One of the world’s strongest real estate economies

Dubai real estate has been a portfolio staple for many investors since the commencement of the foreign property ownership decree in 2002.

Existing investors have observed and profited from extended periods of double-digit capital growth since then and have more recently benefitted from the development of a healthy and sustained rental market.

The emirate now has one of the world’s strongest post-pandemic economies and continues to offer investors the very real chance of some of the largest real estate profits of any prime real estate market across the world.

Furthermore, unlike a few times in the past, the Dubai property market is now regarded as more mature and transparent, with investor confidence in both the resales and off-plan sectors supported by strong demand and strict regulation.

Dubai property investment performance

2022 was a record-breaking year for Dubai real estate, with investor demand resulting in massive amounts of real estate transactions.

When compared to the previous year, about 65% more property was sold in Dubai in 2022. This resulted in an all-time high of USD 72 billion in annual real estate transactions.

This statistic is even more astounding given that 2021 itself showed a comparable enormous jump in transaction volumes across an obviously covid-suppressed market.

Investors can expect a similar story of high returns in the coming years. Backed by an undersupply of property, high demand boosted by visa changes, and one of the world’s strongest economies, many investors believe now is the ideal time to invest in Dubai.

This is especially true given, many other global real estate markets are expected to stagnant in the short to mid-term due to worldwide interest rate hikes, and that prices in Dubai are still 20% lower than their 2014 peak.

Where to invest in Dubai real estate?

Given that Dubai is now home to 3.5 million residents, the property market is nuanced and mature. Location plays an important role in the success of any Dubai property investment.

Here, we’ll highlight some of the more popular submarkets, but please do speak to us about your investment needs. There are many distinct property markets in Dubai, each with its own unique investment proposition.

We can help you decide which location is best suited to your requirements and source property across all districts, including in more emergent locations.

Investing in Dubai property: What you need to know

Away from the location choice, there are still many factors investors need to consider before acquiring real estate in Dubai.

We’ve included some key information for you below, but please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you would like further information about any aspect of investing in Dubai property.

Tax benefits of Dubai property investment

Dubai remains notable for its very favourable taxation rules. This approach has helped investors maximise the return of any property investment they make in the emirate.

Of course, tax status, implications and advice are best discussed at an individual level, and that is something we can help all our investors navigate should they choose to acquire property with our aid.

Regulators in the Dubai real estate market

If you are buying from abroad or are new to the market, it is critical that you understand the process of buying property in Dubai and are aware of your rights.

The Dubai Land Department (DLD) is the authority that oversees sales transactions, and where the registration of property and land are recorded.

Investors can also find the latest market information on the DLD website too. Investors find this transparency vet helpful for ascertaining an official idea of valuations and current market trends.

The Real Estate Registration Agency (RERA) is the other major authority operating in the Dubai property market. This official body regulates the market and monitors the financial and technical details of all development projects, developers, brokers, and other licensed real estate professionals that operate in Dubai.

Dubai real estate investment and new residency rules

Many investors purchase Dubai property not only because of the world-leading returns but also for favourable new visa rules. The new Golden Visa allows investors to apply for a 10-year residency with the purchase of many different types of real estate in the emirate.

Apartments and villas

In Dubai, the market is defined by two major asset types: apartments and villas.

Apartments dominate much of the market and tend to be easier for investors to let. This is because they are very popular homes among the young ex-pat population in Dubai.

Villas have offered stronger capital growth in recent years. This is largely due to the demand generated over the covid period and the more restricted supply.
