REAL ES TATE IN LEBANON 2011-2012

When you think about investing in real estate, the first thing that comes to mind is your home. For many people, their home is the single largest investment they will ever make. But have you ever stopped to consider that once you purchase a home it becomes part of your overall portfolio of investments? In fact, it’s one of the most important parts of your portfolio because it serves a dual role as not only an investment but also a centerpiece to your daily life. The difference between those that want and those that do is passion. You learn, you explore and as the passion for investing builds, it becomes a part of your life. In Lebanon there is a real demand for real estate. This demand is driven by the growth of Lebanese resident household, the large dispersion of Lebanese non residents across the world and a growing Arab demand of a secondary domicile as well.

Although prices are ever-increasing as they are in many other countries, the real estate market has little speculation. Though Lebanon was one of the few countries who survived the World Economic Crash and came out Stronger than ever. Real estate is traditionally considered an “alternative” investment class; One of the main differences between investing in a piece of real estate as compared to stocks or bonds is that real estate is an investment in the “bricks and mortar” of a building and the land it is built upon.

This makes real estate highly tangible, because unlike most stocks you can see and touch your property. This often creates substantial pride of ownership, but tangibility also has its downside because real estate requires hands-on management. You don’t need to mow the lawn of a bond or unplug the toilet of a stock! In this fresh tutorial, we will list several opportunities offered by our real estate market, local developers and ambitious contractors.
