RICS Cyprus Property Price Index 2022 Q2
The RICS Cyprus Property Price Index tracks property and rental prices across all districts and main property types in Cyprus. It monitors the urban centres of Nicosia, Limassol, Larnaca, Paphos and Paralimni-Famagusta. The Index only tracks prices in Republic of Cyprus’ government controlled area and not in the occupied North. In each of these centres, the index monitors the Market Value and Market Rent, as defined in the RICS Red Book, across the four main property sectors – office (CBD), retail (high street), industrial (warehouse) and residential (houses and apartments). Recognising that there are sub-districts within these urban areas which operate and behave in a varying manner, a number of these is monitored in order to derive the composite index for each category per urban area. The information provided in this publication is based on the average price and rent of the sub-districts monitored per urban centre per sector. The Index is based on methodology produced by the University of Reading in the UK.
