Buy-Rent Indicator (3-bedroom house-villa in the same location and with the similar facilities):

  • Nicosia – 25
  • Paphos – 28
  • Farmagusta – 35
  • Larnaca – 21
  • Limassol – 23

The buy-to-rent indicator calculates how many years you can rent a house, to reach the average purchase price of the property in this region – without credit, maintenance or operating costs at the property in addition incurred. The lower the buying-rent ratio, the more worthwhile the purchase of your own home and the higher the potential profits for investors.

According to world practice if indicator up to 25 option “Buy” is recommended, at a value of over 25 is economically sensible to rent. However this approach does not take into account many factors, like price changing, deposit rates, and many others, among them the most important that it does not make decision for scenario “what will be after…”

How to protect yourself from hot weather

0

Drink Plenty of Fluids

Increase your fluid intake, regardless of your activity level. Don’t wait until you’re thirsty to drink.

Don’t drink liquids that contain alcohol, or large amounts of sugar-these actually cause you to lose more body fluid. Also avoid very cold drinks, because they can cause stomach cramps.

Replace Salt and Minerals

Heavy sweating removes salt and minerals from the body. These are necessary for your body and must be replaced. If you must exercise, drink two to four glasses of cool, non-alcoholic fluids each hour. A sports beverage can replace the salt and minerals you lose in sweat.

Wear Appropriate Clothing and Sunscreen

Wear as little clothing as possible when you are at home. Choose lightweight, light-colored, loose-fitting clothing. Sunburn affects your body’s ability to cool itself and causes a loss of body fluids. It also causes pain and damages the skin. If you must go outdoors, protect yourself from the sun by wearing a wide-brimmed hat (also keeps you cooler) along with sunglasses, and by putting on sunscreen of SPF 15 or higher.

Schedule Outdoor Activities Carefully

If you must be outdoors, try to limit your outdoor activity to morning and evening hours. Try to rest often in shady areas so that your body’s thermostat will have a chance to recover.

Pace Yourself

If you are not accustomed to working or exercising in a hot environment, start slowly and pick up the pace gradually. If exertion in the heat makes your heart pound and leaves you gasping for breath, STOP all activity. Get into a cool area or at least into the shade, and rest, especially if you become lightheaded, confused, weak, or faint.

Stay Cool Indoors

Stay indoors and, if at all possible, stay in an air-conditioned place. If your home does not have air conditioning, go to the shopping mall or public library-even a few hours spent in air conditioning can help your body stay cooler when you go back into the heat. Electric fans may provide comfort, but when the temperature is in the high 40s, fans will not prevent heat-related illness. Taking a cool shower or bath or moving to an air-conditioned place is a much better way to cool off. Use your stove and oven less to maintain a cooler temperature in your home.

Adjust to the Environment

Be aware that any sudden change in temperature, such as an early summer heat wave, will be stressful to your body. Limit your physical activity until toy become accustomed to the heat.

Use Common Sense

  • Avoid hot foods and heavy meals.
  • Drink plenty of fluids and replace salts and minerals in your body.
  • Dress infants and children in cool, loose clothing and shade their heads and faces with hats or an umbrella.
  • Limit sun exposure during mid-day hours and in places of potential severe exposure such as beaches.
  • Do not leave infants, children, or pets in a parked car.
  • Provide plenty of fresh water for your pets, and leave the water in a shady area.
