    Hello all.

    I'm thinking about investing in Salama Valley, Fez, Morocco, but prefer to deal directly with developers. Does anyone know who the developer is.

    All feedback appreciated.

    the developer for this is Maroc Asur Residence. This is the morrocon arm of a French company called Residence Pasteur.The managing director is a gentleman called Philippe Deutch. i dont think you will be able to deal direct with the deveoper as he has given all of the units on this project to one company to sell.I work in partnership with this company and would love to have a chat with you if you are interested in this.This is the only project in fez that has been given planning for buiding on the hills and in the whole of fez only 3 projects have been given planning.
    I believe i can offer you a good deal on this .Give me a call 07764 300185

    I've also been looking at this development (also called slopes of Fedela) and there is not just one UK agent selling them. (I am not an agent

    I've been looking at riads in Marrakesh and latterly Fes and a small riad once restored goes for :
    Marrakesh £170k
    Fes £30k + £30k restoration = £60k
    price difference £90k = Fes about 1/3rd of the price.

    Why then is this new build development in Fes not 1/3rd of the price of a new build in Marrakesh?

    Slopes of Fedela E155000/£105,000
    Marrakesh equivalent £315,000 - this buys a 3 bed 3 bath house in the most prestigious development in Marrakesh - Domaine de L’Akhdar. (I'm not an agent and they are all sold). Elsewhere a luxury 2 bed can be found for £250,000.

    I'm not putting this development down, it does look really nice, experienced developer etc and I do believe Fes has great potential - my point is why is it so expensive firstly in comparison to restored riads in the Medina (£60k) and
    secondly in comparison to Marrakesh, which is a much more developed and proven market?

    thank you for the further information. You seem to be suggesting it is unique for Fes and that is why it is so much more expensive (+£40k) than a restored riad in the Medina - fine, I can accept an increase for that - especially as this deal does have a private plunge pool, small garden area and I beleive is fully furnished.

    But, why is it pretty much comparable to properties in Marrakesh and not considerably cheaper as I believe it should be?

    Are we talking about the same project .Has it got a buyback gaurantee and a garanteed rental of 7% for nine years.
    The finance is 30% deposit and 70% mortgage?
  10. Sunnyshores

    Sunnyshores New Member

    sahara and investor 27 - yes you do seem to be talking about the same development - Salama Valley also called slopes de Fedala (by the company who did Jardins de Fedela).

    Are you able to explain the high price as per my postings above?
  11. sahara

    sahara New Member

    ok i not going to go on too long but as you say you can get a renovated riad in the medina for for 60-70k.
    From what i understand riads do not often have gardens they have a courtyard in the middle.Riads do not come with plunge pools.Riads do not come fully furnished down to cutlery.
    Riads do not come with a gaurantee of an income for 9 years.With a riad you do not have on site medical care free og charge.Riads do not come with the gaurantee that if the market dips you have a buyer that will at least pay you what you paid for it.Riads do not come with free flights for 2 people for 3 years and a gift of 900 euros to spend on site.
    I hope this goes some way to explaning the price differance.
  12. Sunnyshores

    Sunnyshores New Member

    Sahara - OK thanks.

    I was not comparing riads with new builds. I was comparing the price differential
    between riads in Marrakesh and riads in Fes (one third) and then looking for the the same price differential between new build in Fes and new build in Marrakesh.

    As I said I can acept a difference between riad prices and new build luxury prices (although £40k may be pushing it a bit and riads are in limited supply and have proved to be much more desireable that new builds in the Marrakesh market).

    What I was asking is - Why the new build price in Fes is not significantly cheaper than a new build in Marrakesh?
  13. sahara

    sahara New Member

    The answer to this is i do not Know, but on the same scale you could ask why is a villa in saidia an unknown destination selling for the same price as villas in marrakesh. This argument could be the same for all new build that are being offered in various unknown destinations across morocco.
  14. Sunnyshores

    Sunnyshores New Member

    OK - hadnt considered that. And in Saida not only is the market unproven, there actually is NO market or toursits or resales at present.
    Thanks for the discussion - as I said I'm not arguing against the development, it does look very nice and certainly has some attractive financial features all guaranteed.

    I've just managed to secure a reservation at Salama Valley. Is there anyone else on here who has actually bought there too ?

    Buying at Salama

    I am considering purchasing at Salama too. Has anyone found any useful information either way.

    I do think the property seems expecsive.
    What happens if it's not built on time?
    What happens if Morroco goes through politicial upheaval. Is the insurance still valid for a flattened building?

    thanks in advance for any advice.

    Salama Valley

    I have a friend who has invested and wants me to co-invest. Hence my question.

    Any advice. To me it feels like a beach property no-where near the coast. Surely if you visit Fez you want the husstle and history of the town?
