You need only glance at any Israeli news site to see that the local economy is booming despite a worldwide pandemic. In the first quarter of 2021, a staggering 10 Israeli companies obtained unicorn status – bringing the total Israeli unicorns into the 60s. Israel currently has over 7,000 active startups and the largest number of NASDAQ-listed companies (outside of North America and China). If you have money to invest, now is, without a doubt, a great time to put your confidence in Israel. The only question that remains is whether to invest in Israeli stock or to buy property.

The truth is, you don’t actually have to chose, you might be able to do a bit of both, but here are some reasons why Israeli real estate is such a safe bet:

Why You Can’t Go Wrong With a Real Estate Investment in Israel….

Your Own Stake in the Land-Jewish people throughout the centuries yearned to come to Israel and would be astounded to see the modern, vibrant, successful country it is today. What better way to express your commitment to our incredible land (especially if you’re not ready to make Aliyah) than to buy a property? Many Israel real estate owners are able to enjoy their investment by using their homes for vacations. Sukkot in Jerusalem? Summer break on Herzliya beach? Passover in Netanya.

Just think, you could be sitting on your balcony overlooking the sea, and dining out at a different amazing restaurant every night – all the while knowing you’ve made a valuable investment that is steadily increasing in value. You can’t do that with stocks! If you can’t use your property today, you can rent it out and get a great return, or pass it on to your kids as a gift – we doubt they’ll refuse.

Stable Investment- While returns on stocks fluctuate wildly, property investments in Israel have remained stable and mostly gain in value over time – a 4% rise over the course of 2020 and an additional 4% rise expected through 2022, to be precise. 

Urban Renewal- The country-wide urban renewal scheme means that aging properties will most likely get a facelift at some point. Not only does this make them more attractive, but also raises their value and lowers the chances of depreciation over the long term.

Plenty of Choice- Whether you prefer a sea view or a hilltop sanctuary, a foothold in a busy urban sprawl, or a chance to reside a stone’s throw away home from the Old City in Jerusalem – Israel pretty much has it all.
