01.01.2022
What a year it was in 2021. Looking back at 2021, we can summarize the year regarding real estate as becoming a sellers’ market. The prices went up in Israel by around 10% and in Jerusalem specifically around 9% at least. No one thought that this would be the outcome of a year filled with ups and downs with Corona, and closures in travel. Sow how did this happen? We believe that Black Lives Matter had...

New Law To The Buyer’s Benefit
01.04.2022

Until a week ago, if you bought a new property on paper and you went by the 20/80 payment schedule, you got screwed by the ‘cost of building index.’ Let me explain. ‘The cost of building index’ means that if the materials of a building being built were increased, such as wood, metals, tiles, etc., the buyer carried the burden of paying that extra cost. In a standard 150 sqm apartment, this meant...

Hot Real Estate Market
01.06.2022

When we entered Corona and throughout the last 2 years, we believed that we would see the prices decrease and many would take their properties off the market or decide not to sell or rent. We were proven wrong big time. During Corona, and now that we are sort of out of the woods, we are witnessing that the real estate market was and is booming. Properties are being put on the market for extraordinary...

Have you been lately in the City Center of Jerusalem? If you haven’t been, you should come and see it for yourself; you wouldn’t recognize it. Builders and developers have painted the town red with new and exciting construction of high-quality buildings. We can start with ‘Africa Israel’ with their project on Harav Kook St. The location is fantastic, it’s quiet, and right off of Ben Yehuda,...

Why Is Now The Time To Buy In Efrat
01.01.2021

As we see the light at the end of the tunnel and the new road to and from Efrat is being completed, as we speak, we also see the increase in prices in the various communities in Efrat. If prices in the older sections, such as Gefen, Rimon and Teena were between 8,000 to 10,000 NIS per sqm up to a year ago, we see now that the prices are already going up to around 12,000 to 13,000 NIS per sqm. Of course...

In the last couple of years there’s been a shift in where and what people would like to invest in. The areas that had the highest demand now have peaked in price,...
