The real estate market in the Middle East has entered a correction phase in the year 2010 with a major portion of demand inflow from the residential segment. The demand is primarily generated by the low and medium income segment of the population and therefore the developers were focusing towards building affordable and economic housing properties to cater to their requirement. The future of the Middle East real estate market is expected to be favorable with stable growth in the long run due to mounting domestic demand for affordable residential properties, friendly government laws and surging government investments and inclining inbound travelers in the region.

The real estate market in Saudi Arabia has showcased a remarkable growth in 2010, primarily due to an increasing domestic demand for real estate properties. In addition, the arrival of religious and leisure tourists and travelers to the country has driven the market in the recent past and has resulted into lower vacancy rates of the retail shopping malls and hotel rooms.

The Egypt real estate market in the midst of global economic unrest has showcased a sustainable performance as compared to the other countries in the Middle East, who have been trying to overcome the prevailing market and economic conditions. A consistent increase in the demand for housing units has been recorded over the years, which has surpassed the supply due to the growing need for housing facilities to accommodate an increasing population. In addition, the traditional approach of the Egyptians to hold their properties rather than selling it during odd economic conditions along with the conservative mortgage market have restricted the country's real estate market's exposure to the global economic slowdown.
