From CEO's Desk: When is it the right time to invest in Dubai

Where are the sale and rent prices going?

In my opinion, rents will come down more and that will affect the sale prices in the short term. In the long term, once the sale prices come down to a certain level, people will choose to buy rather to rent since monthly mortgage installments will become less than the monthly rent. This will push the sale prices up.

Cheaper rents are good for the overall economy

Majority of Dubai's residents' expenses are paid towards rent. Once it becomes less costly to rent, residents would spend more boosting the economy. Additionally, cheaper rents for businesses means more cash on their books that will lead to their growth and salary hikes for the employees. As the rents come down, the overall living expenses will come down and more people will consider moving to Dubai. Yes cheap rents are very good for Dubai.

When is the right time to invest in Dubai

The right time to invest in Dubai is now. The sale prices have shrunk as supply currently exceeds demand. Investors and residents must realize the current prices will not be available forever. Real estate prices behave in a cycle and this cycle is proven to repeat itself historically. Just have a look at the cycles between 2002-2009 and 2010-now.
