A few experts have estimate proceeded with pressure on the residential market this year as housing supply makes advances available and the populace growth actually faces a few hiccups. During the current year, assessed impending inventory as of now remains at 46,316 apartments and 10,563 villas and townhouses.
Rental values, supply
In comparison to the last quarter, Dubai’s Q1 rents were “relatively stable,” ValuStrat said citing that the quarter-on-quarter decrease was only less than one percent.
AS of the initial quarter of 2021, average yearly rents for studio apartments stood at 35,000 dirhams ($9,500), while one-bed falts price an average of 52,000 dirhams, whereas three-bedroom apartments cost 114,000 dirhams to rent.
Renting two-bed villas can set tenants back for about 103,000 dirhams a year, whereas three-bed units would ask for a housing budget of 150,000 dirhams per year and four-bedroom properties, 212,000 dirhams.
The average occupancy of residential properties over Dubai was calculated to be about 80 percent.
Within the commercial segment, rental costs for offices did not decrease as much as residential properties, recording a yearly decrease of only 3.2 percent. Asking rents for offices during the first quarter were, however, 13.7 percent lesser in comparison to the rates two years before.

Median asking rents in different areas are less expensive, with those in Business Bay averaging at 815 for every square meter for regular office units estimating under 93 square meters.
