This Year, Vacation Rentals In Abu Dhabi And Sharjah Are Also Aiming To Make A Statement.
As anticipated, vacation house rentals in Dubai are projected to reach record heights for the New Year. For stays between December 30 and January 2, some villas on the Palm Jumeirah fetch over Dh60000 (4-bedroom villa on the frond). As owners of properties wait for some last-minute reservations, they may raise rates even further. Additionally, this year’s New Year’s celebration will feature holiday houses from Sharjah and Abu Dhabi. Thanks to new legislation allowing landlords to provide short-stay choices.
The New York season always has the highest prices in Dubai, according to Anna Skigin, founder of the Airbnb management business Frank Porter. “It will be felt more so this year. The greatest rates are anticipated in January.
Doha World Cup Prepares Everything Well
For real estate investors in the vacation rental/short-term lodging sector, demand in the final week of 2022. Moreover, the first few days of 2023 represents an extension of an exceptionally long period of continuous demand. It began on or around November 18, when World Cup soccer fans arrived for stays in the UAE. In between journeys to Doha for the matches. (Top-of-the-line the last days of the Doha event, December 16–19, saw an average price for renting a palm villa of Dh20520.) The huge New Year period is now upon us, and increases in vacation home rents have increased by a further doubling. If not more. Everything is working out as the landlords had hoped.
Successful For Landlords
According to a real estate agent, “Their choice to maintain their houses in short-term rental market has paid off handsomely.” Many of them would have produced returns at this point that were more than what they would have received. For the identical property if it had been listed for a one-year rental. This is despite fact that Dubai saw 20–30% rent rises for one-year leases. The year for landlords was 2022.
Opportunities Arise For Sharjah And Abu Dhabi
Although market sources claim there was a lot of activity during the World Cup era. The notion of vacation homes is still in its infancy in Sharjah and Abu Dhabi. Both emirates now have well-defined laws for how landlords and property owners should conduct themselves. In the short-term rental market and how to protect renters’ rights.
According to Anna, prices in Abu Dhabi are typically 40% less expensive than those in Dubai. Sharjah rates are now 50% cheaper than Dubai rates on average. But it is important to remember that both markets are still developing, thus rate gap between them will eventually narrow.
An Increase in Short-Stay Capacity
Before enough short-stay capacity is available in these two emirates, it may take a year or two. More homes will need to be delivered. In order for their owners to convert them to the short-stay market in order for that to happen. Additionally, it will be necessary for supporting variables to be in places, such as mega-events or a program of events. That can meet the ongoing demand for short lets.
Here, Abu Dhabi’s continued efforts to create a jam-packed event and conference schedule will be quite beneficial. However, it will be up to the landlord to decide between a one-year lease and a short-term lease.
Dubai’s short-stay industry has developed over the course of four to five years, and the pandemic caused a disruption in 2020 as well. The holiday home market in Dubai has more than made up for 2020, which is why 2022 has been such a breakthrough year, according to a landlord with five Airbnb homes, all of which are fully booked until January 15 of the following year. It appears that 2023 could be as resilient.
