3 Hottest neighborhoods in Dubai in 2019

  • December 31, 2018

The softening of property prices in Dubai has raised much concern among real estate investors. Although 2018 saw fewer launches of fresh projects, the market was flooded with over supply of housing units. This in fact made houses more affordable for local residents to upgrade their apartments to independent housing such as villas and townhouses. In spite of the affordability, sales volume did not create a stir in the market.

However, there is some good news. According to average sale price data (Nov 2018) by Property Monitor, the following communities have maintained a stable pricing month on month while all other major localities are in the red. This certainly indicates a shift in the market where investors are looking for quick returns at the onset of Expo 2020 and buying properties closer to the venue.
