Investors Have a Positive Outlook for Dubai Property in 2015 Despite Fall in Property Prices Last Year.

Share Article

The latest Dubai Property survey by Openshore Property shows that despite falls in Dubai property prices last year, the vast majority of investors think prices will rise this year. With a good long term growth forecast by most analysts, this dip in prices may be short-lived and gives some investors an opportunity to purchase at a lower price.

Dubai Property Prices to Rise

Dubai's economy is booming, tourism is increasing and population is growing. So, we also expect property prices to continue to grow.

Openshore Property conducts regular surveys on investors who are looking to buy or have purchased property in Dubai. A recent survey conducted in early January 2015 shows that despite falls in Dubai property prices in 2014, the majority of investors think that prices will rise in 2015.

Dubai remains the most favoured place in the Middle East for investment property purchases by buyers from all over the world due to its desired location, high rental yields, and tax free status. In the Openshore Survey, 53% of investors surveyed think that prices will rise whilst only 17% think that prices will fall in the next 12 months. 30% think there may be no significant change or are not sure how prices may change.

Craig Hamill, senior Consultant at Openshore Property, explained “Prices grew too fast in 2013 and the fall in 2014 was a correction relating to this. It is interesting to see that most investors like us think that the fall is likely to be short-lived as Dubai's economy is booming, tourism is increasing and population is growing. So, we also expect property prices to continue to grow at a steady rate this year.”

He added, “Many investors, however, will be worried by the price fall and may wish to sell their properties at a low price to exit the investment. Others will see this as an opportunity to get a good deal. We expect transactions (which have fallen significantly in 2014) to increase again in 2015.”
