The real estate market in Paphos had the highest percentage of overseas buyers in 2011, according to new figures.
Cyprus Property News highlighted the data published this week by the country's land registry, which revealed international investors accounted for 35 per cent of house purchases in Paphos.
Famagusta and Larnaca were not far behind, with 32 per cent and 31 per cent of deals completed with foreigners respectively.
Nicosia, the nation's capital, is less reliant on overseas purchasers, however, with just 14 per cent of its property deals made by this demographic. Overall, the level of real estate transactions in Cyprus fell by 18 per cent in 2011, compared with 2010, the publication revealed.
