Egypt’s Property Prices Hike by 75% Since EGP Flotation

Real estate prices in the Egyptian market have hiked by an average of 75% since the EGP flotation in November 2016 until now, backed by rises in implementation costs and materials, Invest-Gate reports.

Mahmoud Abdel Halim, chairman of MREC for Integrated Real Estate Services, noted in a press statement on May 2 that the price spikes in some projects reached 85% following the decision in late 2016. He explained that the rates of price increases have stabilized relatively in the recent period, which confirms that most of the price hikes in the last two years were due to rising costs.

Additionally, Adel Halim pointed out that the period following the EGP flotation witnessed a great demand by a large number of financial liquidity holders on real estate, as it is deemed a safe haven due to its ability to maintain value.

“The spread of rent mechanism will contribute to promoting investment in the real estate sector and the entry of more foreign capital to Egypt and the success of  real estate export,” he elaborated, “The expansion of rent will increase the annual return on investment (ROI) to 14% and providing opportunities for investors to obtain increased periodic returns for resale purchases.”
