EU, VAT and increase
in demand & prices - After EU accession, most restrictions to
foreigner buyers were lifted and Cyprus is no longer just another
tourist destination. It’s becoming the home, work place, business
destination, retirement place for more than half a billion people
coming from all over Europe. All these are already increasing demand
for properties in Cyprus. But what else could push up the prices
even more? VAT is definitely another factor. Cyprus has a
transitional period until 2008 before imposing VAT on land but
buyers of houses, flats, e.t.c will have to pay a 15% VAT on
developments approved after May 1st 2004. What does this mean?
Prices will increase gradually, at least by 50 % by 2008.
buying property - Location / Building & other restrictions (for
land) / Facilities provided (c/h, a/c, s/pool, etc) / Quality of
construction / Reliability of seller / After sales support / Extra
Costs (extras not included in selling price could increase the price
up to 50% or even more).
