Real estate investment sector in Egypt is one of the most important sectors affecting the Egyptian economy. The laws governing the real estate market are of paramount importance because they constitute the legal framework regulating the market. One of the most important laws to regulate the real estate market is Mortgage Finance Law. Mortgage finance sector provides medium and long-term financing for the acquisition of real estate, whether for economic purposes or for the purpose of financing, repairing or maintaining houses.

The importance of the real estate investment sector stems from the fact that it affects and is linked to many services and financial instruments such as mortgage finance, leasing, securitization, listing of real estate companies on the Stock Exchange as well as Real Estate Investment Trusts.
