A new Core Savills report indicates long-term investments in prime parts of Dubai, according to Arabian Business.
Core Savills CEO David Godchaux said: “Despite the popular global assumption that the majority of Dubai’s real estate stock and transaction volumes are concentrated in the prime and luxury end of the market, this sector represents just a small portion.
“In fact, only 3 percent of residential transactions in 2017 were concluded within this segment.”
By comparison, prime properties in Dubai are nearly 40% lower than in Singapore. Likewise, it is 50% less than in Moscow or Paris.
“The long-term investment potential in Dubai’s prime segment is reinforced by a nominal tax regime is reinforced by a nominal tax regime and notably low real estate investment costs,” Godchaux added. “These costs, associated with buying, holding and selling property, can detract significantly from an investment and essentially erode the attractiveness of an asset.”
