Property Monitor, the UAE’s leading real estate intelligence platform from Cavendish Maxwell, has released its Dubai House Price Index for March 2019. The index has been tracking the prices of a selection of apartments and villas/townhouses since September 2015.
The index indicates that the average annual house price in Dubai decreased by 12% in March 2019, with some communities registering even higher price declines. Arabian Ranches, Emirates Living, Dubai Silicon Oasis, Jumeirah Islands and Dubai Sports City were some of the communities that registered price declines of more than 12% on average.
Month-on-month, the price decline for March was 1.7% compared to 1.8% in February. House prices in the three months up to March were 5.1% lower than in the previous quarter. Overall, the average house price in Dubai decreased to under AED 2.6 million (AED 2.58 million).
The rate of off-plan apartment transfers remained high in March, as has been the case over the past 12 months. However, the total volume of residential transactions over Q1 2019 was 3% lower than the same period in 2018. Meanwhile, the volume of apartment transfers over Q1 2019 decreased by nearly 14% compared to the same period in the past year.
According to the House Price Index for March, the average apartment price remained relatively stable at AED 1.8 million, with only a marginal change from February, while the average villa/townhouse price decreased to AED 4.5 million. In September 2015, the prices for apartments and villas/townhouses were AED 2.1 million and AED 5.6 million respectively, indicating a decline of 17% and 19%.
The Dubai House Price Index is produced by Property Monitor, a product of Cavendish Maxwell – one of the UAE’s leading property consultancies – and was developed in response to a need for greater market transparency.
