Economy Middle East reported that The UAE real estate market is anticipated to reach a value of AED2.6 trillion ($707.86 billion) by the end of 2024.

This extended growth is attributed to the increased interest of high-net-worth individuals (HNWIs), particularly their demand for luxury property investments in Dubai. In the first quarter of 2024, Dubai saw the sale of 105 luxury homes, bringing the city closer to matching last year’s record of 431 transactions of properties worth over $10 million. This performance outpaced prime markets like New York and London.
