Lynnette Abad, Director of Research & Data at Property Finder, said there has been quite an array of interesting dynamics in the Dubai real estate market these past few months. 
"We have low supply in prime areas where demand is high which has caused multiple buyers and bids on properties. Sale prices in prime areas have risen while rents have consistently stayed the same. Our broker clients are having all time record breaking months. Needless to say, pent up demand, best ever mortgage rates and lower down payments have been the perfect combination to stimulate the Dubai real estate market," stated Abad. 
The top areas for overall sales transactions in Dubai during September 2020 were Tilal al Ghaf, Business Bay, Jumeirah Village Circle, Dubai Marina and Mohammed bin Rashid City. 
"If we look at only off-plan transactions, the top areas were Tilal al Ghaf, Mohammed bin Rashid City, Dubai Creek Harbour and Jumeirah Village Circle.
For secondary property, the top areas for secondary sales transactions in Dubai were Dubai Marina, Jumeirah Village Circle, Town Square, Dubai Sports City and Business Bay.
"When we compare quarters, Q3 had a total of 3,720 mortgage transactions worth AED38.31 billion. When comparing this to Q2, this is a 101.41 percent increase in terms of volume and a 294.95 percent increase in terms of value," explained Abad. 
"When  compared to Q1 2020 this is an increase of 3.88 percent in terms of volume and a 72.96 percent increase in terms of value," she added. 
Abad said this brings the overall total for mortgage transactions this year to 9,140 with a total value of AED 68.05 billion.
Total mortgage transactions for September were 1,381 transactions worth AED9.63 billion. This is a 16.44 per cent increase in volume and a decline of 7.58 per cent in value compared to August, she added.-TradeArabia News Service
