Real Estate Cycle[edit]

The authors dedicated a significant portion to rel estate cycles in Saudi Arabia with a focus on historic, economic and psychological factors. At the same time they highlighted the key factor impacting the market as follows:

Oil price fluctuations can make the Saudi property cycle more exaggerated as oil price despite general overall stability over the past few years, can suddenly breakout of its typical range as was seen recently. The current weakness in oil prices which appear to have lasted beyond what was expected, is having an impact on government spending and will in turn impact the real estate market.

However it should be noted that the author denied that this is the case.[2]
