Favorable market conditions, a strong UAE economy, and recent legislative reforms could sustain long-term growth for Dubai’s realty sector. A solid UAE economy, the city’s image as a secure location for investments, and recent legislative changes.
These reforms, give residents a compelling reason to invest in the nation and enable non-residents to make the UAE their second home.
