Freehold or leasehold: Which property 49% cheaper to rent in Dubai?

Unknown     Monday, April 20, 2015     2 comments
6-month lag between property prices dropping and rents falling

Leasehold areas in Dubai are far cheaper to rent apartments and villas, than freehold communities.

This is because the former caters to the affordable market segment and the latter to the affluent, according to a new property report.

“A rental comparison between the two areas shows that on an average, apartments are cheaper by 49 per cent and villas 31 per cent in leasehold areas (compared to freehold),” Unitas Consultancy said, in its latest report, ‘Renter’s Ball: The Dynamics of the Tenancy Market in Dubai’.

However, the report said villas experienced higher rental growth rates (20 per cent) when compared to apartments in the last five years; but rates had declined in the last one year.

“As the market adapted to cater to the pent-up demand, a flurry of new villa projects were launched by private and government sector developers.

“In the last year, the dynamics of the villa market have changed with both rents and prices having fallen; whereas apartment rental prices have remained relatively strong,” the report added.

Six-month lag

Property prices, the report said, have hit a 'plateau'.

“There is a strong correlation between sales prices and rents (+ 0.8). Given the fact that sales prices have plateaued and have dropped from the peak, rents appear to be following suit with a lag of approximately six months,” Unitas said.

An analysis of the income distribution among the working population revealed 84 per cent were skewed towards renting, much higher than comparable first world cities such as London (50.4 per cent) and Hong Kong (48.8 per cent).

“While this is partially because freehold ownership is still a relatively new phenomena, it is clear that income distribution levels need to be elevated in order for a wider home ownership base to take place,” the report said, disclosing that 38 per cent of the working class could afford to rent individual units; 17 and 13 per cent could afford to rent one- and two-bed apartments in freehold areas.

The report also revealed that the rental gap between apartments in prime locations and secondary locations was 69 per cent and it was 77 per cent for villa communities.

The highest discount was visible in the two-bed apartment segment, whereas the smallest gap was in the studio market.

Though villas continued to outperform the apartment segment over a five-year horizon in the prime and secondary market, it took a beating in the last 12 months.

“… the worst performer has been prime villa [communities] followed by regular villa communities. Prime properties have had a sluggish performance relative to the rest of Dubai, highlighting the strong demand within the affordable segment,” the report pointed out.

Shah Rukh Khan-endorsed Dubai property launch prices lowest yet

Unknown     Sunday, April 19, 2015     1 comment
Studio units are priced @ Dh284,888; completion in end-2017

An affordable housing price war has begun in Dubai’s real estate market, with a new company upping the ante for a project endorsed by Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan.

Studio apartments in the Royal Estates in Dubai Investment Park (DIP) will soon start selling for Dh284,888, while one-bed units will be offered for Dh575,888.

“The official launch of the apartments will happen in the coming two to three weeks.

“These units are very much in the affordable price range and something that the market has been seeking,” Shahid Rasheed, General Manager, Texture Properties, told Emirates 24|7.

“Our price per square foot stands at Dh580. The response in our pre-launch has been great,” he said, revealing, investors will have to pay a 10 per cent down payment on booking, with the balance payment being paid over 4.5 years in EMIs of nearly Dh3,600 per month.

The first phase of the launch will include three towers, consisting of 1,200 apartments, which are set for completion by end-2017.

Aristocratic Star, Pacific Ventures and Texture are co-developing the development’s apartment building component, worth Dh1.6 billion, according to Parvez Khan, Chairman, Pacific.

In August 2014, Emirates 24|7 reported that Shah Rukh Khan, the second-richest actor in the world with a personal wealth of $600 million, was pitching for affordable housing in Dubai.

“It should be something belonging to the world where I belong. I am a lower middle-class guy… if I wanted a house, a house for myself, what would it be like?

“Please try to make it affordable and try to have a kitchen as a central theme,” the actor said.

Nshama, a real estate developer, has already started selling apartments for Dh349,988 in its Town Square project near Al Barsha, in close proximity to the Arabian Ranches Golf Course.

Craig Plumb, Head of Research, JLL Mena, and Mario Volpi, Managing Director, Ocean View Real Estate, told this website last week that they were expecting other developers to follow suit and launch more affordable units into the market.

In March 2015, Emirates 24|7 reported that Dubai Municipality (DM) had allocated over 100 hectares of land for affordable housing, mostly to meet the demand for dwellings for people earning between Dh3,000 and Dh10,000 per month.

“In just three areas — Muhaisnah 4, Al Qouz 3 and 4 — we allocated land in excess of 100 hectares for affordable housing and that will take up more than 50,000 people. “We have many more areas where similar housing will come up,” Abdulla Mohammed Rafia, Assistant Director General for Engineering and Planning Sector, DM, said.

Khalid bin Kalban, Chief Executive Officer, Dubai Investments, a Dubai stock exchange-listed company, told this website that affordable housing market was going to outshine luxury market segment in 2016.

“I think 2016 onwards there will definitely be a pick-up in affordable housing because of the projects being undertaken by the government such as the Al Maktoum International Airport, Expo 2020 venue development and theme parks in Jebel Ali area,” he said.

Dubai is expected to create over 277,000 new jobs in the run up to the Expo 2020 and may witness an undersupply situation rather than an oversupply.

Moody’s Investors Service, a global ratings agency, has said the government spending on infrastructure and encouraging more foreign investments in various sectors will support the real estate market over the next five years.

The government has announced the new Dubai Metro Route 2020 project - an extension of the Metro’s Red Line from Nakheel Harbour and Tower Metro station to the Expo 2020 site, which will serve Gardens, Discovery Gardens, Al Furjan, Jumeirah Golf Estate, and DIP, which house over 240,000 residents.

Revealed: Which nationality buys property for cash in UAE

Cityscape Abu Dhabi opens April 21, new launches expected

Fifty-four per cent of UAE nationals prefer to pay cash when buying property, according to a new survey by YouGov.

Asians expatriates (39 per cent) take the second place followed by Arab expatriates (37 per cent) and Western expatriates (27 per cent), the survey of 308 residents reveals ahead of three-day Cityscape Abu Dhabi 2015, which begins on April 21.

Besides, 75 per cent of 'first time' property buyers show interest in buying properties in the country with the survey disclosing that 85 per cent of property owners are more likely to be aged over 50.

However, location remains key when investing in the real estate market.

Fifty-one per cent of respondents favoured properties near retail shopping malls followed by those close to beaches, public parks and mosques, the survey said.

“The study highlights continued confidence in the local real estate market with three-quarters of first time buyers preferring to purchase properties in the UAE,” said YouGov’s UAE Managing Director, Kailash Nagdev.

“However customers are looking to invest in more than just a residential unit, which is challenging developers to come up with innovative investment propositions and attractive mortgage schemes to make them affordable for those making their first step onto the property ladder,” he added.

Abu Dhabi plan

The Abu Dhabi Urban Planning Council (UPC) will unveil its new corporate vision at the Cityscape event. The updated vision and mission statements are more aligned with the its mandate as 'guardian of the Abu Dhabi Vision 2030'.

The UPC will also officially announce the projects that have been given the go-ahead in the first quarter 2015, following the recent announcement of 76 Emirates-wide projects during 2014.

Falah Al Ahbabi, the UPC’s Director General, commented: “Abu Dhabi is developing at an incredible pace and we, as government entities, must be proactive in developing the kind of platform required to support this growth.

“This growth should not comprise the sustainability of the Emirate.

“Therefore, Estidama is at the heart of any urban plan or development in Abu Dhabi, whether it be residential, commercial, community or mixed-use.

“Additionally, the UPC always considers the lifestyle component, to ensure that a development is as livable as possible.

“Ultimately, we are transforming Abu Dhabi into a world-class sustainable capital city, to ensure the longevity of the emirate for future generations.”

Since the Estidama programme, a building design methodology for constructing and operating buildings and communities more sustainably, was launched four years ago, a total of 11,881 villas and 921 buildings have been awarded a Pearl Rating.

Indigo’s BMW offer

Indigo Properties, a Dubai-based developer, will offer villa buyers a BMW320i on the purchase of a villa along with an extended payment plan over three years post purchase and handover in its Orange Lake project in Jumeirah Golf Estates.

Buyers can pay 20 per cent of the purchase price on booking the property, with 20 per cent payable on handover and 20 per cent per year for the next three years after the handover.

Prices for the villas start at Dh7 million.

The developer has tied-up with Mashreq for mortgages up to 65 per cent. “The handover of the properties is expected in the next two months,” company CEO Dev Maitra said in a statement.

The project comprises 68 Mediterranean-style villas with themes such as Andalucian, Tuscan, Provencal, Hacienda and Riviera.

New Dubai project to transform Deira into JBR-like destination

Unknown     Friday, April 17, 2015     No comments
Emaar, Dubai Municipality beachfront development is expected to break ground early 2016

Dubai Municipality (DM) will commence work on a mega beachfront development set around Al Mamzar Lake in Deira, which will be akin to Jumeirah Beach Residence, according to a senior government official.

“We are working on the project and the concept design has been agreed on. It is going to be a destination like others areas such as JBR,” Abdulla Mohammed Rafia, Assistant Director General for Engineering and Planning Sector, Dubai Municipality, told Emirates 24|7.

The civic body is working with Emaar Properties, Dubai’s largest developer, on this project. The companies had signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) in May 2014.

“We are expecting to break ground early next year,” he revealed, but declined to give the project cost.

The project, which is being planned around the 53-hectare (131-acre) Al Mamzar Lake, will have waterfront residences, serviced residences, retail amenities, fountains and water features, and water-themed leisure attractions.

In a statement issued in 2014, Rafia said: “As per the MoU, Emaar will conduct the required feasibility and environmental studies, and design a world-class project that is suited to the nature of the land. We will evaluate the report submitted by Emaar to choose a development model that complements Al Mamzar’s current status as one of Dubai’s most popular leisure destinations. Through the proposed project, we aim to add further value to the area, in turn contributing to Dubai’s economy.”

Ahmad Al Matrooshi, Managing Director, Emaar, had also highlighted in the same statement that the development potential of Al Mamzar will add to the “city’s economy by creating another engine of growth in the Deira region.”

Emaar is currently working on a new waterfront project along Dubai Creek, which is being developed through a joint venture with Dubai Holding. It is also working with Dubai World Central to develop Legacy Park, a 70 million square feet golfing and lifestyle development, in close proximity to the World Expo 2020 venue at Al Maktoum International Airport.

Londoners flee steep house prices, head for provinces

Shortage of affordable housing is a major theme of campaigning for the May 7 general election

Expensive housing, an overloaded transport system and a lack of space are driving thousands of Londoners out of the hectic British capital to other, calmer cities such as Birmingham.

The shortage of affordable housing is a major theme of campaigning for the May 7 general election and the National Bureau of Statistics says a record 60,000 people aged 30-39 left London between June 2012 and June 2013.

Rather than treading the well-worn route of relocating from the city to the countryside, many have chosen to move to the central city of Birmingham, Bristol in the southwest, or Manchester in the north.

"Rental prices (in Birmingham) are half of what they are in London," said Kelly Convey, travel blogger for Expedia. "London is becoming exceptionally hard to be able to afford."

Buying a property costs an average of £500,000 in London ($742,000, 695,000 euros), compared to an average of £120,000 in Birmingham.

Despite the employment and lifestyle benefits of the capital, not everyone is willing to spend every last penny on London life.

Journalist Tom Cullen moved to Birmingham in 2013 after living in London for 12 years, setting up an e-magazine,, which reviews food, culture and entertainment in Birmingham.

"Birmingham made me the best offer," he said in a December article for the Independent newspaper.

"Birmingham won through house prices, culture, restaurants and bars... good schools... space, and low start-up costs for new companies."

Chris Pyatt, 29, chose Birmingham to launch his web design company because it is cheaper than London while being close to the capital, which is under an hour and a half away by train.

"It has a big catchment area - because we are in the middle of the country, we are accessible," he said in his office on the top floor of a neo-Georgian building, five minutes' walk from the main railway station.

'Generation who like cities'

With some 1.2 million residents, almost half from ethnic minorities, Birmingham has long been lumbered with a reputation as grey and dull.

The city hit the headlines earlier this year after an analyst on US TV channel Fox News called it a "no-go zone" for non-Muslims, drawing derision from many Britons.

But Birmingham has had something of a renaissance in recent years.

"It's developing into a more attractive city," said Convey. "It's very easy to get around."

Britain's second-biggest city boasts four Michelin-starred restaurants, a symphony orchestra, high quality theatre, concert and shopping venues and proximity to two Premier League football teams.

Meanwhile, Colin Stanbridge, chief executive of the London Chamber of Commerce and Industry, said that delayed commuter trains into the capital were having a "significant impact on business".

"London's transport infrastructure is creaking at the same time as the city's population is booming," Stanbridge said.

Birmingham's city centre was almost completely destroyed by German bombing in World War II and then rebuilt with heavy concrete and highways impossible to cross without walking through darkened underpasses.

But today the city is being regenerated.

Highways have been redesigned and buildings with cutting-edge architecture have sprung up including a new library, the renovated Bullring shopping centre and The Mailbox, a shopping and office development.

The main railway station is being redeveloped and office complexes are spreading rapidly.

The city added 6,000 jobs in 2014, according to Neil Raimi, chief executive of Marketing Birmingham, the city's promotional arm.

"Ten years ago, people in London would have moved progressively a bit further and further out," Raimi said, contrasting that with the current crop of movers.

"There is a generation of people who like cities, don't want to go and live in the countryside," he added.

While conceding that Birmingham is "not exactly the most glamorous of cities", Convey said it still had a strong appeal.

"Everything is accessible," she added. "It is less stressful."
