The company is currently preparing to introduce the largest number of ready to move units to customer wishing to purchase in installments or cash, through information of these units available on the platform, according to Al-Fouly.
He explained that the platform will include information about the real estate market, studies and statistics, and the company aims to train a large number of young people interested in marketing in real estate market, in addition to granting a large space for real estate intended for export in the local and international market.
He said, “The plan that the state is currently working on establishing a national real estate ID system for properties will help export property through the platform because through the site, customer will be able to obtain information and data that will help him make a purchase decision. Companies will also be able to offer their units, whether for sale or rent, free. Therefore, foreign customer can search for his order on the platform and purchase what suits him.”
He disclosed that the company does not only target the Egyptian customer through the platform, but that exporting property is its main goal, and it is expected that the company will receive a request from real estate development companies to offer their units on this platform, which is expected to be launched by the end of 2024.

He further noted that a large number of exhibitions are useless, and that the Cityscape exhibition is considered the most successful exhibition and the return through participation in the exhibition is not for developers, but rather for customer.
He believed that property export, in order to reach this meaning, must be preceded by the export of other things to attract foreign investors to the state, such as marketing urban and development boom that has taken place in recent years, as well as marketing tourist areas and natural landscapes that exist in Egypt, and this is what countries are currently doing.
He stated that Egypt has so far 36 new smart cities that have been established in recent years, and they should be marketed and focused on, in addition to marketing the New Administrative Capital and New Alamein. Moreover, Egyptian citizen expatriating to the Gulf countries needs to be provided with housing that suits his capabilities and aspirations.
He also suggested that development companies tend to open offices in foreign countries so that this will help them open new markets for Egyptian real estate in the European and Gulf markets.
He concluded,” Egypt’s joining the BRICS will open new markets for Egyptian real estate with the BRICS member states. Therefore, the government should open representative offices in those member states to promote Egyptian real estate in countries such as India, Russia, and Brazil, and this matter contributes to enhancing the flow of foreign exchange to the Egyptian market.”
