As the climate emergency debate intensifies, more and more North Cyprus property buyers are rightly seeking a home which eco-friendly and built-in harmony with the beautiful natural environment of North Cyprus.  There is a new generation of Eco-friendly developers who offer fabulous alternatives.  These are generally custom-built and therefore sold off-plan or under construction.  This article aims to reassure those who are nervous about purchasing such Eco-friendly under construction properties that it’s completely safe and indeed advisable to purchase such a home, as older style key-ready homes tend to be more costly to run and less environmentally friendly.

“I’d love a custom-designed eco-friendly home – but I don’t trust Off Plan,” is a frequent plea that we at North Cyprus International (NCI) hear from enquirers.   Many investors or would-be retirees arrive in the TRNC fuelled with a conviction that it is sensible to purchase only a key ready villa or apartment.  These second home seekers arrive with a “wish list” of what is needed for their new ready home in the Mediterranean which often include high-quality design, luxury interior features and ultra-modern, environmentally friendly design.  Yet those with the highest standards increasingly they can fail to find all that they seek in a key ready property and then wonder why they leave empty-handed.  This article explains why NCI strongly recommends our clients to take a fresh look at the new generation of luxury & eco-friendly off-plan villa and apartment properties in North Cyprus

Features of North Cyprus Eco-friendly homes

These new properties offer the best combination of –

* Top quality interior fittings,

* Eco-friendly features such as water recycling, under-floor heating, and eco-friendly building materials

* Energy-saving features: high-quality insulation and passive solar design – making the home cheaper to run and warm in winter/cool in summer.

* Best plot position with sea view

* Ultra-modern custom design

* good payment terms and more.

The key to why such homes are generally sold off-plan or under construction lies in the fact that North Cyprus is a young and developing property market where design and build standards are improving and changing very rapidly and where the market has only recently achieved the kind of ultra-modern property range more common in western European overseas property markets.  In addition, Cyprus is a small island with restricted beachfront space – there is simply not the unlimited choice or space for development available in larger Mediterranean countries.  The “first wave” of development which occurred between 2005 – 2010 has largely all been sold, yet resales which arise from this earlier “wave” may seem attractive price-wise but are often not of the standard which our clients seek now and may, therefore, need refurbishing or refinishing.   What is being built today is on average hugely superior in standard from the older properties kinds of properties which were built even as recently as 7-8 years ago, which is why NCI takes great care with our range of hand-selected resale properties.

The great news is that there is a renaissance of visionary property developers in North Cyprus who are now custom creating Eco-homes with Smart technology, extended solar features, water recycling and under-floor heating at massively lower prices than a similar home in other locations.  They are also expanding into new build areas geographically and literally opening up new sea-view vistas. North Cyprus developers generally use private finance rather than bank finance to build North Cyprus Luxury Eco-friendly Homes, so will generally not build say 10 villas and wait for you to come along and buy one.  Understandably, instead, they build one show home at their own expense and then take custom design orders for off-plan property sales which are built from start to finish in less than a year and paid for either by build progress stage payments or by company payment plans.

This is where YOUR opportunity comes in to get in at the start of this new wave of North Cyprus Eco-friendly high-end properties at great prices. This gives you a far higher chance for capital growth as well as the chance to select the best plot in the new locations.
