Buy a plot of land in Cyprus

Buying land in Cyprus has become a popular destination and a significant trend in recent years.

In the first half of 2023, the share of land transactions amounted to 65.7% of all transactions (of which the purchase of land for development was 23.5%), the share of transactions for the purchase and sale of apartments was 18.9%, and houses were 15.3%. This confirms that both local and foreign buyers are actively investing in land in Cyprus.

Cyprus is very profitable in terms of investment in land; the island has excellent opportunities for permanent residence, recreation and business.

Why is it now profitable to invest in land in Cyprus and real estate construction?

✅ Developing real estate market

The real estate market in Cyprus is actively developing, providing a wide range of opportunities for investors. The growing demand for quality housing and infrastructure creates favorable conditions for the successful development of construction projects.

✅ Attractive land prices

Currently, land prices in Cyprus remain relatively affordable compared to other EU countries, providing investors with a unique opportunity to purchase promising land plots for future construction.

✅ Increase in cost

In Cyprus, the limited resource of available land makes it even more valuable and in demand. As demand for real estate increases, land values continue to rise, highlighting the attractiveness of this investment destination.

✅ Possibility to start the sales process immediately after purchasing the land

The advantage of purchasing land with a ready-made project and license is also that the buyer has the opportunity to begin the process of construction and sale simultaneously and immediately after purchasing the land plot. For example, in Larnaca, this trend of sales from stage 0 has been developing for more than 2 years, as the demand for housing exceeds supply, given the sharp increase in foreigners in Cyprus.

✅ Attractive tax conditions

Cyprus offers attractive tax conditions for investors and entrepreneurs. Low tax rates, especially for property and income taxes, provide additional incentives for those seeking to maximize their investment opportunities.

✅ Increased interest in tourism and relocation

Tourism in Cyprus is constantly growing, which makes real estate on the island in demand. In 2023, tourist arrivals to Cyprus increased by 32%, strengthening its reputation as a year-round holiday destination. Purchasing land in Cyprus for the construction of hotel apartments, villas or small apartment complexes provides an excellent opportunity for rental or resale, generating additional income.

✅ High potential for return on investment in Cyprus real estate

Investments in real estate in Cyprus can generate income on a monthly basis when renting them out (6% -8% per annum), as well as in the form of a net increase in value.

And short-term rentals can bring even higher profits – from 12 to 15%.

✅ Individual approach to construction

Investments in land plots in Cyprus will allow the investor to expand the choice of investment project as budget or luxury housing.

If you want to buy land for development in Cyprus, our company offers profitable opportunities. Our offers cover various areas of Cyprus including Paphos, Limassol, Larnaca.

Buying land in Cyprus through a company

Citizens of the European Union have the right to purchase land in Cyprus without restrictions. While the purchase of property in Cyprus by foreign citizens (non-EU citizens) has some restrictions.

Foreign citizens also have the right to purchase a plot of land, but the area of the plot is limited to 4,014 square meters per person.
It should be noted that this restriction only applies if you are purchasing land as an individual.

However, foreign investors have the opportunity to bypass the plot size restriction by purchasing land through companies. If the plot is purchased in the name of a company, there are no restrictions on the size of the property.

In addition, we are pleased to share some interesting updates on the construction business in Cyprus.

The government has recently introduced a more efficient application process for low-risk projects.

This means that in the future there will be no need to apply for a building permit for structures such as houses and apartment buildings consisting of 6-9 residential units.

This development indicates that in the near future we will be able to bypass the long waiting periods for construction project permits, which previously delayed the start of construction by 6 months to a year.

For example, with a budget of 500,000 euros, we have a unique investment proposal for the purchase of a plot of land in a prestigious area of ​​Larnaca with an approved permit for the construction of a residential building with 6 apartments, including 2 penthouses on the  top floors.
