Residential and commercial property consultancy Knight Frank recently released a recent report which stated: ‘We anticipate further growth in prime residential prices of 10-15 per cent this year, supported by the limited supply of new apartments, rising population of high-net-worth individuals and strong economic fundamentals,’ further reflecting the confidence in the Dubai property market.
Dubai has also recently been placed seventh in Knight Frank’s Prime International Residential Index’s ranking of the top 10 global cities where the world’s wealthy acquired luxury property in 2013.
