    Dear Dubai RENTAL investors,

    Please let me know what are your expectations and main fears when investing for mid to long term in Dubai, and more specifically, when investing in the commercial sector of Dubai [ie: TECOM].

    1- What are the rental yields you expect to achieve? [what rates would you buy at, and what rental rate would you expect to get]

    2- What capital appreciation would you hope/expect to get?

    3- What is the main fear/concern that may drag you away from investing in Dubai's commercial sector?

    Please let me know your thoughts/answers [even if you only have an answer to 1 of the above Qs, it'll help to know your views]

    Best regards,

    I am particularly concerned about Dubai's capacity to sustain the property market boom. Will the ever-growing supply not lead to a property glut in future, notwithstanding Dubai's potential to attract investers from all over the world and thereby boost employment opportunities, and by extrapolation stimulate population growth?

    Dear P A-N:

    First, welcome to the forum and hopefully you'll enjoy it!
    Your concerns are understandable, but there are several factors that are in Dubai's favor with regards to this phenomenon in Dubai!

    Factor 1: The supply of land is 100% controlled by the government, and the government only release new master development when they carefully assess the demand situation. So, in other words, the supply is controlled by the demand.

    Factor 2: In order to keep the demand growing, Dubai is always coming up with mind blowing projects which are designed to attract the tourists, sporting figures, etc....

    Factor 3: Business in Dubai! That's an incredibly master minded sector. Freezones benefits are just magnets for large corporations! The demand for commercial office spaces in Dubai is unrivaled anywhere else in the world, and the supply can't seem to keep up with the demand! Look at the appreciations and rental yields in DIFC, TECOM, Business Bay, etc....

    I hope the above helped. Any Q, please feel free to ask here or call me on 00447825107389.
