Real-Estate in Lebanon skyrokets


The number of real-estate sales operations in Lebanon in the first five months of 2008, rose by 19.4 percent (1/5th) compared to the same period of 2007.

This was coupled with a significant rise in property taxes receipts of 55.2 percent to reach LL204.7 billion. The Lebanese ministry of Finance said in a statement the ‘value of properties sold‘ in Lebanon over the past five months of this year rose by 72 percent to reach $1.993 billion.

It added that although property prices have been on an upward path in Lebanon, this rise has been at a slower pace than the global and regional increases in real-estate prices, thereby leading to a further interest in Lebanon’s real-estate sector.

The majority of collected property taxes in the first five months of 2008 were in:

  • Beirut with 30.3 percent of the total amount.
  • Baabda with 22.2 percent,
  • Metn with 19.1 percent,
  • Keserwan with 11.0 percent,
  • North with 7.1 percent,
  • South with 5.5 percent,
  • and the Bekaa Valley with 4.0 percent.

  6. Agreed Kheireddine. Lebanon has in its recent history had much potential for growth, the World Bank has seldom mentioned it and has been eying it more closely, its real-estate is one of its most solid assets. It’s an “almost” guaranteed return on investment, if its regional politics permits.
