“The current soft sales market has made the cost of property ownership more attractive versus the cost of rent, especially for those considering staying in Dubai for five years or more. Long-term expats are increasingly making the leap into ownership as declining prices are now making this investment possible. dubizzle Property has always been the go-to platform for investors in the UAE, as it provides them with the necessary tools to make well informed decisions,” commented Matthew Gregory, Head of Property Sales at dubizzle Property.

As the UAE transitions to a competitive knowledge economy by driving the growth of non-oil economic sectors such as real estate and infrastructure, dubizzle is facilitating business for property investors through its platform.

The strategic location and advanced infrastructure of the UAE provide fantastic investment opportunities for companies and individuals internationally, and especially from the Arab world.  In addition, the UAE government’s strategic decisions to grant investors a 10-year UAE residency visa and reducing government fees have acted as important incentives to encourage investment in the country.
