Inspired by an idea
The idea of providing exceptional quality through prompt client service led to a group of friends coming together with the idea of creating a company.

why invest in the UAE market now?
The Dubai real estate market has seen a positive turn, especially in the first half of 2021, which saw the highest real estate sales transactions in seven years. Many residents upgraded or chose larger homes such as villas or townhouses with gardens and outdoor spaces. There was also increased demand for waterfront properties. Going into 2022, we can expect to see the increase in demand for villas and townhouses, continuing to drive prices higher in this sector while low interest rates and competitive mortgage products will also have a positive effect for buyers in the market, especially end-users looking to live in the property. Although off-plan sales have actually hit the highest value of sales transactions since 2013, Dubai property is expected to remain modestly priced. With volume of sales transactions between secondary and off-plan almost at par, investors are optimistic about Dubai’s future being resilient, and will continue to attract more foreign direct investment from all over the world.
There is also better recovery and growth for the commercial real estate sector, as the demand for warehouses has increased as businesses shift their working models to hybrid or online. Digital evolution and online shopping have increased data consumption, hence increasing demand for data centres. In addition, there is a boom in demand across Dubai’s industrial landscape particularly in e-commerce businesses dealing in food products, furniture, pharmaceutical and storage providers. Recreational activities like gyms, sports and indoor playgrounds for children have also increased demand for warehouses.
Some factors, which helped the property market grow were the new government incentives such as special investor and retirement visas, golden long-term visas, as well as reduction of the loan-to-value for first time homebuyers, giving a significant boost to the industry. Low interest rates, competitive mortgage products and attractive housing prices by different developers also supported the market. Additionally, the UAE has proved to be a global model for crisis preparedness and in handling the pandemic.
Ease of doing business and open economic policies, world class infrastructure and amenities, tax efficiency , easy connectivity to and from any region in the world, are some of the key factors which has made corporates and individuals move their business here.
