We just found ourselves at the Dead Sea in Jordan for the Eid and have a new interest in property in Jordan and, in particular what the market is like for apartments in Amman.
Our flight to Amman was completely booked and while the majority of the passengers were Jordanian expats visiting family, a large number of the passengers were simply tourists looking to get out of Dubai for a long weekend or longer.
My neighbors on the plane were Jordanian and I asked about the market for property in Jordan. They said many of the tourists that come for the summer are looking for private accommodation (as opposed to a hotel) and that furnished apartments in Amman are always in high demand. We can see why. Just walking out the airport we were greeted with fresh, cool air. Although the Dead Sea was our destination, we found ourselves wishing we had a few more days so we could enjoy the fresh air and lovely landscapes of Amman.
After a few days, we were really kicking ourselves for not planning at least a week. We met tourists coming from the Red Sea and Petra. Others coming down from Amman for a day trip to the Dead Sea, Mount Nebo and Bethany Beyond the Jordan. Still others were making their way to Wadi Rum.
With the situation in this part of the world “strained” to say the least, Jordan is safe, attractive, full of historical sites, and offers fantastic outdoor activities and adventures. Seems to us it might be a good time to consider investing in real estate in Jordan.
