Hartlepool, United Kingdom (PressExposure) May 12, 2009 -- Egypt property prices are not going to drop from their current level, according to overseas property portal Property Abroad LTD Prices are as low as they will be and growth is expected to restart in the next 4-6 months, according to Julie Liddle, emerging markets analyst with the portal.
"Egyptian property was one of the most recent to begin benefiting from the boom in overseas property buying. Prices in the country have always been far lower than its closest rivals, namely Turkey and Cyprus, for that reason they have not had to fall in order to keep attracting the overseas buyers," she said.
Julie then went on to say something that could benefit the overseas property market in a big way, certainly clearing up something that some will have found puzzling.
"But it is not just the low prices, and it is not just Egypt. Off plan property in Egypt and most other countries, has always been aimed at international buyers, hence the marinas and celebrity golf courses et al. A house price correction happens when residents of an area cannot afford to buy their own homes, because off plan properties are not modelled on local buyers, there hasn't been the measurable corrections like there has in the UK and US for example, " she explained.
"So if you're waiting for off plan property prices to see some measurable across-the-board drop, you will wait a long time. However, developers are offering discounts and incentives to try and kick-start sales so look around and you should get a good deal," Julie concluded.
Property Abroad is currently advertising hundreds of properties for sale in Egypt, off plan and resale units throughout the country.
