Smart Property Investment Choices In Egypt Image


The demand for affordable luxurious properties will always remain high in Egypt, as you notice when you are driving around the city and realize the amount of billboards advertising real estate in their developmental areas. The real estate industry just like any other business is all about supply and demand. Despite the instabilities witnessed since the Egyptian pound devaluation, the property market has remained quite stable. With the Egypt economy being in flux because the all the classes have devalued with the high class going to middle and so on. Surprisingly, this has had the supply in Egypt exceeding the recent demand.

With the demand rising for new properties between residents since 2018, the growing population of Egypt has reached over 100 million people, which all have been faced the real estate market one way or another. If they would have chosen to purchase a property, rent a property or even the various properties provided by the amount of organizations that have allowed their employees to reside in the country for a few years. With all this information discussed, you should understand that this is the best time to invest within the real estate sector and be able to make a profitable return in the nearby future.

Although the demand to invest in real estate is always high but for certain investors the high prices within the current market make it less possible of a chance to risk. Whether they are planning to invest in residential households or commercial properties, not many investors have enough capital to manage such an high investment. Which in return has had most investors turning to smaller units such as studios, one to two bedroom apartments located in less populated areas. But with House Solution, we seek to help real estate investors find the best deals that would offer both value in appreciation and a profitable return. 


Investing in real estate isn’t always the first option for many people. They would consider what would they really do with their lifetime savings, would they invest it in foreign currency or gold? But most people should consider and invest within the real estate industry as it is a lifetime investment that when you make the right choices can change your lifestyle as well.

If you are looking forward to have that retirement home that you have saved for or a household that pursuing to get married and raise children, the market will always have what you need with a suitable payment plan that would make it easier for you whether short term or long term depending on your budget on the investment. With the population rate growing over 2 million per year, which can lead to over a million marriages with each year, which can lead to half a million housing units in potential demand.

With the devaluation of the currency and the property developers raising in the process, there is not much care towards the people as much as most people are considering where their next salary will be received. Which doesn’t make it much of a surprise when the private sectors per year are over 50 thousand units, targeting only the elite 10 percent of Egyptian residents. Many potential investors should understand that over 15 percent of the land of Egypt is actually inhabited, leaving 85 percent with potential real estate developmental projects. Most projects are currently being constructed within Cairo and the areas around Giza while leaving housing projects in Upper Egypt being required and in return a profitable investment.

PURCHASE VS. RENT

The prices to purchase real estate in Egypt, regarding developers are in belief that the prices are more than fair due to the fact that most of the installments for luxurious properties can actually have a duration of a decade to be completed. The current method used by developers nowadays would be the flexible payment method, which allows the home buyer to pay their installments in a duration of a decade as well but with no down payment in the process.

Since there has been a devaluation in the currency in Egypt, buyers would still have the benefit in paying toward their installments for 3-5 years with atleast a 20-30 percent down payment. Egyptian citizens who once believed that the prices were high before the devaluation, they are now considering many options as most citizens don’t have the proper funds since the devaluation has occurred. The client who desired to purchase a large property is now looking into smaller properties to make a better investment and not having to pay much capital if possible.

Renting in the real estate market in Egypt has been showing an increase within the studio apartments and smaller locations that would usually include 2 bedrooms and less. Since there are a lot of younger people nowadays that would prefer properties that are both comfortable and affordable towards their budget. Most independent people who are young at age would usually prefer renting rather than purchasing a property in their name.

Due to the currently insane prices that are just increasing, for most youngsters it makes it difficult for those who are willing to grow their career path so they would choose to rather rent than purchase a property with installments. The demand for smaller locations has increased as well as the new office and modern furnished office spaces. The newer office spaces are just basic locations that have been situated to handle business affairs as well.   

The upcoming generation of Egyptian citizens have the point of view of actually starting their own businesses rather than joining an office job that would occupy their time, effort and most of the time isn’t as reliable as most might assume. They would then choose to rent their own office space, purchase some office furniture such as desks and shelves and just like that they are ready to conduct their business matters.

Start-up business and small businesses have increased the demand of the residential properties more than most people would like to imagine. On the other hand, the higher prices within the real estate market in Egypt makes most newly married couples be forced to ditch their cultural tradition and actually be married in a home that is rented and not purchased as past generations have been accustomed. They would choose to rent a furnished or unfurnished apartment for at least a year and see where life and their careers can take them from there.

PAST VS. PRESENT

The past law of renting in the real estate market in Egypt has been stated that if you choose to rent in that apartment for life then your children can actually inherit it in the end. Which makes both yourself and your children to be paying the same amount agreed upon on the actual rental agreement even if there has been a decade since that contract has been signed. In the process, many landlords have lost money and their properties were losing appreciation value as well.

In 1996, the Egyptian government stopped that law with only one exception which is that if the contract has already been signed before the legal law has passed then it would still be acceptable. The current law of renting in the real estate market in Egypt states that the landlord can determine the rent of the property in which they can increase the value. Most tenants would rent the property with the real value for an amount of money for a certain amount of time as the contract will be stated all these terms and conditions. The benefit behind the new law of renting in Egypt is that it assures the rights of both parties, the tenant and the landlord.

THE DOWNFALL BEHIND RENTING

Most people who resort to renting, actually just solve a current problem but they will be facing long term problems ahead such as the 10 percent increment that is applied annually by the landlord for the rent. Although the original law of Egypt states that no more than 10 percent should be incremented by the landlord, it doesn’t state how the increase should be implemented.

With most landlords increasing the rent, it makes most of the tenants to keep paying more and more with each upcoming year. In the process it makes most residents only be renting for a year because they can either choose to go to a better place with a small amount increase towards the rent or they can choose somewhere else that can be cheaper in a less populated location. With the procedure not being so easy and stable for most people, it makes them feel insecure and feeling nomadic from one time to another.

Tenants who have families or even the newly married couples would actually lack the feeling of security due to the issues of renting and the price increasing with year, which can actually lead to many disagreements and in such cases divorces and unsettlements.

SUPPLY AND DEMAND

When it comes to the most populated countries in the world, the country of Egypt has been ranked 14th on that list, being the most populated country in both the Middle East and among the Arab countries. It has been listed to have 100 million and more citizens in the country. The population of Egypt increases about 2 million with each upcoming year ahead. Which is a result in the vast demand for real estate properties in the country because the demand is both high and affordable. It is stated that the private sector properties are around 10 percent of the elite classes in Egypt.

This is a result to the real demand for housing for even the middle class that is included in Egypt, while the lower classes that are being neglected or rejected for most installment plans due to overload of expenses and debts.

DEVELOPMENTAL PROJECTS BY THE EGYPTIAN GOVERNEMENT

In 2018, The president of Egypt and the government started giving much more attention towards the development of social housings and slums. The government since then has developed more than 100 areas and planning to develop thousands more by the year of 2021. 

It has been told that by the end of 2019, the Port Said will be slum-free which makes around 80 thousand unites being built and developed in the process. The government has invested over 5 billion Egyptian Pounds working on the development of the country in serving over 300 thousand citizens from places that can seem unsafe.

SHOULD YOU INVEST IN REAL ESTATE

As the question is brought up often, the future of the real estate market in Egypt is unstable due to the current economic situation and the devaluation of the Egyptian currency, it makes most investors feel unsafe about investing within the real estate industry. However the real estate market in Egypt continues to rise and develop offering many people the chance to put their trusted earnings towards many investment ventures.

Many people would consider purchasing property such as villas, apartments, twin houses or even smaller properties such as studios for their own children, which in the future is still considered a profitable investment. There are other types of investment that can be used solely for passive income such as people purchasing property, furnishing it and having it prepared for renting it to tenants and making a good amount in return.

With other investments such as purchasing a property and having to flip the property, maintain it for a year or two and possibly making a quick profitable return in the process.

With most properties usually being paid in cash or in short installments, once the load has been completed, only then can they actually choose to sell the property.

FOREIGN INVESTMENT

According to the Egyptian law number 230 of 1996, it actually is stated that foreigners can actually purchase property within Egypt. But it is also stated that foreigners are not permitted to purchase more than two properties in the country as the only purpose will be for family residence.

To many foreigners, the Egyptian real estate market especially in Cairo is a major attraction as well as it is a profitable investment. Since the Egyptian revolution, expats have chosen to come back to Egypt and further their investments as to prove that Chinese developers have even showed an interest by providing a 20 billion dollar investment towards many new projects in Egypt.

There have been other investments provided by many Arab investors not only in residential units but also exceed the hospitality and many other projects such as popular malls, airport developmental halls and even within the Suez Canal.

IN CONCLUSION 

The real estate market in Egypt has been unstable yet increasing with the many developmental projects in which also the many investment opportunities.
