As the Delta variant rages across the world, the Government has scrambled to slow down the spread of the virus in Israel using various means: Visitors from numerous countries have been banned; passengers from many places have been forced to quarantine upon arrival, even when fully vaccinated; and an aggressive campaign to give all 60-year olds and above a “booster” shot is now underway. All the while, real estate activity in Israel remains high and prices have not waned. Recently, there have been rumblings that Purchase Tax may be increased for real estate investors and foreign buyers to slow down the rate at which home prices are increasing.
The following is a selection of real estate deals that took place in July 2021 that involved English-speaking real estate agents in Israel.
