Investing in residential real estate in Israel

We hear about many people from the United States and all over the world investing in residential real estate in Israel, but why invest in real estate in Israel? Especially when apartment prices are so high compared to the rest of the world.

The answer lies in the following reasons, according to research conducted with iKonnect Properties clients -

  1. Emotion, the Land of Israel is the object of prayers and hope throughout generations. Seen as the home and place of safety for the Jewish and Zionist community around the world. They want to be a part, to have a place. The best expression for that being an owner of land. Something that can be passed on to future generations.

  2. Resale prices of residential real estate in Israel have increased by over 90% on average in the last decade. (15.2% between 03.22 - 04.21 (!!) - According to the Central Bureau of Statistics in Israel.)

  3. Based on the above regarding the resale price in addition to rental income, residential real estate in Israel becomes a pretty good on the financial level.

  4. Real estate in general, is a real thing. Not just stocks on a piece of paper or virtual currency on a hard drive. A safe place for your capital. People will always need a place to live, your property will always have value.

The right investment in Israel real estate is usually about finding a property that will yield a high monthly rental income, in a good location. Good locations have been increasing in value quite steadily in recent decades with the increases in demand.

leaving the landlord with very few carrying costs to on the property aside from basic repairs, the landlord has to pay income tax (Usually 10%) on any property that is collecting more than 5,196 ILS in rent. This translates to approximately 3% - 4 % annual return and it possible to receive a portion of it in the form of monthly payments to the investor.
