Dubai, one of the 7 cities that make up the United Arab Emirates, has emerged as a leading contender in the world of luxury real estate. According to experts, Dubai is swiftly catching up to New York and Los Angeles, as it becomes one of the busiest luxury real estate markets in the world after these two cities.
The city's rise in the luxury real estate market can be attributed to an influx of wealthy investors seeking a safe haven from global geopolitical and economic uncertainties. The surge in demand for property in Dubai has been substantial, with a remarkable 80% of Dubai's property transactions by value in 2022 being made in cash. This indicates the city's appeal as a prime location for real estate investment.
According to Experts, 219 properties that were valued at $10 million or larger were sold in the Middle East last year. When compared to London and Los Angeles, London made 223 transactions, Los Angeles made 225 transactions, and New York had 244 agreements that, came up to a total of $10 million or more. With 26 dealings, Dubai was the seventh most active city for sales of $25 million or more.
"Dubai has arrived" was quoted by one of the head researchers of the Middle East. "The increased concentration of the money in the city has been influenced by many factors, ranging from the government's decisive response to the pandemic to the introduction of new residency options for Visa."
Dubai's luxury real estate market has also become a popular choice for hedge fund traders, who are enticed by its tax-free status, simplicity of conducting business, and attraction as a center for international travel. The government's answer to the pandemic and its liberal visa restrictions have enhanced Dubai's allure as a hub for international travel and a center for conducting business.
The city's luxury real estate market encompasses some of the world's most highly sought-after neighborhoods, including Palm Jumeirah's beachfront homes. The city's outstanding relative value continues to drive ultra-high-net-worth individuals (UHNWI) buyers into the market.
Dubai is considered among the best and most affordable luxury house markets in the world, coming on the position of number 16 among the top 20 global prime residential markets. In the recent trends, $1 million will buy around 1,130 sq. ft., which is 104.98 sq. m. of residential space, which is four times as much space as you can allocate in New York, Singapore, and London; these are available in popular areas such as Palm Jumeirah, Jumeirah Bay Island, and Emirates Hills.
