Bahrain Real Estate & Property Market
Bahrain property, apartments, villas, office space
The economic growth of Bahrain has been spectacular and quite belies the small land area and relatively limited population of the country. The infrastructure all over the country in terms of the road network, the airport, telecommunication, public services, educational institutions, and medical services have all been ranked among the top-most in the world.
The government is eagerly and aggressively pushing for more growth by offering many incentives to foreign investors. This has been brought about by the healthy proportion of global expatriates that mix with the general population. This has resulted in a boom in Bahrain property in terms of apartments, villas, and office space and more and more are coming to either work there or as tourists.
Bahrain property has also become a good investment among corporate investors due to Bahrain's unique position related to the trade and industry and the 100-million people market that is open and available to anyone who decides to start a business in Bahrain. Bahrain property is expected to become even more valuable in the near future due to the high demand and the limited land area of the country of islands.
Expatriates are also causing a real estate boom in Bahrain property, as many of these who work in Saudi Arabia prefer to reside in Bahrain. Commuting is easy via the King Fahad Causeway between the two countries.
Since English is widely spoken and understood throughout Bahrain along with the traditional Arabian there is an added benefit for expatriates to live there.
