Real Estate Boom

According to a report in Arabic daily Al Bayan, Walid Al Zarouni, Chairman of W Capital Real Estate Brokerage, said that the boom in the real estate market and the strong support from all local and global economic factors contributed to recording historic real estate sales in terms of completed sales, or off-plan properties. The sales in 2025 are likely to range between $122.53 billion to $136.15 billion, he said.

Al-Zarouni also said that the UAE was experiencing a new urban shift due to strengthening infrastructure and urban expansion, to accommodate the future demand for housing in the next two decades.

“The UAE has been providing unprecedented facilities in terms of granting long-term residency, and facilitating foreigners’ ownership of projects, which were completely new, with ambitious plans to become the number one preferred destination for living and working in the world,” he said.

Al Zarouni further said that the off-plan real estate market in Dubai registered an impressive growth, indicating the highest annual performance ever for the year 2023, as well as the first quarter of the current year.

Off-plan sales in Dubai increased in 2023 to 68,783,000 transactions, from 43,151,000 deals in 2022, representing an increase of 59.4%, and recording the highest annual performance ever.

The activity in off-plan sales comes in light of the preference of a group of buyers for this type of real estate investments, which provides many advantages, including options for payment plans for the required financial payments and instalments, and long-term payment periods,” he added.
