When you compare the number of villas completed between 2017 vs 2018, one can see the eye-popping percentage increase in Dubai's supply of brand new villas for both, buying and investing. This trend continues on to 2019 as well.
A report by Core Consulting found that 21,700 residential units were delivered in 2018, the highest number of deliveries since 2011. Approximately 83 per cent of them were apartments, while 17 per cent were villas.
Next year, for 2019, Core estimates over 28,500 units (against an announced number of 56,000 units) will be handed over by the end of the year. Around 81 per cent are expected to be apartments, while 19 per cent are villas.
The majority of the deliveries are forecast to be in the affordable to mid-market segment in the outer areas with Dubailand and Jumeirah Village Circle and Triangle accounting again for one-third of all handovers.
