When we look at the volume of transactions, the off-plan market transacted 3,219 properties worth a total of AED 6.84 billion.

Commenting on the market, Lynnette Sacchetto, Director of Research and Data at Property Finder stated “The sales trends continue to thrive month-on-month and it’s interesting to note that November 2021 had the highest amount of sales transactions since Expo2020 was announced in December 2013. The question on everyone’s mind is are we starting to see the effects of Expo2020 in the real estate market and the trends are giving us the answers.”

“It is also interesting to note that 2021 to date had the highest off-plan value since 2009 which was the peak for off-plan sales in Dubai. The data clearly shows that investors and consumers are confident in Dubai’s future which is reinforced by proactive government initiatives, attractive real estate projects and the vision of the City.” Sacchetto added.
