Dubai: Azizi Developments, one of the leading private developers in the UAE, has published results on current property trends, following a comprehensive study that it conducted across its markets and projects.

The study concluded that the biggest market for Azizi Developments is the UAE, with more than half (52%) of its customers being Emiratis — followed by Saudi nationals at 25%, Indian nationals at 10%, Pakistani nationals at 4%, and the rest being from the GCC, Europe and China. In 2019, there has been a noticeable increase in demand from Saudi and Chinese nationals, with their proportion of purchases relative to other nationalities increasing by 8 per cent and 5 per cent respectively.

The study explores factors that govern property buying, including location and unit price, and reveals that the majority (68.5%) of property intenders purchase units as an investment, to rent them out.

Findings also suggest that studio apartments are the property type that is most in demand, comprising 65 per cent of all sales, while one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments make up 25 per cent, 7 per cent, and 3 per cent respectively.
