Parting with the cash

Postby Seaton 2 » Fri Jan 18, 2019 12:41 pm

Bit of a cheeky question really but here goes,

We're currently making up shortlist of properties to view (subject to availability) in Feb when we visit. Of course there's the usual waffle from some estate agents but what's prevalent at the moment ? buyers or sellers market ?

As and when we make an offer I know there's a lot of variables but what's the acceptable level to pitch in at ? would I be slung off the island if I offered 75% of the advertised price because they're so reasonable or are they priced ready for significant negotiation ?


thanks in advance

Yes you bargain. Do not accept price offered also DO NOT part with cash untill you see title deeds.
If you know any Cypriot ask him to help you.

Why don't you rent for a while, 6-12 months and take your time to find the right place for you at the right price. :idea:

This way you might not have toooooooo much of "buyer's remorse", in feeling that you might have been screwed because you rushed it!

Good advice! It is a serious investment so don't rush.
