Are you concerned about political risk in the Middle East?



Well-Known Member
Over the last few years we have seen a serious increase in the number of terrorist attacks around the world and for many investors the Middle East has become a no-go area. However, is it easy to be influenced by the media headlines and ignore the fact that there are some great real estate investment opportunities in the Middle East?

Is there sufficient potential return on property investments to offset the increased political risk?

If I may comment on this post, I think yeah there are many tensions in the region, but still there are safe havens like Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and Bahrain.
The local government made it easy to buy or rent an apartment in Bahrain to draw more investors to entice the real estate market.

It looks to me as though Saudi Arabia is an area to avoid at the moment?
