Introduction:

The approach of the Iraq housing association company proposes the construction of residential complex houses in the country. For this purpose we will assume Mr.Ali Balal as a foreign investor, who wants to enter the Iraqi housing market via direct investment.
The Iraqi government has developed some attractive benefits towards investment in Iraq and especially in the housing industry and those are:

* Land ownership * Tax exemption for 15 years * Low corporates tax free after 15 years of tax free as will become 15%. * None direct involvement to the end buyer. * Government will introduce a secondary financial arranger to help the investor towards collecting both capital and profit from the projects so they can prevent the investor to be a long term creditor.

The plan will be running in different geographical points of Iraq as we will also try to reduce the housing traffic in the large cities including the capital by different patterns as expanding the available complex houses and developing the available both infrastructure and required facilities as hospitals, shopping centres, parks, mosques, in and out rods to other cities, new bus routes, educational centres (new Scholes, colleges and universities) and other required facilities.
Providing high standards of new construction technology, and moving from horizontal constructional design (traditional housing design) as it occupies more space than the vertical constructional concepts, but we should bear in mind that the nation won’t like to live in a small flats and high buildings. Giving options to the buyer to choose their location, type of property, area and number of bedrooms as the property price will start from a basic price where the property will be handed to the buyer with its skeleton, where these prices can be raised by the available furniture and the quality and type of the…
