Real property prices are lowering in Dubai

The prices of residential accommodations have dropped by 12% on average in Dubai over the last two years. The increase in the number of newly built residence complexes has been the main contributor to the drop in prices. It is expected that 640,000 new flats will be built in the Emirate by the end of 2020.  

The maximum decrease in prices is found in the sector of economy-class accommodations. Prices for luxury property have lowered only insignificantly. Today, the average cost of one square meter (10,8 sq. ft.) of residential accommodations is approximately US$ 3,400. It also should be noted that in other Emirates the prices of real property have dropped even more considerably.  

Alongside the decrease in prices, the number of apartment purchase deals also decreased by about 5% in 2019 in comparison to the previous year. This is mostly explained by the rise of interest to villas on the part of investors. Villa sales increased by about 30% last year as compared to 2018. The demand for real property in Dubai is expected to grow in 2020 especially with the view of the upcoming ‘EXPO 2020’ event.
