Stability returns to Dubai's property market with 60% growth in June sales


Stability is returning to Dubai’s property market, with month-on-month sale transactions in June growing by more than 60 per cent as buyers took advantage of lower prices.

More than 570 sales transactions a week were recorded last month, with the number of weekly sales increasing by about 11 per cent on average in the past three weeks, the Property Finder portal said in its latest report on Wednesday.

More than 5,560 sales transactions worth Dh10.88 billion took place during the second quarter, which is half the number of transactions during the first quarter, bringing this year's total to 15,893 deals worth Dh32.49bn.

Last month's numbers have laid the foundation for a faster recovery as patterns of a V-shaped recovery emerge, the company said.

Dubai’s property market has softened due to concerns about a property glut and a drop in oil prices that began in 2014.

However, the market could bounce back next year on the back of increased economic activity related to Expo 2020 Dubai, Hussain Sajwani, chairman of the UAE’s third-largest listed developer Damac, said in May.

The secondary market, which only accounted for 28 per cent of total sales in April and 33.5 per cent in May, accounted for 53 per cent of all sales transactions last month, in line with the trend before the pandemic.
