Posted by main.admin on July 11, 2024

DAMAC Hills 2 Leads the Surge

Dubai property prices surged by up to 41 percent during the first half of 2024, according to a new report by leading real estate portal Bayut. This significant increase was particularly prominent in the villa market segment. DAMAC Hills 2, a favored area among investors seeking affordable properties, saw the highest price increase at over 41 percent, driven by strong local and foreign demand for affordable homes in the emirate.

Dubai Real Estate Market Overview

Despite ongoing price increases, Dubai remains highly affordable compared to other luxury real estate destinations worldwide. The first half of 2024 witnessed more than 43,000 property sale transactions in Dubai, amounting to nearly AED123 billion. This robust activity reflects strong market sentiment and growing investor confidence in the emirate’s real estate sector.

Affordable Segment Trends

The affordable property market experienced dramatic price increases due to significant investor interest in villa communities. While DAMAC Hills 2 recorded the highest price jump, The Valley by Emaar also saw a 17 percent increase in villa prices. Conversely, apartment prices in the affordable segment showed a different trend, with transactional sales prices decreasing by up to 18 percent in some highly sought-after areas.

Mid-Tier Market Growth

The mid-tier segment demonstrated consistent growth across both apartments and villas. Average sales transaction prices for apartments increased between 12 percent and 40 percent, with Jumeirah Lake Towers experiencing the most substantial growth. Villa prices in this segment rose between 4 percent and 23 percent.

Luxury Market Continues Upward Trend

The luxury market segment maintained its upward trajectory, with most areas recording increases in transactional prices ranging from 5 percent to 24 percent. This growth reaffirms Dubai’s appeal to high-net-worth investors and luxury property seekers.

Investor Sentiment and Market Outlook

“Amidst the global economic slowdown and rising interest rates, we have noticed a pattern of investors worldwide turning to wealth-preserving assets,” said Haider Ali Khan, CEO of Bayut and Head of Dubizzle Group MENA. “Dubai’s real estate sector has emerged as a standout choice in today’s economic climate, with prices and consumer interest continuing to rise even after a 24-month period of continuous growth.”

Attractive Returns on Investment

Despite the price increases, Dubai continues to offer attractive returns on investment (ROI). Affordable apartments in areas such as Dubai Investments Park, Discovery Gardens, and Remraam offer projected rental yields of up to 11 percent. In the mid-tier and luxury segments, several areas promise returns exceeding 9 percent, outpacing many global markets. For villa investments, areas like International City offer average ROIs exceeding 7 percent, while luxury communities such as The Sustainable City boast ROIs of over 7 percent due to unique property features and limited market supply.

Factors Driving Market Dynamics

Several factors contribute to the rising property prices and market dynamics in Dubai. The emirate’s strategic location, coupled with its world-class infrastructure and investor-friendly policies, has made it an attractive destination for both local and international investors. Additionally, the continuous development of new residential projects and luxury amenities enhances the appeal of Dubai’s real estate market.
