Industry insiders claim that due to its business-friendly rules, new incentives for investors, and improved quality of life, international investors are increasingly choosing Dubai as their primary residence in the post-pandemic period. According to the Dubai Statistics Centre, Dubai’s population just surpassed the 3.5 million thresholds and was 3,517,303 on July 18.

However, the rate of rental growth is accelerating, with rentals rising by 21.6% over that time. According to Khan, “average rents are rising at the quickest rate since mid-2014.”

According to Imran Farooq, CEO of Samana Developers, Dubai real estate has been prospering since Expo 2020. In addition, many other industries and companies have prospered because of the government’s excellent management of the event.

Additionally, the number of property management contracts increased by 13% between Q1 2022 and Q2 2022. With average rental rates rising throughout Dubai. This may be a sign that more investors are entering the market to profit from the high return on investment, according to Lewis Allsopp, CEO of Allsopp & Allsopp.

In terms of short-term rentals, Dubai Creek Harbour, Dubai Marina, and Jumeirah Village Circle ranked first through third in June.

Lewis remarked that it is wonderful to see new regions get into the top 3 for rental transaction totals. Residents of the city are growing more and more enamored with Dubai Creek Harbour. With its closeness to the areas and convenient transportation links, it is an excellent choice for individuals who work in Downtown Dubai, Business Bay, and DIFC, he continued.
