Buying A Flat In Hurghada


Im new to this site. I am looking to buy a flat in Hurghada but don't know where to start. Ive looked at many websites which only have small descriptions.

I would really appreciate any advice or tips

Thankyou in advance

I am looking as well. I want to make sure I get long term visa before I buy though. Make sure it has green contract and use your own lawyer to make sure no one is scamming you. There are a bunch of buildings that are not completed yet but people live in them lol.

Thankyou for the reply wow that sounds worrying. Yes Ive been reading about scams online which isn't to reassuring.

Im considering Turkey instead though property is cheaper in Egypt.

There are many things to consider before buying in Egypt. I owned a flat there for 3 years and then was lucky enough to sell it when I wanted to leave, but that was very difficult.
I would not recommend buying there if it is purely for investment purposes as the country and economy is very unstable. I was very lucky to get my money back out of the country as they have clamped down on that because of the economy and there are many new regulations now in place.

The latest is a 'tax' on foreign residents to name but one.

The biggest problem is the scammers and also unscrupulous lawyers. Plenty of people have had their lawyer steal their apartment out from right under their nose by putting the flat in their own name.

If you do buy a flat make sure it has a green contract, this gives you more safety when you buy. Many flats have been sold over and over again by people that do not even own them.

It is not only Egyptian's that run scams in Hurghada so be careful about trusting anyone.

I would recommend having a look at Rivermead Global Properties website as they have very good information available on their site plus they are trustworthy.

I would also go to the Hurghada Expats Facebook page where you can post questions etc

I hope that helps

Good luck!
