    As per the recent report released by Asteco, the villa & apartment rents have been decreased by 2% and 3% in the Second Quarter with annual declines of 10% and 12% respectively. Though the government has implemented some rules like 100% foreign ownership of companies outside free zones, 10-year visa for investors & specialists etc.. still the effect isn't seen yet. It would be interesting how investors react to the current scenario

    I thought I read about rents softening in another report as well but someone else on the forum was suggesting that property values were rising and demand was increasing - didnt make sense to me.

    Well, everyone has their own opinion. But, just a couple of days back I have found this article. I guess, this makes sense

  4. So are house/flat prices rising in value, leading to lower rental yields, or are rental yields simply under pressure? I am a little confused.

    So is the UAE property market moving up or down? I am confused :)

    Looking at the current scenario it seems moving down. But you can't judge by taking only the current scenario because every market faces this situation at one point in time. I feel, UAE is facing it now. The situation can be reversed at any time. Who knows? :)
