Dubai Marina most popular for buyers in 2018


The Dubai community is the most preferred area for potential home buyers in 2018, according to a report by Property Finder.

It pulled in twice as many searches as Downtown Dubai. 

Palm Jumeirah, Arabian Ranches and Jumeirah Village Circle rounded out the top five locations in the first half of the year. 

For the second half, the top four remained unchanged, but Jumeriah Village Circle slipped four spots and was replaced by Jumeirah Lakes Towers.

The report also found that rental asking prices dropped almost 30 per cent in the last two years. 

It noted that user sentiment toward the off-plan sector was strictly for investment purposes, while the majority preferred the secondary market when it came to purchasing for personal use.
