The main element of a healthy Cyprus real estate market has always been residential property and specifically, within the luxury segment, second homes.
The property options in Cyprus that offer buyers the highest value for money include:
- Seafront properties: The areas in highest demand provide lifestyle aspects (i.e. beaches) and infrastructure, which are areas such as Limassol, Pafos, and Ayia Napa
- Integrated master planned communities: These usually have a golf course or community at their core, offering properties that cater to all types of owners and include locals, new residents, second home owners and vacationers
The price per m2 for properties of this nature is regularly between EUR 10,000 – EUR 22,000 depending on the location and building specifications. A good figure to maintain is around EUR 10,000 as you can be comfortable knowing there is room for appreciation.

Portuguese golden visa investment provides an opportunity to foreign investors to obtain long term residence status, and contribute towards eligibility for a portugese citizenship application after six years as a resident. The minimum property investment required for golden visa is EUR 500,000. There is no requirement to live permanently in Portugal except a visit once in a year is required. The residence permit card issued by Portugal is valid free movement in all 26 schengen states (22 EU countries and four non-EU countries).
The property market in Portugal experienced a significant increase in demand between 2000 and 2008, which led to developers working hard to meet the demand. However, with the global financial downturn in 2008, demand for properties decreased, leaving many newly-built properties available. Therefore, prices decreased and a strong opportunity for value was created and still exists, as the market corrects itself. The interest from foreign buyers in these areas has increased exponentially since the Golden Residence Program was launched late in 2012. With the influx of foreign owners to these areas, the property values in Portugal are increasing. This also leads to a higher quality of design and build of planned communities, which in turn attracts further long term value.
Our research indicates that the most desirable areas for real estate investment are:
- Lisbon – Portugal’s capital city
- Estoril Coast and Cascais region – offering a strong lifestyle focus
- Troia region – with a tropical atmosphere, only 40 km’s south of Lisbon
- Algarve region – Portugal’s main tourist region, thriving with high quality beaches and integrated resort communities
These areas offer buyers various features and the highest value for money:
- Prime developments close to the capital city of Lisbon
- Both Lisbon and the Estoril Coast/Cascais regions offer prime property developments, which to date have been the main focus for residence and citizenship investors in Portugal
- Seafront properties
- Despite the extensive coastline that the Algarve region offers, building restrictions and nature protection laws have prevented over-development, which generates higher value for the existing and approved projects due to a balance between supply and demand
- Integrated Master-Planned communities
- These usually have a golf course or community at their core, offering properties that cater to all types of owners and include locals, new residents, second home owners and vacationers. Both the Algarve and Troia region, alongside the Estoril Coast and Cascais regions, offer a good supply of planned communities
