As more and more people choose to buy a second home abroad, either for their own use or as a wise investment, the internet allows developers and sellers to present their portfolios online with detailed descriptions, extensive photos, and often even virtual tours. The value of online property searches cannot be overstated; however, once you have narrowed down the options to your favourite four or five properties, it is worth taking a short trip to see these properties for yourself.
If you are thinking of buying property in Cyprus, your visit can be combined with a most enjoyable holiday, as Cyprus ranks among the most popular destinations in the Mediterranean region. Come with your partner or your family, and combine your break with property viewings, which the SkyPrime team would be happy to organize for you. But before you book your tickets, make sure to consider the following:
Do you Require a Visa?
Unless you are a resident of Cyprus, or a European passport holder, or a citizen of a country that has concluded a visa-free travel agreement with Cyprus, you will have to apply for a Cyprus entry visa from your nearest Embassy of the Republic of Cyprus consular department. In some cases, your tour operator may be able to help. Holders of a Schengen visa may also enter Cyprus, although it is not yet a member of the Schengen Area.
Where Would you Like to Stay?
Cyprus welcomes over 3 million visitors a year; so there are many hotels and self-catering villas and apartments available for short-term and holiday rental. Upon request, our team can propose conveniently located accommodation, according to your wishes, at the special corporate rates we have agreed with our associates. We can also arrange airport transfers with Meet & Greet service upon arrival.
Property Viewing Schedule
Once we have discussed your personal needs and expectations, we will prepare a list of suitable properties to show you during your visit. On the agreed date, a member of our team will pick you up from your chosen accommodation and drive you to properties that match your requirements. If you prefer, a preliminary meeting at our office can be arranged before the viewings. Either way, this is your chance to not only see some of your chosen properties in person but also the right time to ask our property professionals detailed questions regarding property acquisition in Cyprus, the actual transactions, as well as property management services and all associated costs and obligations.
As we visit the properties you wish to see, make sure to take notes and photos that you can then review and compare at leisure before making a final decision. Before leaving the island, you may wish to have a second look at one or two properties that you are particularly keen on.
Remember, the best way to identify the ideal property that matches your preferences is to prepare a detailed list of your ‘must-have’ features as well as extras that would make the property even more appealing. Another great help is to read Frequently Asked Questions Affecting the Real Estate Market in Cyprus. That will help us direct you to the right property for you in the shortest possible time. Are you ready to start your search?
