Real Estate investment in Egypt
One of the best and most significant types of investment in Egypt is real estate. Real estate investing involves buying a home with the intention of renting it out or selling it for a profit. As the Egyptian government has recently focused on developing numerous new cities, as we mentioned some of the significant ones above, this type of investment has been rising even more over the past few years.
Due to this trend, more Egyptian investors and businesspeople are eager to buy real estate in these emerging areas. As foreigners view investing in those areas as a worthwhile opportunity, it is also seen as a significant step towards real estate exporting, which has the effect of stimulating both the real estate market and the Egyptian economy more generally.
What are the benefits of real estate investment in Egypt?
Avoidance of Economic Inflation
Due to a property's ability to maintain value over time, real estate investment is a powerful tool during times of economic inflation, depreciation of the Egyptian pound against the dollar, and rise in the cost of goods and services.
It is regarded as the best investment option among the rest because it offers higher returns, lower risk, and inflation protection. For all those reasons, investors are always keen to invest their money in real estate despite any increase in property prices and market fluctuations.
Long and short term profit
Long-term and short-term gains can be made from investing in real estate. You can purchase a property and make quick money by renting it out. Or you could purchase a property, make improvements to it, and sell it years later to make long-term profits.
Safe income source after retirement
A great way to generate a reliable income after retirement is through real estate investing. Anyone who wants to invest their money to be able to generate a consistent income for their future can do so successfully.

Real Estate Market in 2023!
According to Daily News Egypt, due to rising inflation and price spikes in construction materials, property prices in Egypt will undoubtedly rise over the first quarter of 2023. As a result, developers will be forced to raise the price of available units for sale.
It is estimated by the developers and investors that the building of new cities in Egypt will continue its process in 2023, following the vision of Egypt 2030. As these cities and big projects attain a big part of Egypt’s projects.
Additionally, both domestic and international investors have a high demand for commercial and administrative space, particularly in the New Administrative Capital. The property market in West Cairo and Sphinx Airport will also benefit from the Grand Egyptian Museum's opening. This is consistent with Egypt's efforts to grow and advance in this area.
Although the Egyptian government has given the local real estate market a lot of attention, there is still much that needs to be done to regulate it. For example, more rules, laws and regulations between the buyers, developers, and investors to sustain the growth. We’re anticipating to see this through 2023!
