Buying a property for a student planning to study in Cyprus is an excellent option for several reasons. The first reason is that it is very difficult to get into dormitories, and often students have to rent an apartment, at least for the initial period. The second reason is that it is a great investment with a long-term perspective. Real estate in Cyprus is steadily increasing in value, and there is always demand for rentals, especially in certain areas. The third reason is that when purchasing property worth 300,000 euros or more, family members of the owner are entitled to expedited Permanent Residency (PR) in Cyprus and can also move to the island.
In our selection, we mainly feature small apartments located near the universities in Nicosia. These are excellent options in new buildings that will be a great investment.
