I started thinking about buying property abroad rather long ago. There were several countries where real estate and plots of land were chosen. (France, Bulgaria, Cyprus). Quite a few articles were read, real estate situation abroad was analyzed. Because we live in Siberia, and that place is by no means a health resort, but a place of exile for convicts in czarist times, which explains the choice for a more comfortable region. It is not just climate. Although the climate is not of little importance. Our winters are rather long, if you judge them by European standards, they can last 9 months a year. In winter, you always wrap yourself up in layers and insulate all the necessary and unnecessary body parts, or it can take you an hour to warm up the car to get it started. And in summer there are unbearable gnats, black flies, and 25mm mosquitoes. Even though we have rivers and lakes, you can't go in there for a swim without caution. And all of that improves neither health, nor comfort, satisfaction, or optimism. Another reason that made me choose a more comfortable region was the kids' education. Our teaching and education system has discredited itself in my opinion; because a few years ago my older daughter graduated from school and now studies at a university, so I know these things first hand. And this year, my younger daughter is going to start her first grade. In general, I have come up with this idea to buy real estate abroad. Because we live in a house of our own, and there is not enough treasure in the world to lure me to an apartment, I was looking for a house from the beginning. Surfing the Internet, I picked three companies that represented the real estate market in Cyprus. However, as I came to Cyprus one of the companies turned out to be privately-owned, another one was only selling its own property, so that only the third one remained that offered such a broad database of various developers and I realized I didn't need anyone else. That company was Cyprus Developers Alliance.
The company offered a fair number of options. And their approach was quite professional, to my own surprise I picked the house that I hadn't even considered when looking online. The project impressed me very much with its Italian-style design and forest surroundings with pines and olive trees.
During negotiationswith Cyprus Developers stayed close and solved the most important issues including those of discounts and supplementary services. It made a world of difference.
On the whole, all payment terms are stipulated in the contract, but they are specified during negotiations, and that is when you need assistance from the representatives of Cyprus Developers Alliance. But even if you find yourself in arrears or there is a situation, they will not take a pound of flesh off you, but try to help you out and find more advantageous options and solutions.
House transfer procedure.
On the day specified in the contract for commissioning and transfer of the house to the Customer, i.e. to me, I phoned Cyprus Developers Alliance and set the time of my arrival at Cyprus. You understand that it is rather difficult to move from Siberia to Cyprus (three days through forests, 5 days across fields, a day on the plane). Finally, the long-awaited hour X came! All of us (my wife, both daughters and me) came to accept the house. All previously specified things and supplementary equipment were in place, there was running water, gas service, heating, the pool was filled, the sun was shining!!! There were little unfinished jobs that my wife detected, but they were done within 2 days. I won't tell you about decorating, everyone does it in their own way, as of today everything is equipped (not without involvement of Cyprus Developers Alliance, I should thank them so much), both furniture and household appliances. We hired a company for beautification and to lay out a garden. Discussion of plant life and up making an estimate took only 3 days, and in another 3 days we had a garden with an automatic irrigation system, where everything works autonomously. As of today, the trees in the garden bear enough fruit, and we take our own crop — oranges, tangerines, pomelos, figs, pomegranates, cumquats, plums, apricots, peaches...!!!) For Siberians, it's a totally amazing feeling!
Am I happy with the purchase?
Of course I am! I live in my own house, gather and eat my own fruit, my family is with me and happy: there are the swimming pool and the sea. The sun, fresh air saturated with the smell of resin from relict pines and motley grasses! Wonderful neighbors! We celebrate holidays and birthdays together and simply get together in the evenings and discuss different topics.
