Answer this Question

If you have not spent a lot of time in Egypt, you should rent before even thinking about buying. We asked expats there about the buy vs. rent decision...

"Buying a home in Egypt can be a great investment, as the country has a strong economy and real estate market. However, it is important to consider the cost of living in Egypt, as well as the availability of financing options, before making a decision. Renting a home in Egypt can be a great option for those who are not ready to commit to a long-term purchase, as it allows for more flexibility and can be more affordable in the short-term. Ultimately, the decision to buy or rent a home in Egypt should be based on individual needs and preferences," commented one expat who made the move to Egypt.
