Determine the demand for your particular chosen property type – i.e., if you’re thinking of buying a seafront apartment, think about the tourism demand for that property. If you’re looking at appealing to golfers year round, which are the best golf properties, or if you want long-term rental contracts, what will the local people or businesspersons who will make up your potential base of client want, and buy a property accordingly? I have a great Larnaca Property site that I would love to share with you.

Hello, Deputy Mayor Michaelides. I seek your help on an environmental/cultural matter. My parents are longtime residents of Larnaca, and they live opposite the small park on Kilkis St. between the archaeological museum and the tennis club. The park is often filled with beer cans and other trash. My father, who is more than 70 years old, personally cleans the park because nobody else does it. I have made a series of inquiries to Town Hall and the museum - each says the other is responsible for upkeep of the park. Can you shed any light on who is responsible for this 'no man's land' and can any steps be taken to make sure the park is clean? I am an American journalist based in Turkey, but I travel frequently to Larnaca. Thanks and best regards. Christopher Torchia
