How much will it cost me to get a Riad renovated to my specs in Marrakech? Can someone provide me with Key In Hand Project Management Marrakech?

Size matters. As a general rule, the bigger the building footprint the more it costs per square metre, simply because land is at a premium in the better quarters of Marrakech Medina. To this end, some developers have been knocking two or three plots together in order to get to a critical size – basically, a family used to European space will require a minimum of 150 square metres on the ground. This will offer over 400 square metres of living space if you count the roof terrace – one of the joys of Marrakech.

A Riad boutique hotel will probably require a minimum of 250 square metres on the ground in order to respect the five suites minimum required by law.

So for only £200,000 you can get your foot on the property ladder in Marrakech. As a private owner you have options – your second home, buy-to-let, re-sale … in any case it’s a great investment opportunity.

Buying with a view to developping a boutique Medina hotel will cost more. Yet with just £200,000 you can own property which will fit the bill. Renovation costs can be as low as £300 per square built metre, meaning that for about £300,000 you could have a prime business up and running in one of the worlds tourist hot-spots.

Institutional investors will be looking at the bigger picture – there’s a real niche here for retirement home development, for example.
