Apartment prices in Dubai have hit a plateau after months of strong growth, according to a new report by ValuStrat.
The latest ValuStrat Price Index (VPI), which tracks the market performance of residential properties across the emirate, saw a moderate 0.9% monthly increase in October 2022, indicating a slow pace of price growth.
Apartments registered only a 0.6% monthly change, with prices now averaging $244 per sqft, while villa prices went up by 1.2%.
According to ValuStrat, apartments in several areas in Dubai, including International City, Business Bay, Jumeirah Village, Discovery Gardens, Dubai Sports City, Remraam and Dubai Production City, showed no monthly change in capital values.
Capital gains of apartments in most areas in Dubai have not seen any improvement since last year and have been stable on a monthly basis, according to Haider Tuaima, Director and Head of Real Estate Research at ValuStrat.
He commented, “This is mainly due to a fundamental market demand/supply dynamic. When we look at upcoming supply, Dubai Land and Jumeirah Village alone contribute 21% of overall new supply of mainly apartment buildings in the coming two to three years. That, in our opinion, is the main reason why we are not seeing capital growth in those areas, particularly within the E311 and E611 corridors.”
