The market has also profited from the country’s coronavirus vaccination programme, which was very widespread and has kept cases relatively low.
Taimur Khan, Mena head of Research at CBRE, said, “In spite of a continued rise in the cost of financing and moreover tightening of payment plans, we have yet to see this transactional effect activity in Dubai’s residential market.”
“In fact, the total number of dealings in March reached 7,865, up from 5,598 a month earlier. As a result, this has been the most powerful first quarter on record for Dubai in terms of residential transactions.”
“While average prices and average rents continue to rise, we are seeing a moderation in both sales and rental growth rates in the villa part of the market.”
