This has created a surplus condition in estate market by supplying huge number of properties for sale in the market.

    Dubai’s property market matured to become more segmented, comparable to established cities like New York, London or Paris. Fluctuations in Dubai’s real-estate values began to depend on ‘real demand’ dictated by the quality and desirability of certain properties within different districts.

    As a result, Dubai’s property prices haven’t moved in a uniform direction for three years. Meanwhile, the latest data from REIDIN, a world leading real estate information company, has found that prices have now risen across the board. More importantly, this price increase has been recorded in Dubai’s quietest month, which usually sees price declines due to minimal levels of tourism and Ramadan which dominates the entire month.

    This is a significant point in Dubai’s road to recovery. The Emirate’s economy is already expected to grow at a much faster rate than the major European nations or the USA this year according to the IMF, but with the added boost now predicted from a growing property market, Dubai is very well placed.
