Cityscape 2014 Showcases Homes for All Budgets

By Hilary Diack

Ask any real estate professional about their take on the current market, and odds on they will project a sizeable increase in prices over the coming period, attributable to rising land prices and construction costs. With that in mind Cairo West Magazine spent an interesting day at Cityscape 2014 to see what was on offer. A plus, finally public space, gardens and greenery, and shared leisure facilities seem to be integrated into most developments at all price levels these days, enhancing lifestyles for everyone.

Attractively Affordable

Not everyone wants to splash out on a large villa, tempting though it may be. Young couples starting out generally look for something more budget-friendly as a first home, and luckily developers have started coming up with attractively designed apartments to meet the ongoing demand. We liked these options, all under the 1 million EGP mark.
