2019 is the perfect year to consider investing in the Riviera Maya

By | News, North Cyprus Property News

2019 is the perfect year to consider investing in the Riviera Maya

 

We’ve barely made it through mid-January and 2019 is already looking positive for the Riviera Maya. Besides having award-winning beaches, near-perfect year-round weather, and being very affordable, the Riviera Maya is moving progressively forward in many directions.

This, of course, makes it the perfect time to consider investing in the region – whether you’re thinking Cancun, Tulum, Akumal or Playa del Carmen. Mexico’s new government and administration are putting more emphasis on promoting self-sustaining communities, enhancing public transportation, and protecting Mexico’s natural resources. These, and other elements, will not only guarantee a successful 2019, but they will also establish a path for greatness in the future.

 

 

New Transportation for Easier Mobility

Getting around from city to city and all points in between, can become expensive and, sometimes, very cumbersome. Mexico offers a variety of public transportation options, both private and commercial. Mexico has an ample supply of buses, shuttle services, taxi and colectivos to get around. However, Mexico’s latest endeavour offers another option that will give tourists a new way to see the Yucatan Peninsula. The Mayan Train will bring tourism to several communities that would otherwise be overlooked for lack of transportation. Moreover, other transportation methods for locals and tourists are being considered for this year, such as the Metrobus system along the Federal Highway.

 

 

Communities Off the Beaten Path…But Not Too Far

 

It seems that smaller communities are getting more attention from tourists who are looking for a subtler and more relaxing getaway. The Riviera Maya offers such a diverse selection of destinations that range from mega hot spots like Playa del Carmen and Cancun to laidback communities similar to Akumal and Puerto Morelos. In fact, Puerto Morelos has seen double-digit growth in tourism over the last few years. Luckily, it’s a short ride from Tulum, Playa del Carmen and Cancun. So, if you’re betting on vacation rentals in those major cities, you’re golden. Many of the Riviera Maya’s smaller communities are experiencing above-average traffic from tourism. This means there are still plenty of opportunities to be had.

 

Airline Traffic

Another reason why the Yucatan Peninsula continues growing in popularity is that the Cancun International Airport keeps adding new routes. Now, we all know that following airport indicators is key when researching the option to invest in a region. These additional routes come from North America, South America, Europe and many Eastern parts of the world. There is no doubt that there are more to come. In order to create a vacation mecca, you have to have an airport that can accommodate all the incoming traffic. Cancun now has four very modern and up-to-date terminals that can handle millions of visitors. In December 2018, the airport reported 25 million passengers coming and going. This is a 6.9% increase over 2017 and is looking to be busier in 2019.

Award-Winning Destination

Other reasons why people continue investing in the Riviera Maya, of course, is because it’s an award-winning destination. There are an abundant of other destinations to visit in Mexico. Puerto Vallarta, Cabo San Lucas, Mexico City and San Miguel de Allende are only a few. However, the Riviera Maya continues receiving allocates for being the best destination in Mexico. What started as a back-packers off-the-beaten-path haven has now become a mega vacation mecca with the purest white-sand beaches, beautiful turquoise waters and perfect weather.

 

Eco-Conscious Efforts

Of course, this constant growth and influx of tourism means that keeping the region’s environmental integrity intact has been a challenge. But one that the municipality of Quintana Roo has made their mission to comply. Just this year, two more beaches were added to the Riviera Maya’s Blue Flag list. The millions of tourists definitely take a toll on the area’s ecosystem, land and water. The Blue Flag Certification is part of a world organization (Foundation of Environmental Education) that sets high standards for education, quality and safety. In brief, it hands out certificates to water-related terrains that maintain high standards in sustainability.

This goes hand in hand with efforts to become more sustainable as a whole community. More and more people are joining green movements, and developers are not staying far behind. Many new real estate developers are finding solutions to the damage that building can cause to the environment. This means adding solar panels, water-recycling systems or locally-sourced and natural materials.

Moreover, in 2019, the government will be taking a look at different projects to work with the excess of sargassum that has been washing up on the shores of the Mexican Caribbean.

 

Make a Profit from the Riviera Maya in 2019

When looking to invest your hard-earned money, you need to consider the following points:

Investment’s potential for return on investment (present and future);

Maintaining safe consistency within its own climatic environment;

Having the investment in a position throughout any and all regional changes. The Riviera Maya is guaranteed to be one of the best investments to make in 2019. In fact, International Living listed it as the number one destination for real estate investment in December 2018. The world is full of opportunities; but there is nothing quite like Mexico’s Riviera Maya.

Why INVEST in North Cyprus?

By | News, North Cyprus Property News

– Fast investment return

– Low prices

– Growing economy – North Cyprus is a small place, but with a fast growing economy providing a wide range of investment opportunities

– Safe place to invest – top 3 lowest crime rate in Europe

– Guaranteed rental income- over 60.000 young people from more than 100 countries study at its international universities, making education the leading sector of its economy

– Visa free for all Eastern European countries

– 10 years income tax free for investments in the Tourism sector

– Increasing  Tourism, partly due to the increase in 5 star hotels and casinos and extension of the national airport,Ercan

– Political security. There is a strong willingness on both sides of the island for a reunification, which will boost property prices in North Cyprus and will open many business opportunities

Do you remember your first foreign holiday; how the warm air hit you when you stepped through the door of the plane, the sunlight pouring through the window first thing in the morning, sea water as warm and gentle as a bath and the smell of barbecued lamb and herbs for dinner? Well that’s North Cyprus, the Mediterranean as it used to be.

It’s no wonder that increasing numbers of Europeans and Scandinavians are choosing to buy property in this lovely and historic place. Britons in particular feel at home in North Cyprus, where they drive on the left hand side of the road, Sterling is accepted everywhere and most people speak English.

Life in North Cyprus is easy, but when it comes to moving abroad, or buying a holiday home, price remains a major consideration – and on this North Cyprus is a clear winner.

The northern half of Cyprus boasts some of the best beaches, the most spectacular scenery and unspoiled landscapes on the island and yet property here remains under priced because of years of political uncertainty.

For the past 40 years Cyprus has been divided into two ethnic regions, the Greek-Cypriot Republic in the south and the Turkish-Cypriot north.

Unrecognized by the international community and with limited transport links and some trade embargoes, the North has remained something of a Sleeping Beauty.

This has created an artificially-low property market. For example, a one-bedroom studio flat in a managed development costs just £40,000,  a newly-built two to three-bedroom apartment overlooking the sea, usually with a communal pool, can be bought for less than £70,000, while it is perfectly possible to find a three-bedroom villa with garden and pool for just under £125,000.

Even big luxury builds with all the extras tend to be about half the price of similar villas in the south and way below similar properties in France, Spain or Portugal.

But now prices are edging upwards as observers mark new political developments which seem likely to bring North Cyprus into the European fold.

Leaders of the two sides have entered into a fresh round of talks aimed at settling their 40-year-old division. Hopes are high that a UN-backed deal will create a new bi-zonal Federation of Cyprus, formed by two equal states of Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots. This would mean North Cyprus joining South Cyprus as a fully-recognised member of the EU.

In 2004 a similar proposal known as the Annan Plan sparked the first North Cyprus property boom. Unfortunately, reunification was ultimately rejected by the Greek Cypriot side, but those who bought property in the north at that time have seen the value of their investment more than double.

This year both sides have signed a joint agreement BEFORE sitting down to detailed talks, so the prospects for a settlement are much stronger. Local estate agents and constructors are already seeing signs of a new boom, with sales up by 25% this year and increased interest from Russia, Scandinavia and the UK.

So there has never been a better time to invest in North Cyprus.

Residence Permit

Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus law states that residence permits can be applied for once you have bought your North Cyprus Home. The British Residence Society can provide you with all relevant information. When you arrive in North Cyprus, you are issued with a 1 month tourist visa. After that you must apply for a residence permit. The procedure is fairly straight forward but does require medical checks for HIV, Typhus etc at the hospital in Lefkosa. The current cost is approximately £150 for your first application and then a small renewal fee in subsequent years.

The standard procedure for applying for a permit is as follows:

You must make yourself known to your local Immigration Office by taking your passport. Local Immigration Offices are found at the Police station.

A written application with legal documents showing your identity – photocopies of your passport are acceptable. A letter from your local Muhtar, quoting your passport number.

North Cyprus Title Deeds – The Facts

By | News, North Cyprus Property News

North Cyprus Title Deeds

It is always important when investing in North Cyprus property– as anywhere – to get the property title deeds. The current situation between North Cyprus and south Cyprus means that many people are confused over this issue. The events of 1974 divided the island, and hence this year is vitally important in deciding property ownership. Here is a quick guide to current North Cyprus property title deeds, to help you secure the North Cyprus property of your dreams.

The only title you will need

The only North Cyprus property title that you should consider, and indeed the only property title you should be offered, is a Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) freehold. This title comes in four formats.

  1. Pre 1974 Turkish Freehold Title

This is the title for land or property owned by a Turkish Cypriot before 1974.

  1. Pre 1974 Foreign Freehold Title

This is the title for land or property owned by a foreign national (i.e. non Turkish Cypriot) before 1974. These titles are recognised internationally.

  1. TRNC Exchange Title

This is the title for land or property given to a Turkish Cypriot in exchange for land and property they owned in south Cyprus before 1974, and which they were forced to leave behind on moving to the North. The government assessed the value of both land and goods left behind, and allocated the land or property in the North, in exchange for the waiving of the rights to their land in the south. The original pre-1974 owner of the land or property would have been Greek Cypriot. This is also known as the Esdeger (pronounced Esh-day-air).

  1. TRNC TMD Title

This is the title for land given to Turkish Cypriots for military or government service, or to Turkish settlers to encourage economic growth in certain parts of the North, after 1974. As with the Esdeger, the original pre-1974 owner of the land or property would have been Greek Cypriot, who abandoned the land or property after 1974.

Which Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus Title Deed to consider

It is considered safe to purchase any North Cyprus property or land, which has any of the above title deeds. However, as with all Northern Cyprus property purchases, whether for enjoyment or investment, you should always employ an independent solicitor to check that the deeds are indeed legal and above board.

North Cyprus Estate Agents and Title Deeds

Most North Cyprus estate agents will only deal in properties that carry one of the four types of deed.

Sunseeker Resort- Redland Property Group

Charlotte County welcomes Allegiant Sunseeker Resort

By | News, News Florida, Property in Florida

The $600 million project will create the tallest buildings in the county. The company promises 500 full-time jobs.

CHARLOTTE COUNTY — The only thing missing at the groundbreaking for Allegiant Travel Co.’s $600 million Sunseeker Resort was the sun.

Under a light mist Wednesday morning, company and county officials dug ceremonial golden shovels in the sandy soil along Charlotte Harbor to signal the start of construction on the company’s first full-service resort.

Phase 1 of the project is expected to add 510 resort hotel rooms and 180 one-, two- and three-bedroom extended stay units in three nine-story waterfront towers. Sunseeker Resort will also feature 17 restaurants, bars and cafes and a harbor walk along the 22-acre property.

“It’s not only Charlotte Harbor but it’s the entire community that’s going to benefit from this,” said County Commission Chairman Ken Doherty, noting that a redevelopment district paved the way in 2005 for a project of this scope and size.

Sunseeker will have the tallest buildings in the county and will tower over the mostly residential and business area on both sides of U.S. 41 near the foot of the Punta Gorda bridge. The resort will dramatically alter the skyline along the Port Charlotte side of the harbor, which is a nationally protected estuary.

Allegiant promised to bring 500 full-time jobs once Sunseeker opens in the fall of 2020, mostly in the hospitality industry and service sector to staff the restaurants, hotels and retail development along the waterfront. Company officials said they are working with area schools and colleges to fill a demand for workers.

Allegiant Airlines’ investment in Charlotte County has already paid huge dividends, as the airline’s expanding operations allowed the Punta Gorda Airport to set a traffic record of 1.58 million passengers in 2018.

“It’s a big step, but the investment is going to be worth it,” John Redmond, Allegiant Travel president, said at the groundbreaking.

Allegiant serves seven airports in Florida, bringing 8 million passengers to the Sunshine State. Allegiant also flies into St. Petersburg/Clearwater and just started operating out of Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport last year. It also flies into Orlando Sanford east of the Disney area.

Charlotte County continues to grow, albeit a little slower than neighboring Sarasota County to the north and Lee County to the south. The county’s population grew 13.8 percent to 182,000 in 2017, up from 160,000 in 2010, according to Census Bureau estimates.

Company officials said they were faced with a lack of familiarity with the Charlotte County area when they searched for funding, getting some familiar questions: Punta Where? Port What?

“It’s part of the DNA of what we do,” said Redmond, who is a former MGM Grand official. “We have never done the obvious in our history. That’s what makes us so successful. This will be the most successful non-gaming hotel anywhere.”

Initially, Sunseeker was announced as 720 condominiums and a smaller 75-room hotel but Allegiant officials changed the mix of the project to hotel and long-term rentals after researching the market, according to a Herald-Tribune report in October 2018. A proposed 1,000-foot-long resort pool is on hold, and three acres adjacent to Sunseeker may be developed in future stages.

The waterfront hotel rooms are expected to start at $175 a night, with “Sunsuites” renting from $249 to $499 a night, according to a kiosk in the resort’s new welcome center along U.S. 41.

The Sunseeker development is less than a mile from downtown Punta Gorda, which has experienced a revival in recent years by adding several full-service hotels and numerous restaurants and bars in the waterfront city.

The city of Punta Gorda has rebounded beautifully after being decimated by Category 4 Hurricane Charley in August 2004. The city also hopes to be a partner with the resort, providing amenities and attractions for Sunseeker’s guests.

“I think this is a wonderful addition to Charlotte County,” said Patti Allen, general manager of Fishermen’s Village across the harbor in Punta Gorda. “I believe that it’s really going to put Punta Gorda and Port Charlotte on the map.”

Egypt safer than US and UK – Gallup poll – BBC NEWS

By | Egypt News, News

Egypt has been ranked the safest country in Africa and higher than both the UK and US, according to a new global poll.

 

The annual Gallup Global Law and Order asked if people felt safe walking at night and whether they had been victims of crime.

The survey placed Egypt 16th out of 135 countries, while the UK was 21st and the US 35th.

Singapore was ranked the safest, with Venezuela was seen as the least.

Egypt got 88 out of 100 in the survey, placing it on the same level as countries like Denmark, Slovenia and China. This was an improvement on 2016, when it got 82.

Gallup’s Jon Clifton told the BBC that Egypt’s score reflected a trend over recent reports, which have seen Egyptians becoming increasingly trusting of the police.

Egyptian President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi has led the country since the military removed Mohammed Morsi in 2013.

His government has been battling Islamist militants who last year killed more than 70 people in suicide attacks against churches in the capital Cairo and in the cities of Tanta and Alexandria.

Militants allied to Islamic State have also launched several daring attacks in the Sinai Peninsula, targeting Egyptian troops operating.

Gallup says it interviewed 148,000 adults in 142 countries and areas for its survey.

Its questions revolved around confidence in local police, safety at night, cases of theft and whether participants or a family member had been mugged or assaulted within the past 12 months.

In Afghanistan (46%), Uganda (49%) and South Sudan (50%) residents were more likely than lowest ranked Venezuelan to say they had been the victims of theft in the past year.
