Dubai’s Luxury Housing Market will Continue its Golden Run in 2022
According to Zoom Property Insights, the market is seeing a surge in Russian and Ukrainian buyers.
According to Zoom Property Insights, Dubai's luxury home market will remain in high demand in 2022. Transactions are up 30% year on year, with 4,083 transactions recorded in January alone. The average home price (per square foot) increased by 35.1 percent.
"The market as a whole will benefit from an influx of overseas investors, as there is an increase in demand from Ukrainian and Russian buyers as well," said Ata Shobeiry, CEO of Zoom Property.
Additionally, visa reforms, expat-friendly policies, and high profit-earning potential continue to attract investors from around the world, making Dubai a lucrative market for real estate investment, Shobeiry said. "The luxury property market will continue to rise in 2022, with more upscale buildings and projects on the horizon." As a result, wealthy foreign investors will become more interested in the sector.
