Why would it not be halal? Real estate is property which is a halal asset in and of itself. As long as the property is halal and the investment mechanism is halal, why would it be any different to other investments like gold and stocks?

In fact Wahed should really offer a window into real estate investing like it does for Sukuk, gold and stocks!

We are in the process of adding real estate to our portfolios.

No way that’s amazing. Jazakum Allahu Khayra. When will we hear back? Is there a rough roadmap?

Agreed, unless you are specifically investing into these to host haram activity, I would see no issues with it. I think these are one of the businesses all Muslims should get into to create good wealth and stability for muslims.

That’s amazing, please make sure it is advertised correctly, I would love to get into that. I can only see the value go up.

Although I would be wary. The housing market could potentially crash in the short term as we head into recession

I wonder how much autonomy we have with these real estates, do we have to pick ourselves or will you be doing all the work for us.

Oh interesting. @ReeceByfield is Wahed looking to also introduce angel venture capital like investing for the masses?

Assalamu alaykum, what is angel venture capital?

What is the most feasible and most secure way to start investing in real estate? I would like to get involved ASAP, but need the right guidance and the right steps, currently have zero knowledge on how it works and how to get involved.

Wa alaykum assalaam warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.

Venture capital (VC) is a form of private equity and a type of financing that investors provide to startup companies and small businesses that are believed to have long-term growth potential

These aren’t usually publicly available.

On initial thought this seems a v plausible view

Looking forward to this. Any sneak peak on how this would look

Don’t Wahed already offer that in the form of WahedX?

Generally real estate investors utilise interest-based loans

Another issues associated with real estate is not following shari principles of an ijara contract when renting the property.

Is this for all type of real estate?

What’s ijara contract?
