As Dubai continues to recover with soaring property prices over the last two years, several stalled projects are back on track since then. Another cause for the spike in the real estate prices could be Dubai’s win of the expo 2020 bid.

Eng.Odah said “After Dubai’s win of the expo 2020 bid, the response has been very good, and customers take initiatives to do their bookings and pay money. Now is the best time for those who have invested during the crisis, and now they can benefit from the yield as the appreciation is more”.

Dubai has a mixed bag of investors from all over the world and is well-known for its multicultural background. Now the market has matured to help the end-user and the regulations are in place. RERA(Real Estate Regulatory Agency of Dubai) has addressed the key issues such as the credibility of the developer, flipping, and with the wake of registration fees from 2% to 4% this year; this sector is easier to operate especially to end-users.

Mr.Odah urged “About 108 nationalities have invested in our project. Now it’s a regulated business wherein you cannot start selling if you do not give a bank guarantee of 25% .It builds confidence and Benefits the consumer”

“After central bank had approved, we signed an agreement with Al Noor Bank and two more banks are there in the pipeline. The funding from the banks helps us a lot as they collect money from the consumers once we start delivering the units to them”.

He concluded “At the moment,we are focusing on delivering the units this year and the project is 70% complete”

Did you hear bubble!bubble! or Gone!Gone!

IMG_0713Is it  going to be smart, smarter, and  smartest for the property market of  Dubai despite the anxiety that create uproars of another bubble and so on? As opposed to the fears of the soaring prices which haven’t gone up yet to resemble the topmost figures of 2008  according to  property company,Jones Lang Lasalle albeit could stir mixed feelings in the market  or maybe a relief in the entire business is what one questions?

As we think about this further –Over the last nine months, there has been a dramatic increase of 22 % in the real estate sector of Dubai wherein the asking prices rose by 20% and 15% increase on villas year on year basis and apartments went up to 24% as per JLL report.  The rise in rental prices raised concerns as consumers need to be investigative on their spending and perhaps have a sensible approach to manage their expenses which hits on their disposable income. This further led to the new rental decrees for Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

There have been several arguments on the inflated prices of the realty sector in Dubai nevertheless the trend is likely to continue this year, however, will be less dramatic in 2014 as per the property company and Jones Lang Lasalle also stated the market is heading to a more sustainable mood where the regulations are in place right from speeding  up off-plan projects and stalled constructions in various locations are back on track.

With so much of Buzz  at the real estate front of Dubai after the doubling of property registration fees from 2 % to 4 % by the Dubai Land Department while, at the same time, DLD recorded DHS 236 billion worth of transactions last December. The primary reason for growth in this sector could be the massive development of the Aerotropolis community in Dubai Central or the expo site located  along this mixed-use development not only there are jobs created on this expo site, but also locations like Business Bay and Burj Khalifa have a huge influx of investors and buyers.

Across UAE there seems to be a boom time for the realty sector and Abudhabi is balancing its demand and supply as it constructs the city’s metro, and a number of other projects besides government’s decree to move many employees to the capital have pushed the housing prices in Abudhabi.

Major Developments or supply of residential houses are in Jumeirah Village, Business Bay and Dubailand. Most importantly the expo site in Dubai central will witness demand and supply of office, retail and residential units. And excessive availability of office spaces is one more issue which is being addressed; however, the constructions of houses are hitting a high after two years of stagnation.

With a flock of Buyers and many upcoming projects as well as government stepping in to check on its real estate prices while at the same time, 25000 residential units to be delivered this year-Dubai to have its smart move in place to avoid a bubble which is not possible to burst so where are you heading to Business Bay, Expo Site, Jumeirah Village, Jumeirah Lake Towers or the Al Shams Abu Dhabi?
