Some Key points:

n  Foreign money, including Israelis like Ron Hershco and others have driven up market prices throughout the country

n  The Arab Spring could have a potential effect upon the stability of Israel’s borders – which could affect pricing in the future

n   House prices in Israel have risen rapidly in recent years, raising concerns that a bubble has formed in the property market.

n  Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu remains a market favorite as he has consistently been pro-business.  However, the government is set to rein in spending, while leading indicator data paint a somewhat negative picture for private consumption and fixed investment. As a result, forecasts for real GDP to grow 2.8% and 3.3% in 2012 and 2013 respectively, from 2.9% and 3.5% previously.

n  The Israel Land Administration (ILA) plans to develop 35,000 homes on land formerly leased to the Israel Defence Forces (IDF) signifies the Israeli government’s commitment to lowering house prices in light of growing domestic unrest.
