Are Marrakech Properties A Safer Bet?

Posted in Property News by Colin Timms Wednesday June 4, 2008

Moroccan Sands has learned that online poker operator, chilipoker.com are offering their membership a chance to fly to Marrakech for the (One Million Euro) Marrakesh Open Poker Tournament which takes place later this month.

Marrakech Properties: A Great Deal Better

To qualify for the draw, players need to accumulate enough frequent player points. The lucky winners will get an all expenses paid trip this beguiling city which is regarded by many as the jewel in Morocco’s tourism crown.

For those who like a flutter, where better to indulge their passion for poker… Although it is hoped that those fortunate gamblers travelling to Morocco will find time to leave their smoke-clouded poker tables and explore this magnificent old city. With its sultry courtyard gardens, bustling souks and lively marketplaces, anyone not allowing sufficient time to absorb Marrakech’s heady atmosphere, however much they win, is indeed a loser!

After taking in the delights of Marrakech, the high rollers might want to consider a far surer way to make their money work for them, namely, investing in Marrakech properties! It’s true that international property investing may not have the “glamour” associated with tournament poker, but as many investors in Marrakesh properties have discovered, the rewards can be equally great but without the risks associated with the turn of a playing card.

Tom Browning of Moroccan Sands commented: “Poker might offer a way for a lucky few to get rich quick but investing in Marrakech properties is a far safer way to secure future capital growth”. He added: “Superb centrally located Marrakech apartments such as Les Terraces de Gueliz are where I would place my stake money”.
