Residential property prices in Dubai fell again during the second half of 2016 and the slowdown is projected to continue. Data from two sets of figures covering the second quarter show that the real estate market is slowing although sales are holding up. However, currency fluctuations are adversely affecting demand from foreign buyers. The data from CBRE shows that it was the sixth consecutive quarter of declines with the average sales rate down 2% quarter on quarter and 12% year on year, with the most significant fall recorded in the upper segment of the market. ‘Prices within the mid-market segment have proven to be far more resilient to this downward rate trend, reflecting the current demand for affordable accommodation in freehold communities,’ the report says. Although sales have held up relatively well, rental values in the mid-market segment of the market in areas like Al Barsha, Oud Metha and Bur Dubai have fallen, reflecting the higher availability of homes on the market. It suggests that the devaluation of major currencies, global economic uncertainty, redundancies and lower accommodation budgets mean that there is likely to be a further softening of demand levels and sales rates in the short term, especially for higher end and larger units. Indeed, the firm predicts that property sales rates are set to fall further by an additional 3% to 5% in the coming quarters although some locations may vary. ‘It is estimated that around 48,000 new residential units, apartments and villas, could enter the Dubai market during the period 2016 to 2018, provided that construction delays are at a minimal,’ said Mat Green, head of research and consulting UAE at CBRE Middle East.
