What to expect from Dubai’s realty?

Dubai Supply vs. Demand

The supply and forecast estimates published has garnered fear in the market, as buyers hold off purchases. However, a closer look shows that supply is well below what was expected. Of the 27,000 units to be handed-over this year only 18% has been. This is important since it causes the expected oversupply to be less severe resulting in price rise. On the other side off plan launches with discounted prices and extended payment plans are keeping the market supplied and prices subdued.So if there is a price rise, it would be met with increase in supply by developers, allowing price movement only within a narrow brand.

Transaction Overview

A closer look at transactional activity shows that in the first six months of 2016 there has been a consistent rise in activity implying a turnaround may be on the horizon. Moreover, mortgages activity have remained stable despite subdued transactional activity which shows that first-time owners are entering the market to take advantage of the price discounts. Another factor to make note is that it is difficult to distinguish between a mortgage transaction and a refinance. Therefore, what may be interpreted to be a consistent number of home-owners, could actually be current home owners trying to stir up liquidity in these turbulent times.On the other hand, rental rates have not fallen nearly as much as the sale prices, pushing returns higher, making Dubai assets more attractive to investors. Regardless of layoffs until now, rental rates have held steady in most communities, indicating underlying strength. However, layoffs in financial services coinciding with the new supply expected to come in the market could potentially cause rental rates to decline further.

The State of Equity Markets

The recent come back in the Dubai Financial Market from its low has indicated that foreword outlook of the economy remains buyout. Historically equity markets have been a leading indicator of economic activity in most markets, and a rebound of 25% from their recent lows is an indicator that real estate prices are expected to follow suit. Although, prices may have bounced of their lows, they are still close to 50% less than their lows. Such subdued market activity remains a concern for investors and indicates continued lack of confidence by the investment community.

Short vs. Long Terms Outlook

The bottoming of the market indicates a buyer’s rush with a gradual price increase. The increase of transactions with government spending will cause a price rise. In addition, the World Expo 2020 and other large infrastructural projects will drive job creation. These indicative price rises do not mean that the market has turned around. A large upcoming supply added with layoffs in select sectors will put pressure on demand and cause further price slips. Also, Dubai may have expanded its budgetary policy; other GCC countries have slashed budgets. This will have an impact on buying patterns further subduing price activity.While the short-term view remains in flux, the long-term view of the economy remains buoyant and dynamic. The consistent rise in population and business activities will counter balance any short-term detrimental effects caused by the oil price crash.
