Heading into the new year, Egypt’s real estate industry is on a growth trajectory, data from a recent JLL report shows.
Egypt’s property market is growing at a rapid rate and many developers, both domestic and international, are responding positively to this hike in demand by launching new, residential offerings across the country.
Over the course of the past 12-months, just under 20,000 residential units were completed in Cairo. This represents a 40% increase on those delivered in 2020 and takes Greater Cairo’s total residential stock to around 227,000 units.
Not only has demand for property risen over the past year, but there has also been an upward trend in sale and rental prices with average residential prices increasing by around 8% in Q4 of 2021.
Areas that have seen a notable growth in residential stock include Egypt’s New Administrative Capital, 6th October City and the New Cairo area.
One month into the new year, we take a look at some of the latest, residential developments set to open in Egypt in 2022.
