    After 3 months of aggressive sell off and properties lost as much as half the values we are seeing relative stability. The corrections will not end up until the end of the year but pretty much we are talking +-10% from now on.

    Is there much activity taking place at all in Dubai right now ? What is the average selling price for developments in Dubai Marina, JLT, BD etc ?

    georgih, things are ANYTHING but stable right now. You can create a library of distress sale offers right now and these sales will get distresser AND distresser by the hour. The big 4 (Emaar, Nakheel, Tamweel, Amlaak) are just looking at each other right now wondering who will be the first one to fall.

    It's hard to see government backed developers fall. They may close the sales, and other departments but not the companies themselves. More massive lay-offs is more probable imho.

    From my experience of distress sales, once the owner finds a buyer, he increases the price by another 10-15% It's hard to find genuine distress sales.

    Georgihh may be a little right in the sense that there has been a steady decrease in sales, but rents are plunging massively.

    JBR is going down slowly because there are full building owners not releasing their availability at all.

    Then again, there's nothing that can back this but first hand experience since media aren't giving even close to fact figures.

    No one is denying that the market is getting bad, prices are dropping in those areas as we speak, Garden homes have gone as low as 6 million but that doesn't mean trade in ready property has stopped.

    here is still a market for ready properties, but to say that it's crashing is blowing things out of proportion. Just because prices aren't as high as they used to be doesn't mean that there isn't a profit to be made.

    How do you define a crash? A 40-60% decline in prices within 60 days isnt a crash?

    Can you please post the links

    YES ,please post the links , I would like to see these adds and numbers , for this indicates that even if we forfeit 40-50% of the value of unit , we will be still be better off than to continue. FEAR FACTOR IS THE WORD . I only wish that some people will see these numbers and start to inject some liquidity into the market , to revive it , other wise we are heading for a real catastrophe .
