    The flippers are gone 20%
    Half of the end user is gone - because of the visa issue 10% (from 20%)
    Half of the investors are gone – because of financial crisis 15% (from 30%).
    The developers will start if not already started flooding the market with unsold and cheap properties 30%.
    As you can see only 25% of the property buyers or keepers are in the market and even they are waiting for some bargains.
    As you can see unpredictable future is in front of us as the market can really collapse.

    So far the prices are as bad as end of 2007 , but today

    Studio 465000DHS
    One bedroom 675000DHS

    Studio 370000DHS
    One bedroom 550000DHS

    750 per sqft for completed apartments

    4E 1.7M
    3E 2.25M
    1E 2.95M

    I don’t want to discuss the off plan developments as they really have no buyers

    please....can you simply post the prices per sq.ft, according your offers and listings for the different areas in Dubai, in order to establish some sort of facts data.

    All your comments are highly appreciated, but the purpose of the post was to build a resource for comparison useful to all readers. By expressing opinions that are not relevant, you only divert attention.

    Thank you.

    The price per sqft is history now when you buy first you measure then you negotiate and then if they reduce the price by reasonable percentage you buy.
    Most of us have bought the so called sqft and we didn’t know if this is the real size the size with the common balcony or even the common areas.
    Whatever the developer was willing to handover we got and we couldn’t say much we accepted bad or good. This time is gone now we buy per rooms and we want to see how big the rooms are. 2009 will change the property market in Dubai – completely. The end user will benefit and will turn the things around.
    Now I can see how all of the sqft I have invested in are melting down.
    Dubai is a joke complete joke starting with the off plan per sq ft which never gets built or if built with hundreds of additional charges and abnormals and years of delays
    Anyway why in Dubai they use sq ft but not sq meters? – Maybe to show how big they are

    Please mention prices that you can verify. I called the number you mentioned on the forum and the cheapest studio available in IC was in China for 430.000 AED. This is as I know also the market price... Should you have studio in international city for 370K, I have a buyer for it.


  15. georgihh

    georgihh New Member

    I haven’t got the number for 370k at the moment but will send you ASAP.
    Anyway I am trying to sell this Mirabella unit in JV, townhouse, 4 bedroom for 2.3mil - what is your opinion?
  16. Sally1980

    Sally1980 New Member

    If there is demand for it, it is worth it. But curently investors buy for 600K in international City one bed and someone I know bought for 800K 2bed in IC, Tameer development ready in 2/3 months. These bargains are more in demand by investors/endusers these days... Also the rule of one familly in a villa does not help sales of such properties... Goodluck
  17. georgihh

    georgihh New Member

    Thanks for the professional reply.
    It is good to know that at 600k for one bedroom and 400k for a studio you can find buyers – maybe this is the bottom
    I will find out for the studio less than 400k and let you know.
    Regarding the villas – you are correct – not moving

    Hi Fran - I agree with you and we should use this as an opportunity to get 'real' info as what is advertised in the paper simply does not reflect the market. What price points are property really being conveyed? Ideally, RERA should consider the publication of the recorded transactions.. (by subscription like they do in the USA and other mature markets... ) These are the real records of actual conveyances... rather than having to rely on 'heresay' - Brokers are reluctant to openly discuss these deals as they percieve them as 'anomalies' but they are not.. They indicate a trend.

    FACT - two studios were sold in IC - at AED 250,000 each!! the original OP price.. The seller was panicd and need the quick cash for their business. They were sold in a matter of days - a local picked them up. You may see more of these kinds of sales as the market flattens out.

    The more accurate data that comes in - the more intelligently you can make a decsion - whether to buy or sell for that matter

    Thanks for you post and initiaitive

    George ,
    Is the above a copy-paste from a newspaper ad ............... Or someone you know .

    Anyways ,I'll give them a call .

    HEY ,on another topic ,Is the 'one family per villa' rule also applicable to this Springs Property ?If so ,then this will be a deterrent for me :confused:

    sasherwani2 New Member

    As far as I know, one villa one family rule does NOT apply to freeholds.. but then again.. this is Dubai.. rules and regulations change with seasons... you invest thinking u'll get a resident visa and a 30% refund on the investment incase you pull out BUT you end up getting "no construction", "no visas" and "no refunds". Becareful..
