Property Investor Show confirms Egypt is on the up

The increasingly positive mood in Egypt, regularly reported in the general media and clearly evident in investor enquiries during the build up to the recent Property Investor Show, shows no sign of abating.

The consensus opinion that the emergence of a new democratic nation and creation of a freer market will bring more prosperity to Egypt is being reflected in developer and agent enquiries to the show - with developer For Free Company,
Building and Tourism Development, Egypt being another addition to the confirmed October exhibitors.

"... Enquiries, particularly those from the UK investment community remain at very healthy levels confirming buyer confidence in the long-term future of Egypt – a future which looks even more positive now than in 2010.

Photo by Richard I'Anson
Someone showed me the new colour Lonely Planet Discover Egypt book as it contains an article by me but imagine my surprise to see a lovely photo of the Nile, cruise boats, Theban Hills and hot air balloons with the Goubli flats slap bang in the middle. The orange building. So I contacted the photographer and he kindly gave me permission to use it. So if you have ever wondered just how close Flats in Luxor was to the Nile now you can see.

Internet Marketing Event

My very good friend Colette Mason gave a free Internet Marketing Workshop, the very first in Luxor. This was an imitative to give a boost to tourism in Luxor post revolution. The audience was totally enthralled and she has some 6 follow up appointments before she leaves. A huge success. There is already talk of another one. For those of you that missed the presentation I have got copies of the DVD she handed out so please get in touch.

Tahrir Villa Completed
Mahmoud has completed Tahrir Villa. Our top spec, luxury villa with 4 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms. The bedrooms are downstairs to take advantage of the cool and upstairs is a totally open plan living area. All furniture is top quality from Cairo. The roof can contain hot tub, gym, barbecue, bar, there is plenty of room for lots of options. Colette and another friend Steve Mitchell have helped us with photos and these are currently being put up on a new website.

Tahrir Villa Website
Big thanks to Colette and Steve for setting this up. There are lots photos and we will be adding more.
