Furthermore, the off-plan market transacted 4,439 homes worth about Dh9.755 billion in September. Representing a gain of 80.23% in volume and 94.13% in value.

According to Scott Bond, Property Finder’s UAE country manager, the growth in demand throughout the off-plan and secondary market comes as no surprise, considering the UAE’s proactive tactics, enticing regulations, golden visa program, challenging investment landscape, and property-pricing environment. “Major trends and triggers, such as an inflow of high-net-worth individuals and millennials shifting from renting to buying their preferred residences, will reinforce Dubai’s property market’s prominence,” Bond added.

Record-Breaking Nine-Month Contracts

During the first nine months of 2022, the real estate market generated Dh125.2 billion in sales transactions. Eclipsing the entire sales value attained in 2013. (Dh119 billion). According to Property Finder, off-plan purchases achieved an all-time high in the last nine months. With 29,339 total sales transactions compared to 24,077 total transactions in 2021.

The real estate consultant Core also noted that the rising trend in sales prices persisted across districts. With citywide villas, sales prices are up 16% year on year, and apartment prices are up 8% year on year. However, it stated that the pace of price increases in the third quarter of 2022 has reduced. As compared to the first and second quarters of 2022 (4% quarter on quarter).

According to Prathyusha Gurrapu, Core’s head of Research and Advisory, the general market attitude remained favorable this year. “While the prime market is reasonably immune to market threats,” she explained. “The overall rise in acquisition prices is notably affecting the inexpensive and mid-market sectors. With certain end-users becoming priced out.”

According to Ata Shobeiry, Dubai’s real estate has maintained an upward trend this year due to high demand from investors. Who have responded positively to the government’s visa and business changes.

“Dubai real estate has exceeded the 2013 high level with 8,649 transactions totaling Dh24.42.” Despite global concerns, this paints a positive image of the property market,” Shobeiry added.

Due to the flood of HNWIs, the golden visa programme, and other investor-friendly regulations, the market “continued its golden run throughout the first three quarters, and I expect the fourth quarter will follow the same trend, closing the year on a very good note,” he said.
