Ultra-prime property in demand
Frond G, which has more signature villas than all of Palm Jumeirah combined, is popularly known as 'Billionaires Row'. It is home to the most expensive villa ever sold in Dubai by Alpago Properties.
Recent media reports said that the Indian industrialist Mukesh Ambani, one of the world’s richest people, bought a Palm Jumeirah villa for approximately $80 million (Dh293 million) for his son Anant.
Prathyusha Gurrapu, head of Research and Advisory at real estate consultancy Core, said the prime and ultra-prime residential market has been relatively resilient compared to the affordable and mid-market segment during 2014-2020.
"We have observed a marked increase in demand for prime residential properties since fourth quarter of 2020. In fact, 2021 saw the highest secondary market transactions above Dh10 million in the last decade, with Palm Jumeirah accounting for nearly 35 per cent of these transactions," Gurrapu told Khaleej Times recently.
Prime residential values in Dubai, which encompasses the neighbourhoods of the Palm Jumeirah, Emirates Hills and Jumeirah Bay Island have risen by 88.8 per cent in the last 12 months, according to global property consultant Knight Frank.
“Prime residential values in Dubai continue to strengthen, growing by 29 per cent in third quarter alone, fuelled by a persistent deluge of UHNWI individuals who are zeroing in on Dubai’s premier districts, in search of second homes,"Faisal Durrani, Partner – Head of Middle East Research, said.
Of Dubai’s three Prime residential districts, the Palm Jumeirah, with an average transacted price of Dh3,054psf, remains the most affordable, relative to Emirates Hills (Dh5,220psf) and Jumeirah Bay Island (Dh6,345psf).
Ata Shobeiry, CEO at Zoom Property, the luxury property market will continue its rebound in 2022.
“The luxury property market will retain its upwards trajectory in 2022 with more upscale buildings and projects on the rise. Consequently, wealthy foreign investors will show more interest in the sector," he said.
"The market, on the whole, will benefit from an influx of overseas investors as there’s an increase in demand from Ukrainian and Russian buyers, as well. Moreover, visa reforms, expatriate-friendly policies, and high profit earning potentials continue to attract investors from across the globe, making Dubai a lucrative market for real estate investment,” Shobeiry said.
