The Best Dubai Property Prices, 2021
Like the rent rates, the price of a property is also determined by various factors like the type of residence (apartment, villa, townhouse, penthouse, etc.) and the area in which it is located.

Dubai real estate prices are showing a steady increase with property prices expected to rise over the next couple of years. Even with the arrival of Expo 2020, house prices in Dubai are expected to remain affordable. The economy has bounced back quickly from the pandemic in the emirate after a successful vaccine rollout and has resulted in a continued increase in sales, according to the Dubai Land Department.

You can then multiply this amount by the number of your home’s square feet to determine your estimated home market value.

Alternatively, you can also find out the value of your home by:

  • Using online valuation tools: Just Goggling something like “how much is my home worth?” will display dozens of home value estimators. These tools are excellent resources that can help you determine your home value by using information from public records like deeds of ownership, property transfer, and tax assessment.
  • You can also get a comparative market analysis: Find a real estate agent to get their evaluation of your home and market, in order to get an estimated value of your home. Although it may not be as detailed as a professional evaluation, it can still help you get a value for your listing purposes.
  • Get a Free Mortgage Advice
  • Hire the services of an experienced professional property appraiser: Property owners can hire a professional appraiser to figure out the value of their home. The appraiser will evaluate the characteristic of your house, the market where the property is located, and the listing, sales, price, depreciation, and other factors of similar properties in the market to arrive at an accurate home value.
  • Evaluating comparable properties: The recent sales values of comparable properties can also give a good idea of the value of your home. These properties are similar in size, upgrades, condition and location and can be found in multiple listing services. You can then adjust the price of your home based on the differences between your property and the comp. For example, if your property has an extra bedroom, you will need to add more cost to your home, depending on the market conditions.

Opinion of Experts About the Future of Real Estate in Dubai

According to the Knight Frank Prime Global Cities Index, the second quarter of 2020 saw property prices in Dubai fall by 2.3% during peak COVID-19 times. However, it is proof of the resilience of the UAE market that they were already up by 0.9% by the third quarter of 2020. Moreover, listings on Bayut and Dubizzle show that property prices show a decline of just 4% in the first half of 2020, despite the fact that the Expo 2020 was delayed.

In 2021, once the vaccines were rolled out, the property market in Dubai started to recover at a record pace. Now that the Expo 2020 is finally here, the property market is booming. If you can afford to buy a property at this time, you can expect the prices to rise even more in the coming months, which will give you highly lucrative returns on investment. For private investors who are looking for long-term investments and who have a stable and secure job, flipping properties at this point can also be quite beneficial.

7 Reasons Why Now is the Best Time to Buy Real Estate in Dubai

There are a lot of expats who rent apartments rather than buying residential units in Dubai. However, if you are staying in Dubai for a long time, buying a villa or apartment in the city can actually save you money in the long run. Here are some of the reasons why you should invest in Dubai:

1.      Buyer’s Market

Currently, Dubai is a buyer’s market. The value of property has declined since 2014, including a 10% decrease in apartment values and a 9% reduction in villa prices in 2018. With construction on the rise and more property coming into the market, it is expected that the Dubai real estate market will remain affordable for years to come.

2.      COVID-19 Recovery

With the successful vaccine rollout, Dubai is poised for recovery. Although the property sector was impacted by the pandemic, the UAE took swift measures against the virus. Dubai is now in the perfect position to receive a boost from visitors who have come for Expo 2020 and recapture lost income from tourism.

3.      Higher ROI

The average return on investment in Dubai’s real estate is around 7% to 10%, compared to property in London that has a yield of 3.7% to 4.5% and Hong Kong with a yield of just 2%.

4.      All-Time Low Financing Rate

Financing rates in Dubai are at a record-low 3.99% for the first years for buyers who are looking to invest in Dubai property. In fact, at DAMAC, you can find mortgage rates for as low as 1.99%.

5.      Visa Reforms

The new UAE visa policies are expected to result in increased demand for homes in Dubai, improving the value of real estate. In 2020, the UAE government approved a series of economic stimulants and encouraged long-term investment, including 55+ year–old expats to get a 5-year retirement visa if they have property worth AED 2 million or have AED 1 million in savings or an active income of over AED 20,000 per month. This allows talents like engineers and doctors to obtain long-term visas.

6.      Expo 2020

Expo 2020 has generated a huge demand for housing and has increased buyers’ confidence, resulting in price recovery. The prices of property have improved in the months leading to the Expo and are expected to continue to stabilise during the duration of the event.

7.      Unmatchable Lifestyle

Dubai has the most advanced infrastructure, along with global cuisine, thrilling entertainment options, unbelievable architecture, opportunities for high-end shopping, and a stable currency. All of these factors make this city a great place to live. Moreover, people who live on a budget can also enjoy living in this cosmopolitan city since Dubai offers housing and amenities at affordable prices as well.

8.      Well-regulated Real Estate

Dubai’s construction and real estate sectors are very well-regulated and ensure safe and secure property investments in the city for both buyers and developers. These include rental caps, escrow regulations, and a rental dispute settlement centre, all of which can increase buyer and seller confidence.

Tips for Choosing the Right Property for Investment in Dubai

Whether you are a local or an expat, before you jump the gun and buy a property in Dubai, there are some things that you need to consider:

Location

You may think you may have found the perfect property; however, location is just as important. It is essential that you buy real estate in a place that offers you high ROI. In addition, you should check out the neighbourhood to find out whether it has all the amenities you need and if you will be comfortable and happy there.

Size

If you are a single person, a studio or a 1-bedroom apartment may be enough for you. However, if you have a family, you will need to look into a bigger space, like 2- or 3-bedroom apartments or even a villa. At DAMAC, you can find affordable villas in some of the best communities in the city.

Timing

The best time to buy is when the rates are low. Currently, Dubai is offering extremely generous interest rates to buyers to help them regain confidence after the pandemic. In addition, developers are also coming in with a plethora of various types of housing units which makes the price even more competitive.

Finances

Increased regulation in the real estate market means that you will need to organize your finances ahead of time. Calculate your budget to find out how much you can afford so that you can move quickly when you find a property you like.

Authorised Agent

If you are new to the real estate market, it is important to hire a RERA-registered real estate broker to get advice from. If you are buying off-plan from a developer, make sure you have all the pertinent details before you buy the project. Having a lawyer can also make this process easier.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is the real estate property value in Dubai falling?

Dubai’s residential property is steadily rising in value and analysts estimate that prices will continue to rise reasonably in the next couple of years. However, properties will still remain affordable. The economy has recovered quickly from the global pandemic and the pricing of houses is expected to rise 3.5% this year and about 2.5% the next year as compared to the 1.1% and 2.8% respectively that was expected during the second quarter of 2021. Trade liberalization, immigration policy reforms and the Dubai Expo all set the stage to attract foreign direct investment and give the real estate sector a boost.

Is it a good idea for an expat to buy property in Dubai?

Yes, it is an excellent idea to invest in Dubai. Even though Dubai real estate is on the rise, the value of its property is still low compared to some of the other major cosmopolitan cities of the world. This is largely because there is a huge supply of homes for people to live in. In addition, the city also offers a better rental yield (typically between 5% and 9%) than other mature real estate markets. All of this makes Dubai an affordable place to live in and a lucrative place to invest in.

What is the best time to buy property in Dubai?

The best thing about Dubai is that it is one of the very few real estate markets in the world that offers profitable deals to buyers all year around. Even though Expo 2020 and the vaccine rollout has resulted in a bullish trend in the real estate market and increased the value of properties, developers are being reasonable and still selling houses at an affordable price. Compared to London, New York, Hong Kong, etc., the property prices in Dubai remain relatively low, making it an excellent buyer market.
