Luxury Real Estate Market UAE Kept its Momentum On January 12, Week’s Highest Sales Day

The real estate market in Dubai saw higher revenue of AED 1.45 billion on the fourth day of the second week of the new year. However, it’s less than the first week of January, as evident from the glimpse from the first week of January 2023.  

In Dubai’s real estate market, 431 properties increased in value, with 73 mortgage deals for AED 464.03 million and 20 gift deals worth AED 18.34 million. Moreover, Azizi Shaista Residence flats in Al Furjan are selling the fastest for a total of AED 904,000.

The top three sales on 12 January 2023, according to DLD mortgage transaction details, were as follows: an Arjan apartment with a per-square-meter value of 7,181 sold for AED 800,000 (total transaction 1), a Bluewaters apartment with a per-square-meter value of 14,236 sold for AED 2,121,456 (total transaction 1), and a Burj Khalifa apartment with a per-square-meter value of 25,673 sold for AED 2,695,000 (total transactions 2). 

Experts Predict that Real Estate Price Increases Will Subside in 2023

As Dubai reopened during the pandemic before other major cities, and as wealthy buyers snatched up luxury units, the real estate market there saw a boom in 2020 after having been stagnant since the oil price fall of 2014 and 2015.

After increasing by 11% in 2022, which was a drop from 2021’s 21% increase, this year’s price increases are predicted to be around 5%. After a record year in which the number of properties sold in Dubai increased by over 60%, experts predict that price increases will subside in 2023. 

Demand has not been hindered by interest rate hikes. However, the luxury properties for sale in UAE are undoubtedly influencing buyers’ propensity and ability to pay higher prices for properties.

According to a report, in 2022, non-resident Russians made up 15% of purchases, followed by Britons at 12%, Indians at 11%, Italians at 7%, and French at 4%. Sixth place went to buyers from Pakistan, seventh to Lebanon, eighth to China, ninth to the United States and Canada, and tenth to Kyrgyzstan. 

After the conflict in Ukraine, many Russians flocked to Dubai in search of economic opportunities. Many of them purchased luxury apartments in the Palm Jumeirah and Downtown neighborhoods. 

The majority of Dubai residents are Indian, followed by Britons, Russians, Italians, and Canadians as buyers. The majority of people living in the United Arab Emirates are not indigenous to the country.

In volume terms, apartment sales increased by 73% in 2022, while sales of villas, which sparked the rebound in 2020, increased by just 3%, as seen in the real estate activity report for the last week of 2022. This disparity can be attributed to a shortage of villas in the ready and off-plan markets. Lack of supply in this market as a result of population expansion led to the addition of 34,000 new real estate units in 2022 and an anticipated 30,000 to 35,000 new units in 2023.
