Why Invest in Moroccan Property?

Property investment in Morocco allows investors to follw both the "buy to let" investment strategy and also the "pure investment" strategy . The Morrocan property market is growing quickly as is its tourism trade creating huge requirements for rental accomodation which in turn opens the door for "buy to let" investors to generate solid rental yields. The open skies policy in effect from the 1st Jan 2006 will help increase tourism making it easier for low cost airlines to service destinations in Morocco and creating competition which brings down the cost of airfares.

The investor looking purely for capital gains can potentially also use Morocco as an investment vehicle. With the value of property growing at 15% -30% per annum (30% Homes Overseas Magazine) based on last year figures its clear to see that Morocco property investment is far more interesting to a "pure" investor than almost all other current locations.

In Tangier for eample a "buy to let" investor would after 3 years be required to pay 22% on 60% of the generated rental income from his "buy to let" investment property in Morocco.
