Dubai Hills Estate Real Estate Market Report Q1 2022

Written by Adam Gee

As with other family oriented villa communities, there has been a growth in demand over the past year, and Dubai Hills Estate has been no different. Yet whilst demand has been high, the number of transactions has gone down due to there being a lack of available stock. This has resulted in average transaction prices seeing a dramatic increase, with a year on year growth of 12.8%. There has been considerable interest in the more premium sub communities of Dubai Hills Estate, most notably Fairway Vistas and Parkway Vistas, which did see an increase in the number of transactions.

When looking at the more affordable Dubai Hills Estate communities, such as Maple and Sidra, the number of transactions dropped significantly. As owners of these properties tend to be end-users, and there was a high number of transactions that occurred last year, the owners are looking to keep their properties for a longer time period, and are unwilling to sell their properties so soon after purchasing. As such, due to a lack of supply in the market, property prices have increased considerably. Therefore potential buyers are seeing that they can purchase in other areas with more built up area for less price, further contributing to the lack of transactions.

As many of the properties in these communities are either owner occupied, or tenanted, it has meant that there are few properties that come to market vacant on transfer. Therefore properties that do come to market move in ready are able to command higher prices. Overall Dubai Hills Estate is still a highly popular villa community, it is therefore expected that demand will continue allowing prices to further increase. What’s more, homes that are priced right and vacant on transfer will move quickly, with properties move-in ready able to be priced slightly higher.
