Saudi Arabian government launched the major plan of a new real estate project in the eastern part of Riyadh.

Sales will start on the project villas directly after Eid with prices starting from $170,000 per each.

The villas feature various interior and exterior designs to fit different financial capabilities and preferences of the clients.

The new project is backed by Real Estate Development Fund, it offers villas buyers real estate finance deals of up to SAR500,000.

REDF was established by the Saudi government in 1974 to raise the quality of living in the kingdom and increase house ownership especially between less financially capable tiers.
