Why Dubai Property Market Is Booming

Jun 30, 2008
Dubai is currently one of the top of the list for fastest growing cities worldwide and has a real estate market others are highly envious of. As a result everyday new apartments, villas and luxury bungalows are entered onto the market. Dubai is a free tax haven, which has lead to many investors taking advantage of the huge capital gains to be made in property investments. An investor can expect to make around 30 percent returns on their investment. Dubai has a solid and stable real estate market.

The huge returns being made from Dubai property investments has pushed the prices up for locals and expatriates wishing to either buy commercial or private property worry about being able to afford to live in Dubai the mortgage repayments are often significantly higher than rental payments. Due to high demand and rapid growth particularly in apartment and seaside dwellings building costs have skyrocketed. Some market experts predict a slump or a correction to prices by a reverse trend sometime in the near future. To date however there appears to be no slowing down and demand way out exceeds supply. The fast profits being made have lead to a worldwide awareness and a rush to invest and as a result there have also been dubious realtors and scams being conducted.

If you are considering buying commercial properties in Dubai then it is prudent to do your research first. You cannot expect to just jump off a plane and find yourself a profitable short-term investment. Foreigners in particular need to be wary and get sound advice before even considering a purchase. As an investor you cannot apply other market results to expectations of returns. To avoid being scammed or sold over priced properties then you really need to spend some time having a trusted person look over any prospective deals and comparing them to others in different regions. Never buy a property unseen.

Dubai's government opened up shop for those of any nationality in may of 2002 this lead to an overnight boom in the real estate market there is however no guarantee that this will remain the status quo. Dubai investment bank, Emirates Financial Services (EFS) has launched a $20.4 million (Dh75 million) real estate fund that will invest in profitable short-term opportunities in the UAE's surging property sector. EFS, a unit of Emirates Bank International, said the UAE Real Estate Arbitrage and Trading Fund is managed by a unit of Investment Boutique, a partner of Better Homes, the largest estate agency in the UAE.

Dubai as mentioned earlier has a tax free law which means that no taxes are imposed on people who want to venture into Dubai real estate. There are currently many Dubai real estate and property projects which are coming up in various locations in the city like The Walk, Jumeriah beach residence, Business bay, The Executive Towers, The Villa, and Bay Avenue. Dubai sure is the ideal place to invest in real estate and you will find different types of apartments ranging from studio, to three bedroom apartments, villas and luxury homes being built and put up on sale.
