Record Transaction Volumes

The second quarter of 2024 saw a record number of transactions, with a total of 35,310—a 20.5% increase year-on-year. This surge was driven by a 23.9% rise in off-plan property transactions and a 15.2% increase in secondary market transactions.

Commercial and Industrial Real Estate

Dubai’s commercial real estate market also performed exceptionally well, with average rents increasing by 22.2% annually and 17.1% quarterly. This rise was fueled by the expanding requirements of companies and businesses in the UAE’s thriving economy.

The industrial and logistics sector saw annual rental rates increase by 14.3% due to higher demand for warehouses and storage facilities.

Hospitality and Retail Real Estate

The UAE’s hospitality industry demonstrated resilience, with a 0.9 percentage point annual increase in average occupancy rates. Retail rental rates in Abu Dhabi and Dubai also saw significant increases, rising by 14.7% and 10.5% respectively, reflecting strong commercial activity and a supply-demand imbalance.
