Property Headlines This Week

  • Demand and Supply Both Healthy for Dubai Real Estate – The UAE Real Estate Report recently published by Asteco shows Dubai’s market strength as it continues to rise despite the mounting pressures of inflation, supply issues and global political influences. The report revealed an upward trend in both supply and demand in the emirate, with the first half of 2022 recording a host of successful and highly anticipated project launches, supported by an equally strong secondary market. The new launches have come at an opportune time of growing investor confidence in the Dubai property market. Despite warnings of rising construction overheads and supply chain delays running a heightened risk for developers, investors should remain largely safe as most Dubai projects have construction milestone-related payment structures. This setup works to incentivise developers to complete their projects either on or ahead of schedule.


  • Dubai’s New Legislation to Boost Overseas Investor Interest – In an effort to grow real estate investment, Dubai’s ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al-Maktoum brought a new law into force on July 19 that will grant special privileges to property investment funds. This type of fund works by investing in securities offered by public real estate companies. In comparison, a real estate investment trust is traded in the same way stock is traded and invests directly in revenue-producing real estate. The new law will cover all government-licensed and regulated real estate investment funds, as well as those covered by free zones and private development zones. The law is intended to help encourage real estate funds and property investors to enter the Dubai market, with property investors also enjoying privileges associated with the new legislation. It should also work to increase transparency within the industry.


  • Scramble for Quality Office Spaces Boosts Prices by 10% – Savills Dubai Office H1 2022 report has revealed that the value of commercial rental units has risen by 10% during the first half of this year, bringing it to a 13% price increase year-on-year. This uptick has come amid a rush for premium office spaces set inside grade A developments. According to the report, a range of commercial markets are now experiencing rising rents, such as social, environmental and governance-compliant spaces. The data also revealed a new drive for more flexible office and working spaces, with co-working areas and serviced offices being particularly popular. This has emerged as more companies search for ways to reduce their expenses and new businesses test their operation needs and capabilities within the city.
