Hurghada Property & Egypt's Red Sea Real Estate - The Book!

It was just over three weeks ago that I was writing to tell you that the ebook version of the Complete Guide to Hurghada was available. The reaction to the Guide was overwhelmingly positive and there was a huge surge in the number of registered members that we received in order to download it.

Such was the reaction to the book that we were immediately contacted by a publisher who wanted to rush-release it in book form, providing that we made a few changes to it. It’s been a crazy three weeks, but we managed it and so did the publisher, with the result that Propertastic’s Complete Guide to Hurghada Property and Egypt’s Red Sea Riviera Real Estate is now available in printed book form, available for an RRP of £9.99 from and all other online UK bookstores including Waterstones, Tesco, WHSmith and

Readers outside the UK can also obtain the book from their local Amazon, as the book is also stocked by Amazon in the US, Canada, Germany, France and Japan (but not in China for some reason).

Even if you already downloaded the free ebook version of the Guide, it’s still worth considering getting a copy of the brand new printed version because, not only does it come in a handy, pocket-sized "words printed on dead-tree pulp format", but it also includes 6,000 words of brand new content, including chapters on:

Flying to Hurghada
Buying Process
Living in Hurghada

Fancy a copy? So why not head over to Amazon now and grab yourself one? Here are the links that you need to get it today:

Amazon UK

Amazon Japan

If you do have an account with Amazon and you’ve read the Guide – even if it was the ebook version - could I ask a favour of you? Please could you click on your local link above and write a nice review of it for me plus give it five stars? It would make me very happy if you could.

Thank you!

If you don’t have an account with Amazon or any of the other online stores mentioned above and still want to order it, then you can also order it directly from the publisher.

For full details of how to order it from the publisher receiving a £1 discount and free postage and packing into the bargain, click here.

If you’re a bit sick and tired of my bleating on about Egypt, then you will be pleased to know that so am I, and so I am planning on giving more attention to the other 15 countries that we cover on Propertastic! over the coming weeks.

Can I interest you in some Egyptian Property, Sir?

In my last-but-one blog entry, I apologized for the fact that I haven't been as active either here or on the main Propertastic! site as I usually am because I have been very hard at work on two big projects.
One of these was Propertastic's Complete Guide to Hurghada Property and Red Sea Riviera Real Estate, and the other one I said I would tell you about a week later. That week became two weeks because I then got involved in yet another huge project that was even more urgent. Again I will tell you about that next week once it is released.
But anyway, let me tell you what I've been hard at work on.
As much as I enjoy nothing more than spending all my time sitting around in front of a PC researching international property and telling the whole world my thoughts, my bank manager, girlfriend, parents and everyone else who knows me aren't quite as impressed with my dedication and have suggested that it's time that I started to earn a proper living.
Several people have told me that I could put all of the research that I have made into the Egypt real estate market to good use by introducing potential buyers to developers who would then cross my palm with silver for every person I send to them.
Well, it sounded pretty good to me - better than getting a real job at least - and so this is what I have done. Ladies and gentlemen, may I introduce you to ...
Yes, my new baby is born - a new website that concentrates purely on Egyptian property, because that's what I know most about and that's what I believe in.
So, if all my (endless, recently) talk of buying property on the Red Sea Riviera has got you thinking that it might be the right investment for you, then maybe you would like to come and visit my lovely new site and perhaps think about making your inquiry via me rather than someone else. Whichever agent you deal with, you will end up at the developer in the end, so you might just as well deal with me as anyone else.
Don't expect the hard sell from me, because I'm pretty rubbish at selling. I'm good at talking and analyzing and so I can help you to get exactly the right property for you.
As well as offering property to UK buyers, my girlfriend will also be operating under the Egypt Real banner in Latvia. Ideally, I would like to set up a network of partners all over Europe to work with so that other nationalities will also be catered for. I know that Propertastic! gets visitors from all over the world and so it would be nice if they also have some local representative to deal with.
If you are reading this and you are based outside the UK and interested in offering the best of Egyptian property in your country, then I would very much like to hear from you to see if there's something that we can do together. Check out this page of the Egypt Real site if you are interested in finding out more information.
For the rest of you, take a look at my lovely new site now at:
