Report shows interesting Dubai Real Estate Properties price trend

Dubai real estate prices are experiencing some changes. Prices in older districts located in Dubai have are changing and adjusting, with Deirah and Bur Dubai topping the list. Meanwhile, properties in Dubai Marina are changing as well. Studio and three-bedroom apartments that are on sale saw a decrease of 18% and 14% respectively. Renting rates for studios stayed the same, while three-bedroom renting rates are decreasing by 7%.

This report from Dubizzle also says apartments in Dubai Marina is the most popular real estate in Dubai for 2 consecutive quarters, with a staggering 4.9 million searches for one-bedroom apartments between April and June this year. Sales prices here have been decreasing, with an 18% and 14% change in studio and three-bedroom apartments respectively. Dubai Marina’s popularity remained at the top spot for two consecutive quarters in a row, with an impressive location being the most searched during this year’s Q2 with over 20 million searches.

Property price tags for Dubai real estate’s prime location Palm Jumeirah, saw a change in sale prices as well.  Prices for studio and two-bedroom apartments are increasing from 1.45 Million to 1.54 Million and 3.2 Million to 3.5 Million respectively.

The other side of the city also had price changes. Real estate in Dubai’s Deira showed price increases due to a lack of new properties along a sustained demand by occupants. This is why even if prices in these so-called older areas are relatively more affordable than new property developments, there is still a price shift that makes it better aligned with property prices across Dubai. Rental prices for studio apartments in Deira climbed by 18%, while those in Bur Dubai went up from 60K to 65K. Three-bedroom unit prices in the same location also increased from 150K to 158K.

Asked to comment on the report, Dubizzle’s Product Marketing Manager for properties Ms. Ann Boothello said: “The Dubai property market is softening as per the price changes experienced in Q2 this year. Some areas have experienced while older areas in Dubai showed price increases in reflection to a maintained level of demand for these older units and the alignment of their prices with those in newer areas in Dubai. An example of this is that now a studio in Bur Dubai is rented out for AED 65,000 annually and in Dubai Marina at AED 70,000.”

She continued to say that “prices of properties for sale decreased across Dubai, with the exception of studios and 2 BR apartments on the Palm Jumeirah increasing up to 6%. Abu Dhabi on the other hand, experienced price increases in for sale and rent properties; however Al Reem Island saw a drop in prices for 1, 2, and 3 bedroom apartments.”
