Dubai Commercial Real Estate & Retail Success

Real Estate Transactions in Dubai have increased by 60 percent on a month to month basis. According to real estate experts in the area and developers, the rapid recovery is not unusual for this area. This is not surprising since Dubai has a track record of recovery in all real estate sectors.


The movement of tourism and businesses starting to come back to the area has allowed a fast recovery with an upward swing in the area. Developers are working around the clock to finish projects and keep up with the demand in the area. According to the statistics, property inquires have increased by 5 times since before the lockdown.
