Baka: Leading the way with high real estate prices

Property prices in Baka are amongst the most expensive in Jerusalem, and in Israel.

Baka has for many years lead the way in high real estate prices, as compared to the average in the city and country as a whole.

There is a good reason why Baka is so popular with Israelis and Olim combined.

The Baka neighborhood is very quiet but is close to commercial districts and within walking distance are pretty much all the shops you could possibly need.

Derech Bet Lehem and Emek Refaim’s close proximity mean that a resident of Baka is near to all possible amenities.

One of the most desirable places to live in Jerusalem

Ultimately though, it is the neighborhood itself that has pushed real estate prices up. It is not hard to fall in love with many of the properties in Baka, with so many of them holding architectural value and many of which are designated for preservation.

Baka has also emerged as a clean area, with a good feeling of community and plenty of kindergartens to ensure it ticks a lot of boxes for old and young alike.

So we can safely say that over the last two decades, Baka has emerged as one of the most desirable places to live in Israel and Jerusalem.

This has seen plenty of improvement in the real estate prices of property in Baka.

With so many Jews, many of whom are religious, keen on living in Baka, we do not expect this to change any time soon.
