The Owner’s view – Overview

According to Matt, 2022 predictions can be a bit misleading. This is because you can never fully know how and when the market will change. However, there are some key indicators of the RE- Market. The global economy will be under pressure, there’s no doubt about that. However, Dubai set itself up again in 2022. Dubai has always been a safe haven, when it comes to wellbeing but also when it comes to investment. The city keeps on growing and evolving, it welcomes change and growth.


The Owner’s View – Investing in Dubai

According to Katie, people still want new properties, new developments, they still have faith in Dubai, and that’s something that is really important. People believe that it will be built and that it will be done under a certain timeframe. That’s one reason why investors see Dubai as a “safe haven”. Due to the development of crowdfunding platforms and low-cost portfolio products, Dubai has the most venture capitalists and investors in the region. These platforms are allowing more people to enter the investment market, including those from middle and low-income families. Increasing credit availability, a rise in private equity and a rise in venture capital are also driving middle market growth.
