Romans, Byzantines, and Venetians? Not to mention the friendly people, 90% of whom speak English? There are also very good economic reasons for buying property in North Cyprus, for all ages and types of property investor.

Northern Cyprus: a stress-free home from home

North Cyprus does not have the chilly cold climate of Britain in the winter, but it does share some of Britain’s better features! Turkish Cypriots drive on the left, the electricity supply is virtually the same, the telecommunications system is modern and efficient, the legal system is based on British law, and 90% of Cypriots speak English. Furthermore, if you transfer your British pension to Northern Cyprus, you are not taxed on it.  

With the hectic pace of city life in the UK, it’s refreshing to find a country where crime levels are low, vandalism is virtually unknown, and air and noise pollution simply not an issue. Traffic congestion is unheard of in the countryside, although just like any popular towns, Nicosia and Kyrenia can get crowded around rush hours. Kids will love the outdoor life of sun, sea and sand, and Turkish Cypriots love children in return. North Cyprus has no less than five universities, so the population is generally well educated, and proud of their country’s heritage and historic sites.

North Cyprus: great value for money

A simple visit to a village market shows you just how much more you get for your money in North Cyprus. Since the country grows so much of its own produce, you can buy vegetables and fruit, fresh from the fields, for the equivalent of just a few UK pence. Alcohol is also cheap, including the famous local brandy, or locally-brewed refreshing beers and surprisingly high quality wines.

North Cyprus sunshine: not just for sunbathing

Did we mention the 300+ days of sunshine in North Cyprus? No wonder most North Cyprus homes have solar panels, which not only heat their water but also provide electricity to power the home. On average, all utility bills on a moderate sized property will be less than £200 – per annum. Leaving you more cash to spend on eating out in local restaurants, which are of course, much cheaper than their UK equivalents!
