"ANCIENT HISTORY WITH AN EYE ON THE FUTURE"
BEAUTY, HISTORY & INNOVATION
Israel is a country steeped in natural beauty and ancient history, but it is also a nation with its sights set firmly on the future. Expats moving to Israel are often drawn by the culture or by their faith, while others are attracted by the vibrant economy and thriving technology sector.
Growing urban areas such as Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and Haifa are popular relocation targets for expats from Europe, North America, Russia, Asia and Africa. The country’s housing market reflects this with new build properties springing up over the last 10 years.
Israel is also home to excellent international schools, despite public schools being very high quality and free. The Israeli health care system is world renowned and can expect high quality of life in this middle eastern state.
What types of properties are available?
The most common type of housing in Israel is the apartment – one story dwellings in a block of apartment units. However, other sought-after properties include Duplexes (multi story apartments), villas, cottages and penthouses.
What does an expat need in order to buy in ISRAEL?
There are no considerable restrictions for foreigners to purchase property in Israel. However, there may be a difference in taxes foreigners have to pay in comparison to Israeli nationals. There are also some differences in drafting the transaction’s documents for foreign buyers.
