Real estate investing and the Middle East

Real estate investing is a great form of making money. It can be a very lucrative form of acquiring money if you know what you’re doing. In order to earn from real estate you need to either purchase, do some repairs and sell it for more money than it cost you all together, rent it to a tenant and get paid monthly, rent it to a company as a work space or any other kind of management of your property. It seems very appealing and many people would like to give it a try because they see it as something anyone can do, but in reality it takes a lot of your time and lots and lots of planning.

Since most people don’t have initial capital to invest in real estate, they turn to banks for loans. By poorly coordinating with your assets you will have less money than the cost of the monthly interest rate the bank offered and eventually you will go bankrupt, making you poorer than you were when you started, so if you plan to invest in real estate, make sure you plan it thoroughly.

Real estate crowdfunding has been booming across the United States and Europe (namely Germany & the UK), with new hopes for a strong development in the Arab World; a growing market of over 250 million individuals. A recent article, gave some good perspective on the issue. On the other hand, if your looking for a more mature market, with less risk, you may consider one of the top crowdfunding websites from the US.

Many people make mistakes by only thinking locally, but if you widen your horizons, you might actually see a great potential in some further away area. Don’t be afraid to look further away from your home, you won’t lose anything, only thing that may change is the profitability of your investment.

Following this logic, middle eastern investors started thinking Globally and made a world their playground. They aren’t bound by borders anymore and they are primarily hunting for the best bargain. In recent reports it is said that middle eastern investors are planning to invest 180 billion dollars outside of their borders, of which 80 percent will go to Europe. Of course, this investment won’t go into housing, it will go into commercial real estate market but the principle is staying the same.

Just as these middle eastern investors are thinking globally, you could do the same with a bit more money than you would spend locally. Egypt is one of the best places to invest and its market will only rise. As one of the leading places for tourism, Egypt will always be profitable since each year people will come here for a vacation. The Cairo real estate market overview is now available for download.
