Dubai real estate is poised for a robust first quarter as February 2023 proved to be a record-breaking month with 8,515 transactions in total, marking it as the highest February in the history of Dubai real estate.

According to Zoom Property Insights, the off-plan market is driving Dubai real estate as it recorded a little over 78 percent increase in sales. In comparison, the secondary market jumped by 18.8 percent. The Insights data also disclosed that a total of 17,741 transactions had been recorded so far in 2023. In terms of price, the market witnessed a 10.5 percent and 11.5 percent increase in January and February, respectively.

Ata Shobeiry, CEO of Zoom Property

Ata Shobeiry, CEO of Zoom Property, credited the rising demand and increased interest from HNWIs as the major reasons for the high performance of Dubai real estate.

He said, “Despite facing global challenges in the form of inflation, the Dubai property market continues its upward trend, attracting foreign investors and HNWIs. Going by the recent trends, both the prices and demand are expected to increase as the year progresses.”

“With several new developments launched in recent times, the Dubai property market continues to grab the attention of HNWIs and foreign investors and pose tough competition for other advanced metropolises. I am hopeful that this upward trend will continue throughout the year, making it another record-break year for Dubai real estate.”

A further breakdown from Zoom Property Insights reveals that the average price per square foot for apartments has reached AED 1,211, while for villas, it is recorded at AED 1,432.
