How Ramadan helps in building a strong bond in a community

Not only is this Holy month of Ramadan considered as the month of helping the poor but also to revive friendships, build community bonds and receive gifts and wishes from your loved ones.

On that beautiful note, a few days before, I was invited to my friend’s house for an iftar get-together and after meeting her and partaking in their tradition, I realised the significance of Ramadan and how this holy month transforms individuals and its community into a sacred one…

The overwhelming response is a testament to the developer’s commitment to provide solutions that cater to the needs of end-users and investors who are looking for value for money properties in the emirate.

Abdulla Abushabieb, Executive Director Sales and Customer Care at Dubai Properties, said: “After we launched the Mudon development, the first phase of the residential units were immediately sold. At the recent International Property Show, buyers also evinced strong interest in the remaining 120 townhouses released in summer of 2014. We attribute this sellout response to the community’s value for money proposition as compared to other offerings within the same segment.”

With prices starting from AED 2.5 million, the gated Mudon community is surrounded by beautifully landscaped neighborhood parks with easy access to various modern amenities. Since its launch last year, Mudon has become one of Dubai Properties’ most sought after projects and Dubai’s most popular residential communities.

In developing Mudon, Dubai Properties made sure that the upscale community will allow residents to lead a tranquil yet active and vibrant lifestyle. The company also tied up with GEMS Education to open a GEMS School inside the community by September 2016.

The community also offers amenities that will include cycle routes, jogging paths, play areas, a swimming pool, and a gym.  An attractive mix of retail outlets will also be available for the residents’ convenience.

Dubai Properties’ competitive edge is its unique residential and mixed-use developments in Dubai. Aside from Mudon, its portfolio of modern properties also includes the Jumeirah Beach Residence, The Villa, Layan in Dubailand, as well as The Executives Towers, Vision Tower and Bay Square in Business Bay.

TASWEEK to explore European investments & partnership opportunities for international projects at MIPIM expo in France

Possible oil price fluctuations to impact global real estate activities and investors behaviors

By Anitha Lakshminarayanan

UAE, March 09, 2015 – TASWEEK Real Estate Development and Marketing, an advisor and solutions provider serving the property markets, foresees possible shifts in regional and global real estate activities and investors reactions amidst the ongoing changes in oil prices. With barrel rates in the past six months at their lowest since the 2008 financial crisis, TASWEEK says that prime markets should prepare to adjust to the effects on property prices especially in the housing and commercial segments after observing changes in the investor’s options and markets.

Masood Al Awar - CEO - Tasweek

Masood Al Awar, CEO of TASWEEK, will share valuable insights on the Middle Eastern and European property markets and the strong potential for investments between the UAE and Europe in particular during the 2015 MIPIM real estate exhibition, conference and networking event running from March 10 to 13, 2015 at the Palais des Festivals in Cannes, France. He will refer to a recent survey indicating that UAE investors are one of the largest foreign groups buying low-cost investment property in the UK, accounting for a large 18 per cent. This reflects the growing interest in UAE-European real estate investment partnerships.

The TASWEEK head will discuss the property boom currently being experienced by non-oil producing countries and how Middle Eastern countries could avoid facing a market slowdown. Developers would benefit from expanding their market options and client bases as a cautionary measure. Al Awar will also present and offer prime projects in UAE, Malaysia, and Morocco forming part of TASWEEK’s diverse USD 250 million international portfolio to interested MIPIM participants from senior international investors.

Al Awar said: “While price drops in oil and variations in currency rates are triggering a real estate frenzy in many parts of the world, key markets could face a reverse slump in business. The best strategy is to anticipate unfavorable market changes and broaden horizons especially towards high-potential regions and plan to adopt new smart products and services that can match and sustain market’s growth.

MIPIM is an ideal platform to gauge the current industry landscape and forge dynamic and mutually beneficial partnerships and deals that are in sync with today’s market conditions. For our part, TASWEEK is well-positioned to tap its smart and innovative solutions to support numerous aspects of the real estate industry’s operations and functions. The sustained interest in our Malaysian and Moroccan projects reflects that there are still lots of opportunities out there for forward-thinking developers in the UAE and across the region to pursue.

Aldar’s recent master plan developments in Al Raha Beach and Yas Island high sales volume pushes up demand in Abu Dhabi realty market

By Anitha Lakshminarayanan

Aldar sold out all of its supply of 223 units for Al Hadeel Project in Al Raha Beach in May and Ansam Development in Yas Island sold off units at prices ranging from Dhs 1,540 to Dhs 1550 per square foot.
“In terms of launches, we launched two our very well-appointed residential projects Al Raha Beach and Yas Island all of them are sold out, These are our master plan developments wherein we have enabled infrastructure and have DE risked these developments very well.”says Mr. Gurjit Singh, Chief Development officer, Aldar Properties in an Interview

Mr. Gurjit Singh, Chief Development Officer, Aldar properties

The Abu Dhabi market continues to rise in this quarter and Aldar was established to support Abu Dhabi’s development through the creation of high quality, attractive and sustainable communities equipped with residential, commercial, retail, leisure, hospitality, education and medical facilities. Today Aldar Properties owns a sizeable land bank in strategic locations throughout Abu Dhabi.

The Abu Dhabi’s supply pipeline increased to 1750 units in Reem Island, Danet Abu Dhabi and Al Reef in Q2 this has pushed the total stock to around 24000 units as per JLL.
Mr. Gurjit Singh also gave insights on the current property market and how Aldar helps in absorbing the supply

 

Mr.Gurjit Singh,Chief Development Officer,Aldar Properties talks to our reporter Anitha Lakshminarayanan in an Interview

“And in terms of how Aldar sees it, the stocks that we have had on our books for recurring income for rent, a lot of it has been absorbed and some of the developments are 100% fully occupied those which we have retained for rentals they have actually crossed up to almost full occupancy and this bodes extremely for us because we are in the business of producing recurring income for our business.”

“As a leading developer in the UAE, we at Aldar have been able to help towards absorbing the physical supply of the real estate market via our renters and gave them an option of upgrading themselves as property owners. The interesting trend now is a lot of upgrades are happening in the market”.

“People buying our developments come from a healthy cross-section. 55% of our buyers are end-user occupier types. 45% of them come from across the gulf, but they are not a high percentage compared to those who are already residing here. That is a healthy thing about Abu Dhabi and Aldar have been able to take advantage of those who are renters now, then wanting to become a purchaser. We also launched off-plan sales this year, wherein renters can upgrade themselves by buying a property that will be ready in a couple of years.”

“Besides, we were clear about our off-plan sales, which can attract mortgage only after they pay 50% equity. Nevertheless, we still got a healthy demand because of our smart yields. One more interesting rule which we have implemented is that you can’t sell your property unless you pay 50% of the total value. When people hear this and put their money in are seemingly considered in our eyes as long-term players. Indeed the mortgage rules have helped to ask into the details of our purchasers that also help the market to refocus and read speculators out”.

He concluded “We launched three projects this year at cityscape, two of which were residential are physically sold out and we will launch one more in the coming months”.
