What Makes Them Good Investments


Morocco CuisineMorocco EconomyMorocco Economy

Quality city centre homes are becoming more and more attractive to investors in Morocco property. Shrewd investors know that well positioned city apartments in Morocco can be relied upon to generate healthy rental yields and can be rented out all year round to the increasingly affluent local market. They also know that city centre holiday rental properties are benefiting from the upsurge in Moroccan tourism.

Moroccan Properties Deliver

While some people wish to "escape to the country", many more are drawn to the high-octane attractions that come with city living. Needless to say, Morocco's scenic beauty is breathtaking, but so is the thrill of Moroccan city life. Being where the action is opens up all kinds of possibilities. Whether it's vibrant night time entertainment, appealing historical and cultural offerings or a wide choice of tempting eating places, Moroccan cities consistently deliver.

The recent phenomenon of large-scale, western standard property development in the atmospheric cities of Tangier and Marrakech pays testament to the demand for quality, centrally located dwellings from Morocco's newly emerging professional elite. With city centre properties in Marrakech and Tangier also beginning to come to the attention of switched-on overseas property buyers, there has never been a better time to invest in Morocco properties.

Good News for Tangier and Marrakech Property Buyers

Over the last few years, Tangier has enjoyed a major tourism renaissance; the number of visitors to the city has risen by 43%* but interestingly, there has not been a corresponding increase in hotel capacity. With the dynamics of supply and demand stacking in favour of tourist letting sector, owners of buy-to-let Tangier properties will find these statistics particularly reassuring.

Those who have bought property in Marrakech are enjoying the effects of the record numbers of visitors passing through Marrakech International Airport. The overall figure for travellers using Morocco's airports currently stands at an impressive 9.2 million passengers per year. Morocco's Airports Authority (ONDA) wants the country's airports to be able to handle at least 30 million passengers each year by 2010. Source: ONDA (Annual Report - Published Feb 2008)

Recent samplings of holiday rental rates by Moroccan Sands' research department indicate that city apartments in Morocco are commanding healthy tourist rental yields. Our researchers found many examples of 1 and 2 bedroom properties in Tangier achieving between €40 and €70 (Euros) per night during high season (April - Sept). Trendy city centre 2 bedroom apartments in Marrakech* were renting for between £350 and £480 (GBP) per week. *Source: holidaylettings.co.uk

In a poll by members at www.totalproperty.com, Tangier was easily voted the most desirable city for properties in Morocco. Sixty seven percent of voting members indicated that Tangier property represented a sound investment prospect. Members also rated properties in Marrakech highly, with the city coming in a comfortable second.

Healthy Financial Rewards

With the increasing drift away from traditional beachside holidays to more activity based diversions, particularly the boom in city breaks, the demand for well-located city centre properties has enjoyed a sharp upturn in recent years. Moroccan Sands has noted this trend and are pleased to offer a range of attractive city centre apartments which have been carefully chosen to allow investors in Morocco property to enjoy the healthy financial rewards that city centre investments can realise.
