The consumer-focused show, targeted towards mid-income earners in the country, will offer up new and existing residential projects in the country at affordable prices from the show’s 45-strong exhibitor list.

“We’re excited to launch this new show for consumers in Egypt as we firmly believe that our exhibitors will speak directly to the demand from homebuyers,” says Tom Rhodes, Exhibition Director at Next Move Egypt.

“Our exhibitors will be offering more than just houses, they’ll be offering homes in thriving communities in Egypt’s old and new cities. Buyers are traditionally looking for apartment units, townhouses or villas in areas that are close to places of work, schools, retail and hospitals and our exhibitors will offer them an array of options.”

on the other hand, Exhibitors are confident that it’s the perfect time to invest in the Egyptian real estate.

Faten Elshetry of Alsafwa Real Estate says that the Egyptian market is experiencing a transformation because of the opportunities it’s currently providing for homebuyers and due to the development of new cities, such as the New Administrative Capital.

Alsafwa will be launching Capital Heights 1, a 4 billion Egyptian pound investment in the heart of the new capital, with a 0% down payment and instalments up to 7-years.

In addition, Shireen Badawi, Marketing Manager at Oriental Urban Development (OUD Egypt), maintains that the greatest segment of growth in the real estate sector is in the lower and middle-income housing segments due to population growth.
